WIP Wednesday - a little progress
I have been working on my larger Mod Pop quilt and sharing some tips on piecing curves in the Mod Pop QAL. We are having a giveaway too to get people over curve phobia, entries need to be in by Oct. 21. I love these blocks, now I am keen to get the quilt top done and start the quilting. I am just waiting on a more fabric supplies to arrive so I can make a big push on the block making.
These liberty tana lawns are now joined with a beautiful green/blue solid in groups of 4 but it was too dark last night to get a decent picture. Hopefully this week those will become rows of 12 squares and soon a top.
This is a 3" Ohio Star made with Oakshott Liparis and light grey Essex Linen. I have made 2 stars so far.
I think that they are going to be a Christmas runner or wall hanging or something, not sure what yet. I love Ohio Stars and plan to make a bunch more.
So on the WIP front, I am sewing blocks, for several projects, not focusing on any one project, but having fun.
I have also been making bee blocks over this last week or so.
Free Bee - an improv group - for Dan. This piece is about 17" x 14".
Some extras too with the leftovers.
Free Bee for Ethne. This is a triangle with 18" sides.
Always Bee Learning, New York Beauty for Michonne. Paper piecing and I are not getting along that well this month, but the block looks good none the less.
Free Bee for Nicolette - inspired by the windows of Provence. And now I am almost caught up on my bee blocks, just a couple more to do and then there will be fabric arriving soon for a couple of more bees.
I have also joined a bunch of blog hops and need to share that news soon and get to work on the projects for them. And I have a couple of tickets to tell you about. I guess I have blogging homework to catch up on too.
I am going to link up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and the Needle and Thread Network - buttons for both are on the right side of my blog. I have gotten out of the WIP Wednesday habit and now I am less organized, so I am going to see what I can do to improve on that too. There will be wonderful inspiration at those links, I hope you have time to visit some of them.
The wind is blowing today, it feels like winter is on the way.
