Finished It But . . .

This week I worked on using up my stash of fabrics . . . 
I had this stack of precuts plus abijillion more.  And I made this . . . 
Quilt Top:
It turned out much cuter than I expected even with a mistake . . . 
Quilt Opps:
That thankfully was the very last block. My poor doggies are upside down!
I made this in an attempt at using up all those cut blocks.  That were mostly florals.   Which needed to be used.  I certainly stepped out of my comfort zone by putting all these fabrics and themes together. 
And, I was on a roll until I ran out of thread.  So this little number sits and waits for the fabulous border  I have planned. 

But when I'm in a mood to sew I can't be stopped. 
I found a spool of navy thread and I produced these . . . 
Blue Quilt Blocks:
And a close up of a couple of the blocks . . . 
Blue Block 3:
I was using these pre-cuts.  Most of the center blocks were small. 
The centers are 2"
Blue Block 2:
Love how the pink one turned out!
Blue Block 1:
I seriously have no idea where that white thread came from. 
There is no white or even very light grey in this cottage. (that I know  of! ).  I sewed this entire group of blocks with Navy thread. 

I am indeed a Maverick quilter.  

Thanks for coming over.  I'm going back to the sewing room as soon as I finish cooking dinner!  

Tonight I'm linking with . . . 
Crazy Mom at Finish It Friday, Make My Saturday Sweet
and Blue Monday and a few other linky's I'll add later!  HeHe.

I'm going to try really hard to sew tomorrow. I don't even know what I'm going to do yet. I know I have jeans to mend, but I want to sew!

Please drop by and say hello!

I like your style here. The individual squares are so pretty and the upside down one is my favorite. I am in awe of this talent. Thank you for sharing and thanks for the tips on photos and uploading them. Appreciate it. Enjoy your weekend.

Don't you just love when something turns out better than you had expected? Both of your projects look great!

Thank you for visiting my blog! I agree, the quilt does have a great modern feel to it! It might just be my new favorite. . . but then I say that after almost every finish! LOL
