Moving right along...

I finshed my one patch tops.  I really like them because they are like mini-collections of antique fabrics.  Each square is 1 inch.

Here are latest 4 finishes all together.

While on this theme, I cut out pieces for a brick-work scrappy quilt.  For this one I chose fall colors--browns, rusts, cheddar.  It is layed out and ready to stitch.  the finished size of the rectangles will be 1 x 2.25 inches.

I am trying to get a bunch of tops done this month in anticipation of my craft shows in November and December.  I have to start early and pace myself; I can't wait until the last minute.  Here is the list of what I plan to make.  Six quilts down, eight to go.


  1. Love your list, you are knocking them right out!

  2. You are just too organized! *wink* All of them are really cute and should sell well this fall! ---"Love"

  3. Good for you, planning ahead. Getting them done a little at a time is way better than a last minute rush. They are all wonderful little gems!

  4. They are all so very cute. Keep working on that list!

  5. I've enjoyed looking at your blog this evening and I also enjoy making quilts from vintage fabrics. It's so fun! I will add you to my favorites!

  9. Your little quilts always inspire and excite me. I love vintage or antique look since I usually can't afford the real thing.
