Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

I've been working on a few things this week, managing to fit a bit of time at the sewing machine most evenings.  It has meant that I have made progress on my Wave Runner WIP
 - in fact I am actually working on quilting the borders -

FMQ border
modified Piano key border, only 2 and a half sides to go!

yay!  the end is near!

And, just because I still have fabric lying all over and I got distracted, I grabbed a couple of Candy Bars of Bonnie & Camille's Bliss and had some fun.



or pink

Which do you think I should use for the background - the aqua or the pink?
(edit - my inspiration and starting point for this block can be found here which uses Bonnie Hunter's String-X block as a starting point.  I choose to just use the Candy bar to piece the centre strips)

and, because I got the day right this week, I'm going to link up to

 WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Happy quilting!

Gorgeous! I love how the Wave Runner quilt is shaping up, and I'm looking forward to seeing it when it's finished!

The wave runner quilt does look great- your quilting is always drop dead gorgeous! As for the background, what about a taupe or chocolate? I think that might make the other colors really sing. Just a thought!

Lovely to see Wave Runner almost finished. I prefer the aqua background but probably I'm not a huge fan of too much pink.

Barb said...

I like the aqua background, but the pink is less expected. I do like the previous commenters idea of chocolate too.

Peg said...

I stand amazed at your quilting skill! I would go with the aqua, but that's just because I'm not a pink person, so maybe not the best to be commenting.

It looks like aqua by a landslide! ;);)

I like the aqua too, but like the others I'm not a very big fan of pink :D It's not that it looks bad on pink, I just look at it and think how I wouldn't want that much pink. (So really: I think you should do what you like best!)

Ok, I gotta go with the aqua. I like pink but I just love aqua!!!

The aqua background looks better. And your quilt has not only great colours, but interesting piecing too!
