WIP Wednesday 11.18.15

It's getting close to Allietpie! time!  It's getting exciting!!!  I don't have all my fabrics ready yet.  But we're working on it.  Allietpie! is the 2015 Bonnie Hunter Mystery.  Just can't wait!

Here's my helper sorting the yellows:

  We also have the reds sorted...

I have a pile of fabrics that a friend's mother gave to me.  I need to figure out what to make with it.  I owe a special couple a wedding quilt and I told them I would make it for them before their 2nd wedding anniversary.  They got married 10/20/15.  Here's the fabrics.  Let me know your ideas!

The dark teal fabric on the bottom left will be the backing.  The rest is what I have to work with.    One of the patterns is called Organ Mountain Quilt??? which is in New Mexico.  Don't know how the fabric made it to Ohio... But I have it now.

No other new projects for this week.  I am working on finishing customer quilts one by one!

I got a new chicken this week.  I named her Phyllis because of her resemblance to Phyllis Diller.  She was the last surviving chicken in her flock.  Others were eaten by something.  She needed a home so that she could be with other chickens.  Well, here she is!

I finished quilting my 2015 BOM Vacation Time -- Mystery Quilt by Pat Sloan.

I made seven blocks for the City Sampler At Your Own Pace QA this month.  These are some of the cross blocks.  I like the one with the orange and the one with the little blue cross.

I am finishing up a customer's pineapple quilt.  Here it is on the frame.  I'm quilting it with Birdys.

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced today

I can't wait for the first instructions for Alitare! I love the colors this year.

Your sampler quilt is really nice and I like the prairie point on that quilt.

Funny that you named her Phyllis, hopefully she will keep you entertained, but perhaps not quite as much as Diller!
The teal & greens look pretty, I hope you find inspiration for the new quilt. Perhaps a bit of solid navy for more contrast, something that matches the color in that top piece?
