So first off, I am super excited that I finally got my "Vanessa Squared" blocks sewn into a quilt top!!! If your remember, I shared last month that I am using the Smart Cookie pattern from Vanessa Goertzen's new Jelly Filled book, combined with Vanessa Christensen's new Ombre Fabrics. I loved the quilt blocks but basically just needing enough time to figure out a color layout I liked. So this weekend I did that. And funny thing, once I had the layout figured, the blocks sewed up into a quilt top in an hour ;) And I can't wait to get this quilted and share the finish. My stop on Vanessa's Book Tour is Nov. 8th, so not to much longer to wait!!!
And I have also been working on a new Leader and Ender project while constructing all of the Starstruck Quilt Along tutorials and Charming Baby Quilts. Since I finished piecing all of my Scraptastic Star Blocks I needed a new Leader and Ender project and my Be Fruitful project I planned back in June was the perfect fit!!! I have now finished all of the block centers, and corners, and only have the 4 sets of side blocks and cornerstones left ;) I can't wait to see these blocks come together, it is going to be such a pretty quilt!!!
And finally, you know I can't help but start a new project when I have a little open time, right!!! I was thrilled when my good friends at Fat Quarter Shop asked if I would like to participate in their new Perfect 5 Quilts Quilt Along!!! Of course, with the announcement of my Charming Baby Quilts book it is no secret that I am a big fan of working with Charm Packs, so I was all in for playing with the new Perfect 5 Ruler (specifically designed for Charm Packs) and making a new project from the amazing pages of the Perfect 5 Quilts book. I plan to use 2 Wonder Charm Packs and a combination of 2 blocks to make a super soft and adorable baby quilt!! Can't wait to share more ;)
So that is what I am working on . . . So how about you??? What's on your cutting tables, sewing machines, and ironing boards today???
