Hot Quilting

A few months ago I started making a quilt for one of my nieces
with this pink and black zebra print.
She LOVES pink and black zebra print.

It is in the home stretch.

"Hot Hot Hot" is becoming
Finished Finished Finished!

My FMQ skills are not very good at all,
but they will only improve with practice....
I hope!!

This is one wild quilt!

Now that the deadline was met for making the four
I can get the sleeves blocked for this sweater I'm making.

Unblocked sleeve parts.

Front pieces and back stitched together.

Hopefully this will be done by fall!

In the meantime,
the sock knitting continues.

I finished the first sock with this awesome
"Socks that Rock" yarn.
Isn't the pooling so cool??

I love how the heel and toe are striped. 
It's like I added a different yarn for each, but I didn't.

Please visit Patchwork Times and Whoop Whoop
to see what others are creating.

Happy Friday!!

She is going to love that "hot" quilt. Summertime is the perfect time to be working on a quilt like that. Love your knitting too. Those sock colors are so interesting.

Great quilt... and I LOVE LOVE LOVE those socks! What colorway of Socks that Rock is this? And what stitch count and what size needles? Sorry to be so nosy but I love when yarns pools and I've had varying degrees of success with getting that effect. Socks That Rock is some of my favorite yarn... love the colors... the names... and roundy-ness of the yarn. Thanks!
