Quilty weekend

Yesterday was Thimbles and it was so good to see all of the quilty friends there. I decided to work on a quilt top that I blame on Gretchen. She blogged about it and I end up HAVING to do it! I got all 45 fat quarters cut into the appropriate pieces. Now I am working on making the half square triangles-the top calls for 296 of those bad boys. I will be cutting and pressing for awhile. Then I can work on the four patch sections. Basically the design is a variation of Buckeye Beauty. I wanted to sew some today but my sewing chair is not cooperating with my aching back.

Also I need to think about the backing for the last top I completed using the Fresh pattern from Moda. I am planning on piecing the back using the same fabric line. But my brain is not functioning so it will probably have to wait! I think the couch is calling me!

I was reading an earlier post where you mentioned Patchwork Cottage on Sugarloaf. I think we must travel some of the same roads. I look forward to getting to read your blogs. Quilt on...
