WIP Wednesday: Kaleidoscopic


Wednesday again? Okay then, grab some coffee, settle in, and let’s talk WIPs!

Having finished Preppy the Whale, I’m moving on to the other baby quilt on my to-do list—this one’s for a girl. After starting with a bunch of HSTs, I decided I wasn’t loving the direction it was taking, and I’ve switched to a kaleidoscope quilt instead.

I’m liking it so far. I think. Also, I think I’ve gotten too much done now to change my mind again. : )

Oh, and. Sleeves. It’s the grain of salt in any quilt show acceptance. You’re soooo crazy excited to have your quilt in a show—and then you realize, that means you have to make a dang hanging sleeve. And hand-stitch the thing onto the back of the quilt. Not my favorite part of the process, I have to say, but at least I can watch lots of brainless TV while I’m working on it.

So who’s our sponsor this week? Why, it’s the lovely Cuts of Cotton! Cuts of Cotton is a great place for basics, and they’ve got some fab new ones in stock, including Doe, Prisma Elements, and new Architextures colors. Crosshatches, anyone?

GIVEAWAY: Emily from Cuts of Cotton is giving away a pack of Kona pre-cut hexies to one random winner! You can make a hexie quilt without having to worry about all the cutting—and yes, you can machine piece these babies! Here’s a great tutorial for doing just that.
