another late night quilt session

Finding time to quilt when you have a day job pretty much leaves you with two options: late night quilt sessions, and oh so short weekends. πŸ™‚ I’m at it again, quilting in the wee hours of the night.

Paige was more than ready to go to bed, but she’s a trooper and waited up for me as she always does. πŸ™‚

One quilt down, and one more to go! I hope to finish quilting my Rainy Days quilt tomorrow night. I’ve already prepped the backing, so all I need to do is throw it on my frame and quilt away. I’m tempted to just bring it in and have the quilting done for me, but that costs money that I’d rather spend on fabric :-}

I wanted to say thank you for your comments on the Rainy Day Quilt; I absolutely love reading your comments! I try to make patterns that are simple because 1) it breaks apart a quilt that may seem daunting and turns it into a doable project and 2) there’s just not enough time to quilt! It’s great having a quilt top pattern that you can finish over a weekend.

I have another simple pattern in the works that I hope to post soon that uses charm squares, so stay tuned. Anyway, that’s it for now. Just wanted to pop in mid-week to say hi!

Happy (late night) quilting! πŸ˜‰

    The Wave pattern is my new favorite and I have some Enchanted Garden prepped to make one:) Loving the rainy day fabric and need to add it to my wish list. I like simple and quick projects, too. I don't have any patience and really like the instant gratification of quick and easy, but fabulous projects:) Thanks for continuing to inspire!!! … and get some sleep:)

    i really want to make that top quilt! I have been eyeing in your blog through the process. I spent all night quilting too. I am with you the simpler the better, espeically since i am still new to this quilting stuff!

    OH WOW, what you have there on your machine right now looks awesome! Perhaps it is OhFransson's pattern. Nice job. Yes, simple is good!

    Please post a pic of your other rainy quilt after it's quilted. I'd love to see what you do with it.

    Hi Jera
    What type of quilting machine do you use ?

    Where can I find a list if all your quilt as you go freebies? I love the heart one you posted a few days ago but can't find it now. When are you going to host a retreat ? I will come from Canada.
