WIP Wednesday #7

Well I actually have some thing to show you today.  I spent the weekend hanging out with my mom and we finished sewing together a quilt top for my nephew.  I started out using Julie's Fast Forward pattern and some Max and Wiskers fabric.  We decided to go with the orange grunge fabric where Julie used the black because I didn't want the quilt to be too dark and wanted it have a youthful feel.  Once the rows were sewn together I realized that if we didn't add the additional sashing the orange made these stars of sort and I really liked it.  So we did away with the sashing strips taking this lap size quilt down in size a little but since JR is only 5 months I don't think he will mind and I am confident it will still work on a toddler bed when the time comes.

I'm still working on hand sewing the binding down on my Freshcuts Square Dance quilt but stay tuned because I am sure to have that finished soon.  And I'm still plugging away on my Farmer's Wife Quilt Along blocks.  So it's a pretty short report from me today but head on over to Lee's to see what everyone else is working on.


  1. What a great quilt for a boy! Love the fabric and the pattern.

  2. I love the orange! Great choice!

  3. Hey, progress is progress! I like your quilt. That orange pops with the other colors!

  4. Removing the sashing really brings out the stars. Love the way the orange makes them stand out.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
