work in progress wednesday

I'm linking up with freshly pieced in hopes that I start showing more of what I am working on.  It seems that lately I only get the finished product up here.  I started cutting out these little squares last week (they are 2 inches each), and sewed them together into one big block. 
I am a sucker for cute little prints (can you tell??).

on another note, does anyone out there have the HQ Sweet Sixteen Quilter?  Do you like it?  Pros, cons??  I have a friend looking into buying one.  Do you recommend it?

and some exciting news for denver locals, a new quilt shop opening tomorrow!  Snappy Quilts (in South Denver, located on the corner of Orchard and University).  It's a good one, I've been inside and it's awesome.  You will not be disappointed.  I'm even lucky enough to get to work a few hours a month, so drop in and say hello!

I love your selection of cute and kitschy prints. There is almost nothing more satisfying than lots of little squares, but lots of little squares of cute prints is even better!

Great news about the quilt shop in Denver. I live in CA, but visit family in Aurora on a regular basis, and since visiting quilt shops is an addictive hobby of mine, the GAQF on Hampden was all I found to visit. Too bad I was just there.

jennifer said...

Love it! I have been itching to get at some of my quilts-in-progress (have been obsessed with knitting for a few months) and I just might start in tomorrow! Darling, darling little prints!

I would love each adorable square to make an I Spy quilt.

Terra said...

Insanely cute.

Deborah said...

I've been collecting sweet little prints of a certain scale for 10 years. I haven't cut any of them waiting for some inspiration. Thank you :) Time to start cutting.

Kris said...

I love these prints. This is going to be very cute!

Heather said...

OOOOOhhh... Nettie! you have made my mania for fussy-cut postage stamp quilts flare again! What am i to do!!!! it's so friggin cute! ;)

Lisa said...

I have the HQ 16 (don't know difference with sweet 16), but I love it. Only suggestion I have is don't waste your money on the stitch regulator. It sometimes acts up, and it's not even been used that much. With a little practice you can do amazing things without it, if that helps at all.
Cute sewing, by the way! =)

SewSara said...

love!!!
i wish i could get my hands on all those prints for my hexagons! :)

Melissa said...

Be still my heart! That's adorable!

I'll have to map out the quilt shop and see if it's too far from 1-70. We stop at REI on the way through Denver to the mountains. Maybe I could persuade DH to take another small detour :)

Kerri said...

oh, my!! this is sooo cute, i LOVE it!! i need to start one!! :)

Erica said...

This is so adorable! I love it!

webmailaddress2 said...

That looks so cute!

amy smart said...

I LOVE this.

So fun to work at a quilt shop too! Yay! I wish I could drop by myself.

suburban homestead said...

so cute! I've always wanted to do this with a STACK of Maharam swatches I had from back in upholstery days. They have generous cuts (8" x 4") and the quality is wonderful, of course. But wool wouldn't make the best quilt. :(

Bonny said...

I love your prints:) Can't wait to see the finished product.

Pippa said...

So cute!!

Micki said...

I love all of the fabrics that you used!

meli B said...

Yep, I'm a sucker too for the cute prints.

Nini said...

Cute little quilt, I can tell we like the same kinds of fabric. Also great news about the new quilt shop, can't wait to see it next time I'm in Denver!

hydeeann @ splish splash stash said...

what a lot of tiny squares!

question: is it okay to copy and post a picture of one of your quilts if i'm featuring it (with a link) as inspiration on my blog? just checking!

nettie said...

hi hydeeann @ splish splash stash, yes, please post a pic, and thanks for asking.
