WIP Wednesday 5.9.12
I haven't participated in Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday recently. Mostly because my main project is one I can't share pictures of right now. It's always fun to have a secret project. I plan to quilt it this week! You'll see pictures in a few months.
My current project on the wall is my progress for the Retro Flowers Quilt from Sometimes Crafter. I admit these blocks are getting the best of me. I cut these out with my Go and then trimmed because I don't think I'd ever have the patience to actually cut them by hand. The sewing is slow. I was able to get a nice stack of the curves pieced at our guild Sewing Saturday then finished them over the weekend. I'm thinking this project might go back in the bag for a while. I think I need a little break from these guys. Don't get me wrong, I love how they are turning out. The quilt design is adorable, I've just realized it's not my favorite type of piecing. They'll come out again in a few weeks hopefully.
Also, I finished my Color Quilt last night! I can't tell you how excited I am about this one. I have literally been working on this one all year. My first post about it was in January. I'm so excited to share, but I think I'll save it for the Bloggers Quilt Festival next week. I love participating in Amy's festival. I was planning to do a simple grey binding on the quilt, but with the hub's encouragement I went scrappy. It really is a perfect addition to the quilt. Here is my stack of fabric for the binding--organized by the color wheel of course!
For the coming week I hope to quilt my secret quilt and whip up three bee blocks. I also plan to pull a nice stack of pink fabric for a twin quilt for my niece. My SIL "commissioned" me to make her a quilt like the Bubble Baby Quilt I made earlier this year, and I'm excited to give it a try.
What are you working on this week?
