WiP Wednesday!!

Howdy! What a lovely week it's been...

The princess didn't make any more progress this week. Something about swimming lessons, dance class, play dates... you know! :)

But me... Oh, it's been a fun week!

SBS Quilt a long:

It was challenge week: design your own block and get the measurements right. I did a block I've decided to call Ninja Star.



It reminds me of those throwing stars. Picture the star part in silver and the background in anything else... do you see it? I really like it! :)

Summer Series Sampler Quilt a long!

Block one: the Virginia Star!


I went with bright orange and yellow. This quilt is bound to be bright! I love it!

The Queen Size for the Princess's teacher: Here after called "Queen Frolic" (Original, I know...)


I am LOVING how this is coming together!! I am pleased with the applique too! So fun! I still need to add the border, but this top is just about done! Yipee!!

Your queen top is spectacular. Are you creating the pattern as you go? The colors are beautiful - the fabrics perfect for the overall theme. Well done!

Love those large blocks in your quilt, especially middle tree!

ANudge said...

Wonderful top - delightful center block. I actually think it doesn't need a border - a bright binding should be all it needs.

thanks for sharing,

Very fun quilt for the Princess' teacher--I love the varied size of blocks. And yes--I see the ninja star--fun that you are getting all those points so beautifully made.

(And I still love those shoes!)
