It's a beautiful, sunny day here in northern Iowa! Temps are in the 30's, and there is very little wind. Very nice weather for January! I have been sewing in the evenings... some nights I have to drag myself away from the couch... Seems like I would rather lie around and watch TV.... Oh well...... I did manage to finish this quilt top:
It's a tutorial I found online, the quilt is called "Growing Up Odd". Cute name. I kind of did grow up odd. :) Anyhow, you can find the tutorial here. I used 1.5 inch strips, and made less blocks. I think mine measures about 44"x55".
I also got the "Film at Five Quilt" back from the quilter. It too is from "Wedding Dress Blue" blog, and the link to this tutorial is here. I know I've said this before, but she has lots of great tutorials for using up scraps.
Mine should really be called "Film at Four", since I made it 4 blocks x 4 blocks, rather than 5 x 5. I used navy and white gingham checks for the binding. Something I've had in my stash for probably 20 years....... :) I could tell it was 100% cotton though.... not like most gingham out there. Why is it that most gingham is a cotton/poly blend?
Lots of bright sunlight and shadows today..........not the best for pictures, but better than taking them indoors!
Linking up to Finish It Up Friday....... on Saturday!
