WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Sew Fresh Quilts

Hello! I have recently become blog friends with Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts and am very excited to be testing out a brand new pattern for her! It is a mini quilt called ilove2QUILT. It is absolutely adorable and I have the perfect spot to hang it in my sewing room when I get it done - right over my ironing station. The pattern is done with solid colors in an ombre pattern but Lorna said we can use our stash so mine has more of a scrappy rainbow look. I am using (2) 6pc fat quarter collections from JoAnn's that I received for Christmas and a few more fabrics that complement those. I'm really excited to get this together and see the final top. And I'm happy to be helping out a new friend!



I also have the fabric pulled for my Newbee Hive #8 June block over at Threadbias. Morgan has asked us to do any star block we want in a purple and gray color scheme. I'm really excited about this because I love star blocks! She gave us a list of examples and I chose the You Are Here block by Monica at Happy Zombie. I can't wait to get started and to see all the blocks Morgan gets!


Also, the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop begins today so stop by my friends' blogs!
