WIP Wednesday

Stargate--Progress:

I'm officially calling this my Stargate quilt.  I pieced and cut enough strips for all four circles.  It's looking really quite crazy at this point.  I'm starting to get a little worried at what I've created.  It is going to be one very unique (hopefully in a good way) quilt.

Sorry about the less than stellar photo.  My design wall is now located in the corner of our office and pictures are pretty tricky.  That handle you see belongs to our elliptical trainer--the one I had to step over to hang all these pieces on the wall and the same one I did not exercise on last night due to my sewing obsession.  It sits there quietly while I sew, reminding me that I am an exercise slacker.


I even sewed one circle.  The best thing is that it lays flat!  That's always my worry in sewing Dresdens.  I'm afraid that they will pucker and pop out.  I know I'm inconsistent in my sewing and cutting.  I just hope that I'm consistently inconsistent rather than inconsistently inconsistent.  I figure as long as I'm consistently inconsistent it will still all work out.

Diamonds--No Progress:

I've stalled on my quilting of this guy.  It's just patiently waiting to be finished up.  It will take at least two more quilting sessions though, and the last one made my arms and shoulders sore for a day.

  1. I love your dresdens. I am going to sew mine together today although I have to say I am less than impressed with my fabric choices. Sometimes though we just have to see them through.

  2. The stargate quilt looks unique in an awesome way. It's really cool! And yeah, my exercise has also suffered for my sewing habit. We need to figure a way to combine them.

  5. Beautiful work! Try raising your chair or sit on the phone book when you are quilting and keep your shoulders back chest out - it may reduce the pain next time.

  7. Great wheels - do you know yet what background you want to put them on? I need to try Leanne's advice above, because I get sore, too, working on large projects. I'm probably not sitting high enough. . .

  19. embrace your "consistently inconsistent" ways. It surely works for you and us (your admirers).
    your stargate has made me get out my Must Make list and reorder where the dresden comes up on the list. Thank you for sharing.

  20. Kati - this is AWESOME!!!! Little Bluebell (the DW) keeps laughing at me when ever I say that Single Girl quilts look like Stargates to me ( see the stargate post here ).

    But this Dresden is way better! I am going to post, tweet, and shout at the rooftops everywhere so the whole world knows about your Stargate quilt!

    Tom <-- who has seen every Stargate episode including the 3 movies.
