WIP Wednesday

Well, I managed to make some headway on A’s Starburst quilt.  Pieces were cut and I started making the blocks.  Not bad progress–I have five our of the 12 blocks complete. 😀 😀

The goal is to get all 12 blocks done by next week, but with the little ones on Easter break, I’m not sure how much sewing I’m going to be able to get done.

WIP Wednesday: The End and a New Start

Project #2 for the year is done: K’s Pokequilt.

*throws confetti*

I’ve made a decision that the next quilt that I’m doing, I am going to send it out to be quilted because I find it to be waaaaay too stressful to do.  It will cost a bit of money, but it’s worth it. 😀  

A’s quilt is next on the list, so I’ll start cutting the fabric some time this week. 

The Colors!
The design!


Week 6: The Pokequilt (aka WIP Wednesday)

The Pokequilt is done! *cue choir singing*

Funny story, when I started piecing the quilt together last week, I kept looking at my pile of 1.75″ squares and thinking, “Dude, there are a lot of squares left”.  Then I dismissed it because, really, math was never my strong suit.  Then, after I pieced together the 35 blocks, I realized that I needed to make a border of black and white squares around the entire quilt before I added the colored border.  Suddenly those extra squares made sense, LOL.

So, quilt top of the year is done.  I plan on hand quilting this while I start working on A’s quilt top. 

Saw it. Liked it. Had to cross-stitch it.
