WIP Wednesday Rapid City Quilt

I am pleased to share the finished top to the Rapid City Quilt  I started last month.  It's mostly blue as requested by my husband.  He really loved it when I showed him.  No surprises around here but only because I needed his help to baste it.  Since then it has sat on the dinng table looking at me and it even says 'quilt me!'.  I am hoping to finish it for our 2nd wedding anniversary but I may be pushing it since it's only a week away.

I used Elizabeth Hartman's pattern which you can find in her book Modern Patchwork.

I got started on a new yard sale wrap skirt,  I really love how easy these are to wear and with holidays not to far away I thought another one was in order.  You can see the last one here.

And lastly I did a sewing class at Sew This & That on how to make a Dresden plate.  We created our template from scratch with graph paper and template plastic.  I decided to try the pointed Dresden (i't seemed easier) to start off but have the template for a rounded one ready to go.  I am planning on make them into a mini quilt although they'd make cute cushion covers as well.

I am linking to WIP Wednesday and Fabric Tuesday.

  1. I love your Rapid City quilt! You chose beautiful colors! That is a great gift for your hubby. Happy Anniversary!

  2. I LOVE YOUR RAPID CITY QUILT. It reminds me of R2D2 for some reason.

  3. Your Rapid City quilt is amazing. I love the colours and the boldness of it. I am also with kat129 that it has overtones of R2D2 to it, which is always a good thing.

  4. I love your Dresden! I think Dresdens are so fun. I was so scared of them before I made one, and now I just love them.

  5. I love your rapid city quilt! The colours are fantastic! I am glad we met tonight, I think I will like following your blog!

  6. Love both the Dresden and the quilt, but those fabrics in the plate are amazing!
