Stick a Salad Fork In It

Ta da! Scrappy Trips is done. Well, the top and backing are done. I think I messed up the top section layout, but I'm leaving it. It's a scrappy quilt. Hopefully by the time this posts, Scrappy Trips and several other quilt tops and backings are headed over to Eagle Mountain Quilting. I've used this quilting service for years and highly recommend them. They are super fast and very economical. Even with shipping costs, I can't get local quilting done for the price and turnaround. Not to mention they are spectacular quilters. They're having a 15% off special through February if you send them two tops. And, if you spend over $50, they'll ship your quilts back to you free.

So here's my stack of tops and backs ready to roll to Utah. Lucky ducks. I wouldn't mind a bit of downhill skiing in Utah. Eagle Mountain is only about 90 minutes from Park City and they're getting fresh powder today. I usually struggle with quilt backs, but only one had to be pieced. Love those baby quilts and just one hunk of fabric for the back. I unearthed some 54" wide cotton that worked like a charm.

Another finish for AAQI. There are only a few more months to make quilts for this organization. One of Yumi's quilts is going to be in their auction. I'll link it up when it goes live. Go Yumi! I have an idea for another quilt that I plan to start today.

In my huge tote of tops and orphan blocks are pieces of old T-shirts. One day these might turn into a T-shirt quilt. I researched yesterday how to accomplish this and it seemed pretty easy. Now to see if I have enough pieces to make a quilt. I also found some fun heart blocks that I may do something with for Valentine's Day. Never a dull moment around here. Happy Friday!
