Wonky Quilt Top Complete!


The Wonky, Wonky Music quilt top is complete!  I am so happy.  I am going to quilt it myself on a long arm.  DH would have it no other way.   I told him that those bow ties were a doozy.  He reminded me that I tend to do that to myself.  Case in point:   hexagons and kimonos.


I have bow ties leftover that I am going to use for the back.

I am trying to get this wonky quilt finished in two weeks.  Naturally, I got the bright idea to make a quilt for Mom for her birthday, which is in a couple of weeks as well.  It is not going to be a difficult quilt.  I have some Heather Bailey Lottie Da design rolls, so I am going to use those to make a Jelly Roll Jam quilt from Fat Quarter Shop.  How fun is that?  I am going to make it 48" by 60" so that it will be a nice lap quilt.  I am starting a new trend in that I am making quilts for family members, LOL!!



I started laying out the strips on my design wall this weekend.   This fabric is so pretty I was so tempted to start sewing these strips.  I must be strong!  I cannot start until I finish the back of Wonky, Wonky Music!  I am even using the same thread so I am practicing serious restraint right now.

See what everyone else is up to this WIP Wednesday!

I love that wonky top - it came out so great! Do you have a go-to longarmer that you use? I'm thinking I might need to send something out for the first time and need some local recommendations :)

Now you sound like me. Once I start looking at the fabrics I can't hold myself back cutting into it and start sewing ;).
