Start, Finish, Repeat

I started a new project today, but then again, I finished one as well, so I'm holding steady in my number of ongoing projects.

( I am linking up with the TGIFF group today!  If you're visiting from there, welcome, if you want to check out what lots of others have been finishing up this week, press here, TGIFF

I am so loving the new Salt Water fabric collection by Tula Pink for Westminster Fabrics.  There's just something about the color combination that I am drawn to right now:
 coral, pale grey, lime green, turquoise, teal,
Yes, they really are the colors of the sea,
 this is the start of a new quilt I am sewing,
 but if you are interested in other quilts using this collection, you must see the five free downloads that are available!
i don't know which one I like most...
 Color Blocks

Anchors Aweigh:  
Tranquil Waters:

 In addition to the free patterns, there is a kit for the Salt Water Hexie quilt:
(we have several of the kits in stock, they have 1008 pre-cut fabric hexagons, paper pieces, and the pattern)

And I finished sewing the binding on to this quilt,
 It is a Yellow Brick Road pattern, with some large fussy cut pieces of fabric blended in with the pieced blocks. 
And finally, this is the current state of my Color-blocked Chevron strip quilt,


  1. I love the colors of your chevron quilt!!

  2. those shells are GORGEOUS! And yes - I dig that chevron quilt. : )

  3. Thanks, I'm wondering about adding another border to it,

  4. Your sea shells go perfectly with the new Tula Pink fabrics! That's really neat. Might have to check out the hexie kit too! Your chevron quilt is looking lovely. Another border would look very nice!

  5. I, too, have been bitten by the Salt Water bug. I bought the kit to make the Color Block quilt and it's sitting right here waiting for me to get started! SQUEEEALLL!

    I'm loving your tonal braids. Beautiful. Such a lovely use of that fabric line. Collete, right? I won a couple of charm packs of it that I've been playing with and have decided to make stars with them for a baby quilt.
