WIP Wednesday #23

I had a busy week, lots of progress and a few finishes even, go me!

Let's start with the finishes...

Postage Stamp Quilt Along with Rachel at P.S. I Quilt

It's done, it's done, it's finally done!

I almost didn't do this quilt along, then I saw Fresh Flowers by Deb Strain and thought that the rainbow effect would be lovely in this pattern

I had grand plans for the back, it took a little bit of time to carry them through. I knew what I wanted but couldn't decide on colors right away.

 (sorry about that crooked picture, the line I hang these on is crooked and I forgot to tilt the camera!)

Then this precious little bird...I saw it on the Birdie Stitches Block of the Month and pictured it with a rainbow colored belly. I had to incorporate it into a project somehow and was so happy to find the perfect one.

I quilted it with loopy loops, first time I've done that. I thought it gave it a nice whimsical feel.

Moose got to be the first to test drive it

I also finished up a couple of more bee blocks.

These are for Stephanie for the Christmas Bee. She requested Mod Mosaic so that's what she's getting!

In Progress

Supernova Quilt Along with Lee at Freshly Pieced-The top is put together and I have a plan for my backing. I need to pick up some more of the solid to carry it out. This is going on hold for about a week while I work on some deadlines.

It's a Hoot String Quilt-It's still sitting in the bag, this one is also put on temporary hold while I finish these deadlines

My sneak peek project-Also on temporary hold

Gift quilts-These are the deadline projects, I have to have them finished by Friday! All I have left to do is hand sew the binding down.

Bee Blocks for Erin-I started cutting and have a plan, just need the time.

Projects on hold

On the Road to Spring Quilt Along-It's ready to be quilted, I had to put this one aside for now while I finish up some other things.
