WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I almost never buy quilt books or patterns but I liked the designs I saw in Living Large 2 so I asked for it for Christmas last year. I finally got started on one of the quilts.

spaghetti junction

I’m making the cover quilt Spaghetti Junction. I bought a blogger bundle of fat quarters called Luna Landing from Pink Castle fabrics. Yep, I’m using a purchased pattern and fat quarters bought just for this quilt which I am going to keep. It is weird for me.

So far I have this:

spaghetti junction blocks

I’m making it as a leader – ender project so I can be working on multiple quilts at once.

This bunch of blocks:

asteriks

Has become this:

asterick QOV

This top is going to be heading off to be quilted and then will be donated through Quilts of Valor. I’m coordinating a project to get 25 quilts donated for a retreat for veterans with PTSD in the spring. If anyone is interested in helping out, let me know.

  1. oh this is REALLY interesting! I like it alot! Thanks for linking up to wip Wednesday this week where I’ve enjoyed guest-hosting!

  2. Love that news print fabric! I’ve recently come to accept that as a quilter I am much better at following other peoples patterns than making my own. Oh well, just means I need to buy more quilting books!

  3. I love both your projects. Red and gray is such a striking combination! I like your profile. The first three don’t apply to me but the rest do. It made me think how I would describe myself in a few words!

  4. I really like the pink/red and gray quilt, especially that border fabric. It’s my goal to do a Quilt of Valor this year, so I better get cracking.
