Getting a start on a finish

Today, I started work on making the backing for my niece's wedding quilt. I don't have an absolute plan, I am improv piecing with the signature blocks.  It will be a surprise to me when it is finished!  I love improv piecing.

 I joined up with Sheila @ Sheila's Quilt World for her recent Fall themed postcard swap.  I have been given my swap partner's name and I have checked out her blog to get a few ideas of what kind of postcard she may like.  I have a good idea of what I will make for her.  Thanks to Sheila for organizing this fun swap.  It is always great to get to make a new quilty friend.

Speaking of awesome little guild, the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild, had a zippered pouch swap at our recent meeting.  Here is the pouch that I came home with.   Love it!  I already have it filled with all my fabric markers.  I didnt get a photo of the one that I made to swap, my camera had been on the blink.  Maybe Anja, who chose my pouch will have a nice shot of it that I can use.  Stop by her blog and see her latest quilt top, Grey Square Scramble.   I am in love with it! 

Hope you had time to do something quilty today!


  1. I hope your signature quilt goes faster than mine!! I made one for my sister's 25th anniversary and am still hand quilting it, 6 years later!! Cute pouch!

  2. I look forward to seeing your signature wedding quilt as it progresses - what a wonderful gift!

  3. Linda, oh my, I keep seeing this cool zippered "See Through" bag and I love it. Its getting cold again and I'll soon be visiting family in warmer climates!

  4. Cute little pouch Linda and I cant wait to see what you do with the quilt back . Have fun with your postcard .

  5. Your pouch was awesome!! And there is a photo on my blog. Haven't yet decided what I'm going to use it for.

  6. The pouch is adorable and I can't wait to see how the finished wedding quilt looks.
