Vikings Quilt: It’s All Done!

I did it! It is complete and ready to be mailed out tomorrow! I’m in love with it! It makes me miss living in Minnesota a little! Not that I’m a football fan or anything, but it just reminds me of Minnesota. I’m super happy I went with gold thread. It really makes the sashing pop!

Viking’s Quilt: Top Is Pieced!

I finally did it! Between waiting on fabric, and then returning fabric, and then finding out they never had the right fabric and re-ordering it from a different vendor, and then that fabric being delayed by the weather, it took me quite a while to piece this! I will at least start the quilting today. I wanted to start it last night, but I ended up going to a class for embroidery software this morning, and yesterday I had the job interview. I’ve just been running around a mile a minute. Now that I am back home and sewing, I know I can power through a big chunk of this tonight! Wish me luck!

Vikings Quilt: It’s Coming Along Alright

I have had such a busy day. I’ve been running around all morning, and then I had to go run around after lunch, but I am home now. I have a sewing class tomorrow at 8:30am so I cannot stay up too late, but I do want to finish the top tonight. I have until Tuesday to mail it out, but ideally I can mail it out tomorrow. We’ll just have to wait and see!

Vikings Quilt: First Blocks Are Done

I just finished the first blocks of the quilt, and I’m glad I added the tonal fabric to just kind of mix things up. I have 72 blocks to make, so I’m 3 down and 69 to go. I’m still waiting on a second Viking’s themed fabric to help mix things up. It has the actual Viking’s head instead of the helmet. I feel so Minnesotan right now!

Vikings Quilt: It Has Begun!

So, everyone knows I’m a big bright shiny star, and now that I have finished one quilt today, I have to start the next one! It’s going to be a Minnesota Viking’s themed quilt and it makes me feel like I am back in Minnesota! I cannot wait to start cutting tonight! If you want one yourself, here is the listing for a Throw Size on Etsy!
