Milk and Cookies ~ Part II

I've made good progress with my current quilt project:


Since this photo was taken I have added another row of squares to the length of the quilt to better balance the proportions of the quilt size.  I have also pieced a quilt back with some super cute Sherbet Pips fabric ... and basted. 


And so today is a quilting day:


I like to think that I am on the home stretch with all horizontal lines now completed even though they are the shorter quilting rows.  Once the majority of the basting pins are removed it does seem to speed things up.

A limited number of Aunty Cookie screen printed fabric bundles ~ as used in this quilt ~ are now listed in Shannon's Etsy Store:  HERE   SOLD

Hoping your Thursday is a happy one!

  1. It's going to be a beautiful quilt. I love the colours and patterns you used (the Australian fabrics are especially great) and I like the idea of putting a row of smaller squares in the quilt.

  7. I really like the colors in this one. Even though they are not too bright, they are still lively and fun. Now I must go look at that Auntie Cookie fabric!

  9. You always mix the most interesting prints and colors that I would never attempt -- and they look gorgeous every time.
