Work-in-Progress ~ Easy as Pie Quilt

I finally got the itch to make another quilt after reading about this one on Crazy Mom Quilts. I loved the look of hers and how easy it seemed to be. (And so far so good! Just imagine it without the wrinkles...)
 I used a lot of fabrics that I had in my stash, but did make a fabric run for a few more, since I didn't have enough in this color scheme.

Below is what I started with. The first picture shows the fabrics I definitely wanted/had to use.
 These pieces were ones I wasn't too sure about...but ended up using anyway.
I still needed more. So I bought these, which I think 
are really pretty.
 I threw in a couple Mickey Mouse squares for my kids.
 And now that the top is done, I need to get to work basting the quilt sandwich. I am not sure when I'm going to get to it because we have a busy couple weeks ahead of us here, but I'm hoping to do it soon. Trust me, I'll be thinking about it! I actually go to bed thinking about my projects-in-progress.  Like, Will this fabric go well with this one? And I also imagine myself doing things like piecing and basting - like actually going through the motions. Do other people do this too??
I'm happy to be linking up here today!

  1. Hey Mary Jo! I really like the quilt. The Easy as Pie Quilt is one that I'd like to make someday too....it's on my list! Ha-ha! I like all of your fabric choices. I used that red & white circle one for a dress I made - you can see it here: http://craftersnotebook.blogspot.com/2011/03/last-dress-for-now.html - I love that print!

    I'm always thinking about my sewing projects and how I never have enough time to do as many as I would like to do!!
