WIP Wednesday: Three Quilts and Block

Wednesday again! Here's what's happening in my sewing room (aka The Clubhouse).

1) Baby Boy Quilt:

I used fabric from the stash for this one, so I could get started without having to run out to the store. I fought my instinct to save things forever and broke up a couple of Pezzy Prints charm packs. Now I'm in love with this color combination: Sky, Indigo, Aqua, Dusty Blue, and Gray. The background is Kona White.

2) Rose Star Blocks:

I. Love. Putting. These. Together. I should be able to get back to working on them soon. Well, March 10th at the latest. There's a lot going on between now and then. Check out Clare's tutorial at selfsewn if you want to make some of these English paper pieced blocks. It's a fun skill to have in your arsenal, and it makes for a great take-along project.

3) Storm at Sea Queen Sized Quilt:

WIP Wednesday definitely keeps me from forgetting about this quilt. It's got some problems, though, and they'll be tedious to work out. I definitely want to finish piecing the top and get this bad boy assembled. (It's one of my goals for 2012.) Realistically, it will be April before I can get to it, though.

4) Baby Girl Quilt:

Oops. I don't think this counts. I know I'll be using some Kate Spain Terrain fabrics. I can't decide if I just want to go ahead and pull from my charm pack or if I want to cut yardage. It will likely end up being some of both. Either way, expect to see this one come together quickly. I need to have it finished and washed by Sunday night.

I can't wait to see everyone's WIPs today! I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced, Sew Much Ado, and Someday Crafts.
