WiP - mini disco


As I waited for my machine Brother to return I cut up some stripes as a background for my mini disco project. I decided to sprinkle few triangles on both sides. What started as testing the ruler on Mini Disco pattern by Jaybird quilts turned into something bigger.


But how can you say NO to rainbow happiness?
Brother came home yesterday so I started the piecing process questioning my own sanity. It is shrinking as I'm sewing the bits and pieces together. Once I have all the stripes it'll shrink even more. I would love to finish in time for Jaybird quilts SAL link up but we'll see.


Today is also second round of New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop @ Plum and June.

Plum and June

I wanted to give you some more as my introduction picture was not the only one we took that day. I was also playing Superman with a quilt as my cape. Well, I got a bit caught up while flying in canola field.


I'm off to check what tips and tricks others share today:


Linking up with WiP Wednesday and Lets Bee Social.

  10. What an amazing WIP! The colours drew me to your post from the WIP Wednesday Link Up. I've resisted the temptation to buy another ruler from JayBird as I haven't yet finished my first project with the Hex n' More. But your creativity is sorely tempting me towards that mini ruler!

    HAHA LOVE the picture of SUPERVERA!
