Works in Progress, 4/18/12

 I found this little treasure from
the Doll Quilt Swap 12
in my mailbox last week!
Isn't Whitney amazing?!
It's so cute!

 Zig Zag tote, from Zakka Style
(leftover triangles from some Swoon blocks --
I've yet to finish my Swoon quilt!)
 2 more Retro Flowers blocks, for a total of 6.
I just love these!
 And I finally finished up my Color Wheel Quilt --
pattern available at 
 Still undecided how to quilt this one--
any suggestions?!?!

Linking up to:
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. wow - lots of beautiful stuff here!! LOVE your Zakka tote and really like your color wheel too!

  2. Love the colour wheel. How about quilting it in concentric circles or go in a spiral one way on the colour and then reverse the direction on the solid. I wouldn't quilt the centre circle at all.
    Will look forward to seeing how you finish it off.

  3. I love your colour wheel quilt - I quilted a similar quilt with diagonal lines through the "blades" that ended up looking like spokes in a wheel and it worked really well. Here's the link: Wonder Wheel. Whatever you do, I'm sure it will be fab!

  4. Gorgeous stuff! Love the colour wheel, it's on my to do list as well.

  5. Very productive week, and great way to use up those leftover HSTs in the bag

  6. Love the retro flowers, what are your plans for them? And the colour wheel- great!

  7. Oh I just love the brown as the background on your color wheel quilt! I am just dying to get started on this pattern. I'd go for some sort of all over stipple...or loops? whatever you decide will be fabulous I'm sure :-) Great Retro Flowers blocks, love that blue!

  8. Your zakka tote is so cool! I love that color wheel too.

  9. That DQS quilt is adorable! I love the stitched flying geese in the centre. Great colour wheel, Michelle. Maybe a spiral outwards for the quilting? Like this - http://cadouri-din-inima.blogspot.ca/2012/04/rainbow-quilt-finished.html. Good luck and can't wait to see what you do with it.

  10. Those Zakka projects are so cute!!(I scrolled down and saw the house pouch too!). You have a ton of projects on the go, love the fabrics you chose for the color wheel quilt. Sorry, no idea on how to quilt it, I only know how to do straight lines!!!

  11. Everything looks fabulous!! I would probably do organic diagonal lines through the petals, but that's just me. It's adorable any way you decide to quilt it.

  12. Everything look great. I was also going to say a sprial like the commenter above or I always fall back on diagonal lines. I'll look forward to seeing what you decide.

  13. Great projects. Love tyour mini quilt.The color whell quilt is my favorite though.

  14. You've got some really great pieces. I saw you at WIP and I'm your newest follower.


  15. Another useful tote - I really like this one.
