Yesterday I did a bunch of shopping for MOTU, so to reward myself I went to Joann's and used up some coupons. I got this nifty book which has literally opened up entire new worlds for me. I never thought to quilt using paper stencils. Duh. I think I need to get myself some thinner paper, but for now just plain printer paper is working ok.
quilt for the neighbor, I signed up for one of the kids in the Wrapped in Hope program. My girl likes dancing (but not ballet) and the color orange. Her birthday is in March, so I need to get working on this. I'm cheating and using a modified version of the QFK pattern for this. I have a lot of the dark orange and a bit of the pink/orange hearts and the lighter orange. So that pic up there is the basic pattern I'm using. Grey is the focus print (dancers), and the rest of the colors are self-explanatory.
I also have the wedding quilt and the colonial quilt for our bed in progress as well...should really put some more time in on those. They're just really big and slightly overwhelming right now. But I'll get there. Really.
I actually finished the entire top before going to bed last night. I don't have a good picture of the whole thing, but here's a sneak peek anyway:
