New Project Started

Since last week, I've made significant strides on my to-do list. The Cosmic Revival quilt? Quilted and done!

Creating a backing for the Comet's Revival quilt  ✔️

Quilting the Comet's Revival quilt ✔️

Make Quilt Labels for the finished quilts  ❌

Bind the Cosmic Cabin so it can be Mailed  ❌

Instead of tackling the binding of my pile of quilts, I felt an irresistible urge to embark on a fresh project from my UFO list. For June, my aim is to wrap up the flimsy for this Diamond Lane pattern from Wilmington Fabrics. For my take on it, I'm weaving in Farmhouse Chic florals along with a duo of complementary rose-colored prints.

Since finishing my quilt last Wednesday, I managed to piece together the corner blocks and the uncomplicated large blocks.

Now, it's time for a couple of dozen of these sashing pieces to take the stage.

So, for the week ahead, my game plan is:

  • Draft the Cricut files for the sashing units.
  • Cut out the needed pieces.
  • Piece together the sashing units.
  • Assemble the central quilt section. 

I'm ready to dive in and stitch up some progress!

  1. Congrats on the finish—looks great!

  2. Cosmic Revival is so cool!! and your new UFO - I like those colors!!!

  3. Cosmic Revival turned out beautifully! Love the new project you are working on. Happy stitching.

  4. It’s so interesting in your newest project, how the sashing pieces make the design come to life. I did one like that , a Bonnie Hunter pattern, several years ago. When I took it off the hanger in the UFO closet, I found a mistake. Yikes! I got it fixed. Glad I noticed the flip of a sashing strip! 😳

    1. Agreed. The sashing definitely makes this design pop. I'm excited to get them finished.

  5. Cosmic Revival is stunning! Good luck in getting the binding on it. Thanks for sharing in Sew & Tell.

  6. Cosmic Revival is a stunning finish and I think the new one will be as well. The sashing looks intricate but fun! Hope you had another great week and earned a couple of more check marks on your list. Thank you for linking with To Do Tuesday.

  7. Cosmic Revival is Gorgeous, Sharon. I look forward to seeing your new project as it progresses - great pattern. Thanks for linking with Monday Musings!
