WIP Wednesday #37

Well, I don't have much to tell you about this week that you haven't already seen, but let's roll 'em out anyway, shall we?

Ongoing projects:

Skill Builder Sampler Quilt-Along - currently caught up
Here's my version of the Arizona block (you can find the tutorial here). I decided to reverse things up and do a print for the background, solids for the rest. At first I didn't love the results, but now I think it's kind of growing on me. Visit my Flickr photostream to see a mosaic of all five of the blocks I've done so far for this QA.
Summer Sampler Series
I made my scrappy, stringy six-pointed star block yesterday, and it was so much fun to put together. This is yet another block that is begging to be an entire quilt. This sampler is officially swamping my to-do list! Head over to Fresh Lemons Quilts for today's block tutorial. And check out this post for a sneak-peek at Faith's Loulouthi Cross quilt, made from the Greek Cross block we learned how to make earlier in the QA.
Modern Meadow - I actually made some progress stitching the binding on this. I'm thinking it'll be in the completed column very soon. For real! No, seriously this time!

Farmer's Wife Quilt-Along - currently caught up

  1. Beautiful hexies! I see what you mean about the scrappy six point star.It is so beautiful that it should be an entire quilt top. Nice work!

  2. Love the hexi quilt top. Can't wait to see it all finished. Also love the stringy six point star and would love to make a quilt of that block....quilt along?!

  3. Hi Lee! Your new blocks are amazing and I love your 'Hexies Around'!

  4. Thanks again Lee! Should I or not? Still thinking about joining SS QAL...if I do, some catching up to do... Everyone's work is looking beautiful.

  6. I love that Hexing Around top - it's so much fun, I adore the colors :) And your six-point star looks super fab too!!!!

  7. Hexing around top is just so gorgeous! The star is also just lovely. I'm hoping for a finish soon myself! We'll see.

  8. Love the hexagon quilt!!! ANd your blocks look awesome! My string star turned out wild, but I just realized part of the problem. Hmmm... I think I may have to spend some time with a seam ripper and see if I can get it to look better! lol!! Love you projects!

  9. WOw, your hexagon quilt is lovely, as is your string star block!

  10. Love your new blocks and the hexagon quilt is beautiful!

  11. All are awesome, but I think my favorite is the star. It looks very intricate to get the points done so well. The color choices are wonderful.

  12. I really like the "reversed" look on that Arizona block, I think the solids really pop! And I've been admiring your hexagon quilt on the Do. Good flickr posts. It's simply beautiful!

  13. I really love a lot of your blocks, but what I have to comment on today is your re-organization of your blog. I had fun looking through all your "As seen on. . ." and was impressed with your industriousness. Congrats!

  19. Hexing Around is now on my list of quilts to make. Gorgeous!

  20. Your things are always so pretty.
    I really wish I had more time to devote to my quilting. I sure have enough materials to keep me busy.

  21. Your stringy star looks amazing! I wish I had enough variety in my scraps to make a quilt of those. :)

  22. Hi Lee, Thanks for hosting! I'm digging your colour choices for the skill builder sampler - really fresh (aptly!)

  25. I love that Star block. This sounds like a great quilt along. So much to learn. I'm checking out those links! Thanks.

  26. I like that you switched the solid & print for that block, it gives it a whole new look. Do you think you'll do the same for some of the other blocks?

  27. Woo hoo over 100. Love your summer sampler blocks, and really like that you switched the print and solids.
    I'm interstate this week so no progress and no linking, but will be back next week.
