wip wednesday

this is what is my ny beauty blocks are turning into

i worked on it last weekend. i had the blocks done and they were just sitting there.  i haven't been inspired to make any more of the blocks (maybe in the future) i decided to make a pillow


basted....

quilted...

half bound... 
i had a little problem getting the two ends to meet.  i tried using this method from jaybird quilts but it didn't work out so well. she makes it seem easy and it really wasn't. so i fudged a little and i think it will work. now i just have to hand sew the binding to the back. not really my favorite part.
i worked on other things as well...i cut the strips for the groove quilt. i'm linking up with freshly pieced.

happy sewing
