First completed top!

That's right the gift quilt is now a completed top!
I also got the back made, and last night laid it on the floor and put tons and tons of pins in it to prepare for quilting(I don't have the confidence, or walking foot, to quilt it myself so my beautiful wife is doing it)

Here are a couple of pics to show the progress.

Lots of basting

My next project is another gift...I really like the pattern I chose, and I can't wait to see it come together...

More later!

Current wip

Here is the quilt I am currently working on the blocks are made from various scraps cut using the template from my wife's fan quilt. I then pieced these together in six piece blocks and once they were sewed and ironed, cut them down to my block size.
The empty space in the middle will contain a special block that i can't reveal until after Christmas, as I don't want to ruin the suprise.
I'm not quite sure what I am thinking by giving my very first quilt as a gift, but hopefully he likes it anyway.

The pixel project is still calling my name, but it will probably remain on the back burner until after the holidays as i have another gift after this one.
