WIP: Purples and Greens

I finished the Spring Violets top, and I love it.

I made a back for it using a beautiful batik, and pieced in a spare block and some scraps.

Still need to piece the batting, and then I will be ready to spray baste and quilt.  I hope to do that today. I have help.

While going through the purple and green baskets, I challenged myself to make something nice from three real Stashdogs.

And I think I did.  I put the top together this morning and its pretty.  I completely used all three fabrics, needing to add a few scraps and do some creative piecing, but I made it work.   What’s your favorite way to quilt Courthouse Steps?  This is girly, so I’m thinking of lof a big flower of some kind in the middle of each block.  I’m open to suggestions…

Are you making sewing progress, or just enjoying the holiday?  I’m just cooking for the three of us, so things are very low key here.  For the first time, I’ll be home to participate in the Black Friday Sew In on Twitter.  #BFSI  Hope to see you there!

I’m linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
