Work In Progress


Hey Guys!

Well…my husband is home today, he is under the weather but while he resting he is constantly saying…You working on my quilt for my friend?  Oh it soooo pretty!  He is really cracking me up!  Any other time he be complaining about my other Sewing MANchine Fabio (because my SM is temperamental with the stitching) Any who I have finished all my cutting and now piecing together the blocks.  The blocks are from a tutorial which I will talk about more on Thursday.  Here is a picture for you..I may post again tonight on my progress.


I got this fabric from Fat Quarter Shop the collection is call Les Amis by Patty Sloniger for Michael Miller Fabrics.  I get 10 fat quarters every month from their monthly program.  I added a two solids to each of the two color groups.

Two Groups

Here are both groups of the fabric.  I added the solid strip and the white dot fabric.  I think the turtles are super cute! 

I have finished three blocks and stitched them together.

So far, I have finished three blocks and stitched them together.


Here is a picture of all the cut strips sorted…sorting done by the Happy Husband!  He has a “toss method.”  He literally tossed the strips in the air and then stacked them up.  I really think he was entertaining himself. ;0)  

I will be linking up to Freshly Pieced today for WIP.  If you are visiting from there please let me know, I love to hear to your comments!

Until next time, Sew Pretty!

  1. Great blocks! Visiting from WIP Wednesday.

  2. Wonderful spring pallete! It looks like it will be a fun quilt, I love those little turtles too!

  3. I love the TOSS method….sometimes I tend to over-analyze!!! It makes me think about a batch of strips that I have in a ziplock; just waiting for a project…can’t wait to see your layout!
