WIP Wednesday - May 21st
Well, I have been busy busy busy this week with my sewing! I had every single WIP done except for 1... which I did not feel like working on at the moment, you know how that goes! Plus, I had only 1 WIP, which basically gives me license to start new projects! Yay me!
This is my progress so far on my feathers QAL. Obviously I am only QALing with myself here lol but I love the pattern. I can only take so much paper piecing at once then, then my domestic deficit disorder kicks in and needs some new entertainment lol.
Then I decided to get out my selvedge edges and finally start a project with them! I am so excited about this one. It feel awesome to make something out of virtually nothing. This will be an long term ongoing project that I can add to as I get more selvedges. Right now I have 35 5in string blocks.
Then since I still didn't want to work on the PP, I pulled out some new Kona in Berry, which I berry much love! I want to do a cathedral windows quilt for living room couch, I think. This will not be done all in one shot either since this is tedious and time consuming. So I did two blocks and then another day did 2 more, just need to add the windows in now. I do love how it is coming out. It is far from perfect but every time I do another window I am learning more.
Then I started a stacked coins quilt, because ... why not? But this is one I did everything I could on til I have solids for the sashing. I can not buy fabric right yet so this was something I could work on and set aside til I can finish it as well!
Then I decided to try and make a wallet, which I was convinced I could not do. Turns out I can actually do it! Turns out... I also hate it lol. I am giving it to my mom for Christmas! lol
Then I pulled out my next FQ bundle and designed a way to use it that I like. I have not done any cutting yet but came up with this:
Few little boo boos in the coloring of it, but I get the idea lol. Feel free to use it if you like it. Obviously I haven't tested it yet so I may be off in the math on the side, that is always my weak point. lol
Whew! That was a lot. I am pretty sure this is the most progress I have ever had in one week lol. Hopefully later this week I can get the sashing and finish the top of the stacked coins quilt.
If anyone has any selvedges they do not want, I would be glad to take em :)
Now...off to do the hop myself and see what every one has been up to! Last week was pretty quiet comment wise, I think that was because of all the SMS giveaway stuff, but I did finish my plus quilt and share that in case you missed it.
