WIP Wednesday

I have a couple of projects I want to share today that I have been working on. 

1) Not sure what to call it yet, so right now it's just oriental triangles.  Hopefully I can come up with something better than that. 

It started with another 'sweet treat' pack from Pin Cushion Boutique that I purchased a couple of years ago.  I also had some oriental's in my stash that I added to get some lights into the quilt.  I actually was using the camera to help me see lights and darks better when laying it all out. I am in the process of piecing the triangles together now. Over half way done, yeah! Not sure what to do for a border yet, so this might get sidelined.  We'll see. 

2) Yet another Sweet Treat pack that I supplemented with extra yardage to complete the borders.  I so LOVE these colors! They are so great together and really POP!

I had not tried the night vision block before, but I love how it looks like origami or something.  Maybe I should have used orientals for this one :). There was some in-setting, but it all went smoothly and I am really happy with the results.  This needs to be quilted now and I just acquired the backing, so hopefully this one will be done soon. 

There's always a huge list, but these are my focus right now. My challenge for myself this year is to try to purchase as little as possible and just work through my stash.  We'll see how I'm feeling about that in a couple months :). Until then, it's back to work.

Oh, and I am going to try linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP.  Hope it works; crossing my fingers.


  1. Wow, two great looking tops there, the night vision block really does look like origami, green and pink go so well together.

  2. Your night vision blocks is so pretty. I love your colour choices.

  3. your night vision blocks are lovely! I have never seen this block before. I am trying to use up some of my stash this year, too. I did buy a layer cake the other day, but overall, I have been buying a lot less than I've been using.
