WIP Wednesday

From last week's list:

Granny squares quilt - no progress from last week.

Giant star quilt - still no progress. Any suggestions on how to quilt this would be gratefully received.  I still think I want to do straight line quilting in the background, and something else in the star.  I think the quilting will really show up in the solid blue and pink parts though, so it needs to be just right.

Equilateral triangle quilt - I have pieced 4 rows of a total of 14.  This is still slow going, and I just need to keep chipping away at it.  The good news is, I am (slightly surprisingly) quite enjoying putting it together.

Dappled sunlight - here are posts on the trimming process, the trimmed half square triangles and layout options.  The quilt top is now complete and awaiting basting and quilting.  I am planning to quilt straight lines approximately a quarter inch off each diagonal seam - clean and simple.  I am thinking about trying to find a variegated thread with pink, yellow, green and orange in it, because I think it would look nice against the grey.  I also need to choose a backing and a binding fabric.

Linking up with Freshly Pieced:

Your Dappled Sunlight quilt is beautiful! I made one of the Giant Star quilts and did straight line quilting in the solid background (http://gemini-stitches.blogspot.com.au/2011/11/amy-butler-love-starflower.html).

I enjoyed visiting each of your WIPs, and especially liked your granny squares quilt.

Beautiful quilt! I love the warm colours with the grey sashing. I think a variegated thread for quilting would be gorgeous.

That Dappled Sunlight is gorgeous! And I think a variegated thread would be lovely with it.
