WIP Wednesday

I know I say this every week, but this week flew by. For real. Here's what I've been working on.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Finished:
Nada.

Ongoing projects:
My Lucky Stars quilt
My Lucky Stars quilt top
Quilt top finished! I used Kona Ash as a sashing for these blocks from my VIBees friends.

My Lucky Stars back
And...here's the back. I based it on Jeni's Giant Vintage Star tutorial, just made it smaller and out of one fabric. Kelly suggested echo quilting on the inside and outside of the star, and I'm thinking that will be awesome!

Deer Quilt
Deer quilt top
I put this guy together. Pattern from Dare To Be Square Quilting. I need to see what I have on hand for the backing. I'm thinking red binding.

I adore your My Lucky Stars quilt, I love the idea of a star sampler, that's awesome! The backing you pieced looks amazing, and I love your idea for the quilting :)

Love the stars and your deer is so cute! Oh, and the backing of your stars quilt is great. I have a thing about the backs of quilts! They need attention too!

I love that deer quilt! I agree red would look great for the binding. I'm working on the 'do not compute' quilt from the same book! I think I want to make them all :)

Somehow I think I've missed the star quilt before, but it is awesome! Love the colors and variety of stars. The backing for it is really fun, too! I agree that red binding would love fab around the deer. You have just been a little sewing machine, haven't you?

That reindeer is priceless!!!! Plus the fabric you used for your stars is just marvelous, and I love the giant star for the backing, that is trully inspired. Visiting from WIP.
