Wave Quilt, so close to being done!

Hey everyone! I hope the weekend is looking bright for you and you have lots of fun things planned. I think we'll be heading to the beach if the weather holds out for us. :) Today I got quite a bit accomplished with my wave quilt. I have the whole top sewn together except a strip at the bottom. Here it is!

I laid it out on the floor here, it's kind of big...

And then here it is on my bed.

I just love it. It's so bright and cheery :D I put it on my bed and thought "good morning sunshine!" LOL! I love the colors in it. It is just how I pictured it in my head. I love working with batiks, the colors are fabulous. The strip I need to add is a tan/brown batik, I'll add a 10" strip of it at the bottom, it kind of finishes it off, like a sandy beach.

Today was a great mail day. I had ordered these kits back in April, it took awhile to get them, but boy was it worth the wait! I got 5 Shepherd's Bush kits, I think I died and went to heaven :D
Here is what they are: Americana Roll, Long May She Wave Roll, Bee Scissor Fob (with scissors), Americana Scissor Fob (with scissors), Summer is Waving. What to stitch up first?! :D

Here is my progress on Harbor Lights from this week. So far so good. I love the linen I got, it's so soft.

Woah, that was a long post, sorry about that :D I need to post daily I think! Thank you for all of the comments you have been leaving, I sure appreciate the encouragement and kind words, you are too kind! :) Have a great weekend!!!
