WIP Wednesday

This week I've been working on this quilt using Tula Pink's Acacia collection.  It's going to be raffled off as part of my local quilt guild's exhibition later this year.  The star blocks were pretty speedy to make and choosing all the fabric combinations was a lot of fun!

Acacia Stars Quilt Top

This quilt top is finished so it's now out for long-arm quilting.  I'm glad I don't have to quilt this 88" by 76" monster myself!

By the way, if you need to match a print on a border, this tutorial is what I used, and I think it's fantastic.

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced:

That´s such a cool quilt. I never gave a quilt away to Long arm... Not that much lonarm quilters in Germany. I think, and I am sure this is very expensive, isn´t it? I would love to try this once, how a top of mine would look with a professional quilting :)

Great colours. I like the racoon border.

It's great! Good luck with the raffle, although I agree with the others, it will be hard to part with!

Beautiful! I love the business of the borders with the rest of the quilt! I bet this is going to be a show stopper once it is finished.

Thanks for providing a link to my tutorial. It's fun to know that it is helping people quilt around the world. You have a great blog and some really nice projects. The color challenge sounds interesting... I'm thinking about it.

This is ah-maz-ing! I'm usually not really drawn to Tula fabrics for some reason but you make me want to get some!
