Soda Pop QAL - Top done!!
You've probably seen this by now, but I'm pretty proud of it. My hope is to get the backing made and get the whole quilt finished off this weekend. I'm really excited to use it and wash it and see how the texture of the petals changes.
Back in April I was in charge of two bees and I chose the same block for both of them so I'd be close to an entire top. I chose the Parisian Star block from the book 99 Modern Blocks, I got back 20 blocks, and made an additional 10 to make it bigger.
Polaroid blocks to swap have been made and will be mailed today.
Scrap Vomit progress: If you ever get charm squares in a swap that you think are nasty, put them in a scrap vomit quilt and it will give them new purpose. The ultimate second chance. They will be transformed into awesomeness.
Extra late blocks for the Bliss circle of do. Good Stitches. They were MUCH easier than I expected. You can find the tutorial here.
See those fabrics that look kindof yellow looking?
They're actually green....and I can never get them to photograph true to color!
Next on the list:
I made a list last night of all the bee's I'm in, all the swaps I have going, all the QAL's I'm "participating" in (at my own speed) and all the extra/personal projects I've got on my list as either a need to do or started project.
baby boy quilt: I have a friend expecting a boy in the next 6 weeks and her baby shower is the end of this month. I'm making her a quilt for her new guy, but I think she reads this so I'll have to wait until after to show you :)
I'm Hexy and I Know It: my Hexy MF QAL needs some work. I haven't worked on it much this week and really need to get the rest of those flowers put together and start stitching the petals together.
This is what I have so far. I love them.
In life news, the Mr. goes back to school in a week and a half....too soon!
The olympics are over and I have to say, the closing cerimonies really satisfied my craving for good music. I LOVED all the 80's stuff, espeically The Pet Shop Boys performance of West End Girls. Their outfits and bikes and suits and jackets!!! So cool!
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced (on time!) this week!! Happy Wednesday everyone!
What are you working on these days??
