Work in Progress Wednesday - the one in which there is some actual progress

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced 

I've actually finished my Loulouthi tiles quilt!  A marathon 3 hours of tv watching/hand stitching binding and it's done.  Oh, except for washing, which is very necessary as the damn thing is covered in dog hair.

I need to get a decent wide shot of it, I took a whole bunch of the quilting but didn't get one showing the whole thing!  Hopefully tomorrow doesn't rain so I can take it outside for a photoshoot.

But who cares, look at that quilting!  I'm so happy with how it turned out!  It looks hard but it's just hooks that go together to look like feathers.  Yup, this one makes me a proud mama.

not seeing much action:
hexie stars

  1. I was going to comment on how gorgeous the quilting was before you even mentioned it, Chelsea! It is sooo beautiful. Great job! I'd love to see a wide shot of it, but the close-ups lead me to believe that it is a stunner!! Love the colors. xo

  2. Veeeery beautiful! The quilting and the fabrics. I'm hoping for no rain tomorrow too but am not holding my breath!

  3. Looking good Chelsea! I can't wait to see the wide shot.

  4. This looks amazing! The AMH fabrics and the quilting together is perfect. I can't wait to see the whole quilt.
