Springing into Fall

The house may be decorated in all the luscious, vibrant colors of Fall but my quilt for Friday's finish seems to be heading in the wrong direction!

Doesn't this look Spring-y?
Wonder Mom purchased this prequilted fabric waaaay was a huge chunk so I cut it into two equal sizes.  They'll make nice baby quilts or lap throws.  I *think* the designer is April Meadows for Moda but you know how my memory is, right?

Here's the other side...I looove me some yellow!

I've decided two things about prequilted fabric.  One, I hate it...the thread they used was awful and ravelly and I swear it was plastic.  Blech!  Two, trying to tack down the binding was like trying to drive the needle through concrete.  What a pain in the butt!  Is that why I only see duffle bags made out of this stuff?! 

I got totally spoiled last week being off work and getting all that sewing done so this week has been something of a letdown...NOT that I'm complaining about having a job, mind you!  Where's that sugar-daddy when I need him?  Oh, that's right, Himself said that's what he is.  Snort!

Soooo....what're you working on?  Did you finish something this week?  Didja, huh, huh!?!?  Sorry, Mama's had a little too much caffeine this morning...

Happy quilting, y'all!


  1. Great quilts. I have not ever done pre-quiltd I have such fun making my own that I have not tried. Though some look cute.

  2. LOL! Love your sense of humour! Great job with the quilt, even if the fabric was a pain in the butt! Now I'm intrigued with your bad mommy search term, I say as my kids are wrestling behind me... :) Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

  3. I mainly use the stuff for bags for all the reasons you mentioned. Good for place mats, too.

    It is pretty. Will make a nice boy quilt. And, it is a finish!

  4. Cute little quilt. Yes I am not a fan of Pre quilted stuff. This one has nice colours at least.

  5. LOL! Know what you mean about the nasty thread. ;D
