It could just be me - WIP Wednesday


commission quilt WIP

I started piecing a commission quilt today using the Valorie Wells pattern Rosalie.  The cutting took forever, but the piecing seems to be going alright.  I fear it might be a bit more orange than expected (although, it could just be me).  As long as there are no changes, I am slightly ahead of schedule for once!

This Wednesday...

Completed Projects:
  • Bee Blocks - Lucky Star May and August complete, Simply Solids September
  • Candy Corn Table Runner - just for fun
  • Swoon - I now have 8 blocks done out of 12 for my twin size quilt
  • QAYG bags - 1 more done! Boy these were fun.  You can see it  here.
On-going Projects:

AKA - "stuff I plan to touch this week or next".
  • Bee Blocks & BOM blocks -  Lucky Star BOM (5 blocks), 
  • Star of Africa Bee - 3 blocks to do
  • Swoon - 4 more blocks to go
  • Commission quilt - piecing in progress
  • Summersville Drunkards Path blocks - this is my Lazy Bums project this month.  They were originally just supposed to be a bunch of hot pads, and maybe that is what they will end up being in the end.
  • OBW Quilt Along - fabric selection in progress
  • Handstitched Medallion quilt - this one had to move up the ranks.  I entered it into a local quilt show coming up very soon.  My last border is started, but will take a while.  Cross your fingers I will manage to finish it before the show.
Back, Back, Back Burner:

I periodically think about working on these projects, but they are lower priority than the ones above
This week's stats:
Completed projects - 2 plus lots of blocks
New projects - 2
Currently in Progress - 7 ish

Don't forget to link up any blocks you have been working on to the Building Blocks Tuesday post.  It stays open for a whole week.

And as always, thanks for reading,

  4. Hi Jen, your quilt looks great. I don't think it's too much orange. The teal balances it out. I have no idea how you find the time to get so much done. I feel so lame LOL. I'll be getting my machine back on Friday woohoo! I messed up the timing - go figure. Keep up the good work-enjoy the process!! Hope to see you soon.

  5. love the hexi. stars quilt, I've just finished one small one and have two on the go, but I'm using the English paper piecing method - quick to cut but slow to assemble, lol

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
