Needle and Thread Thursday!

Don't you love Thursdays?  It's the day where I can just start to feel the weekend coming on, which is always a good thing.  And of course, I love Needle and Thread Thursday because I get to see the awesome projects y'all are working on too!

Remember that broken tooth I had right at the start of the school year?  Well, after getting it fixed, I have continued to have pain (albeit dull and nagging, rather than sharp- but still).  I finally decided that enough is enough and went back to the dentist, which did not turn out to be very much fun.  

I did however, use the rest of my day off to finish up this chevron quilt top.  Incidentally, sewing did wonders for taking my mind off of my aching jaw.  I still have to add a white border to this top, which will make those muted colors pop right out, and keep the warmer color palette looking fresh.

Be on the lookout for a chevron quilt tutorial, since I actually managed to remember to take pictures of this one along the way!  Since it's a tutorial, I wanted to make the post separate from NTT.

Take a look at some of the fantastic links from last week.  It's so tough to choose just three of the sixty (YES, 60!!) links from last week, but here goes-

**As a courtesy to these bloggers, if you want to pin the images I'm featuring, please use the links and pin from the original source.  Thanks a bunch!

Liz at Shush, I'm Quilting shared progress on her Oh, Deer! quilt.  Love the Disappearing Four Patch!  Check out Liz's post to see the awesome backing fabric she has in store for this one.

Janine at Rainbow Hare Quilts shared her Unicorn Days quilt.  The colors in this quilt are so intense, it's almost surreal.  The other photos in her post are gorgeous as well!

Melissa at My Fabric Relish showed off her Giant Star Surround.  Those bright colors with the gray really pop, and the spiral quilting is perfect!

Y'all just knock my socks off every single week!  I can't wait to see what you're working on right now.

Here are the party rules.  You know the drill!

  1. Beautiful highlights from last weeks link-up. HOpe the tooth feels better that you continued to sew!

  2. Your chevrons are looking great!
    Hope your tooth is okay soon. Toothache is so nasty!

  3. Thank you so much for showing off my giant star surround quilt! And thanks so much for hosting such a fun link party! I hope your tooth ache starts to go away soon.

  4. I love your chevron quilt top. I may have to watch for the tutorial and jump on the chevron band-wagon finally and make one! I love the fabrics you used--are those by chance from Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures?? I love her patterns and fabrics!

  5. Chevrons are probably one of my favorite patterns. I can't wait to see your tutorial.

  6. Chevrons are on my to do list so I might have to join in with you on this one! I will wait for the tut so you can do all my calculating;)

  7. Thanks for the share Kelly! And would you believe it's all finished now (phew) AND ive taken some decent photos for once. Loving the chevron - Ive got that on my to-do list as well. Its a toss up between that or pluses for the wee man's cowboy quilt (on the mental to-so list in the far future!). Have a good weekend :-)

  8. Lovely Chevron quilt and quilts from last weeke. As always Kelly thank you for hosting the linky. Have a great weekend. Marie (
