Design wall/bed

I'm been doing some sewing, and I have 1 square of the last 2 Wild Women quilts! 

This is the "Pink Lemonade" quilt that was on a PBS Eleanor Burns show.  You can see her show on this here:Eleanor Burns PBS

 I have to say I'm really happy that it was on PBS, because I was under the impression that the 2 flying geese were the same color. and they are not!!!! they are different to make the chevrons! I really think they make it stand out more.

There are a lot of parts, but those 4 squares and Chevron's are 6.5"

Sew, While I  am Leader ending the 4 squares, and the flying geese for  the PINK LEMONADE, I'm assembling this quilt for my DD's wedding.
She was actually married on July 6th,13 but I told her I needed one yr to get it together. Especially w my new quilting machine, I wanted some experience w it first!

Jo at Country Junction has been making the same one too... it was a UFO as it is at my house! LOL
Hers is scrappy  but I had this Kaffee Fasset fabric for years. At that time I wasn't into scrappy, I wanted it to be organised.

 I liked her idea of corner stones which is not on the original scrappy design. I dug around and found my center fabric. Yeah there was enough to make all of the cornerstones! you can see hers here :Jo's Country Junction
On the unfinished areas on my spare 'design' bed the corner stones really make it pop! The one problem I have with this quilt is they are now moving and will be getting a king sized bed. there is no way this will ever be a king sized quilt, as it would need 64 more blocks. I don't have enough of the fabric to do that. I might get 1 or 2 more rows but not that many. It very possible that this will never leave my home, and I will make her a new one.

 <<< border fabric for DD's quilt. I hope I have enough fabric as I bought this about 12 yrs ago!

I've finished all of the 4 patches for the last 2 quilts. and now am assembling the Chevrons out of two of the Flying geese.

 ready to quilt quilts for the Wild Women.
