No batting

I finished the Green and White quilt top this afternoon.


I don't have enough fabric to do the top and bottom rows of sashing, so I will have to make do. I also don't have any batting... or backing, for that matter.

This is what it looked like outside earlier today (and it's still snowing):


Our poor little Christmas tree in the back yard waiting to be taken away to the chipper :(

I'm not going anywhere in that weather (and I'd have to wait until I'm at school to baste anyway) so onto other things.

I have an itch to start something new, but I'm trying to exercise some self-control here. And I really do want to finish some other projects that I've already started. So...

Snowman in the Woods...? (been begging to be made since 2009)

or Authentic...? (not quite as old)


What are you working on?

oh my, that looks great, you did a great job. I'd start on the snowmen

So, you decided to go with the sashing. I do like it.
Must be all that snow is trying to look like batting. Keep warm!

That sashing looks really good and ties it all together nicely. I'd think the snowman quilt inside your house is begging to be done as it wants to keep company with all that snow you have outside your windows!

I hope you can hold out and not start something new...so hard....hang tough.

Your quilt is looking wonderful.

Very nice! I started some scrappy string blocks for a Spring wall hanging. I only need 4 and I have 2 done so far. I wanted to sew yesterday but decided against it and was lazy instead.

Like the way it turned out - I still haven't done mine...

I like it with sashing...

You had a bucket full of snow didn't you!!!

We've got some pretty snowfall here too! (As you could see on my Giddy-ful post; love that!!!)
