W.I.P. Wednesday - Work in Progress
There's a little bit of "frozen rain" falling around here; and it's still so dark I think I forgot to go to bed, but since I've been up since 5:30, I thought I'd share what I've been working on this week. I'm hooking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for Work-in-Progress Wednesday.
I got my "Stacked" quilt finished yesterday; handed it off to Guy about noon; and he had it quilted by 3:00. It still needs to be trimmed; I found a pretty pastel multi-batik in my stash, so that's going to be the binding.
I love the random leaf pattern he used in the quilting:
Here's an idea of what the whole quilt looks like....yes, I was too lazy to put it up on the wall:
I got sucked into the current "Scrappy Trip Around the World" block mania. So now I guess I've got another UFO started:
I'm trying to keep a black square of some print or other going through the middle of each block....we'll see how this works out. I must admit, it's easy to get hooked. This is the tub of fabrics I'm working from.....all 2 1/2-inch strips:
I started working on the "Sew Red for Women" blocks again. I've made 7 of the 11 that have been published so far. The January block (number 12) got postponed for a while.....I took it as a sign that I have time to get the other 4 done so I will be caught up. I think these will look just right for a February Valentine's quilt, don't you?
And, of course, "Easy Street" keeps calling me. Can you believe that the makings for 23 15-inch blocks all fit in this bin:
OK, time for juice and a piece of toast. I'm off to play piano accompaniment for Stonewall High School's production of "Side by Side by Sondheim"....three more morning rehearsals and performances Friday and Saturday.......it's been a busy week. Stay safe out there,
