Berties ladder

I decided to call this top Berties Ladder, as it is made from most of the scraps from Berties Year.  There are still some left over pieces, but I think these will be incorporated into the backing.  I went with a mixed border of 2 ½ inch squares and HSTs, its busy, but I like it.  The colors of the flannels are a bit more subdued in “real life”, I took the picture outside, hoping the natural light would help, but the fabrics aren’t really that bright.

I finished the appliqué on the Small World top.  Some of my favorite pieces are here.

I didn’t have the heart to round off my hexagons (36 of them) so I left them as a hill.

My favorite, a tiny treasure chest complete with pirate parrot.

I also completed the Rock Candy quilt, sans binding.  I was going for a fractional/prismatic look with the quilting lines.  I think they may show up better after washing.

This week I’m starting the quilting of my Moda Building blocks top.  I made it earlier this year and using my Cherrywood fabric collection.

Linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for “Can I get a Whoop Whoop” today.
