WIP Wednesday

It's a good thing it's WIP Wednesday now and not yesterday!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

My sewing room was a mess yesterday, but I was getting sick of it, and needed to muck it out and clean it up! I have so much on my to-do list that a complete room muck-out seems like a waste of time, but I find I work much better in a tidy, well-organized space. I finally finished at 930pm and my entire self went AHHHH. Then Mr Poppleton and I decided it was date night so we watched Silver Linings Playbook* (my suggestion)!

I have been busy this week but my two major finishes are from WEEKS ago, but they only just arrived at their destination, so I am going to put them up for this week!

Finishes

shattered star

Shattered Star, blogged here.

Washi Windows

And Washi Windows! I must blog about this one properly soon, but it is finally finished, and already in its new home! You can see that it is almost a year in the making!!

I also had a birthday present to make this week. My brother in law is finally home and can be given presents again! (They lived in South America for two years and every card I sent went missing. Imagine my fury!) Last Sunday everyone was over for brunch so I made him spend ten minutes riffling through my stash. I love watching people do this, actually, choosing fabric from my stash! He chose five prints and I decided four of them worked and so I whipped him up a couple of Nesting Bowls, the 4" and the 5" size.

We will drop those off tonight along with some brownies. :)

Works In Progress

I'm still going strong on my Marcelle Medallion Quilt (main page for the Quilt-Along here)! I finished assembling border 2 and now have to attach it!

Whew! Border 2 finished (just pinned not sewn on) :) #mmqal

Ongoing / stalled

  • Bee blocks for both AusModBee and IQBS. I feel awful about it - so tonight is the night. I will have those in the post tomorrow, even if I have to take a disco nap and stay up late!!
  • Whitney's Swoon Quilt - this is first out of the gates when I get done with my Marcelle Medallion top
  • Terrain Challenge - I've decided on the borders but I need to cut them, sew them on, and basically just finish it. It's honestly an afternoon's worth of work; I've just come to dearly loathe this quilt top and I don't have the ambition to finish it!
  • O Quilt - I pulled this out yesterday and had a look at it. It'll be a really great quilt once it's finished, I just need to piece the blocks.
  • Trade Winds 2 - just need to bat, back, and quilt this one - all ready to go
  • Picnic Rug - just need to bat, back, and quilt this one too - all ready to go.
  • Pattern writing
  • Designing (not going to talk about this much, but I'm full of hope!)

To Do list

And, the scariest thing... New projects

Okay! That's it for me! How's your week going? Don't forget to link up with Lee!!


*The book was better. There was a lot more to the book. But, I enjoy Jennifer Lawrence in just about anything, and Bradley Cooper has now thoroughly convinced me as an actor that he has chops. :)

The star quilt you made is my definite favourite!

Your 2 finishes are just wonderful- both quilts have a real character. Your color choice is perfect.

Love your finished quilts, and your medallion is looking amazing!

I love your black and white triangle border!

Great HST star quilt finish! I really like the swirl quilting to contrast the crisp triangles. Makes me want to grab a FQ bundle of Kona solids :)

Your start quilt is beautiful! I love your use of colors and HST. Your medallion quilt is going to be fantastic--love the colors you are using!

September 12, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterRenee

That's quite the list! I'm too scared to actually write down my wips, I think we would be talking 20+. Love your medallion so far, and washi windows is gorgeous!

I love love the shattered star. I am becoming more and more a fan of plain material.
