WIP Wednesday

Hailey my 12 year old has been piecing a quilt for the past few months.  She did a good job, the corners are not quite as square as I would like them but she is 12 and this is HER quilt.  Yes, it's hard for me to let her do things with less perfection than I would like.  Quilting/ Math...... the list goes on.  That is why I could not let her be in my Math class I taught at her school last year,  she stresses me.  
She has almost finished though.  Today she machine quilted 1/2 her quilt and tomorrow I will assist her in the other half.    Her fabric choise was Adorn It, and she made a pillow to match along with a pillow sham.  She will enter these into the county fair next week as her 4-H project.

My current project is a quilt for another niece who just graduated and will be coming to college near our home in a few weeks.  She didn't really have a favorite color, just a preference of 'deep' colors.  I love the feel of Batics and so they were my choice, these are by Moda.

Today I have been sewing together the blocks I created right before we left on vacation. 

All the while I do this piecing, I am dreaming of making a beautiful quilt like this one with Sew Kind of Wonderfuls Urban Escape pattern.

I went to a trunk show by Jenny and Helen and fell in love with a lot of their quilts.  So I purchased their quick curve ruler, a few patterns and just can't wait to start another project!

I'm linking these up with Freshly pieced! WIP and Let's Bee Social whose tabs are on the side and Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation

Oh my goodness! Your Batic quilt is going to be gorgeous. I, too, love some deeper shades. And your daughter's quilt so far looks great! Love the little owl and the great color combo.

Wow! What a post filled with so much eye candy! Hailey's quilt is so pretty. And that owl... Adorable! Looks like she is following in your footsteps in the quilting department, if not the math. Your batik rails is beautiful, too. Looking forward to seeing what you make with your new curves ruler!

You have lots of work there. I can tell you that you will love the quick curve ruler and how easy it is. I love it and have a few quilt tops done already.
