Usually, when I show you my works in progress, I post the list from last week so I can tell you about what I’ve been working on this week. I’m not going to bother. This week, I worked on one quilt only. It’s my Double Staircase baby quilt for the guest post I’m doing Monday for Building Blocks with Friends on A Girl in Paradise.
Anyway, I am so, so excited about the tutorial I’m doing and the quilt that will be finished to go along with it! The top is all put together, I pieced the back (I think I like it as much as the front!), it’s basted (note to self: must stop basting with straight pins. Somebody save me!!) and I am right now in the process of quilting it. See, it’s still in my machine when I took these photos!
The other project I worked on was also for something I’m doing with another blogger (many others, actually!). Beth at Plum and June is hosting a Let’s Get Acquainted Blog Hop this summer that started this week!
The hop started this week and features new bloggers who started their blogs in 2011 or 2012. My date on the hop is June 7th, but this week you can check out Kelsey and Erin, who each posted project yesterday, as well as Nik and Alyssa, who will be featured tomorrow.
Beth suggested we use novelty prints in our projects for the hops, so I pulled some fabrics with birds and owls.
I’ve got some charm squares cut for my project and tutorial. It should be fun.
