WIP Wednesday 7/2


Untitled

I did some more work on my Jamestown Landing quilt (from String Fling: Scrappy, Happy and Loving It!).  I finally have all my HST's sewn into broken dish blocks.  There are 210 there.  Phew.  I have 67 string blocks there and I need 156.  That's going to be my next goal.  We are moving into a new place in the next couple months and I really want this ready for our new bedroom.  I feel like I am over the hump.  I really love how this is coming out.  It has a combination of scraps and specially bought fabrics in it.  I didn't have enough blue and creams so I had to get some more.  I threw in a jelly roll of Indigo Crossing by Moda.  Every strip is represented somewhere.  I LOVED that jelly roll.  It matched perfectly.  I also bought a fat quarter of every neutral and blue I could find on Connecting threads.  Don't you just love that store?  Then mix all that in with my scraps and I think I ended up with a great mix.

I promised myself I wouldn't start any new projects this month but here it is, July 3rd, and I have one in the works.  But for a good reason!  My Aunt and Uncle are becoming foster parents to a beautiful little 10 month old girl.  She is painting a room for her in the colors of pink and brown.  So obviously I had to do something for her.  :)  These are the fabrics I pulled.  I am torn between doing something easy and quick and something more intricate.  I have never been one for the quick and easy quilts.

This is a sneak peek of a finish I am going to show you on Friday!  This is the very first time I have ever quilted something with just straight lines!

This week I am linking up to Freshly Pieced and Esther's blog.
