#SewSweetSimplicity BOM WIP Wednesday

Here's the first block for the Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM.  I tried to stay close to the suggested colors to make the selections easy.

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday. 

I only have one other WIP going on right now, the Vintage Holiday QA.  I need to work on finishing that one by Christmas.

Growing Up Odd Quilt Finish

This week I finished my Growing Up Odd quilt.  You can find the tutorial at one of my favorite scrap quilt tutorial sites -- Wedding Dress Blue.  This quilt is California twin sized.  My niece longarm quilted it with BRIGHT ORANGE thread!!!  I was worried at first, but it reminds me of jeans from the 80's.  It was quilted with the Egyptian Eye pattern.

The back was a stash buster for all those novelty fabrics that my great nephew likes.  He helped pick them from our stashes.

Sew Sweet Simplicity

Exploring options to what to start next.  I know I will be doing one quilt either from Wedding Dress Blues or Bonnie Hunter.  Not sure which one matches my ugly scraps yet.

I'm also considering starting a BOM project like this one:

Growing Up Odd -- A Scrappy Finish

I finally finished my Growing Up Odd quilt that I had been working on for a while.  I have already given it to my great nephew.  It's already on his bed.  I hope to get better pictures of it soon.  Today's the last day to enter the Scrap Challenge Quilt 4.  I got this quick picture.
