DWM

No finishes this week but a couple of things on the design wall. First up is the shirting QSTs.  I wasn't crazy about them before and added four triangle all the way around to call them down a bit.  Still not crazy about them, but will definitely finish it for H2H.

Next is the truck quilt just got started, I had a little helper this weekend.   He approved every fabric in his quilt and helped turn the crank on the accuquilt for the wheels and stoplight.  He also at the sewing machine and pretended to make pizza, hmmmm who doesn't do that from time to time.  After sewing we had some cake


No sewing on Sunday, we had a big graduation.  Daughter #4 graduated from college.  Big day for her.  She has a conference that she presents at in Chicago then end of June then a fellowship at NIH and off to DC she goes before starting graduate school. 

Check out the linky parties on the side bar.  The Bloggers Quilt Festival is going on too, lots of inspiration there.

  1. Love the truck quilt. I did one for my son many years ago. Congrats to your daughter. BTW -- I like the shirts quilt. It is subtle and someone is going to love it especially after you are done with your quilting magic.

  4. Isn't it great how much fun it is to have your little sweetie helping you sew? Those Accuquilts sure attract children. That truck quilt is great!
    I love the shirting quilt too - the way the colors look so subtle and shaded really appeals to me.
    Hooray for your daughter and best wishes with the exciting things she has planned!

  5. Your QST look really pretty with the other triangles. I'm sure once you work your quilting magic that it will really sing. And I loved the story of your quilt critic. I can totally see why he approved of every fabric.

  8. Congratulations to daughter number 4! The truck quilt looks great. He'll like it even more since he got to help with it. Your QST quilt is very pretty. Love the soft colors in it. I think it would be perfect for a guy, it's so hard to come up with quilts that work for them.
