WIP WednesdayCan you believe there are only 30 days left of Spring? We haven't even HAD Spring yet in Colorado -- my furnace still kicks on every morning!
Here is my Anna Lena Block-a-Day Chevron quilt. The idea is, even if you can't make a whole quilt, you at least can make one block per day! These blocks are the easiest, I have no excuse for not keeping up:
My second WIP this Wednesday is the Fat Quarter Shop's 2012 Designer Mystery BOM. I absolutely love the fabric, Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille. In fact, I love it so much I added three blocks to make the quilt 15 blocks rather than 12!
The blocks are (top row, left to right):
"Weather Vane" by Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson; "April Showers" by Sweetwater; "Lakeside Retreat by Joanna Figueroa, "County Fair" by Julie Comstock; and "Mint Julep" by Lisa Bongean.
(middle row, left to right):
"Mexacali Rose" by Marti Michell; "Cherry Sundae" by Barb Adams and Alma Allen; "Five Geese Flying" "by Marti Michell; "Signed Sealed Delivered" by Amy Burg Gibson; "Lime Sherbet" by Bonnie Olaveson and Camille Roskelley.
(bottom row, left to right)
"Laundry Days" by Anne Sutton; "Moonlight Serenate" by Sandy Gervais; "Breezy Afternoon" by Aneela Hoey; "Sunday Drive" by Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson; and "Town Square" by Kate Spain.
While searching for the names of the blocks, I found more made with the Vintage Modern fabrics. I may make this quilt 20-block size!

This calls for a "Big Giveaway!" And what could be bigger than a stack of 24 fat quarters? I love this collection, "Spirit" by Lila Tueller for Moda. Plus, both the "M" and "S" sets of Marti Michell's templates.
