WIP Wednesday

There is not too much to share this week.  I have recently started back to work so I do not have quite the free time that I did before.  It's good to be working again, but it's sad that I don't get to hang out with my little buddy all the time anymore.

I made my third Celestial Star Quilt block.  This is the worst job I've done making one, so I'm hoping that once I get it attached and take the paper out that will help.  I'm still very happy with it, it just turned out a bit lumpy and bubbles in a couple spots.  I ran out of grey so I'll be going again once that arrives.


I also made another ribbon star block and corresponding irish chain block.  These are the blocks I picked for my month in my quilting bee.  Although I love the pearl bracelets fabric line, I wish I had stuck with a navy that had less white in it.  Oh well, still works, and I'm definitely not redoing/not using these!


This Sunday my little bean is 1!!  Can't believe it.  Well, I guess I can.

Celestial Star QAL

Well, I'm getting there bit by bit, block two for the quilt is complete!

Celestial Star QAL

I'm loving the many designs possible with this quilt block!  However, I think that I prefer my block that I made last time.  However, I'm still a big fan of this one.  I am thinking of doing 5 star blocks and then 4 setting blocks to finish the quilt.  

In other news, tomorrow is my first day back at work--not really too excited about the prospect.  Deep breaths.

Here is the first block for comparison.  I think the second one reads a lot more yellow while this one reads more aqua.  I will have to see if I can play with that a bit in future blocks.

If there is a WIP Wednesday this week I will be linking up.  

Hope everyone's summer is going great!
