WIP Wednesday #1

I guess there's a first time for everything... I am linking up with Lee from Freshly Pieced for the first time today to show my work in progress!
Because all I have to share is work in progress, nothing is finished at the moment. That means I probably won't meet the deadline for the march quilt. This is what it looks like now:

I only finished the blocks yesterday, but I hope by tomorrow night they will have become a quilt top.

I managed to fit in a trip to the fabric store last weekend. After the whole turquoise disaster, I had to get new fabric for the Freebird quilt. I came home with three choices: Kona cotton in eggplant, in celery green and in ivory. I took some of the strips with me, but then I could not make up my mind in the store which one I like best. And some Kona cotton in the stash doesn't hurt, no? At the moment, I tend towards the eggplant, I think that would be the boldest and most fun solution. Plus, it matches the purple in the Freebird fabric perfectly. The green one would be nice, too, it's kind of a neutral, but still fun.  The the ivory is my "safe" solution.

Any suggestions?


  1. Diggin' the green, but the adventuresome part of me says eggplant! This is going to be gorgeous!

  2. Beautiful blocks! I can't wait to see your Freebird quilt finished. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday! : )
