Remember that beautiful stack of Poppie Cotton's new Prairie Sisters Fabric that I shared. (that was still in Fat Quarters). Well, here is a sneak peek at the finished blocks!!! Yup, that was quite a bit of stitching over the last few days, but I am super excited with these blocks, and can't wait to put them into the quilt and share it for the Prairie Sisters Fabric Blog Tour next Wednesday ;)
And I also shared two other stacks of Layer Cakes for the Moda Love sew-along . . . well, in the past few days the HST's were made, trimmed, and put into the quilt layout. I even managed to sew and press the rows together. Only 14 seams left and these two quilt tops will be done!! And I have to say, they look pretty awesome in all their big piecing glory ;) And on a side note, does anyone else use their banister to store pieced and pressed rows. It really is a great place to keep them from getting wrinkled. And yes, I am grateful for children and a spouse who understand there is fabric all over the house and it shouldn't be touched, tee hee hee.
And finally, I managed to finish up my Back to Basics quilt blocks that I shared back here. I am making this quilt for a Charity Auction at UQSM, where I will be teaching at the beginning of May. I am just loving the way the black makes these Jen Kingwell fabrics pop. I have only ever done 1 other quilt with a black background, and I loved it every bit as much as I am loving this. More Black Backgrounds in the future for sure!!!
I also pressed my Gretel Fabrics but haven't gotten to cutting them out yet. But it is next on the list to do ;) I am off to teach tomorrow at the Desert Gems Quilt Show and then am going up the Mountain on Friday, so there won't be much sewing on those days, but the weekend is fast approaching, and we don't have any plans. Sounds like a great time to be Happy Quilting!!!
So how about you . . . any progress on your works in progress you want to share?? Just leave me a comment on what your working on :)
