We may have to call this "Princess addition" because she seems to have as much as I do! lol!!
Seriously - here are the Princess's projects:
Her first Ticker Tape block:
Turned out great! It was fun to watch her. She kept whispering "concentrate... concentrate!" as she sewed! It. Was. Awesome!!!!!
Today, my incredible friend and neighbor watched her and the little monkey for me while I got my haircut, and she came home with this:
And SHE made it with only a little help!! Awesome!!! Thank you Shelley! She is SO proud and I am tickled pink!!
Okay - now for mine...
I got the top finished, got the back pieced, and got it basted by bedtime last Wednesday. Then I decided on how to quilt it. I went with stitching 1/4 inch on either side of all the seams in the hexagons. Yep. That would be 4 laps around all 42 hexagons. As I was quilting (which I only just finished yesterday, mind you...) I kept thinking, "WHY?!?!" But then I would look at the quilting, especially on the back, and say, "Oh, yes! This looks great!!!"
I just got the binding attached today. I don't have a single picture of the completed quilt top. Give me a day or two, and it'll be all done and pictures will abound! :)
Kaleidoscope Quilt a long:
Cut, and ready to go for the next set! Yea! I love this already!! I have already decided to quilt with pink thread. ;)
Skill Builder Sampler Quilt a long:
Block #2: Value 9 patch
I am pretty bad with the whole "value" thing, so I really tried to work on that with this block. I learned something about value! IT'S AWESOME! I had to go through about 4 sets of fabric picks before it clicked. And I really love how this block turned out! The only problem? I am using scraps for this QAL, and most of my scraps are out of print, so there is zero chance for me to have a whole quilt with these fabrics. *sad face* Seriously. I would love it! ;)
Well, that is all for this wonderful WiP Wednesday! Linking up to Freshly Pieced! Be sure to check it out!
