A new-to-me designer, and some WIP's

Before I get to my works in progress this week, I wanted to let everyone know about a quilt pattern designer that I just found out about via Toni's quilt festival post.  I'd like to direct you to for the love designs ~ Lu has a wonderful pattern collection with fun and unique designs, and as far as I can tell, for the most part her patterns are beginner, and pre-cut, friendly.  I couldn't resist, and purchased "Frankie", "Nina", and "Brody"P.S.  Lu is offering her full collection of patterns for Giveaway Day, go here to enter until Friday May 25/12.  {all photos used with permission}




Alright, now on to my W.I.P's this week.  I have one finish since last week; my Fast Forward quilt.  It had been a completed top for quite some time now so it feels good to cross it off to list.


I started a new project today as well, in fact it is the Frankie quilt pattern shown above.  I'm using these lovely almost FQ's that I won on Jess' blog a little while back, and will need to supplement with a few solids or see if I can find some coordinating prints as I don't have quite enough fabric.  I spent a lot of time cutting today while my youngest guy was home sick, and a little bit of time sewing this evening.


I still have two tops waiting to be quilted ~ the Pure strip tube quilt, and the scrappy postage stamp quilt.  No progress on either this week.  In addition to those, my Sweetwater Reunion cushion covers are still not finished because my backing fabric is taking its time getting here!

Have a great rest of the week everyone!
