WIP Wednesday

Works in Progress Wednesday! We all have them. Some more than others. I may have 4 or 5 of them right now.  I am trying to be better about completing a project before starting a new one.  Well today I want to share with you a project almost finished, it's a personal project, not for a client.  I have never made a quilt for myself.  When I saw this fabric while I worked at Purl Soho, I fell in love. And purchased so much of it.  It is the Charley Harper line from Birch Organics.  I was overcome with excitement and inspiration!  I couldn't wait to start sewing.  I wanted to make a dress, a skirt, a dress for Harper and a quilt! And then another little quilt for Harper! So many projects so little time.

Here it is.  I am thinking of doing a dark teal navy blue for the binding.  What do you think?

For the back I am using Shot Cotton in Jade, the natural is Kioyhara linen blend, Charley Harper and Shot Cotton in cactus.
My walking foot  has been giving me problems so I quilted this on my Juki industrial.  Some spots on the front I am not too happy with.  So I am hoping to try the walking foot again.
The batting is the lightest weight cotton Dream batting.  The quilt size is a queen.

I am so excited to finish it, I am hoping to buy the binding fabric tomorrow.
