A WIP Wednesday with a finish!

Grandma's Peacock is finished. Unfortunately, this is the only picture I have. I love the quilting pattern that Dee drew for me, and need to get some better pictures for you all. I am currently interviewing brick-a-brack for the shelf, so I am aware that it doesn't look altogether together! I am pondering what I might own already that is in storage that would spiff things up.

Quilting in progress on this + & x table quilt. I finally settled on the quilting plan, and I am loving it.

Sitting on top is a small pile of wonderful from The Intrepid Thread. Pat Bravo's Poetica line, plus a few extras added on. The service was great, and I am very pleased with the fat quarters she added in to round out the stack. The pale yellow is going to be the background. I bought it from Connecting Threads. They call it Custard, and at around $2.50 a yard right now the price was amazing. Not all of the solids were on sale, but I was blessed that this one was, and it matches perfectly! I ordered custard thread too, so I am ready to soon as I get some other WIPs out of the way. The selfish quilt must wait.

No other progress.
