Sneek Peek at Works in Progress

I just thought I'd share a few works in progress, since I haven't gotten a "real" blog post up in a while. I've been gradually working on building inventory for my shop, so I'm ready for the Halloween and Christmas rush, but since things are a little slower now I've been able to work on several quilts this week.

I have an ongoing addiction to I-Spy fabrics and squares.  I've been itching to host another swap, but I have so many squares I really could justify it yet...so I decided to try out making a Plus quilt with I-Spy squares.  I typically have a hard time placing the black and white squares in my regular I-Spy quilts, so I opted for one that was only black and white.

I think next I need to try one like this in blue, green, and brown, since those seem to be the colors that come up the most in I-Spy fabrics...and therefore are the ones I always have extras of.

And to further get ready for a swap, and destash some of my current squares, I've also been sorting them out into a few I-Spy 4" charm sets I have available in my shop...204 squares in a set with 17 of each of 12 colors.  You can find those here, or stay tuned for the swap announcement in the next few days.

I've also been working on a fun red and gold quilt I've been wanting to do for a while.  Any guesses what the inspiration behind this one is?

And I'm nearly finished with this Children at Play Quilt that I started at that quilting retreat a couple months ago.  Now it just needs the binding...which might be done before I go to bed if I'm lucky.

  1. Your red and gold quilt? All I can think of is a Tequila Sunrise!! Brilliant.

    I also love your black and white value plus quilt! I love making those plus quilts - I might have to look into a values one!

  2. Wow! You really have a lot going on. Especially love the red and gold. I'd love to get a head start on getting things ready for my Etsy shop as well, but I seem to just keep making things for gifts other. And of course getting things made for BabyGurl's baby girl's arrival.

  3. I hadn't thought of Halloween as a "rush" season, but I guess it is if you're selling HP wonderfulness. Good job, Polly! I imagine your productive time will slow down a little when school is out...

  4. I love seeing the pieces you are working with/on. You are so creative!
