of the moment is my Star Surround Quilt. I've had lots of questions about whether I should add another row of stars to the bottom to make it a little bigger, whether to add a border to finish it off, what quilting design to use, thread color, etc.
I think I've finally decided that I'm happy with it the way that it is. I'm going to Target in a little bit to see if I can find a sheet that I like for the backing then I will baste it and quilt it with stitch in the ditch around each block and each star (in my mind this makes a really neat design on the back so we'll see). The top thread will be a cream and the bobbin thread will be decided after I get my sheet. :)
Sorry for the super blurry photo. I am actually considering getting a real camera. It just seems like one more thing I have to keep track of though (sigh!).
A more in focus photo so you can see some of the fabulous colors.
And a finish from a couple of weeks ago. I've been making all of my samplers from the Frosted Pumpkin patterns into pillows with envelope style closures on the back. Although I didn't get a photo of the back of this pillow I used the green Noteworthy print with birds. I'm still not sure if I like the light aqua as the border. I had my eye on something much brighter but while at a sew day I was greatly outnumbered when we voted and decided to go with the majority. It's pretty, I'm just not sure it's summery enough for me. Another problem I have with it is that I didn't do any quilting around the edges and I'm regretting it now. Don't get me wrong, I still like this pillow I just should have though it out better and gone with my gut instinct.
A new WIP (no photo, sorry) is my Road 15 Quilt. I'm using a pattern from Simply Retro-can't remember the name of the pattern. I have almost all of my pieces cut -due to bad planning and deciding to make it bigger than the pattern called for I ran out of fabric-and have started piecing it together. It has no intended recipient but I've wanted to make it for a couple of months so instead of working on my August goals or special orders from the Etsy shop, that is what I will be doing today :)
