WIP Wednesday #30

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I have been saving and stashing half jelly rolls and fat quarters in a cute combo from JoAnn Fabrics every time I don't know what to do with my 40% off coupon for the week.  Today I started the Victoriana Quilt Designs Fabric Party.  http://www.victorianaquiltdesigns.com/VictorianaQuilters/BlockoftheMonth/VQDFabricParty.htm
It calls for tone fabrics, but you know me... I'm not going the route the instructions go.  Here's the  Fabric Central Seaglass colors:


Two more blocks were finished for the Mystery Quilt with Bluepatch Quilter


I love the way the top finsihed on my Oh Susannah Mystery Quilt with http://erikhomemade.typepad.com/erik_homemade/.   It is made from my husbands work clothes and jeans (and of course some colors from my stash).  It has a very masculine touch to it.


I expect to let my quilt tops build up over the summer.  It's just too much to move everything to the kitchen table for just an hour of machine quilting here and there.  I will get back to quilting them 3-4 hours at a time when school starts up again in the fall.

Pineapple blocks continue to arrive in the mail.  It was an awsome month to win the Block Lotto.  Here's a pic of all of the ones that have arrived playing nicely together...just waiting on more friends to arrive mostly from across the pond.

  5. Wow, everything is so nice! I have been loving your Mystery Quilt blocks but did not realize they included work clothes, maybe that is why they are so nice! And the pineapple quilt is great!
