WIP Wednesday 9.26.12

I needed a little break from another quilt I'm currently working on, so I started sewing these blocks together as a little distraction.

I sewed the center section together and decided it needed a few more blocks.  Hoping to finish this project soon.  It's funny to me that I made most of these blocks about a year ago and let them sit in a box since then.  After doing them, I fell out of love with them.  Now that they are all sewn together with a few more soon to be added, I love this quilt so much.  All the blocks are made from Art Gallery Pure Elements.

These blocks are all foundation pieced.  Then I square them up with my flying geese ruler.


I'm getting really excited to finish this one up.

I also finished up this bee block for AnneMarie from GenX Quilters. She asked for improv hexagon blocks.

Finally, I finished up one last little project the other day that isn't my normal style.  Our cute babysitter turned 16 on Monday.  For her birthday her parents redid her room.  I made her a throw pillow to match her new room and bedding.
