#63 Part 2 of RJR Fabrics On My Cutting Table with Fabulously Fast Quilts

A few days ago I put a post up of the new quilt project I was working on. Well let me tell you I have a lot I want to share!!! (I'll try to keep it short, but with lots of pictures!!lol)

Fabulously Fast Quilts by Amy Smart
 I have looked through the whole book , multiple times,  trying to deciding on which quilt to make. Anyone who read the last post knows I actually let my husband decide, because I couldn't choose.

So the first thing I want to tell you,  I love the look of each of the quilt projects, and can see myself making more of the quilts, maybe all of them, at some point. The title is so accurate too, this quilt is coming together amazingly fast, but you could easily change the title to Fast and Fabulous and it would be spot on as well!!!
Just a thought, I think Square Deal (the quilt patterns name) would make a great sewing retreat or weekend project!

 Second, I made some rookie mistakes, I don't know what it is with me and Log Cabin type blocks, but I seem to mess them up every time! So after I ripped one full row off of 3 blocks (3 out of 4 blocks would be an epic fail if this were a test, lol), and put the strips on the correct sides, because it makes a difference, I finished the remaining blocks without anymore problems!! (lol, probably because I was so afraid of making another mistake, I checked and triple checked every strip!!)

Third, a refresher for anyone new.... I used Jinny Beyer Batiks, and Cotton Supreme Solids from RJR Fabrics to put this quilt top together, and here is the center of the quilt complete!! All that's left are the 2 borders and the top will be finished...... and doesn't it look great next to the pool!!


  1. Beautiful!!! I can't wait to see what you make next!!!

  2. What a beautiful top! I need to get back to my batik stash. . . mix it with my current solid obsession. . . thanks for the inspiration!!

  3. Love the colors. Reminds me of Caribbean waters!

  4. The colors are great. Glad to hear the info on Amy's book. It looks like it has a lot of fun projects.

    1. I'm glad you found the information helpful!! that makes me extremely happy! I will continue to post as I complete more of the quilt projects or try out the block patterns!! I need to make some table runners and may try some of her patterns and just make a single row!!


Thanks for stopping by!! I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment, idea, or question!!
