Quilt Progress

Ethan's clamshell quilt is coming along and I am quite happy with it.  I work on it during Ethan's nap, at night, and with Jessica and Belinda, my crazy quilting buddies.

My Liberty sampler quilt has been on hold while I wait for my solid cotton contrasting fabric to arrive.  However, tonight I decided to jump in and do a log cabin block because it requires all printed fabric.  Did I fall in love with the hodge-podge-I-don't-care-if-I-don't-match look?  Not really.  Am I curious about experimenting and seeing where this project takes me?  Absolutely.

I got together with the women from my prenatal class today.  (We get together on a regular basis with all of our babies.)  The crazy quilters and I rolled out our clamshell quilts and sewed happily while we caught up with the other moms in the group.

We had a huge snowstorm today.  It has been so cold, even the ocean is freezing over.  Stay warm!

Just beautiful! I think the Liberty sampler will be gorgeous! I'm curious to know what solids you ordered and from where! I can't wait to see what happens with it!

P.S. I'm so jealous of your snow! We didn't get any yet!

Love you sis!

I love the log cabin block! I keep encouraging Susie to experiment a little with her fabric choices on her quilt...not sure she's conviced. Lilli and Ethan will have to Skype again soon. She enjoyed talking to him!

The quilt is looking great! Looks like you'll be done in no time at all! By the way, if you think it is cold there, you should feel it here! We are supposed to get down to 2 degrees at night. Ugh!

Oh, your Liberty sampler quilt is looking gorgeous!!! I hope you are staying warm! It is frigid here too. I am ready for spring whenever!
