May Roses Pattern, featuring Sunny Side Up by Island Batik

I had a request from the local quilt shop where I work to add a smaller size to my May Roses Pattern, so I got to work and got that done.

I'm really glad that this top is only 48 x 48 because I only had a weekend to get it quilted and ready for the Willamette Valley Quilt Festival!  For the May Roses block I did a curvy outline around the patches in the center.

For the chain blocks I did a diagonal curve through the center of the dark blue, and a loop in the yellow print.

For the inner border, I quilted a swirl with the yellow thread, then a meander in the border.  I just love the border fabric, the cherries in it are so cute!

I ordered the Como Blue Color Builder box by Aurifil from the Fat Quarter Shop earlier this month and it had the perfect shade of blue for this quilt!

So, now the quilt is off with the rest of the samples, kits and products from Threads That Bind and is headed off to the quilt festival for the weekend!  I do have the pattern available in my Etsy shop, and with it you can make this quilt in your choice of two sizes - 48 x 48 or 61 x 61.  This has a lot of half square triangles, and it's set diagonally so you piece the setting triangles.  It's not super hard, but you do have to pay attention to get all the triangles sewn together properly!

Just click the image above if you would like to find out more about my May Roses pattern!

I had it ready for quilting when I was asked for a photo me in my studio so Island Batik could post an intro on their blog.  With a little luck, the sunshine came out and I was able to get a picture of me with my finished top!  Go ahead and check out the interview - you might find out a few fun facts about me.  Notice how I dressed to match my quilt - not on purpose, but it is one of my favorite color combinations!

Now I'm off to put the finishing touches on the Stepping Stones Sampler lesson that is coming out on February 1!  If you haven't signed up yet we've only been getting our fabrics together so go ahead, click the link on the sidebar and sign up!

Making progress on my list...

I'm glad to say that I am making good progress on my list!  So far I've actually finished 4 of the projects, and have moved a few of them along in the process.  I realize that at least 4 of them are long term projects so I probably need to either set some deadlines or figure out some way of making sure they get worked on in due time as well.  Here is what my list looks like at the moment:

I've been dating the progress I make on each project so I can see how recently I've been working on them.  I feel like the list is really helping me to focus on what needs done and I think I am getting things under control in my sewing room, which is fabulous!

I finished this cute little quilt last night - I was very happy to find some fabric that was perfect for the binding in my stash!

The little scenes in this are so cute!  I cut up the other panel and used several of the pieces in other projects.  This one, I thought would be a fun lap quilt or wall hanging.  (It is available in my Etsy shop - Domestic Diva Quilt)

I'm not a Domestic Diva, but I think this fabric is super cute!
I love the mint green and chocolate brown in it, as well as the touches of red.

For the backing I was able to use a piece of a vintage sheet from my stash.  It was the perfect color and perfect for this project.
And the cute cupcake print in the corners is pretty yummy as well!  I quilted it in a loose meander using a variegated 50 wt thread by Aurifil.  Then I found the perfect green for the binding in my stash. Yay for being able to finish this project without having to make a shopping trip!

Linking up with Jennifer for Wednesday Wait Loss!  Don't wait, join up and start working on some of those projects that you want to get finished!
