wip wednesday {05. 02. 2012}

This is what my design wall looks like these days - I love how bright and colorful and full of different blocks it is. I'm simultaneously working on 3 different quilts, plus that lonely teapot block really needs to be finally used in some project. I've never worked on so many quilts at once before and I'm enjoying it a lot.

The string quilt is based on the one named Valentine from The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman. I decided to use more colors and make my quilt a little smaller than what the instructions call for, so I needed to draw my own layout. I need to make 30 blocks, I have 9 so far, clearly I have a long way to go.

My second quilt is based on this beauty Rita made a while ago. I'm planning on this being our picnic blanket but I might change my mind. A lot depends on how soon I'll get sick of making an insane amount of HSTs.

The other day I was trying to replicate the wonderful bedding Denyse Schmidt designs and this block is what I came up with. I actually made another similar block which I turned into a pillow case over the weekend, so the same fate might await this lonely block. I thought these colors would work great for a quilt in our bedroom but I'm just not sure anymore.

So, that's what I've been working on lately. How about you?
