WIP Wednesday #7

So I did a lot! of sewing this weekend!  I completed the top of Katy's pink D4P quilt.  Isn't it so pretty?!

I'm making 80 blocks total and plan to make two smaller baby girl quilts to donate to Stork Project while joining Swim, Bike, Quilt in the 100 Quilts for Kids project!

And I did the 1600 Jelly Roll Race and made a quilt top.. Well I actually used a 'bali pop' instead of a 'jelly roll'... 

Ok, I have to admit that I fretted the whole time...  First of all I have a complaint! and I don't complain about bali pops very often but this bali pop - Hoffman's "Cappuccino" had TWO very PLAIN very SOLID BLACK strips - no texture just plain black...  YUCK! They didn't add to the collection at all so... I started by taking those two strips out and added a couple of strips of fabric from my stash..  Then I thought - this fabric is too close to that - these two fabrics are going to get lost together...  well...  This is how it came out:

It was interesting and will make a nice throw but if you are going to do this I'd use a fabric pack in which the selection is more dramatically different from one and other... 

I received the next month directions in my SVQG - Mystery Quilt which means I now have month 2 & 3 to catch up

And the mail brought me month 4? of the Sunflower Glacier Star Quilt  So I have July, August, & September to go!!!

Guilt Guilt Guilt!!!  Gotta go sew!! Have a great week!

Inspired to get it GOING!!

That pink one is awesome! the more I see that D4P pattern the more I like it. I have a quick quilt I need for someone, maybe I'll try that. Was it pretty quick to put together?

Jean said...

my list grows daily...LOL!

Marie said...

Hey Lo! You amaze me constantly my friend!!

Eden the pattern does work up quick! and is fun to watch come together on the design wall. Might be a bit easier is I hadn't used as many fabric though. Your 'crumb along' blocks look great! I have to look more into that!

Jean - Do you EVER get to the bottom of your list?? I know I don't. I checked out the 4 Patches 4 Hope project from you blog - great idea!
