Seeing Some Progress

I somehow missed this photo last week and I wanted to post it. Muriel did such a beautiful job on this quilt and since she hasn't got her blog up and running yet, I get to show off her work over here.
Here is a flimsy finish. This was the G.O.T. (Gathered over Time) swap I participated in and I got all the setting triangles cut and sewn and the top is now together. I'm currently marking it as I'm going to hand quilt this with a traditional Baptist Fan pattern.
What a great selection of fabrics, there are no repeats in the 9 patch or the setting squares. Swaps are excellent for this.

Since that is now off my design wall, I pulled this WIP out and have got to work on it. I have all, almost all  the blocks pieced.  This quilt is for my nephew.  He wanted blue and silver.  Since there isn't much out there for grey/silver fabrics, I went with the scrappy creams. Plus I wanted all the bonus 1/2 sq triangle to use in a future project.  So far I have a bag of brown/cream and now a stack of blue/cream.  The next one is red/cream and I have a pile of greens just waiting to get cut into strips for one last top of this pattern.  It's from Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville, check it out!  I love her site.

One of my local quilt shops was donating a percentage of their Sat sales to Relay for Life, so I had to make a trip over there.  A quilter can always use a yard or two of green batik, right?  And I finally bought myself a Hera marker.  For some crazy reason, I pulled out this WIP this week and started hand quilting it.  It's not like I don't have a sampler on the go and the above mentioned second hand project I want to start.....geez
I'm sewing Sunday, whoohoo

Muriel's log cabin quilt is a good one. I do like Log Cabin quilts.
Your nine patch is a simple block but looks very good in the on point setting and with so many different fabrics. Baptist Fan is a good quilting design for it. I enjoy doing the Baptist Fan when I hand quilt.

They are all beautiful. I especially like your red flower quilt. Can't wait to see more of it.
