WIP - Daydreamin'

Our Memorial weekend trip was lovely!  Had a great time and I do hope to get back into my morning sewing routine here soon.  However, last week I had some definite issues with my long arm sewing machine and it was out of commission until tonight when the parts arrived.  With the help of my DH, she (yes, she) is up and running again.   This week, another one of my babies developed bobbin issues.  So a 3 1/2 hour one way trip I will be making to the dealer on Friday.  Did I mention the dealer has a 10,000 square foot fabric store, too?  Oh yeah, baby!  Um hum!  Some shopping will be done!

This WIP is an idea I had for a block that can be made with charm squares, some solids and (Bella Porcelain) background.  The main fabric is Daydream by Kate Spain.  Oh, I do love me some Kate Spain!   Here are the blocks that I have done so far...

Look at those colors!  So vibrant!  And yes, I really have been making 1/2 square triangles out of the scraps to use as a border.  I don't like to waste beautiful fabric, especially Kate Spain beautiful fabric!

A picture of the first block I made.  I might make some changes and play around with a bigger size, but this is the idea.  I have vowed to get this quilt top done before I start cutting into #mynextquilt.

Linking up now with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!


  1. These fabrics are fabulous! And I love your design. Great job!

  2. Oh, this is going to be great! So cheerful and happy. And Kate Spain!!! I don't blame you for the HSTs at all - I would do the same thing.

  3. Oh, my goodness! I didn't notice the mini star points in the center right away, but they are charming. They must me tiny! What gorgeous colours.
