WIP Wednesday #28

I'm linking this post up to WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.

I'm currenly working on quite a few things, but I wanted to share a specific one today - this is a quilt that will be sent to my husband's grandmother. She is in her 80's and in poor health, so I thought a quilt made from this cheery, springy fabric collection would give her something happy to enjoy. It is just a simple patchwork layout, I went with this for a few reasons: (1) I love this fabric and wanted it to really shine, (2) I really like the look, and (3) I need to finish this quilt ASAP, as Grandma Lilliane lives in Switzerland and shipping packages there often takes quite some time!

I finished up the quit top this morning, so now all that's left is to piece the backing, layer, quilt (I'm thinking a simple cross-hatching through the patchwork), bind, wash, and ship! Well... in a list that sounds like a lot! I am glad to at least have the top done, though!!

Have fun checking out all the other projects in progress at Freshly Pieced!

Happy WIP Wednesday!
