little bits

pieces cut...and assembly line in place to work 2 twin size quilts at once. I have assembled one panel of the "little bits" strip and love it. My neck and back won't allow me to sew the second tonight but will finish tomorrow, this quilts comes together nice and quick!

it's time to quilt.....

this will be my first "real" quilt, I have made tie quilts, picnic blankets, baby blankets, etc. but never a real pieced, quilted, and bound quilt. Mt twin boys are getting ready to graduate to "big boy" beds and I thought this was a perfect opportunity to make the "little bits" quilt from the Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts book, check out the flikr group, I plan on displaying my quilt here when finished.

So follow me on my journey of "little bits"

first the fabric.....

since I am making 2 quilts I am planning on using the same main fabric and accents for the "bits" but contrasting backgrounds to be different for each boy.

fabric came today soooo excited to start
next post will be of the "little bits" panel, see you soon
