First off, I am working on a new sample quilt for my good friends at Moda. They are kitting up this super fun Hallo-Harvest quilt using the same named fabric by Basic Grey set to release in June. I don't think I have ever made a Halloween quilt before, so this is a fun first. And how great are those bats and stars!!! Glad I have my Alphabitties for this quilt, because there are a lot of little pieces to keep straight ;)
My second new project is a Charity Quilt for UQSM. I will be teaching there in April, (which I am so excited for!!!) and they hold a quilt challenge/auction to raise funds for Sew Much Hope. The challenge fabric for this year was 8 prints from Jen Kingwell's Looking Foward fabric line. I thought the bright happy colors were just perfect for a fun modern pattern, so I decided on my Back to Basics design. And I figured, since I had so much fun doing a black background on my bright happy prints in my Pave the Way quilt back here, why not do another black background on these happy, bright prints. I am loving where this is going!!!
And then I just couldn't not use up every little piece. So I cut up all the leftover Looking Foward fabric I had into 3 1/2" squares and cut some grey solid squares as well. I am thinking simple patchwork. Enter new WIP number 3. It's for charity right, so why not make two quilts ;) And I haven't made a simple patchwork quilt in a bit, and am excited to see all these prints just pop in it!!!
And last but not least, I started working on a new quilt pattern that I hope to release in early Spring. I know right, I am still finishing up the typing of the other new pattern mentioned here (which will hopefully be ready next week!) but like I said in the beginning. It wouldn't be fun if I wasn't starting new while still trying to finish up old. And I just love the gorgeous prints in this Nova fabric line by Basic Grey. I mean, you had me at that Purple!!! I am super excited to see this design come together and am looking forward to sharing more as I get it done.
So yup, that is the new stuff I am working on. How about you??? What New Works in Progress are you starting up??? Or are you trying to finish up some Old Works in Progress???
