Work in Progress Wednesday

I have blocks from yet another signature block swap sitting here just waiting for inspiration. I put them up on the design wall as is and I think I like it!

Sometimes simple is best. I am going to try out a few ideas on EQ but I may well come back to this. I even had a perfect border fabric already out.

I pulled this as a possible binding fabric for the last signature quilt I made.

I have two other fabric tacks at the idea stage.

I bought this stack of Kaffe fabrics a while back on sale and think it looks very springlike! I want to find a solid to go with them but I think I want something other than white.

I also have this stack of patriotic FQs from Connecting Threads.

No doubt this will become another QOV, I just need to decide on a pattern.

I have this stack that I bought at Hancock’s last summer but I think I need a few more shirting fabrics to go with what is here.


Hop over to Lee’s blog, Freshly Pieced, to see what others have in progress today.

    An idea for the solids for the Kaffe prints: try pairing them with his shot cottons. They are great because they have two colors in each fabric so you get “solid” but also a subtle “shimmer” from the color variations within them. Doing so is admittedly a splurge though.

    I also got a bulging stash of fabrics collected to make QOVs. Now I really hope I actually (finally?) get to make one this year!

  2. I love those signature blocks … and the border fabric you’ve chosen, too!! I agree … sometimes simple is best.

    I bought some of that red (that you got at Hancock’s) when I was at Hancock’s of Paducah last year. I’m using it in my Texas Star quilt … it’s in the basting stage (EPP), so it’s being neglected. We will be taking a road trip to Hannibal, MO in a couple of weeks, so it will get some attention then.
