A Little Progress

My "Sew Sixty" inspiration did not help me accomplish much sewing this week.  Too much time was taken up with work, family events and social activities.  I enjoyed the family events and social activities, so all was not lost! <g>

Some progress has been made on sashing the Granny Squares and here's a quick and sloppy iPad photo to prove it.  I am debating machine quilting this myself or sending it to my local longarm quilter.  I'm strictly a straight-line gal when it comes to machine quilting - utilitarian and fairly quick.  On the other hand, I do think this design would look good with a swirly type design, which would mean longarm quilting.  We'll see what the quilt tells me when it's finished.

I'm off to share this with the Rainbow Scrap quilters at Soscrappy's blog and then I think I need a bit of a nap to recover from my Geocaching adventures this morning!


  1. It's awesome Angie! Another bright and happy scrappy quilt! What a great block!

  2. Looking so bright and happy. A swirly design would be a nice addition, but it is always so satisfying to be personally responsible for a quilt from start to finish.

  3. Your top is looking so beautiful! This will be quite a treasure when complete!

  4. I love granny squares. What a good idea to use these block in the rainbow scrap challenge.
    I do a lot of straight line, walking foot quilting. I can do free motion, but I always come back to my walking foot. I got a lot of ideas from a lady that did 31 days of walking foot quilting ideas. You might want to look at her 31 posts for ideas.

  5. The top is really looking good. I'm sure the quilt will let you know what it wants once you get it all done. Good luck.
