Solstice Stars Series : Quilt Top

Solstice Stars Quilt Top

It has been one of those weeks where I wish I had more to share… Despite both kids being sick, I have managed to get some things done. Unfortunately some I can’t share yet. Others aren’t quite ready to be photographed. But I did finish the quilt top for the Solstice Stars Series. And then I took the photos of it upside down. But you get the picture, right?

The rest of the week I’m planning to finish up some things with upcoming deadlines, specifically my For the Love of Solids swap and my quilt start for The Traveling Quilts. Hopefully I will be able to post both of those soon!

Don’t forget to enter the Art Gallery Poetica giveaway if you haven’t already. I’ll be picking a winner tomorrow night!

Catching Up

TATB Sept Bee Block

I feel like things are settling down here from summer and I’m going back to a bit of a routine. That is a nice feeling. Yesterday I made my Twice Around the Block September bee block for Jen. She asked for Drunk Love blocks (ala Denyse Schmidt) and sent a collection of Anna Maria Horner fabrics. So fun!

I am also pulling out some UFOs and getting to work. First up is my Parisville quilt. (Excuse the bad camera phone photo.)

Parisville Progress

I really can’t believe I’ve had this one sitting around for months. Yesterday I finished all the blocks for the top and hopefully today or tomorrow I will have a chance to start sewing them together.

Work in Progress

Quilt Top Work in Progress

I am going to be offline most of next week so I wanted to leave you with something pretty to look at while I’m not blogging. I started cutting into my Parisville this week. I am really liking how the colors work together – this may end up being a nice quilt for my family room!

Also, I have signed up for a Twitter account so if anyone is over there, come find me! @FreshLemons I can’t promise I will ever say anything deep and meaningful but hopefully it will be another way to keep in touch! I’m having a lot of fun keeping up with all the Quilt Market tweets and pictures. It’s *almost* like being there.
