WIPs With Friends

I am working on another baby quilt with my two friends, Robin and Judith. 
 This time the chosen pattern is called Legandary and it is by Elizabeth Hartman. 
 If you want a copy you can find one right here in her shop.


Now here is some history about this project.  
A woman we all work with is crazy about all Yeti (big foot included), 
so when I saw this pattern I knew this was the one to make for her! 
 They are having a baby girl and these colors are so masculine.  
I decided that I needed to make the Mama Big Foot in pink (with polka dots!) 
 We were all going to make green trees. 
 I cut my trees out. 
 Then I cut her out.  
Then I cut out all the background for the whole quilt.  

On Sunday I sewed her up and was so thrilled with how she turned out.
  I used a print from the Lizzy House Whisper Pallette for the background and I love it.


Next up was my first tree.  Also a Lizzy house print.  Which I probably need more of right?


I wanted to make all the trees,
 but decided I could really only make one more before it was my bedtime.  
I got to use my petite Henna Garden for this one.


I posted on IG several people said they would never have thought to make the Big Foot in pink.  
That's all I needed to get the wheels in my head turning about the forest. 
 I laid in bed tossing and turning when...
EUREKA! 
Why not make a rainbow forest? 
 So then I had to think about how many of each color 
and which one of us would make which color trees. 
(more not sleeping).  
Thankfully I know their stashes!  
So I chose the green (for obvious reasons) and took the orange (they don't like orange).  
I was so excited I could not sleep.  
It was after midnight.  I finally got up and texted them.  
Guess what? 
 Then I was able to get to sleep!!

I am looking forward to getting my orange trees made now. 
 One of my friends just had knee surgery yesterday so it may be awhile until I get her trees, but the baby is not due until April.

Your turn to share what you are working on.  
Anyone working on cutting more squares for the OW QAL? 
 That's on my list after the 2 orange trees.
