WIP Wednesday 7.16.14

Another productive week for a summer month!  Here's what happened.

Just so you know, it pays to link up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.  Here's a big shout out to the sponsors -- especially Canton Village Quilt Works!  The Black and White and Bright fat quarter bundle! is due to land in my mailbox today!!!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced     

I finished this crib quilt for my niece.  She's a big Ohio State fan.  They do not know the gender of the baby.  I think this is perfect.  Thanks to my Accuquilt GO! Baby and the 3" Finished Square and HST, this quilt was done in no time.

I finished the quilting on my Born on the 4th quilt.  It just needs trimmed and bound.  Swirls to the rescue again.  (Circle Lord Swirls is my go-to quilting pattern.)

I completed my modern version of the starflower block in the Classis Meets Modern QA.

I've also been busy working in my little garden.

Tiana my first brood hen has been sitting on 8 eggs since 7/7.  I'm going to try to candle the eggs tonight to see if there is any activity.

There's a QA that has caught my attention (of course).  You can get the PATTERN HERE.  There is  a Facebook group HERE.  And the full schedule for the QAL is HERE.  Gotta LOVE that Facebook now plays into quilt alongs.

I finished the quilt top for the Market Day Sew Along at Heartspun Quilts .

That is a busy list! I think the QA looks really lovely too.

You did all that in a week, that's amazing! I really love the red and white quilt for your niece, what a lucky girl! And good luck with the candle-ing! I have a broody hen, who keeps pinching eggs to sit on (12 at the last count) - shame we don't have a cockerel, haha!

Gorgeous quilt! You are a busy lady! Would love to see more of your garden. It's winter where I am so it's all dormant.
