I have been sewing-just not blogging it seems. I finished up this quilt a long while ago, I just didn't bind it right away. Then with the holidays and Nate's birthday, I kept putting it aside. I even took it up to Quiltbliss with me thinking I may sit and bind there, but I didn't. Funny how that goes. I realized if I didn't focus and get it done I would set it aside until next Christmas.
This quilt is from Simplify by Camille Roskelly, continuing along with sewing though the book. I am still using stash fabric for all these quilts. This is fabric is called Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey for Moda. It came out a few years ago and I bought a bunch of it intending to make a churn dash quilt. Clearly, that never happened, so it ended up here in this quilt.
I am still making everything from stash, it's been good, a feel like I am making a small dent! I can't believe how much fabric I have for backing-it's a bit crazy. I also have made three quilts from the Simply Retro book that are in various stages. I'm trying to focus on finishing over the next few weeks. I went to a quilt retreat, Quiltbliss in Heber a few weeks ago and am inspired to begin a few new projects. A lot of them are scrap projects, which is much needed around here. Even though I have been working from my stash, I haven't been using scraps really. So I have an abundance and they are multiplying on their own it seems. So maybe after I finish the Simplify projects I will begin on the year of the scrap.
