Progress in yellows and greys

I know it's been kind of quiet on this blog lately, but I've been working on a couple of projects for my 2nd Quarter Finish-Along

First up is the Puddle Jumping quilt for my youngest daughter.  I've finished 9 more blocks since the beginning of April which means all 16 blocks are done.  I really love this pattern with the Modern Folkloric fabrics!  The blocks measure 15-1/2" and my design wall wasn't big enough to hold all of them, so what I ended up doing is taking pics of all the blocks and then printing them on paper and cutting them all out.  That made it SO much easier to move them around and decide on a layout!

I'm so excited to get this quilt finished ~ I'm having a hard time deciding how to quilt it, but I'm sure it will come to me eventually.  :)  

I've been waiting for a 20-1/2" square ruler so I can square up these big blocks, so I started working on the next project ~ the Garden Fence quilt made up of blocks from my bee mates in the Newbie Quilters Bee (Hive #8).  I finished up 3 blocks of my own for a total of 16 blocks.  

As of right now, I've sewn all the rows together, so I just need to finish the sashing to have the top completed.  It's interesting how both these quilts ended up in yellows and greys.  I know I'll be ready for a little more color once these are finished!

Linking up with Alyce for Sew Cute Tuesday and Lee for WIP Wednesday!


  1. I love both of these projects. Colours and designs both wonderful.

  2. I like the yellow and grey. I have a Block of the Month quilt from a local quilt shop that is from 2013 that is yellow and grey. Now if I can only get to it. I have about 17 UFOs!

  3. They're both going to be very nice quilts. I've never worked with yellow and grey myself, but I'm seeing more and more of it lately. A local shop has just started stocking a whole new range of about 10 fabrics that are all yellow and grey. I must say that it's growing on me. Thank you for linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday.
