Here is my WIP update.
Last time, I had 4 projects I was working on.
1) Habitat Quilt–Complete
Although I can’t show this quilt yet (I am waiting for my Modern Quilt Guild Meeting), I can finally say that it is DONE! I have a picture of the back side. I’ll take closer pictures of the quilting, but I used a free motion quilting technique for this one, using 3/4 inch tape as my guide. It was pretty fun to do, and was much faster than trying to do it straight line quilting,
2) Modern Friendship Star Quilt (or Ninja Star Quilt, as my husband calls it) — Complete!
This quilt is finally complete as well! It is an oversized twin quilt, and I featured it in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I wanted to do a new twist to the old Friendship Star, and this is what I came up with:
3) Skill Builder Sampler Blocks
Here are the three latest blocks in the Skill Builder Sampler Series. I wanted to make the string block using the warm and cool colors on either side of the blocks. I like how it turned out.
4) Quilt of Valor II Quilt
I haven’t had much progress with this quilt. But I have begun sewing some of the pieces together. This one will be a slow progressing quilt.
New Quilts I have started:
5) Baby Boy Quilt
I used some DS Quilts prints and Kona Charms (that I received from Sewing Summit) to make this baby boy quilt. I wanted to make a quilt using the squares on point with sashing in between, and lo and behold, Amy Smart had just made a tutorial in the Moda Bake Shop. That made my job a lot easier 🙂 I know that the navy sashing is very bold, but I think I like the effect. Maybe I’ll make this same quilt with a neutral tan sashing, and see how I like that.
6) Another new quilt that I have started is a postage stamp quilt, using my loads of orange, yellow, and pink/red Holly Holderman Dolly Dresses fabric. Yes, I am using the PS I Quilt quilt along as my guide. I am excited to see how this one turns out.
So, I finished two quilts, and I started two quilts. I guess that means I am back to four Works in progress. Thanks for visiting. Go to Lee’s as Freshly Pieced to see more Works in Progress.
