Got Top?

QAL_finished_top
Old Red Barn Co. Quiltalong Top - Heather Bailey Pop Garden fabric

Why yes, I do. My first quilt top in ages and ages. I am so excited. I purchased my a pretty aqua backing fabric and some Warm and Natural Batting. I'm scared to death to make the quilt sandwich and start this baby. I mean, this fella is probably full-sized. I think I had better do some practicing, free motion quilting is such a distant memory. I have discovered that quilting can be immediate gratification - sort of. This is not how I remembered it. I am so stoked - and ready to make more! Yay!

I'm reading and knitting too - more on that later! Have a great weekend!

I wonder if quilting feels faster because knitting can take soooo long (or maybe that's just me).

It looks great! That aqua backing is going to be perfect for it. Make a little doll quilt out of 2 fat quarters to practice your free motion. You can work out the kinks on that one. I can't wait to see it all finished.
