WIP Wednesday

From last week's list:

Granny squares quilt - no progress from last week, except that I cut the binding fabric (I will spend some time making binding for several quilts on the go this week).

Giant star quilt - still no progress.  I have decided what fabric I am going to use to back it though, and I have the batting, so theoretically, I could baste it.  Hmmm, let's see if I get there by next week.  Might have to buy some more basting pins.

Equilateral triangle quilt - I spent lots of time on this quilt over the long weekend, and now the top is finished!  I haven't had a chance to take photos yet of the entire thing yet, and to be honest, I will need some assistance, because this quilt is GINORMOUS.  Good thing it is for my gigantor brother.  This is a photo of a five row section (more photos here):

Dappled sunlight - here are posts on the trimming process, the trimmed half square triangleslayout options and the complete quilt top.  I have now finished quilting the top with a rather lovely variegated thread - which shows best in this photo (more photos here):


I have started a gingham quilt inspired by this one.  I am using solid fabrics from Spotlight and plan to write up a review when the quilt is finished (hopefully quite soon).

Linking up with Freshly Pieced:

I love triangle quilts! I look forward to seeing yours in all its glory! You are very busy! Are you taking part in the Blogger's Quilt Festival this weekend?

The variegated thread looks really nice, I will have to try that. Your ginormous triangle quilt looks great too.
