WIP Wednesday

A busy week has flown by again. And I'm happy to report that I have made some progress in the crafty department!

Quilting:



1. Master Bedroom Quilt: I finished the back, a completely different style than I usually do! I usually use white flannel and a strip of fabric to echo the front. This quilt back is inspired by this quilt back on flickr which was actually the reason I wanted to make this quilt in the first place! I was thankful for my husband's input the day I was making the quilt back - I was nervous that the orange might be too much - we experimented with white but I'm glad we decided to be bold! You can see a picture of the front of my quilt on this post.



2. Patchwork quilt. I have been really drawn to patchwork quilts on flickr lately. I also have been wanting to buy new fabric and it's not in my budget at the moment ... so I looked through my stash and I'm going to use up the Lizzy House Red Letter Day fabric I bought last year - a stash busting project! Hooray!



3. Mug Rugs: Last week I spent some time playing and made two little mug rugs. A fun and satisfying project - I really like how quick they are to make!

The orange on your quilt is definitely not too much, it's stunning! I just love it! And I'm insanely jealous of your Red Letter Day fabric, I missed out on that line. Have fun with that one!

Thanks for linking up with WIP Wednesday, have a great week. : )
