WIP Wednesday

Mittwochs kann man auf vielen -meist englischsprachigen-  Quiltblogs sehen, welche (halb-)fertigen Projekte sich in dieser Woche dort stapeln. Eine spannende Sache, der link findet sich am Ende des Beitrages.

Since last Wednesday  I finished the '1+1=♥' quilt. Blogged  here.

I like it so much that I´d rather keep it, it even fits my mini sparkle punch pillow!
 Good that I already dedicated it to the bridal couple on the quiltback, otherwise... ;-)


measurements: 45" x 70"

the fabrics for the crosses came from my stash
background fabric: I´ll share a well kept secret here - it looks like Alexander Henry´s 'Heath' or  like 'Weave' from the Summersville line (I love both fabrics but just couldn´t find them here in A) but -ta-daa!- it´s a cotton duvet cover from Ikea ('Henny Väv') that I bought only for this purpose. WOF is about 60" and its more than 160" of fabric, so if you calculate in fat quarters the price is unbeatable. It was very nice to sew with and I need to get some more!
An EPP project that I started ages ago and that went nowhere was quickly turned into a pillow front...

It feels so good to work on some very old WIPs! Because I was already looking through my WIP boxes I also made a babyquilt out of some WIP starblocks. It´s basted and quilted now and I just have to decide on the color for the binding. Blogged here
