Work in Progress Wednesday - Week 27

I started an unhealthy number of quilts this week. I was bored, I liked the block, it was a new technique, my sister's fabric for her Hunter's Star came, I have an attention problem...whatever.

Based off the Jaybird hexagons. Mine are 6" unfinished, which cuts neatly from fat quarters, and I'm doing the second layout. And I'm going to quilt it like it's a spider web. And the back is going to glow in the dark. It's going to be awesome.

{actual blocks will be half dark blue/half light blue, but I love that she chose the white stars.}
Hunter's Star, round two. This one will be king size. Which, I don't even want to think about how big that is. I'm trying to do a manageable twelve half-blocks a day.

What else is big? Swoon blocks. Except you randomly decide to make 8" blocks. Then you have to piece three times as many. I might not have thought this out completely.

In previous projects:
Sunkissed Jewel Box is still slowly getting pieced together.

Mom's Tennessee Waltz is done and at the quilter's. Need to prep binding.

  1. love your Swoon. Just gorgeous. And I can't wait to see this glow in the dark quilt. Very cool! Reminds me of the guy who quilts in the dark with glow in the dark thread.

  2. I really like the color combo in your Swoon block! And the Jewel Box quilt looks great. I love that pattern!

  3. O my! Uh, you do have a few projects there - ha. But all lovely! I'm curious how you went about cutting down the Swoon blocks. Clever & worth a try to be sure!
