New Work in Progress

I started a new work in progress :)    It's a new Fat Quarter Shop Shortcut Quilt and you know how I love those!!!   As soon as I saw the pattern, I knew just the perfect fabric for it ;)   The pattern uses Fat Quarters and I had leftovers of Gingham Girls  from making the Crossroads Quilt, and I just recently finished up a quilt (haven't shared yet but here's a sneak peek) using Amy Smart's second line, Sunnyside Ave.  and had some leftovers from it as well.   So how perfect to combine the two lines for this new quilt!!!


I am just loving how well Gingham Girls and Sunnyside Ave. play together.   Isn't it so great when fabric designs do that!!!    The fabric combo's are just so fun and every new block combo just makes me smile :)


And I just adore the happy vibrant primary colors of these lines and the wonderful prints that take me back to my childhood.    All of the hand made clothes my mother used to make for me and my twin sister looked like these prints.    And my mom always made our clothes in matching prints, but my sister's clothes were in red and mine in blue so it helped to tell us apart ;)   I gotta admit, we looked pretty cute.  I will have to see if I can find some old pics next time I visit my parents.


I can't wait to get this one all finished up.   I have the blocks done and just need to sash them and get it all quilted.   So fun!!!   And it just makes me so happy that I am also using up more scraps.  Especially as these were larger pieces of scraps, so I still like to keep them in the bundle, but they sometimes get forgotten about when they get bundled back up.   So this just makes me smile ear to ear to be using up not 1 but 2 of those and they look so amazing together!!!!


I get to share the finished Shortcut Quilt at the end of the month so not to long to wait on this one ;)

So what New projects are you working on for this Work in Progress Wednesday??

  1. I am about halfway done(I hope) in cutting out shirt plaids for a quilt for my nephew. He asked for red and blue, so I am adding in some white and off whites for the neutrals for contrast. I dislike cutting units from thrifted shirts because it's not as easy as yardage and takes longer. It is just so difficult finding a variety of fabrics that is not too feminine.
