A whole lot of WIP's

So far I have managed to finish 3 of the 5 quilt tops I've been working on these past few months. If you follow me on Instagram @ibecheraldine you would have seen the progress....been bored to tears with pictures and laughed (possibly) at the shear randomness. I've also managed to catch some destashes and gotten myself some good fabric scores!! I subscribed to the Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine!!

So here are some pictures of the progress so far

The Berry Triangle Quilt top is now completed. I added one more row to the bottom/top as it was a little too short before. I’ve also got a backing fabric for it too. I’m using a duvet cover as you get soo much more fabric...I’m keeping the pillow cases for myself.....

The backing was bought on sale.. It's also reversible so I can use the other side for another quilt in the future. I’m still deciding whether or not to bind this quilt...I really can’t be bothered to make any.... Maybe I should just buy it ready made so all I have to do is sew it on.....




The Citrus Quilt top is also complete...It came out much larger than I expected...No need for extra rows here! Again I may buy some binding to around it...or I'll go with the pillow case method and quilt it.... The backing was also bought on sale! Took me ages to find something I liked enough.....



The Orange, Grey and Blue quilt top also complete. Once again not sure whether to bind or not...any volunteers to make a whole load for me? I'll send you the fabric!
The backing duvet cover lol! Caught my eye.....was also on sale and I thought would be different from what I'd normally go for.






With me being me and believing too many projects can never be enough I pulled out some more fabrics....But not just any fabrics.....
These are fabrics from Pat Bravo-Indie, Rock and Romance..... And Joel Dewberry-Notting Hill
I knew I wanted to make a HST quilt and these fabrics sung to me! The quilt backing sung to me also and was purchased when I found the backing for the Citrus quilt.





Then I went back to my purge fabrics as I need more projects on the go!! I've been flicking through my issues of Love Patchwork and Quilting for inspiration and have a few dozen ideas... So far............I've cut off the selvedges.....


















Watch this space!
