Works In Progress ... Too many to count!

25 July 2012


This week has been full of projects ... some that are getting in the way of things I really should be working on!


I'm linking up at freshly pieced!

I am almost done with this Ruby Baby Quilt!  I'm just trying to finish hand stitching the binding!


Next .....
I have a TON of these blocks that I need to put together into a quilt.  This is the "pogo stick" block from the Modern Blocks book.
I can't decide which layout I like best.  To be honest, I'm not really super excited about this quilt, the colors aren't popping like I thought they would.

Option #1

Option #2

Option #3

Option #4



I just started this quilt two days ago!  I have 180 HST's ready to piece together!  I'm thinking about layout options for this one too!  It's the week of decisions for me.

Option #1

Option #2

Option #3

Option #4

Option #5

Option #6


Any suggestions?

  3. The quilting on the Ruby quilt looks so nice! Lots of options are nice but sometimes overwhelming. I like the color layout of the top three and option 5 on the hst's. Good luck!

  4. lots of options, what IF you took the 4 dark ones away from the pogo stick pile and just used the rest? I think that's what's "throwing off" the look.
    Or even stick with a 3 x 3 pastel grid?
    maybe make a runner with the 4 leftovers or a small square quilt with sashing or something like that.

  5. I wondered if the pogo stick blocks would "pop" more if you did a dark gray or charcoal sashing in between the blocks? I like option 3 as well.

    For the HSTs, I'm really torn... All the options are wonderful, but if I had to choose, I think I'd pick option 4.

    Good luck. I'm sure both quilts will be fabulous!

    Option 4 or 5 for the second one.

  7. On the first one, it was hard for me to see it really well, but on the HST's I love either #5 or #6. Good luck on chooseing one!

  8. Ooh, HSTs number six definitely! It looks like the grey blocks could be floating on rugged terrain of pattern. Love it!
