Ada's Plus Quilt (just posted today)
Onto the quilt.
There are 220 charms in this top, no repeats. I did this in one day. The large square in the middle (100 charms) is one piece, and each triangle is a piece. I'm thinking of using Kona Med gray for the background pieces. I used 4 inch charms. My collection of I Spys included 4 and 5 inch charms. Lucky for me because I used the 5 inch charms to make the HSTs required for the color division. The kids already love the quilt. It is destined for Willa, the curly headed kid at the top of the picture. You'll notice a lack of orange. I have several hundred I Spy charms, but not enough for orange to have its place in this quilt. If I ever run an I-Spy swap, I'll suggest people look for orange fabric.
Works still in progress.
Spiderweb quilt- this one is over a year old now. I did work on it this week in that I sorted through my fabric and sorted out some strips to be used in the quilt. This was a bee quilt. I also inspected the blocks and had to take out a couple that just aren't big enough to be used. I've also decided not to make this a queen quilt. I'm going to make a few more blocks and call it done.
Houndstooth tubes- I don't think I've ever shared this one on the blog, but it is a WIP for my husband. It's pretty cool, so I'll have to get back on that one one day soon.
Love you to the Moon- a word quilt.
Shot cottons wonky log cabin quilt- another neglected WIP. All the blocks are made. It needs to be sashed and quilted.
Rainbow Diamond- I need to get on this one or I'll be paying shipping to Japan as my friends are moving duty stations. Note to self- find out when
Scrappy Bentos- This was a swap block. I love how it is coming together. I might keep this quilt for myself!
4x5 bee blocks- Another bee quilt. It's going to be a birthday present for my little brother. I need to sash the blocks and think about what I'll use as the backing, and how to quilt.
Willa's Birthday Quilt- will need to be bound when it returns.
