MareMare - I like your fabric pull!  I looked at the link - that looks awesome, but also intimidates the heck out of me.  The quilt for your aunt looks really nice, even if it's not your taste.  I recently sent a quilt out to a longarmer so I could have minky backing (without me wanting to scream). I love the results, though it's not something I can afford to do with every quilt - it's a nice treat

Here's a blog post that breaks it down into how the smaller pieces will be made, I found it very...calming I guess to remove some of the anxiety and know it's more doable than it initially looks!

Those are both really  nice Sloth.  I like the idea of making a top each month from scraps.

My current goal is finish tops I have started, and slowly I'll get backing for them too.  My problem is I don't keep much background fabrics around, so I'm going to have to buy some

My idea for the year is toget at least one top a month finished from the stack of tops. As well as,one from the scrap bins. We'll see how quickly i get... Did you see that?  A glitter squirrel... Distracted.

Wow, that skill builder quilt is neat! Bookmarking that for the future when I feel more confident about my skills! Shocked

I decided to make some pillows from some leftovers from the photo quilt so I could practice some hand quilting before doing it on the big one. Tons of uneven stitches, but I'm happy with them and it was great practice! (I actually made two of the triangle pillows, but didn't have another insert)

I'm getting closer and closer to finishing my jeans quilt! I literally only have to do one more seam and the top will be finished, but of course I ran over a pin and my (last) needle broke. I need to get into town this Saturday to get some backing fabric. I kind of want to fold the backing fabric to the front for the border as well, but the internet says that method is not suitable for full size quilts. Does anyone know of any specific reason why? It seems a lot easier than any other binding method. This is the first time I'm going to bind a quilt on my own, without my mum or sewing teacher, and it doesn't have to be absolutely perfect, the top isn't either.
