Quilt Time!

I've been wanting to make a quilt for a while. I feel like enough time has passed since I made the puff quilt that I'm willing to try another one.

My sponsor, Skye Reve Fabrics has some great fat quarter and half yard packs that they've put together which I love. It's so nice when you don't have to scour the aisles wondering which fabrics would work well together. The fabrics I used for this quilt are from the marmalade bundle and I just love them!

So the first thing I did was cut out all my squares. This quilt is 7x7 of 5 inch squares (a total of 49 squares) and then I sewed them together to form rows. Next I sewed all the rows together. I purchased some quilt batting and sewed it to the finished squares. My machine has some decorative stitches on it that I haven't yet tried,so I used this as an opportunity. Using the decorative stitch, I sewed down each row. Check out the pictures below to see how that turned out...I really like it!

I still need to add the back (so some more decorative stitching) and then finish the edges but I'm really happy with how it's coming so far.
