Flying by with WIP Wednesday

I know it is cliche but, boy where has the last week gone? Nothing really exciting has been going on here but the days just flew by. The three day weekend was much appreciated  as we all just took it easy. And our outlook has improved since I last posted. Classes are continuing and we are taking it a day at a time.

So last week I had my Soho Chic Ziggurat top on my design wall. You can see it here. I spent some quality time with that top last Wednesday evening, and got the borders on it, and on Friday, I dropped it off to Terry to quilt. She had some great ideas for the quilting. Can wait to see it!

Which left me with an empty design wall - horrors! LOL! As I was pawing through one of my numerous plastic storage bins I came across a panel of birds from Sandy Gervais' Tranquility collection and they chirped in unison that it was time I did some thing with them, and so I did.

Here's where I am so far...

I'm making improv pieced blocks for the alternate squares and for the sashing I'm doing random length 2.5" wide pieces of fabric.

Aren't these great birds? I LOVE Sandy Gervias' style and I think she does the most amazing collections of Fall fabrics.


And here are some close ups of my improv blocks. I started with a layer cake of the Tranquility collection and added in a charm pack of her latest Fall line, Hello Fall, and sprinkled in bits and pieces of other Fall collections she has done.

I have enough yardage of the olive green print from the Tranquility line to do the border and I think I'll add a small border of that pumpkin fabric from the Hello Fall collection.

Now I'm off to finish that last improv block and get this top together...

this little bird says don't forget to check out all the other interesting WIPs over on Freshly Pieced!
