So it is back to school time here which for me, means back to those WIP (Work In Progress). I have promised myself before I dive into another new quilt top, I would try finish the other quilts that are 85% done! I like doing the quilts tops, backs and the quilting. I just need a binding fairy!
So this past week I finished my “Wasabi Love” Quilt.
I called it Wasabi Love because when I was picking out the fabrics, the yellowish color was called Wasabi and it just cracked me up.
Here is my shopping cart with all the KONA color choices.
Steel, Pomegranate, Candy Pink, Azure, Wasabi, and Snow
So the big question I kept getting about this quilt was,
“Where did you come up with those color choices?”
Well…It was my jewelry bag.
Here it is with all the yummy fresh cut fabric.
When I finished playing with an arrangement for the HSTs (Half Square Triangles) and I settled into committing to sew, I feared quilting this one myself. I got stuck on seeing past a routine HST tracing. So, I sent this to Nancy at Quilt With A View and she did her longarm magic to it. She did a great job!
Here is some detail.
When I am doing a quilt top I am already thinking about something fun to do to the quilt back with any scraps I have left over.
Here is what became of this quilt back. You can see some more detail from Nancy’s Long Arm work.
This quilt won’t be for sale.
The colors and the fun I had when I did this, just make me giggle!
I can’t wait to see what my next finished WIP will be. It is a good feeling!
