WIP Wednesday: Beanstalks

I had Monday off from work, so this happened:014I mean, why work on other WIPs when you can start a new one? But none of my other WIPs were inspiring me on Monday, and these colors are so cheerful that I couldn’t resist. Already I have a number of strip sets sewn together….002And here are the rest of the strips, queued up and ready for the next chain-piecing session:001Ultimately these are destined to become the “flowers” (?) in the Beanstalks pattern from the book Quilts from the House of Tula Pink.

Since my last post, I also managed to finish the MIL quilt top and back and get it to my quilter. I even managed to get it out in the sunlight first, with the hope of snapping some truer-color photographs. Voila.

You be the judge--does this qualify as "deep teal" and "true red?" (I know, I've leaned toward aqua in a few places, but variety was necessary!)  :)

Most of my points matched up beautifully. Thank you, Julie Herman, for creating such great tools and patterns!

One of my favorite blocks, made from a who-knows-how-old fat quarter. I love the way the subtle stripes radiate out from the center.

And that wraps up my recent quilting efforts. I hope your day is a good one–whether you get to quilt or not.

Linking up to Freshly Pieced–I’m glad Lee likes to post pics of her Aviatrix Medallion quilt, because I love looking at them!WIP Wednesday
