WIP Wednesday Quilt-Alongs

I haven’t written a Work in Progress post for a long time but have been inspired to do so by my friend, Sarah Goer, who has written several WIP Wednesday posts lately letting us know all the wonderful things she has been working on, and in her last WIP Wednesday post, she also let us know what projects she has cut loose which I think is important to do every so often. Life is too short to work on things that don’t bring us joy and satisfaction.

I am currently participating in two quilt-alongs, and I’m getting so much pleasure and enjoyment sewing blocks (or units) for both of them. The first one is Quilty Therapy’s Charming Plus Quilt-Along, and it’s coming along nicely. I’ve sewn four of the rows together and have three more to go. I love these colors and fabrics so much!

The other quilt-along that I am participating in is Inquiring Quilter’s Berry Cross Quilt-Along. Jennifer and I both participated in the 2016 Cloud 9 New Block Blog Hop. That’s where I first saw her Berry Cross block. I really like the versatility of this block and how using blocks with opposite color layouts in the same quilt can produce such awesome results. And I’m so fond of the Berry Harvest palette that Yvonne, Cheryl, and Stephanie chose for the Cloud 9 blog hop that I decided to replicate this color scheme in Kona solids.

I’ve completed units for four blocks so far though the pic below just shows units for two blocks:

    I love the plus sign quilt!! I hope its for yourself. Looks cozy. As for the cross block, that pink, berry, and teal reminds me so much of Mom! I think she just made contact!

  2. Oh wow, I’m so glad you liked the palette enough that you stuck with it for the quilt along with Jennifer! 🙂
