Skipper Quilt Along: Week 7 with a Change of Plans from A Little Bit Biased

Welcome to week 7 of the Skipper Quilt Along! 

Now don't freak out.
I've been working a week ahead of you guys so I can have a post ready each week and as I was doing this weeks assignment I thought, "This is a lot."  Now granted, I am doing the twin size quilt so there's a lot more to it than the baby or throw sizes but with laying out all 84 blocks, sewing all the rows together, pressing all the seams open, then sewing all the rows together with the sashing strips in between, and ...

SKIPPER QUILT ALONG: WEEK 5 from A Little Bit Biased

Hey Hey!  Happy Monday friends!
Anyone else on Spring Break right now?
Ours starts today.  We are having a staycation because we are going to Japan this Summer and are trying to save $$.  Me and the kids are super excited to see that part of the world!  My husband served a 2-year mission there many years ago so he is super excited to go back and show us around.  Also, my sister-in-law is Japanese so we will get to visit her family.  Should be fun!

Anyways, welcome to week 5 of the Skipper Quilt Along!

Skipper Quilt Along: Week 4 + Giveaway from A Little Bit Biased

Good morning friends!
It's week 4 of the Skipper Quilt Along and I've got a fun giveaway for you this week!

My friends at IronEZ reached out to me the other day to see if they could donate one of their Ironing Board Spray Bottle Holders to one of my followers and I knew it was something I wanted to give to my Quilt Along friends!  I've had one for about a year now and love it!

The holder clips onto your ironing board so your spray bottles won't fall off while ironing (#quilterproblems, am I ...

Skipper Quilt Along: Week 3 from A Little Bit Biased

Welcome to week 3 of the Skipper Quilt Along!  

I've been thinking this past week that one of the things I love about Quilt Alongs is that if I stay caught up I'm guaranteed to have a quilt top in a few short weeks!  I just gotta keep pluggin' away!   

I hope you're finding the assignments in the Skipper Quilt Along doable.
I'm making a twin size quilt and found that it took just an hour or two to make my 16 blocks.

But time is precious. 

So today I want to refer you to a ...

Skipper Quilt Along: Week 2 from A Little Bit Biased

Happy Monday friends!  Welcome to week 2 of the Skipper Quilt Along!
I hope you all had fun picking out and cutting your fabrics last week.

Here's the plan for this week:

Baby: make 4 blocks.
Throw: make 8 blocks.
Twin: make 16 blocks.
Queen: make 24 blocks.

I've broken down the number of blocks you need to make each week 
into an amount divisible by 4 - since each strip set makes 4 blocks.

They're pretty quick and fun to make!

You'll find as you're making these blocks that you have some fun triangles left ...
