Wednesday....WIPs

I cannot believe a whole week has gone by.  This has been an extremely busy week, and you are probably wondering why the wedding cake background.  My little brother is getting married soon...and with bridal showers, rehearsals, and dresses to find, I thought I would get in the wedding spirit!


This is truly a "work in progress."  I cut the pieces for my This and That "Cobblestone Lane" block of the month.  Now I need to go and get these blocks sewn together.  Only one month left and I can start finishing the quilt.


Of course I'm still working on my Vignette hexagons.  I have been basting and basting and basting hexies as my son has a three-hour a day basketball camp next week, and I will have a lot of time to stitch.  :)


I also found another quilt-a-long (I know, I know), but this one is fun, and there is a mini quilt to make AND I'm using my stash.  These are my "warm colors."  I need to still pick out a few more warms and then work on my "cool colors."  I have a bit of problem with the cool colors as I don't tend to use a lot of blues or greens...  Should be interesting.  If you would like to join us you can go to http://incolororder.blogspot.com/ to get the instructions.  I'm a bit behind, but they are just starting the cutting now.  I thought it would be fun to really challenge myself with the use of color. 


And last, but certainly not least, I finally finished this quilt.  Everytime I look at it all I think of is summer.  It has been so hot here this week (over 100 degrees) and this reminds me of a cool summer pool and green grass.  I just love the Dilly Dally fabrics and the pattern can be found here... http://www.modabakeshop.com/2010/09/candy-bar-pinwheels.html.

I'm linking with http://freshlypieced.blogspot.com/ for WIP Wednesday.  Thank you so much for stopping by, you made my day!  Happy Stitching!  --Kristen
