Work In Progress Wed #35


Tanya and I have slacked in our WIP Wednesday posts the last month.  We are going good this week though.  Tanya completed her 2nd top this week a plus quilt out of the last (almost as Tanya says, she thinks she still has a doll quilt left of it) of the Twirl Fat Quarter Bundle she had.


Tanya is stealing all her Plus quilt Ideas from me.  I have been planning a plus quilt, but not quite the whole thing plused.  Above is the first 5 rows sewn together and then the next 4 almost sewn together.  This quilt is small more of a baby or wall hanging size.  These squares are 2 1/2 inch whereas Tanya did 4 inch blocks.



I got some of my orange blocks done for my orange and gray quilt I talked about earlier.


I have somewhere near 14 blocks of each orange and gray now.  My plan is a twin size quilt so I have a lot of blocks to go.  This project may take some time.  Plus I still do not have near enough grays for my random taste, I need to go shopping again for them.  Especially if I plan to do a purple and gray quilt too. (Oh my wife says pink and gray? hum 2 quilts more?)


Tanya was not settled with just having 2 tops done this week.  (she did finish the cowboy baby quilt she should be able to take pictures and post it Thursday) so she made another top this one is a Rainbow quilt. 


So Tanya and I have been busy this week.  I have a ton of UFO's sitting around that need finishing and 2 contest quilts I need to get started on so this will be a busy month for me.

I love looking at your orange quilts. They remind me of spring, and that's important for us in Norway. We have a pretty dark time here now, and are longing for more sun.
