WIP Wednesday - I Wish I May

"Interest is never enough. If it doesn’t haunt you, you’ll never write it well. What haunts and obsesses you into writing may, with luck and labour, interest your readers. What merely interests you is sure to bore them. " - Steven Heighton

I have been trying to figure out lately what interests me. I have gotten a lot of my UFOs done lately and some that are left need touches here or there or are waiting for the right fabric to meet them. Maybe there should be a fabric dating site! Anyhow, I was in a bit of a quandary with what to do and my dh mentioned that it would be nice to have a spring quilt for our king sized bed. I had gotten fabric for it years ago, but with babies being born, and kids growing older I had never gotten around to making it. I also had a double sized bed quilt that I had gotten for my son years ago that had very similar colours. I realized that if I put them together they would make a great quilt. 

The pattern is I Wish I May by Border Creek Station. I saw this made years ago in pinks and browns, and I knew I wanted to make it some day. 

Here is my tiny little start. I love Log Cabin Quilts and I am excited to be finally making one for myself!

Linking up to The Needle and Thread Network and to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

This looks like it's going to be a really pretty quilt! I can't wait to see your progress on it! :0)

That definitely says spring quilt. I like the colour selection you made and look forward to watching your progress.

Glad to see you'll be wrapping spring around you! :)

Lovely colours! Isn't it often that the quilter has no or just a crappy quilt on her own bed?

I'm a sucker for a log cabin. Can't wait to see more of yours!
