Ping has arrived!

On Saturday evening I walked in to see a package from Pinwheels... Not one to let the grass grow...
ping quilt unit I pieced 1/2 of the ping unit, I pieced the second half on Sunday, this is a whole unit.
(I think it is a Dresden Plate or Chrysanthemum - at any rate Ping is shorter... I now need to either piece the backgrounds: lights each one is a scrappy 4 patch, but as you might be able to see here, they sent a WOF strip in a selection of backgrounds...

And then I need to piece the mediums that create the secondary design. mediums

The other ping fabrics are here: blades

All together: Ping quilt I pieced them as they came and added them in order without thinking about the placement. (Based upon the fact that I do not use a design wall, this is probably "ver me.")

One final shot is my sewing kit ready for me to pick up and go! kit The ping fabrics and papers fit perfectly in my recycled pencil box...

The finished quilt can be seen & purchased at Pinwheels.

What a beautiful block, and a lovely set of fabric. Are you handsewing them?

I'm jealous! I'll pick up Ping when I'm in Pinwheels on the 20th. Try not to finish before I can start, ok?

The quilts on my blog were pieced by a customer and quilted by me. If I make it to the reception at the end of the month, I'll try and take pics of all the cat fabrics (I think every quilt there had cat fabrics in it).

Gorgeous colors and wonderful design, this quilt looks quite compelling. I'm impressed by your "piecing-on-the-go" kit; at the ready!

It looks like a fantastic, and if I'm not mistaken, a quite addictive project. I love the colours. I can't wait to see it coming together. I.will.resist.starting.another.quilt.

It's gonna be a lot of fun.

Fiona said...

The Ping pattern and colours are looking very good - I smiled when I saw your pencil case - I keep scissors, needle case and thread in one in my living room. (Okay, there's also pens, an eraser, crochet hooks,few odd buttons, couple of sweets etc. etc. in there as well - it's multi-purpose)

Nancy said...

Those colors are lovely together. And yes they do remind me of your cats. LOL!

May Britt said...

Oh....I love this "Ping" Wish I could do it too, but I have never ordered kits from abroad before. The colours are so beautiful. Please post every Ping you make.
How big are the templates. Perhaps I could make a Ping of my fabrics :)

Oh, that is going to be a lovely quilt - and you are off to such a good start! Having a sewing kit ready to go at all times - well, little minutes sure do add up over time so that is a good idea.

Cheers!

Oh, Amy, that's going to be a beautiful project. I love the first block. Enjoy, enjoy!

Beth said...

First, it's great! I love hand pieced projects. But why do they call it "Ping". It looks like Dresden plate to me. Is that just another name for it?

Meredith said...

I love your chocie of fabrics. I will check back to see how you progress with the blocks.

Quilting Kim said...

The PING quilt is gorgeous. I love the colors. Are you hand piecing the plates?

Feeling Simply Quilty said...

That's a beautiful quilt. I've got to use up what I've started before I begin something new, but, if I was in the buying mode, I'd put that one on my list.
Are they Japanese fabrics? I saw a whole collection that was gray/blue and taupe, very soft...like your cats.

Hanne said...

What a beautiful quilt this will be. I am looking forward to follow your progress!

Kay said...

How pretty this is! Actually I didn't know you liked taupe. You've been into brighter fabrics in the past, haven't you? But there's always change---

Morah said...

Handpiecing! I love the idea but never seem to finish the projects. I can't wait to see this one done. Fabrics are beautiful.

Mary said...

Very pretty - a Dresden plate is another quilt on my list but not sure how many years it will be before I get to it! Are your fabrics different from the picture you linked to? I like your plates better.

Jenni @ Fairybread said...

Lovely fabrics - lucky you. Love your orange flower quilt BTW

Vicky said...

Awesome quilt! Uh oh, I feel a "meg" coming on!

I'm going to be closely watching your progress on this one!!!
