Works in Progress Wednesday - May 30, 2012

Whoa Wednesday, where did you come from? It's been such an exciting week! I took my eldest son camping with our Beaver Colony on the weekend -- we had fantastic weather, a great hike and fun crafts. So much fun! Then getting nominated for a Bloggers Quilt Festival category blew my mind (BTW, voting ends tomorrow night if you haven't had a chance to vote yet). Even though things are a wee bit nuts around here, it didn't stop me from starting a couple of new projects...

New Projects: 
Twelve Trees Quilt - Ever since I saw this quilt on Lily's Quilts, I knew I had to try it. I made my first online purchase (woo hoo by me, oh no by the hubster!) of the Twelve Trees pattern by Helen Howes and a fat eighth bundle of Westminster shot cottons from Pam @ Mad About Patchwork. Awesome service by the way. I've made the first block. Love!

Hudson's Bay Point Blanket Quilt - Finished the top and shared the measurements here. Unfortunately, I didn't buy enough of the off-white fabric for the party in the back so I'll need to wait until Fabricland has a sale again. Bummer.

Current Projects:
Colour My World Cyan - Working madly on this to finish for tomorrow...aack! The linky party for May's challenge will go up tomorrow for those participating. I can't wait to see what others have done with this funky colour. 

Modern Block Monday Sampler - This week was Night and Day by Kimberly Walus. Happy!

Completed Projects: Nada

Spiral/Spring seta colour
Wedding quilt
Nine patch colourwash

  8. Great version of the HB blanket! And the tree is just awesome!

  9. Those trees are awesome!
    I have to sew up my star block tomorrow morning as I had a sick little munchkin and didn't get around to it on the weekend as planned. Can't wait to see yours!

  12. I'm really drawn to those trees! I think I might (might!) be able to do that wavy FMQ. It's the swirls and swoops that still elude me.

  13. How will you quilt that Hudson's Bay blanket? I am planning one in my head for years now, and am trying to find symbols of Canada to use as quilting patterns.
