Quilt the Book : Sweet Cheeks


Well I did it, I finished my first quilt for my Quilt the Book project! Of course it has taken me nearly a month to actually post about it, but life with a 2.5 year old and 5 month old doesn't allow for much blogging time, when my free time I want to sew more often than not.

I decided that I am not going to go in any particular order, so I decided on Sweet Cheeks, since I've had this Green Eggs and Ham fabric for about a year and just didn't know what to do with it. And this pattern just seemed like a perfect fit. After adding a few other fabrics to round out colors, I was set. This quilt was sourced 100% from my stash, including the backing and binding. (The batting as well, I love making frankenbatting and it's a great way to use up scraps!)

I begin doing free motion quilting in the large square and was really getting into. Well then the pin on my FMQ foot broke and since I just wanted to finish this quilt so I could donate it to my quilt guild the next day I decided to just do a different type of quilting in the different blocks. Plus this was a great way to practice some fun quilting.

Now I have a start on my Quilt the Book project and now it's time to start planning the next quilt!

Happy Sewing and Quilting!
