Glow Happy Quilt Top - DONE!

Lest you think that I cleaned up my sewing room purely for aesthetics and was too afraid to go in and mess it up, I'm happy to report that due to my newly organized space I have been MOST productive.


Since I last posted, I have been a busy bee.  Mostly I have been working on stuff for the shop.  YES.  I said it!  I have been pushing myself a bit more than usual and have really made an effort to try out some patterns I got and just make some stuff.  It certainly helped that I had all my fabric in order and could see that I certainly had enough stash to start.  :)

In between bouts of shop sewing, I did spend time downstairs with the family and got the rest of the hand embroidery work done on my last two lantern chains so that I could finish off my Glow Happy quilt.  The fact that this is all pieced now gives me great satisfaction (and excitement) that it will indeed be finished completely and ready to enjoy this coming Christmas.

Anyone else spend their holiday weekend (in whole or in part) behind a sewing machine?  I'd love to hear about it!  :)

Gorgeous quilt! And I love the embroidery :) I spent the whole weekend at the sewing machine - no regrets! I'm working on a surprise photo quilt!

Just beautiful! The colors play so nicely in their rows and with each other. Great job.

I love the colors!!!! Is this a block, or the whole quilt?

Gorgeous! How satisfying this must feel to be all organzied and productive. I think I am a little jealous. I wish I had a spare room to make into a craft room. Sigh. I shall live vicariously through you and maybe our shared pinterest boards. :)

That's so pretty! I can't wait to start quilting! I had some great successes and some massive failures in the sewing room this weekend. I'll post about it on my blog soonish.
