So here we are at Wednesday again, and I don’t have a whole lot to show for it this week. I finished my Going Coastal quilt last Wednesday night, then was too busy to sew for the rest of the week. But as of yesterday, I’m off and running again …

    Wow, the intersections quilt looks great- I love the color scheme. I also love the quilt you made for your dad too- the flags are perfect for the nautical theme. Really nice work this week!

    Hi Lee! I love your Going Coastal quilt – what a beautiful scene with lovely colours & white front of the sky! I hope you don't mind that today I link to something that is not anymore w.i.p. ut because the idea is from you, I just have to show it here! Finally the quilt that I made with your fish-blocks, is ready! I love it! Thank you for the fish and inspiration! I am linking back to you in my post.
    Have a wonderful time! x Teje

    I love your Going Coastal quilt – what a great pattern and I really like the fabrics you chose – especially the madras plaid backing. Thanks for another WIP Wed.

    It is amazing how much fabric a large quilt takes. I remember when I first started quilting and realized that I would need at least 10 yards of fabric for the top of a queen sized quilt. Not to mention the back. Eek! So I stuck with baby quilts for awhile. 🙂

    It is beautiful! And the Going Coastal quilt has me totally inspired. If only there weren't so many beautiful quilts to make – either that or unlimited time to sew. 🙂

    Hi Lee, Both of your quilts look gorgeous. I really like the strong geometric pattern of your intersections quilt. I'm sure your Mum will love it when it's finishes.

    The triangle quilt looks wonderful. I love the fabrics you are using for Intersections. I was wondering how you will quilt the white space, then I remembered that you said you will send it to a LAQ. It will be a gorgeous quilt.

    I meant to ask last week…..are you just using the same pinterest code for each blog post? If so, which one?
    I clicked on it today to see what it did and seen that I got to choose which photo to pin with it.
    I've been taking the time to put in an image url and the post url to get a code.
    Having something generic would just be so much faster!

    Going Coastal is beautiful and I love the Intersections too. I'm using old sheets and curtains right now for backings, budgeting and upcyling – rather than the more truthful broke and desperate! 😉

    Love the intersections quilt! Wow that's an awful lot to pay for backing! Do what Lucy and I do. Use bedsheets! Much cheaper and larger than most typical fabric too =D

    Going Coastal is such a beautiful quilt, and I know what you mean about big quilts. They are gi-normous, esp. if you've been sewing lap-sized quilts just before. After I finished my son's quilt, I swore never again would I do a king-sized quilt. And congrats on getting so many links on your WIP–fun to see this day grow!
