WIP Wednesday

Just a quick WIP Wednesday update this week.  I just finished up this fun block for Sally - I think all the blocks together are going to make an amazing quilt!

Corners Block for Simply Solids Bee

After some solid sewing last weekend, my Oakshott and low volume plus quilt top is finished!  This is a photo of all the blocks laid out on my design wall before I assembled the quilt top.  I'm hoping to get proper photos tomorrow, weather permitting.

Oakshott and low volume quilt progress

I also whipped up this little (approx 27" square) baby quilt top from scraps.  The picture is really not doing it justice - the colours are much softer in real life.  It's on my design wall at the moment, but I think it needs something... in fact, I think it needs appliqué!  Hmmm - good thing I seem to be in the mood to try new things at the moment.

What have you been working on this week?

I really like that plus sign quilt...not sure what it's called. Did you happen to make that from a tutorial online? or was it a bought pattern?

The first block is so interesting. Every time I see it on flickr I can't stop looking at it.

I really like the colours in your first block, that is going to look stunning as a large quilt.

Lovely projects. The first block will be a fantastic quilt. I suddenly realised I have never made a quilt in solids. I feel inspired ;)
