WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

From left to right: Les Fleurs Bleu, Parcheesie, Chicopee Log Cabin, Birds & Berries crib quilt. (Click image for larger view.)

My actual WIP is the Star Blossoms quilt, I’m almost finished cutting the thousand little pieces that go into it. Maybe I’ll even get to do a little sewing today between bathing the pugs!

I received my copy of Simply Fat Quarters yesterday and there’s a few patterns in there I’d love to make including Carousel, pictured on the cover and Poppy.

I also subscribed to the Fons & Porter magazine, “Love of Quilting” on my iPad so I don’t have to wait for the postal service to delivery my copy 3 weeks after everyone else has it.

 

Loving Triangles

About a year ago I bought a Fons & Porter 60 degree triangle ruler, today was the first time I used it and I am madly in love!

(Click image to enlarge.)

I fussy cut some fabrics then sewed 1 & 3/4″ strips around each side. The inside triangles finish at 4 & 1/2″ and the borders are 1 & 1/2″. I love the colour combinations of raspberry, yellow, orange, light blue, olive green and a dash of purple. My favorite combination is the raspberry bee print surrounding Melody Miller’s retro clock in olive.

My favorite!

Second favorite.

Can’t wait to make more and expand.
