On the Wall in June

This is what it looked like 2 weeks ago.. wall

And here it is as of today.. about 1/4 of the way through.

circles2

I like the look of circles that is created. The orange triangles are pieced from my orange stash binge. I have way too many of these, this quilt won’t make much of a dent. Each block is 3.5″, so each large circle is about 21″. I need to think about:

  • how big I want this quilt to be
  • what I want in the centre of the orange triangles. I am thinking of the QSTs with blue and orange as holding that spot for something really spectacular
  • border or no border? I don’t usually put them on my quilts, but this one might look even better with a border

Thank goodness for Marti Michell templates for creating the trickier blocks! Stay tuned for progress on this quilt!

Teal Tumbler

I posted a work-in-progress photo of this quilt a while ago, and for some reason have not posted about it since. It has been finished for quite a while (note the snow in the garden). Binding a quilt is my least favourite part, but I am loving the colour orange with EVERYTHING right now, so this was done pretty quickly. (Note: click on photos for larger image). It is resting happily on our bed right now, as it has moved up to the top of my favourites list. This is a great design for those of you looking to use up your scraps, which I did here. I did limit my colour range, and am so happy with the palette I chose. Click on photos for closer view.
