WIP Wednesday: July 27

I missed last weeks WIP Wednesday hosted by the lovely Lee over at Freshly Pieced, because Mi Galego Obstinado took his phone to here...

Cies Illas
Las Cies

and here...

Cathedral of Santiago de Compostella
Botafumeiro at Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

But now he's back as well as his camera, so here is the long-and-short of my WIPs:

Garden of Stars

I have finished piecing the remaining stars...

However, I'm struggling to finish the connectors I need. So far I have this...
Garden of Stars

Yes, I only have one of them completed. I don't know when I'll get the rest finished, they are fairly boring to work on and anyway I'm under a deadline to finish this...

Arcadian Quilt -- Wedding Gift for a Wedding in June

I have gotten a lot done the past two weeks; though it doesn't seem like much in retrospect. There is a lot of hand quilting involved with this project, so I'm happy to say, I'm half-way through. This is my main focus of work for the next few weeks...

Blue Bow Quilt

Since both of my major projects are labor intensive, I took some time and played around with my two new rulers (photos coming in the next week), and started piecing this...

Blue Bows.July 27

Which is made from Kona Black and the left over fabric from my Curtain Call Dress. I'm thinking it will end up being a crib-sized quilt, which is perfect since I still have two more babies arriving this year amongst our friends :)


  1. OMG, I love that black and blue bowtie quilt top! And your hexie stars just about made me fall over - SOO amazing!

  2. I wish I had gone along with that camera! I love traveling.

    All your projects are delightful, but like Elizabeth D, I'm drawn to that bow-tie quilt with its wonky little butterfly-like pattern flying over the black background. It will be great to see it finished!

  3. Hey! The Garden of Stars top looks right at home with the cathedral pic! :D And that is going to be one stunning baby quilt.

  4. Love that hexie quilt! And that blue bow-tie is so striking!

  5. Wow! Garden of Stars is incredible, I love it. And count me as another fan of the bow-tie quilt, it's stunning! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

  6. It's a good thing you added "amongst our friends" to your very last sentence - my heart skipped a beat when I thought you were having twins this year. I'm always a fan of your lovely hand quilting. Well done, ma'am :)
