WIP Wednesday 6/6/12

I wish I could get my WIP list below 10, but it just doesn’t seem destined to happen.  This week I made some progress on the Happy Campers Irish Chain quilt, but got a bit frustrated with it and threw up my hands in favor of an easier project.  Hey, I’m on painkillers, cut me some slack!

Instead, I made this quilt top for one of our closest friends to give to his sister.  She is having her baby any day now and her nursery is coral, aqua and “not girly.”  How hip is that?? 

This was totally inspired by a recent project from Red Pepper Quilts, but looking back at her quilt now, I think I took it in a bit of a scrappier direction.

I constructed the back as one giant scrappy log cabin block and am thrilled with how this came out.  I think I would like to try a scrappy strip project like this one day, but starting from the center and going all the way out.  How cool would that be!?

This is now basted, quilted and has the binding machine stitched to the front, so I have another one to recouperate with this weekend.  I also decided to bite the bullet and forge ahead with the Happy Campers Irish Chain Quilt, so I might be able to finish that one this weekend, too!
