WIP Wednesday

Ooh, nice projects! LOVE the houndstooth! I'm still kicking myself for missing the Sliced Coins QAL (in real time; I know I can go back and do it), so I'm 99% sure I'll be joining the Kaleidoscope quiltalong.

This is my first time here and I have to say I adore your zig-zag in your header. I too am thinking about joining I will need to read more about it.

Great stuff! I just love that houndstooth!! :)

Becky said...

OH, like the city weekends! I have a charm pack and petit fours of that line that I need to come up with a project for. The hounds tooth is fantastic too!

Elizabeth D. said...

I love the houndstooth! And your binding for your City Weekend quilt looks fantastic, too :) Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday!

Your houndstooth is AMAZING! Wow!
And I love the idea of Loulouthi for the Kaleidoscope Quilt Along!

You're gonna kill me for pointing this out...
but on your 8th square down on the far right side, it's facing the opposite direction. And i only notice because I was so enthralled with the quilt that I blew up the image to try and figure out the blocks! It's gorgeous! The one above it to the left is turned around too. Didn't know if it was intentional and I know I've gotten things basted and quilted before seeing flip-flopped blocks!

Susan said...

Your Houndstooth is so very cool and I'll be happy to do the binding for you on your City Weekends Charm Quilt. :) Just kidding - but I love doing binding. Oh Loulouthi...gotta get me some of that. :)

Your houndstooth quilt is really fantastic. The city weekend quilt looks really nice, great choice on the binding fabric.

Your houndstooth quilt is amazing! The black and white is so elegant, and really matches the design. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

Mary said...

city weekend is so classy, but I am not the biggest fan of binding, so...good luck! the houndstooth looks great too, so polished!

The city weekends quilt is so cute - gotta love a simple charm quilt! And your houndstooth is super impressive and really just stunning - wow!

Debbie said...

traceyjay said...

I love the houndstooth quilt! That is so awesome! Are you a Bama fan? It is so perfect for people who love the Tide; I love it even though I am on the opposing side.:) The city weekend quilt is going to be so neat too!
