W.I.P.#2 for me

Today I have several works in progress.I decided to make 1 block of the Supernova,and ended up making all 9.Lee at freshlypieced is hosting W.I.P's and I have seen alot of nice projects.I have also confirmed I am not the only one with alot of things in different stages.
Once I get the borders on my supernova,I can get it quilted and send off to my granddaughter.I used alot of pastels and easter prints.

Ya know those little snippets of fabric you get when you square up?, well I just can not part with them, some I use for stuffing doggie beds.The others I am sewing down using the ticker tape method.
I am not quilting this as I go. I had 10 inch squares left over from my cathedral windows,and thought..Why not? This will be my quilt journal of projects I have made, right now I am doing my red and aqua,which are being used in several different projects.
There are quite a few quilters doing the 3x6 Sampler Quilt Mini Bee
I am in a beehive,,GEESH I have never belonged to a bee before,it is exciting.I know,it does not take much to entertain me.I have picked orange,aqua and white as my colors I would like to receive.I am so excited to see what they pick for me. I am having fun with the fabric selections for them.Now finding the perfect block is not as easy.Please, someone tell me,am I the only one that sees something, then tries to do and it just does not look as good? DANG! I tried several different blocks,and they just did not look as good as they did on the screen..so I am going with a log cabin style block.
I have done my block with more white and love the way the color jumps out.
Please stop over and see what else is going on at freshlypieced
Thank you for visiting,Amy

Hello! Your quilt is going to be wonderful! I love also that Lee's pattern! Also your work with left overs is adorable - somehow I just love the small patches!
Thank you for your sweet comment! Teje

Oh your supernova is so springy and fun!
I'm doing the 3x6 for the first time too and struggling with finding a block. At least you've tried some. I've just found about a half dozen blocks I like and keep staring at them. haha!

Easter Supernova, what a great idea! I also like your quilt journal idea, I may try to do something like that for me.

I love the white in the log cabin too! It just makes the whole block look so modern.

Happy Quilting!

Your Supernova quilt looks great Amy, bring it with you so I can see in person. I like your little ticker tape quilt your working on and the log cabin block is super duper. I like how the colors pop out too.
