Wednesday, Wednesday - la la, la la la la

Modern Crosses Quilt - 37 blocks

Wednesday again! Time sure flies when you are busy. Here is my progress on the Modern Crosses Quilt, from Modern Log Cabin Quilting by Susan Beals. I am up to 37 blocks. I need somewhere around 60-75 for a proper twin size, I have to do some math - but I think I am over the half way point for sure.

There are almost too many blocks for a photo. I really enjoy working with these bright colours and fancy fabrics. I am using the same stack for the Farmer's Wife QAL. You can see that I added a few more greens and blues to the group of blocks to reduce the red dominance it had before.

A Kiss in Time - progress on the borders

Here is one of the two border pieces I am working on for my Kiss in Time quilt. These little squares finish at about 3/4". Below is a shot of the Kiss in Time top so far, which you have already seen.  I hope to finish the borders on the weekend and attach them. Then I can start quilting it.

I am also hoping to get a bunch of batting so I can baste and start quilting on the quilt for my bed. I have decided I will go for very simple backs on both of these, likely a nice sheet from IKEA will do the trick.

But it all has to wait, the sewing machine is in the shop. Cross your fingers that they will fix it before the weekend.

I am linking to WIP Wednesday, last week the work linked there was amazing. I hope you will try to visit those folks too.
