WIPs With Friends (and a Giveaway)

Let's see if we can get 10 people to link up this week!  
If we get 10 people then I will have a giveaway.  
You will get an extra entry if you get a friend to link up and leave me a comment saying so.

On to what I have been working on.  How is this always an endless list??  

First up I got my June Bee blocks made.  
This was an easy block and I really like how it looks.  
Our priest is being transferred (they only get to stay for 6 years) and
 I thought this might be a nice one to make a throw quilt for him. 
 I think I would make the + in blue though.  The squares are 5" and it went together so quickly. 
 I wonder if I can find a low volume charm pack?? 
 Might speed things up eh? 
 I will put that on my "to do" list!


Progress continues on my Folksy Fish quilt.  This is my version of a Catfish!


This is my fishy number 8.  


 It was night time but I thought you might like to see the 8 fish I have made so far.
 I am making some improv style water to fill in the spaces.  
This is not the final layout.  
I need some advice.  
I have one more fish to make and he will be swimming in the opposite direction. 
 I am thinking about making him a different color.  
Navy? 
 Orange?  
Or maybe the same teal but with an orange stripe?   
The quilt is for a baby boy, so no pink or purples. 
 I am leaning toward the navy, with maybe a hint of orange in it.  
Thoughts?


Lastly I received the final sea horse yesterday at work.
  I decided that the rest of my week is SO busy 
that if it was going to be finished it would have to be now.
 I finished the top last night, but the backing and batting.  
It is ready to make it's way to the quilter!!  It was dark so I hope to get some photos later.  
Check out that minky backing!!


I am linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts.

If we can get 10 people (or more) to link up I will have a giveaway.

I'm playing with plus blocks and low volume neutrals as leaders and enders right now. Fun fun! LOVE your improv fish. I especially LOVE the water they are in. Can't wait to see them all swimming together. Have fun!

I think that a fish with a complimentary and contrasting colour would be great!! Orange like a goldfish would be awesome!!

Mia said...

I love all your quilt fishes!

I think orange for the fish would make it pop and then would notice he is swimming the opposite direction. Navy may make h
It blend in to much. They are all cute fish.
