Working on Woven

Around February, I got sick of winter.  I longed for warmer weather, bright colours, spring flowers.  I decided a new summer quilt was in order.  I had really loved Kate Spain's Terrain when I used a charm pack to make some pillows a year earlier - so I searched the internet for yardage of ordered a half yard of almost every print.  Then my buddy Jess wrote a Moda Bakeshop tutorial - and I knew it was the perfect design for my quilt.  

I tested out the pattern on a little throw pillow.  I used some solids from a Kona bright jelly roll, and Essex linen in natural.  I quilted it in various pinks and oranges.


I liked it.  I could do this block over and over again.  So I cut the Terrain into strips and got to it.  
Since a block only takes about 20 minutes, my goal has been two a day.  I hope to have the quilt done by the end of June - and by done I mean quilted too!
  

I keep the blocks under some books to keep the many seams nice and flat.  
(Yes I have a book about knitting dog sweaters - you got a problem with that?!?  I have chihuahuas - they get cold!)


I'm not quite sure how many I've got so far, but so far I'm loving it!

I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  5. I love your pillow, especially the quilting. It really compliments the weave look. I would also like to see some of the dog sweaters you've made. My sisters have chihuahua's and they might like something like that. :)
