Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE

Welcome to Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE.  Hard to believe it is November already, and I guess now the serious Christmas sewing starts for some.  There may be another Christmas decoration or two in my future, but definitely no Christmas quilts this year. 

So, my sewing effort the past few days has been another Anna Maria quilt.  Well to be precise, this is going to be the backing of the quilt top I finished a couple of weeks ago.  I decided to go all out and really make a dent in my stash, meaning I will have a reversible quilt.

Probably the quickest quilt I have ever sewn, this is simply 10" squares and a border of Tula Pink fabric I had left over from backing my Liberty Bloomsbury. which can be trimmed down once it has been quilted.  I was determined to use what was in my stash rather than buying more for this quilt.

It's your turn to share now.  It doesn't matter if it's embroidery, a quilt, applique or epp, or some other stitched or sewn project.  It can be a start, a finish or just a wip.  All we ask is that you follow these guidelines when linking up:

    1. good way to use up some 10 inch blocks - I have done that with 5" charms. I will link up as soon as it lets me :)

    2. Reversible quilts are great. Your backing is fun and colorful.

    3. You've done a very good job of that backing I'm it will make a great two sided quilt. Some of my customers make backings nearly as detailed as the fronts!

    4. How are you ever going to decide which is the top side? They are both so pretty.


    5. You're right, the back is as gorgeous as the front! You'll get twice the amount of enjoyment out of this one Julie!

    6. Oh, I need to do several of these and whittle down that scrap box.

    7. Love both sides of your AMH quilt! And so satifying using the stash.

    8. Well done on using just your stash, love both sides of the quilt, so bright and cheerful.

    9. I like the pieced back of squares, 10" is a good size to show off the individual fabrics. Now, did you have to mention Christmas!! How how on earth is it coming up to that time of year already!
