I must be crazy...

How else can I explain my current quilting spree???



I have been workign like crazy and have been on top of all my housework!!! I even had an "empty-laundry-basket" moment last week!!! Though it lasted a mere 18 minutes before somebody threw a towel into one of these...


So, the blogland is abundant with Lone star Quilts recently... First it was Elizabeth whose quilt inspired Allison to complete hers... I got lost wandering around the blogland and my fantasy flight through the Lonely galaxy landed me here! And I found what I needed...

An EASY way to do things!!!

And I started on my job...

I used the Silver Spoon Spot On FQ Bundle by Robert Kaufman that I had ordered from Fat Quarter Shop some time back (I guess about 6 months back!)



It looked PERFECT together!!!


And for the neutral - I had the perfect denim-y grey!!!

From my recent trip to Pune.

Here's what I bought on that trip...


Its about 30 yards of fabric... And what was the cost??? 35$!!!
It has 4 dishtowels and 11 twin (and slightly larger) sheets!!!

So, back to the point, see that denim-y grey solid there??? I used that as the neutral... By evening the quilt was basted, ready to be quilted. The binding was ready...

 
And my sewing room looked like a bomb had gone off!!!


Come morning and I managed to get everything in control... And finished the quilt by afternoon!!!

So here's my Lone Star Quilt!!!


I absolutely enjoyed making this one!!!


And the backing is so beautiful!!!! So is the binding, of course!!!
 

And here's how much thread I used to make it!!! I quilted it with Aurifil #4660 (12 wt) with #2425 (50 wt) in the bobbin!!! PERFECT for the color combination! I just loosened the top thread tension so that it sewed beautifully!!! I must mention here that the thread broke ONLY ONCE between (almost) 2 spools worth of quilting! See how little of the thread is on those spools!!!


Now the big question??? What next???

Well, for once I have a plan!!!

It involves this...


some this...


a lot of


and an


with a lot of sweetness and sewing!!!

Any guesses what I'm up to???

And what are you up to???
