WIP Wednesday

Good morning everyone!

Hope your day is off to a good start. It's going to be a beautiful day here.

I've been working on my disappearing 9patch quilt. I haven't figured out a name for it yet.

Here's the 9 patches, all ready for a good press and then cutting them apart.

And here are the flying geese, in progress.

I use the method where you get 4 geese out of 1 larger square and 4 smaller squares. I'm almost done with these, then I'll press and trim.

Linking up with Lee and Lorna again today. Thanks Ladies.

A new project

Hello All,

I hope my American friends had a great Fourth of July weekend. The heat wave we've been having has finally cooled some, we might even see a shower or two in the next few days. That would be good.

So, I started a new quilt top. I know, I need another quilt top like I need a hole in my head. But, well... you know ;) My son is making me a nice sewing table, and I am hoping to be able to use it to help me baste my quilt tops, so that I can really and truly start quilting them easier.

I designed this quilt quite a few months ago. My dh helped me pick out colors :) Then I bought this fat quarter bundle from Riley Blake, it's called Cotton Shades. And the colors are close enough to what my dh and I came up with, that I decided to use them for this project.

I didn't use the whole bundle, there are 4 pieces left over. These are all the ones, plus the backgrounds pieces, I am using.

The darker gray is Quilters Rose by STOF. Oh, thats the wrong yellow. I switched it out for some Sweetwater swirly yellow fabric from the Sunkissed line. The gray check is from the same line. You can see the swirly yellow I am using in the next picture.

Here's the disappearing nine patch block I'll be using.

And some flying geese.

I'll be doing a lot of trimming... sigh~ but, trimming makes the blocks go together better, right?! So trimming I'll be doing... after the blocks are sewn.

Have a great day!

Linking up with Lee and Lorna today. Thanks Ladies!
