WIP Wednesday: Quilty Energy

My bursts of quilty energy are so bizarre. Case in point: on Sunday, I spent a fantastic day sewing with Rachel and Neva. I drove home for about an hour and arrived around 9 pm, and, after lugging my machine and all my stuff back inside, I apparently felt like cutting up all my sister's t-shirts. Mind you, these t-shirts have been sitting in a bag in my closet for about a year. So there's one WIP - my sister's long-overdue t-shirt quilt! She's lucky I love her so much!


 This week is dedicated to Ashley's progressive medallion quilt, until I finish or lose steam. So far, Ashley, Renee, and Laura have created a MASTERPIECE that, quite frankly, I've been pulling out all month just to stare at. First, I added the orchid Domino dot border, and now I'm working on strip blocks above (inspired by Elizabeth Hartman's Aviatrix Medallion). I'm still deciding exactly what the last border will be, though I have a couple of ideas!

 

So far, this bee has been my favorite *swap* ever. It's been such a pleasure working with friends and making unique quilts. Laura recently sent me a picture of my quilt on Instagram and I cannot WAIT to get it!!

  6. Oh, I love your border, though there's nothing to not LOVE about this quilt! And I know just what you mean about the energy. I had no problem finishing a quilt top Friday night - did I get it basted over the rest of the weekend? Nope. Maybe soon..... :D

  8. What fun colors to work with - I bet all the purple is making it that much more fun to add to, Jess! Our guild partners with a few others nearby and does a yearly medallion/border round robin. They just unveiled the ones that were started by our guild's members at the last meeting and WOW - it is amazing to see the creativity the process inspires and how surprised everyone was by what had been done with their centers. I can't wait to see all the STQ (?) quilts when you guys finish our swap!
