We are starting the 7th week of working on our unfinished quilts. I’m so happy I’m getting some of my older quilts finished. I can’t believe I only have 2 left on my list! Have you made some time to work on your older unfinished quilts?

My goal was to work on my Stepping Stone quilt! I finished the top, basted and started quilting this 85 x 85 inch quilt. I realized this is the largest quilt I’ve made so far.
So I decided to quilt it with straight lines diagonally, both directions to make a criss-cross pattern. I used my Hera marker to mark out my lines, using the squares and the 45 degree line on my ruler to help mark out my lines.
This was my first time quilting diagonally, and I’m loving how it’s turning out. It’s keeping very little bulk in my small throat machine.
THIS WEEKS GOALS:
This week my goal is to finish quilting this Stepping Stone quilt and start working on the binding! I actually made the binding strips last week. So I’ll be all ready to bind when I’m done quilting.
I’m also hoping to cut out the fabric for my Next Quilt Pattern! I had purchased a ton of these Atrium fabrics by Joel Dewberry, when purchasing fabrics for my daughters twin size quilt. I made it a few years back. I’m really trying to use up my fabric stash this year, so I think these will work perfectly. You can make this new pattern with 6 main colors and a background or it’s Fat Quarter(or 1/3 yard cut) friendly.
