I guess the most important thing I'm working on is a quilt for our great-grandson who's going to be 3 next month. I had made him this pillowcase for Christmas (he LOVES the Cars movies) ~
and I decided he needed a little quilt to go with it! So I scrounged around for some more Cars fabrics and came up with a few more in different colors. I cut them all up in 5" squares and started adding sashing.
I was inspired by this pattern by Lindsay @ Craft Buds. My layout ended up looking something like this:
and I wanted to put his name on it somewhere, so I added it to the back ~
I added some Franken-batting (thanks to a tutorial by Kati @ from the blue chair) ~
and now I'm in the process of quilting it. Can't wait to see it finished!
I have to admit ~ I'm not doing so well on my 2014 2nd quarter Finish-a-long list. :( Although I have made a tiny bit of progress on the Good Night Irene and the Star Light Star Bright blocks. And my Hop Skip & Jump BOM quilt is almost ready for sashing.
In spite of the lack of progress on my list, I did sign up for another class at our LQS (just what I need, right?) and picked out these fabrics to make it sort of monochromatic.
So ~ I have LOTS of WIPs ~ all I need is a kick in the hiney to actually finish some things.
Linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
