Quilts in Progress

Here is a little preview of the Doll Quilt that i am making. I am still unsure if I will make them smaller or leave them yet as they are quite big and may look a little silly. Actually yes I will make them smaller I think.

Here is another quilt top that I have just finished. It is taken from the "Baby Fats" quilt book and I just used some FQ's that I had in my stash. I still have 3 more to put together. I hope that it doesn't look too scrappy, I had trouble matching up the fabrics, it's not really my strong point.

AJ's Doll Quilt progress

Copied from my blog...

After getting very frustrated with and not having any inspiration from the materials I had already bought for the Doll Quilt I went to Spotlight...I was very uninspired there too! But came home and sat and sat and looked through my quilting books....and so here is what came of it.....
Some very tiny tiny triangles and lots of fiddling....
makes for some very tiny tiny flying geese...I've never made flying geese before....and tiny is hard...most of the points are right but somehow a few of them moved when I was sewing...I have already unpicked some of them...but I think it adds character...!!

And so yesterday from nothing we now have a completed Dolls Quilt top...waiting sandwiching....which I should get done today....pitty I can't show it yet!!

Helen's start......

This is what I am up too! I have rummaged through the stash and picked out these bits of fabric. So, my colour choices are ready to go, and I have the pattern in my head, ready for action! Of course my colour selection will most likely change as I go along, doesn't it always? Yeeeehar!

Where are you up too??

With 7 weeks left before the posting date...I thought I'd check and see where we are all up to!
So post a comment to let us know...have you picked fabric, ordered fabric, raided the stash, decided on a pattern, started cutting and still playing with ideas or nearly finished?
