A few works in progress....

The last couple of days, I have done a little bit of sewing on different projects. I finished the Woodland Bloom Quilt top for my daughters room. This is a queen size quilt. It measure 99 inches by 80 inches. This is the biggest quilt top I have ever made. I am a bit scared to quilt this monster on my little domestic machine. But I will get it done.


The next project I have been working on is my hexagon star quilt. I have not worked on this quilt in quite a while. This top is all hand pieced. It will also be a queen size quilt. I have 9 more rows to do. I have about 60 stars made that just need to have the white border put on. I do love this one. I did not iron it before I took the picture. So it looks a bit shabby.


Tonight I decided to play a bit with my little 1 1/2 inch half square triangles that I had leftover from one of my quilts. I made a tiny little zig zag block. Isn`t it cute? The finished squares are 1 inch.

Well, I did not finish anything. But I did get some work done. I am working all weekend. So, I am only going to get a bit done. I hope you all have a nice weekend.

Ariane :o)

You've been busy as a beaver as always! I really like the zigzag block. Well, I like them all really! Your speed amazes me. I used to be fast when I pieced all the time, but since I started cross stitching so much again, I've gotten slow. :( I must fix that! Have a great weekend!
