1. I spent the majority of the past week working on my most recent work in progress, the Bangles quilt from Sarah Fielke's great new book. This quilt may look sweet and innocent, but it is a bit of a beast. There are so many y-seams it is getting a little draining, but I do really appreciate the practice and now that I am getting close to finishing the quilt top, I am actually enjoying piecing the blocks together. It is just a little slow and tedious.
Please forgive this terribly grainy photo I took with my phone last night.
When I finish working on a quilt I like to ask myself whether or not I would consider making the quilt again, and I definitely still feel like I would make another one of these so I guess it hasn't been too bad :) I do appreciate that it is on the smaller size for a lap quilt, the finished size is 53.5x57.5". It is for my soon-to-be-8-year-old niece so I think the size will be perfect.
2. Maple Leaf Rag quilt. I probably won't share any more photos of this one until I am done hand quilting. Progress was made, though not much.
3. I haven't actually started this, but my daughter has requested that I make her a birthday crown. She will be 5 on Monday and I have never seen someone so excited about something :)
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
