WIP Wednesday

I've been quite busy even if I haven't been linking up just lately. Catching up with bee blocks has been one thing on my list.

This Rolling Diamond block was made for Debbie last month but I forgot to get it posted. Guess that's what happens when you wait till the end of the month to get bee blocks done. Our Mid Century Modern Bee uses stash fabric so we don't need to mail fabric back and forth. Debbie asked for brights and that's never a problem in my stash. Lots of brights to choose from.

I also finished up a couple of blocks for our Boulder Modern Quilt Guild Bee. Kati asked for Broken Herringbone blocks using the fabrics she provided in these lovely shades of yellow, blues and gray.

I also finished up a cheery yellow block of hearts that's part of a special baby quilt. Our guild is newish and we've just had the pleasure of one of our members having a baby. I don't think she reads here so I hope I'm safe in sharing the block I contributed. We each made hearts in a different color. Can't wait to see them all together.

My real WIP of the week is this colorful pile of solids. I'm getting started on my Boulder Modern Quilt Guild challenge quilt. More to come later on this project, but for now here's what I'll be working with. Wish me luck in getting it done amidst all the other things I have to do right now.

Do you think I have enough colors?  50 plus at the moment and I'm actually not sure if there's enough variety for what I have planned. Finding more is hard at local shops though.

I'm curious what make of solids you prefer? Do you have a color card? I mostly use Kona because I have their color card and can get most of them from, a local online shop where I am able to pick up my orders.  I'd love to have cards from all the other manufacturers too. Maybe someday. Wouldn't it be fun to have a real brick and mortar shop full of every color from every manufacturer? Every shade of every color available all lined up together . . . love the image this conjures up.
