WIP Wednesday - Penny Candy

Pin It
Penny Candy WIP

First off -- I am pleased to report that things around here are MUCH BETTER than they were a week or so ago. :)  I have to thank a rain storm that came through, and my mom who sent my husband home so that he could help get everything done.  The living room is painted, and Steiger's room... *phew*  Scarlet's room is next; I'm gonna have to figure that one out.

I've been making progress on my "Just 3" goals for the month.

I got the paper versions of "French Kisses" ready to send to the printers. :)  (One goal done)

It was really slow going (due to the reasons mentioned before), but I also got most of the top for pattern #2 done.  It's a Jelly Roll or Layer cake pattern (this is the Jelly Roll version here), and just needs borders.
Steiger helped me hold it in the wind. :)  (Thank you Steiger).

The featured fabric is Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille.

Penny Candy

These little blocks are really fun to make; they come together like a puzzle... I'm still working on the baby size version with my very small collection of Denyse Schmidt prints.  I'm making a rainbow and adding it to the My Precious Quilt a Long my friend Kelly is hosting. :)

"Penny Candy" baby blocks

I contacted a local photographer to trade her pictures for quilts to use in her business (like this kind of idea) - so I really need to get cracking on that!

Scarlet and Steiger are growing too fast!

And my PSA for the day -- my local quilt shop, The Quilt Corral, has the entire line of Echo by Lotta Jansdotter in stock.  A couple friends had me pick up a fat quarter bundle for them, and my LQS said they'd take phone orders if any one else wants some.  They'll cut bundles or have yardage -- I know Echo is hard to find... so if you need some, give them a call... 

echo...echo...echo...
