WIP: All WIP as good as done
I finished up two big quilt tops that had been lingering and am taking them to the long arm quilter tomorrow. That's as good as done in my book. That means I have no works in progress. That is such a liberating thought. I have a bunch of stacks of fabric for projects, but I haven't cut into them, so they aren't WIP yet.
I present B's Bento Box. It is always windy where I live, so forgive the slightly ripples, it was the best shot I got.
Here is the rainbow quilt for my mom.
I had stopped working on it in the spring because I ran out of fabric to do a square Boston Commons, as my mom had requested. She's been visiting the last week and we worked out a solution. We made it a rectangle and then framed it with the navy and yellow batiques. I wish I had gotten a picture pre border because the border really changed the way it looked. The navy and yellow border is really electric. I was not a fan of this design at the start. It's not my usual style. But that can be a good thing. I've ended up LOVING this quilt. My mom is going to hang it in her stairwell, so the long narrow shape will work well.
