Block #2, the Greek Cross, for the Summer Sampler Quilt. I'm enjoying working with these solids for the Summer Sampler Series. I'm going to catch up on my other blocks this week.
Compassion Quilt for my friend - I'm using the Potpourri Palette from Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush fabric line and the Urban Cabin pattern by Atkinson Designs for this quilt. I actually goofed up on the pattern and I'm pretty bummed about it. The pattern says to use two different fabrics in each of the blocks but I was not paying attention and sewed all mine up with the same fabric in each block. My husband thinks I should take them all apart and redo it but I just can't imagine doing that. I have a love/hate relationship with my seam ripper and the thought of ripping out all those seams makes me crazy. What a waste of time. Do you think it looks ok? It would look so much better if the fabrics were more mixed up like the pattern calls for. You know, I may have just talked myself into taking them apart and rearranging them. I'm never going to be happy with this quilt if I don't and I won't feel 100% happy when I give it to my friend if I know I goofed up on it.
Purple for The Grandmomma - haven't made any further progress on this one.
Optical Illusion block - I just have to try this. Inspiredbyfelix made a gorgeous block out of red and white and I'm so intrigued by it. She was kind enough to send me her instructions and now I'm dying to try it out. I hope mine turns out as beautiful as hers is.
Begging for a Backing:
Loulouthi - I decided what I'm going to do on the back of this.
Begging for a Binding:
Red/White Wonky Star - I have the quilt squared up and the binding made, now I just have to attach it. I can't WAIT to have this one finished and on my bed. It's 103" x 103" - yikes! Wonder how long it will take to get the binding on that one.
Superman/Batman - binding is made but that's it.
Baby Hooty - still waiting.
On the Bubble:
Rubik's Crush - getting closer to starting this one! yeah!
Fifi & Fido - 100 Quilts for Kids - thinking...
On the lookout - I've got my eye out for the perfect fabric to make:
Swoon - auditioning fabric on a daily basis - still looking.
