Friday round-up #2

Les Fleurs Bleu

For TGIFF I present my Vintage Modern Marmalade Chevron quilt, formerly known as In Reverse. After free motion quilting the entire quilt, it really gave me the courage and confidence to work on larger projects.

My second semi finish is Les Fleurs Bleu” quilt top. I used a Spa by Deb Strain and Kona white, I’m waiting for Spa yardage to hit the shops so I can create the back.

Ongoing are my loving¬†triangles, which may eventually become a full size quilt,¬†scraptastic madness and fabric manipulation. My biggest problem with notched tucks is that I don’t want them to look like Navajo designs, that’s just not my thing and something I know nothing about.

Today I’m going to work on zippy pouches, after that, who knows!

I’m linking up with Mama Love Quilts who is hosting TGIFF this week.

WIP Wednesday: Hand Picked Zipper

Bending Pins: Hand Picked Zipper

There are just 3 more full working days before I leave for Germany on vacation so my WIPs are few. I just started a zippy pouch to bring along with me and because I didn’t want to spend the evening in the basement alone, I thought I’d hand pick the zipper with glass beads. Tomorrow is the last evening I have to lounge, Thursday we’re taking the pugs to the sitter {ack, worry!!} who lives an hour away but the most trusted person we know who can take care of an incontinent, aging pug who’s back legs give out on him from time to time.

My other WIP is the Back Yard Baby quilt I started — it seems just a month ago (??) but I just found out she’s 8 & 1/2 months pregnant — where did the time go? I have a lot of quilting to do when I return!

My Mom reads my blog so I just wanted to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day in advance, I love you Mom!
