WiP Wednesday: The one with lots of color

I'm so happy to finally share a sneak peek one of my recent finishes with you, my Springtime Hues quilt, which will be in the 9th issue of Fat Quarterly, the Kids & Teens issue.  If you don't already subscribe, this is going to be a great issue to pick up, because it is chock full of new patterns, including one from me!  A little birdie told me that this issue should be out very, very soon!

Springtime Hues quilt - in issue 9 of Fat Quarterly

In other news, I managed to conquer the vacation laundry and get behind use my machine on some projects I can actually share for a change!  Here's what I've got going...

NY Beauty Mini - Almost done!  I finished piecing the tiny (read: evil) HST border and then added one more border for good measure.  I think I'm done with the top at this point, just need to work on the backing and figure out how I'm going to quilt it.  I think I'm going to be going with some straight lines, in some kind of echo formation.


My Precious QAL Pillow - I've got three more blocks done, now just three more to go.  I'm really loving how these blocks are coming together, and I want to pair them with a fun pindot border for the finished pillow, just need to hunt in the stash for the right one.


Patchwork Wheel scrap quilt - Still going, just at a snail's pace ;)  I got as far as making some HSTs this week, though I haven't pressed or trimmed them just yet.


My next quilt pattern - In the works!  Pressing and cutting is moving right along!  Thanks for the outpouring of folks willing to test the pattern, I really appreciate it.  You should be receiving an email from me shortly if you have not already heard from me.

Wonderful Bella goodness

May Stash Trad block for Felicity - Felicity picked a churn dash block for her turn this month in our Stash Trad bee, playing with values a bit and using bright colors.  This is going to be a fun one to work on!

Oh, and I almost forgot - my Star Crossed Stitch quilt is featured over on QuiltStory today!

What are you stitching up this week?  Write it up and share it over at Lee's WiP Wednesday linky!
