Work In Progress Wed #38

You know it has come to my attention that I have been slacking on my Work In Progress Wed.  In fact it took so much time trying to find the last post number that I am sitting here trying to remember what I was going to talk about so lets um sit here and dig and see if there is something worth talking about.

Oh yes this will work.  I at the start of this year planed to make a Orange and Gray quilt for my bed (because sadly I still have not made my self a quilt yet) any way I wanted to make a quilt for me.  But then again as normal around my house Tanya vetoed the quilt.  So plans changed.

Tanya hates Orange and Gray but he decided my idea of a scrappy quilt was not that terrible.  So now I am making a brown and turquoise (with a splash of tan). Quilt for my bed.  If any one remembers I made a Richard's Star (yes I know some what conceded naming it after myself but hey I am new at this)  block and giant quilt block.  Heck lets just show you.

Any way Tanya and I plan to do brown and turquoise checker board out of the large 10 x 10 blocks. and then instead of the yellow star in the center it will be out of tans.  Any way that is the plan I think I have 8 or so of the big turquoise blocks, but I am still working on getting enough brown and tan.

Lets see what else is going on.

Oh yes this is a good one and it follows along with my bock (again I could not resist calling it after me) In 2 weeks from now (well week and half) HMQS is going to be held here in SLC, UT.  I have 2 quilts that will be in the show.  My helix quilt will be on display with other quilts from the SLMQG and I have a quilt in one of the contests.  The above is all that I will show for now and will talk more about the quilt after HMQS starts (mostly because I never took a picture of it before I mailed it off) lol. Remind me to take a picture next time before mailing it away.

The last thing I will share is something that Tanya has been off and on working on.  It is a sorta art quilt with a butterfly on it.  She was sewing the butterfly down the other night.  I cant wait to see it when its done.

Any way thanks for stopping bye on this WIP Wednesday.

I like the giant quilt block :) If all quilt blocks were that big, I could make a ton more quilts!

Brown and turquoise will be very pretty together! Love Tanya's butterfly, too.
