I’m two weeks into the American Patchwork & Quilting quilt along and wanted to share my progress! The last few weeks I’ve had the stomach flu and a cold, so I haven’t gotten very much sewing done, but I’m on the mend and tackled a bit today!
I cut a stack of Christmas-theme fat quarters to get that many strips. I’m going on a quilt retreat next weekend and am glad I took the time to cut all the strips, so I can concentrate on piecing.
I couldn’t wait to get a little piecing done, though! A quilt like this is perfect for chain-piecing. I put a handful of strips in a pile and sewed them together randomly. I love the fabrics together, so I wasn’t too picky with what fabrics went together.
I hope to make lots of progress on this quilt next weekend! I’m sure I’ll be posting pics from the retreat on Instagram, so follow me there!
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
I’d love for you to follow me on Instagram @lindsmayland to connect more!
