Focus on Frolic

I finally had a focused day of sewing. Lately I've just worked on random projects and haven't finished anything. The sewing itself is relaxing, but the need to finish something finally got the best of me.

Today I spent about 6 hours in my sewing room and finished up a quilt top - as well as worked on a couple of other smaller things.

This quilt is made from the Frolic line of fabrics from Moda. I just love Moda; this particular fabric feels so silky smooth and was a dream to sew. The center was made out of "turnovers" paired up with an antique beige that looks a little like tea-dyed. I used an off-set layout just to give it a different look.

I'm thinking about putting a cuddly backing on this, like Minkee. The binding is the same dark brown as the inner border. Ready to quilt this one!

The other things that I worked on included making 2 more blocks for an upcoming block exchange. I now have 6 of the 13 done. Maybe I'll get a couple more done tomorrow. We are getting together on June 15 to exchange them.

And I made Disappearing 9 Patch blocks using some gorgeous fabric that I got as a birthday gift. I'll show those off once they are assembled into a quilt top.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. That is gorgeous. I have a bunch of frolic fq and yardage waiting for me to make something with it. I'm hoarding it.

  2. What a lovely pattern with turnovers. I have a few and couldn't come up with a good idea. Now, you've got my mind really going!!!

  3. That is so beautiful! I love it!
