A finish and a WiP all in one.

I finished the main body of my Atlantis Quilt (pattern by Southwind Designs).  However, I want this for my queen bed so am making a pattern for the sides and foot of the bed. 

Here is the main body with inner border attached not attached.

Here is a panel for the inner border.  Top one is peeled back bottom one isn't yet.  Peeling back gives it that lovely curved look.

The above is as far as the pattern takes me (after attaching the inner border that is).

This is my pattern for the sides  There will be 4 panels (the picture shows 2 of them joined) for each side and 3 panels for the foot of the bed.  The corners will be solid blue with possibly an applique on it haven't decided yet.  The side panels have not been peeled back yet.

Works in Progress

Well per usual I have several projects on the go.

1.  Working on block 6 of Witches in Stitches "Boo-tique"

2.  Haven't touched my Simply Radiant Quilt for a few weeks now.  Other things seem to pop up and take priority.

3.  Have been slowly working on more wall hangings from "Be Attitudes"

4.  Primary focus has been the Atlantis Quilt from Southwind Designs.  Got all 12 blocks done and peeled back.  Corner blocks are pieced but not peeled back.  Rest of the border is about half way done.  After I get this all put together will figure out (design) another border to make it fit my queen size bed.  Am thinking of coral done in the same style with a few applique fish.

Well I still am working on

1.  Witches in Stitches "Boo-tique"
2.   Paper Pieced Quilt - Simply Radiant

Recently started my Atlantis Quilt.

Block 1 is finished; notice the peeled back edges which give it those gorgeous curves.

Blocks 2 - 7 are pieced but not peeled back yet.  Am going to do all 12 blocks then peel them back and do the top stitching at the end before stitching them together.

Is a fun quilt to piece.  Just need to pay attention and go step by step.
