Work in Progress Wednesday

I have had a very productive week.

In Progress:

Tradewinds Quilt:

Top is done! Take a look, I love that someone dared me to use something other than white.  I love it.     It will go onto the back burner for awhile.  I need to decide on a backing and binding and figure out how much I need.  Any advice?  Anyone of the prints in the quilt is probably available!

Family Tree Quilt:

The top is I think done.  I am satisfied and I am ready to get quilting.  I got my backing in the mail this morning so I just need to get moving!

Granny Squares:

I am working on cutting into more fabrics so I can add to my scrap pile!  I have many more blocks to get too!

Planning Stages:

Christmas Quilt: Fabric is in for the blocks, so I can get started soon!

Dad's Table Toppers: My mom gave me the fabric and I have the measurements.  I need to put it all on graph paper and figure out all the cuts.

Kitchen Accessories:  I am going to use Vintage Modern to make some kitchen accessories to revamp my kitchen.  I didn't realize it, but I am drawn to Vintage Modern and my house has the same color scheme.  I have grey walls in the dinning/living area, light blue wall and tile in the kitchen, and some splashes of red.  My kitchen is mostly modern, so the Vintage Modern will be a perfect compliment.   So the list is (and may grow) table runner, placemats, napkins, stand mixer cover, and hot pads.

Good Fortune:  I have some great fat quarters, scraps, and a charm pack.  I have an idea or two for  a pattern.  I need to figure it all out and start working.


  1. I just love your tradewinds quilt. Did you use a pattern?

  2. I love the name of your blog! :-)

    Both quilts are beautiful. For Tradewinds, I would probably go with a binding from one of the darker pink fabrics, but I'm sure anything you pick will be beautiful. There are so many great fabrics to choose from in that quilt!

  3. I love your Tradewinds quilt. The stained glass look with the blue sashing is awesome. The whole color scheme just works. Having the star blocks in there just pushes it over the top. I love it. I would totally just bind it in the blue color that matches the sashing. It is perfect! I'd love to know if it's out of your brain or if you used a pattern like Jeri asked :-)

    The family tree quilt is so special, too! I love it :-)

  4. I LOVE your Tradewinds quilt!!! It is just beautiful! I also like the family tree quilt :)
