FINISH! and a Wednesday WIP.

I couldn't be happier with this little baby, unless of course it was staying here with us. Once I got past my quilting block, I rolled and it's exactly how I envisioned it in my head. Isn't it nice when things work out that way?? Sadly - or hopefully happily for a friend - this is going off to live with a new baby girl. I could definitely see whipping up another of these.  In fact, I think I could probably take orders. . .

Stats -
*Background is Kona cotton in Aloe (Love! Could buy by the bolt!)
*The rest are Kona solids and prints from my stash
*52" square
*Based on a 12" block found here

I've also been busy working on this duffel bag for my upcoming trip to NYC. I've moved past most of the frightening (to me) instructions and now I'm just finishing up the side pieces. I'll post more pics and info when it's all done, hopefully this weekend. But I'm scooting in just under the wire to post for WIP Wednesday.

  1. I love that quilt! It's so neat with the way you set it up, fun and round instead of all stuffy and in a pattern. Which is all I do lol! Great work though.

  3. The quilting shows up so good in your photo of the wonky stars and looks really good. I can't wait to see the finished duffle bag.

  6. I've been gone on a trip, so am just getting around to my favorite WIP-ers to post, even if your post is from last week.

    I LOVE that quilting! I had to click on it to enlarge so I could all your amazing handiwork. I agree-I'd make another just for myself, now that you have the idea and designs all figured out. Beatiful, just beautiful.

    And I've got a bag all sketched out waiting to be made because. . . I'm going to New York, too! We're going the third week in November. Since your blog is quiet this week, I'm wondering if you are already there. If so, post some shots about what you did, so I can add them to my list of Things To Do.

    BTW, your aqua colors on your blog are beautiful. . .and coordinate with your quilt!
