Pretty Pieces


Posted on November 15th, by Amy in work in progress. 16 comments

What a nice, relaxing weekend!  I hope you are refreshed and ready for the week to come!

Early Saturday afternoon, I found opportunity to cut out a quilt top…then I decided to cut another while I was at it.  Starting is often my point of procrastination, so I cut them both!  Then couldn’t resist piecing them both.

On the left is the commission quilt in Lily & Will, and on the right is my next Moda Bake Shop project in It’s A Hoot.  Those HST’s on the left started as 2″ squares – so teeny and adorable!  Hopefully I can keep moving forward this week…things have been so BUSY around here!  I’m really excited to see both of these come together – I’ll keep you posted on my progress!

    Okay, I’m totally coveting the fact that you had time to not only cut out one quilt top, but another one, too, AND start piecing them together!

    ENJOY! :-)

    Blessings,

    Thats exactly the place I often am stuck. I might have an half and hour here and there to sit down and piece but nothing ready to go! Looking forward to seeing the reveal on both of these quilts.

    It was a great weekend, wasn’t it. I love your pretty pieces! Such a great idea to get a jump-start on a couple quilt projects – cut out both at the same time. Cutting is not my favorite part, so I like to have a couple projects cut like this. Can’t wait to see more of your piecing!

    […] a precious and much anticipated new baby arrived!  This is the baby that I have been working on a commission quilt for.  To complete the top, I just needed to know her birthday…I embroidered her name […]
