WIP Wednesday - Habitat Quilt Top


[Sorry about the sunlight splattering my photos... bad location for a photo shoot? Hmmm yeah.)

Here's my only quilt WIP I have going on at the moment. Its only halfway put together, so it should end up being twice this size! I'm thinking lap size.
You can read a little more about it here. The solid is Kona Cotton in Aqua, and the prints are
HABITAT by Jaye McCarroll... and I plan to have the entire thing DONE by mid-September for the Modern Quilt Guild Challenge.

I spotted a little critter stealing tomatoes from the garden. Its so difficult to get rid of those little buggers!

Once its finished, it'll sit for a few months before its gifted to a special someone for Christmas.
Its only the end of August and I already feel behind in my Christmas gift sewing! What is wrong with me?
Oh yeah, I have a modern craft show on Nov 6th and I'm freaking out that I won't have enough inventory ready! So I've been more focused on that lately...

I've admired this quilt design for a while now, and again, thought I'd try it out, although a slightly different layout ... so far I love it, and is super easy to work up. Very little measuring required, just up my alley!


I've linked up with Freshly Pieced for her WIP Wednesday series! Go check it out!

And I have to sneak in a photo of Eli, for any family that stumbles upon this post!

It looks awesome! I haven't finished mine yet but I'm doubting my design.

Your quilt looks great so far! I have been wanting to make a quilt similar to that, too. Looks like a fun, easy pattern.

Oh I do love Jay's line. I used to watch him on Project Runway. It's so cool that he designs for us now :-) Your quilt looks awesome by the way!

You can keep those tomato-stealing critters in check with a spray bottle of water ;-)
