WIP Wednesday: Home Stretch

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Welcome to my second-to-last WIP Wednesday of summer vacation! Not that I'm counting the days or anything. Nope, not at all.

This week I made a test block for a quilt that's destined for my little niece's bed. My sister picked out the design by looking at my Pinterest boards, and after much discussion we settled on "Craving a Little Sunshine," a quilt by Deux Petites Souris that appeared in Modern Quilts Unlimited. Except we're doing it in green instead of yellow, with pops of cute, girly prints.

And here are the aforementioned girly prints. Specially selected to match Miss Mia's purple bedroom. : )

And I'm still making good progress on my retro Modern Yardage quilt. It's gonna be slammin'.

What are you working on this week? Here are the linky rules:
1. Link up any post from the past week that features at least one unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog. (Or grab the WIP Wednesday button for your sidebar.)
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!


  1. no school for my babes yet, but lately I've been thinking it might be nice!
    pretty stuff as always Lee!

  2. That "cravin' sunshine" quilt is going to be exuding sunshine in those bright and cheery colors! ;)

  3. Great fabric pull for that girly quilt! I have an aversion to purple, but I am doing my bestest to get over it! Retro Modern Yardage is looking fine!

  4. I love that green! Great girly prints and retro modern yardage is looking good!

  5. Wow to your photos - lovely lovely colour. That is going to be one fab quilt for your niece Mia!!!

  6. Love the blocks and the colour choice fabrics. Many thanks for hosting.

  7. Lovely blocks. At this stage I am counting the hours till they are all back at school next Thursday!!

  8. Here in Tucson, AZ our kids started school a couple weeks ago! Crazy that most people are still on summer break! But, it's too hot for school in June! We are still in 100° weather!

  9. Love those girlie prints! Can't wait to see more on this quilt.

  10. Your niece has great taste in patterns and fabrics! I hadn't seen modern yardage before. What a cool company. Can't wait to see more of your quilt. It looks fantastic already!

  11. Your projects look awesome!

  12. Great projects, love the retro progress

  13. What a lovely selection of "girly" prints. Love the idea of green as background.

  14. I love that green. What an excellent quilt choice - it's cute enough for a little girl, yet still cool enough for a big girl :) It will be loved for years to come.

  15. So glad to see that you are using my pattern! I LOVE your color choices! I can't wait to see it all done! Please keep me posted.


I love comments and read every one of them! : )
