Skittles Explosion

182 blocks on the wall, 182 blocks 
take one down, stitch it down
181 blocks on the wall
Good Morning Quilty Friends!  Welcome to my messy Studio.  It looks like a truckload of Skittles exploded here in Podunk.  I've been working on two different projects over the weekend, the Hummingbird quilt and the Lori Holt tulip quilt.  For those of you that are new to my blog, Lori Holt designed the single tulip block for her Quilty Fun book.  I took that single tulip block and designed a 4 crossing tulips block and the rest of the quilt.  
 I've been bouncing back and forth between the two quilts.  The Hummingbird is coming together really fast, just chaining along...and singing.
But remember when I started quilting the Tulip quilt months ago.  Well I ran into a issue.  The blocks on this quilt are larger than the space I can quilt on my frame.   I've done this several times without premarking and had no issues.  Long story short the quilt had to be taken off the frame and premarked.  Which meant I lost interest and moved on to less frustrating projects.  Well I'm back in the groove and hope to have it back on the frame by bedtime today.  Wish me luck, I'm really excited to have this one back on the project list, it's such a fun and colorful quilt.
So what are you working on that excites you this morning?  Anything that you'd care to share at Judy's Design Wall Monday?  Hop on over and link it up!
Let's add another linky party  WIP Wednesday@freshlypieced

  1. Lovely work! Can you please tell me what pattern you're working on, the one one the machine in your photo. Your work reminds me of the work of Rita at Red Pepper Quilts.
