WIP Wednesday!

I've made real progress on my Happy go Lucky (From Simplify by Camille Roskelley) in Summersville quilt over the last few days.
I had already made 26 of the 80 blocks back in the summer and on Sunday, whilst the menfolk were watching the football I got the rest done. Last night got them into rows and added the sashing.
I even had a go at appliquéing the monogrammed block, it didn't turn out too back for a first attempt!! As long as you don't look too close! And now have four extra blocks for ANOTHER cushion!!
I've just got to add a 6" border around it, but am not sure which fabric to use.
I auditioned a few ideas and think I have ruled out more Summersville, as just too busy.
I did think the Kona cotton Bone, but I'm unsure now I've uploaded the photos.
Which do you think goes best?
We have had fun with a small but forceful cleaning crew crashing the photos this morning.
She decided the mess needed her instant attention!

I've still not found the plastic wallet with the cut fabrics for the Epi-Pen pouch, so my son is trying to twist my arm to use some Type on one for him! I know I'll find it as soon as I cut into something else.

Oh, and I may frog the Brigitta wrist warmers and make another Honey Cowl. It's so cold here at the moment and those wrist warmers are too long and not very practical, they are nearly reaching my elbows!!
Thats what I've got in progress today, I hopefully will have a completed quilt top by next week.

  1. I love it. Does it have to have a border? I think it would look good with just binding, but then that might be because I'm not a great fan of borders.

  2. I love how you used the red to create a sort of border with the same blocks.

  3. I'm thinking a red binding would just be perfect.

  4. This is beautiful, love the pop of red. Deb x

  5. The red really makes the quilt. Nice!

  6. Great way to personalize a quilt! I'll have to keep that in mind.

  7. I love this quilt. I have all my pieces to make this quilt out of Swell but I am so very bad at making snowball blocks. Your quilt looks great though.

  8. It looks lovely Joanne, I vote for red for the borders too!

  9. This is lovely and I think the red borders are perfect :)

  10. Fabulous quilt top - I like the Kona Bone. I've made four honey cowls so far, and I don't think my addiction is quite over yet :)


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
