Happy Quilt-a-long Tribal
I told you about the quilt-a-long I am joining and here are the beginnings of the squares I cut last night.
X Marks the Spot
Happy accident. I was creating a block for Block Party at Quiltstory (wasn't that so much fun!) and I think I have come up with what will be the cornerstone block for the X. Next step is to put it up on the design wall and then make a bunch more of the Friendship blocks! See more here.
Central Park Pin Wheels
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
I have decided on and sewn the center of this quilt and I think that is going to push me over the finish line on this one shortly. Remember all those charm squares (5x5 inches) that I couldn't cut into... well... here are a few of them!
And then all the other pinwheels will dance around the center working from cream out to brown!
Do you get it? The fabric is called Central Park... and there is a 'park' in the center of this quilt design complete with flowers, animals, and sidewalks. Go ahead scroll back up and take a look.
Yup, I'm pretty smitten about the idea too!! Actually can't contain how giddy it makes me.... or does this just prove how much of a geek I am? Ahh... either way, I will be happy to see this top completed and I can't wait to show you what I picked out for the backing and binding! That will be in next week's installment.
