I’ve finally finished my Round 1 quilts in the Old Red Barn Quilt Along. The Quilt Along is on Round 4 now and I may jump back in to join them (though I may wait until after the holidays).

surfandturf1These pictures are just one of the lap sized quilts I made. I cut first and read directions later. I didn’t realize it would make a bed-sized quilt. I had no desire to quilt another bed-sized quilt nor did I need one in the fabulous fabrics I picked. (I live with boys, you see. I’m still under orders to make a wild animal quilt. The Amy Schimler chickens and Heather Ross fish weren’t going to cut it for the boy in question, however they did help me name the quilt “Surf and Turf”.) So I made two lap sized quilts. The second one is for sale in the gallery where I work. I love the fabrics. I picked every one of the top fabrics from my stash. It just goes to show that you can never have too much fabric. If you love it, you’ll find the perfect quilt for it!

    It has turned out beautifully. I hope you enjoy the wild animals when you get a chance at them. They sound like fun.
