Progress on a new quilt this week, and lots done last night at Open Sew with @kathleenbaden at the @villagefabricshop with all the ladies! Basic courthouse steps, but there will be a twist when I piece them together. The inner blocks have yet to be squared up, and outer blocks in progress. I didnt have much of a plan when I started, but it's been coming together slowly. #quilting #konacotton #aurifil #aurifilthread #sewing #piecing #machinepieced #machinepiecing #quilt #quilttop #makemodern #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsapril2017 ...

Tools & progress. New cutting mat and rotary cutter although I should have replaced the blade on the old one long ago, but I like holding this one. #quilt #machinepieced ##machinepiecing #konacotton #omnigrid #olfa #piecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #courthousesteps #modernquilting #modernquilts #modernquilt #makemodern #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsapril2017 ...

Piles of progress! My self imposed goal is to be finished piecing this by the end of next week, so that I can be quilting it on a brief retreat with my Open Sew gang. #sewing #quilt #piecing #machinepieced #machinepiecing #courthousesteps #aurifil #aurifilthread #konacotton #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsapril2017 ...

And I thought my last quilt had a lot of threads to bury. This one has threads to bury for days, but I'm saving it for TV time at night. #sewing #quilt #quilting #makemodern #makersgunnamake #freespiritvoile #modernquilting #modernquilts #aurifil #aurifilthread #machinequilted #machinequilting #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsapril2017 ...

Crinkly quilt! A tree fell on our driveway and my iron died, but on the bright side there's this. #quilt #quilting #sewing #aurifil #aurifilthread #konacotton #makemodern #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #originalpattern #handmade #courthousesteps #warmandnaturalbatting #freespiritvoile #alldone #stephskardalquiltsapril2017 ...

Binding time, woohoo! Went with white here since I don't have too much of the other colors left. #binding #quilt #quilting #sewing #makemodern #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #originalpattern #machinepieced #machinequilted #stephskardalquiltsapril2017 #stephskardalquiltshome ...

And in other activities... Because everyone is sick, and I just feel like a normal ~35 weeks pregnant, I got some sewing in. There's no turning back now on my piecing together of these courthouse step-like blocks! #sewing #quilt #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #konacotton #modernquilts #modernquilting #modernquilt #makemodern #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltsapril2017 ...

Happy Monday. Quilt top is finished, it went faster than I thought. I was considering a border, but it's already big enough for me to machine quilt, especially since I'll make an attempt at some free motion quilting. Now I better get to those mom chores that I've been avoiding. #sewing #sew #quilt #quilttop #aurifil #aurifilthread #konacotton #makemodern #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilting #modernquilts #modernquilt #originalpattern #stephskardalquiltsapril2017 ...

Ahead of schedule! Started just a few walking foot quilting lines today, saving free motion for the white space. #quiltinprogress #sewing #sew #quilt #quilttop #aurifil #aurifilthread #konacotton #makemodern #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilting #modernquilts #modernquilt #originalpattern #stephskardalquiltsapril2017 ...
