wip


I've got a new work in progress.
I am pretty excited about it since it is improvisationally pieced and uses only scraps, my two favorite things when it comes to quilting.

I'll be back on Tuesday with week 5 of the star quilt along.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

I can't tell how big this gorgeous quilt is--is it full-sized?

I made a mini one like this last summer. It is fun to play with tiny scraps.

susan said...

i loooove that. it is just the kind of thing i have been wanting to try myself! i did give a similar look a go a few months ago, but it was a disaster and i hated it so much i abandoned it. but you did it! please do keep us posted on this project - and i would be eternally grateful for any tips you can pass along. yay you! another winner!

Amy said...

I just love how the white frames the bright colors and makes each one pop. You have a wonderful eye for composition.

Jessica said...

This is really cute. I have really developed an appreciation of what you do with white fabric. I have always been scared of white before, but the way you use it, it always makes your quilts come out so crisp looking. I took the plunge and tried it on my latest project and i like it so far, thank you!
