WIP Wednesday

    I'm excited about this WIP Wednesday, since I actually made some progress this week!

    First up, I'm doing the Made In Cherry Quilt Along over at pins and bobbins.  I'm using Joel Dewberry Heirloom and Kona Berry for the background.  I have all the squares and triangles cut, and I'm getting really excited about this one!  I love QALs, it's so fun to see how differently people interpret patterns.

    Next up, the Triad Modern Quilt Guild is doing a travel pillow swap for February.  After much debate (I am a classic over-thinker), I think I've settled on this for the front.  This was my first foray into flying geese, they are way easier than I thought!  It's made with a different prints from Denyse Schmidt's lines at Joann's.  Now I just have to decide on quilting, any edging, backing, and how to close it.

    Finally, I am sooooo relieved to have all my blocks completed for my crazy scrap quilt, whose working title is what-was-i-thinking-holy-HST...or something.  

    Not one fabric is repeated (I guess I have more fabric than I thought!), and although I fell out of love with this thing big time while piecing it, I'm getting back to loving it.  Now I'm just trying to decide if I like it with or without sashing.  It seems a little spastic without the sashing, but maybe that's a good thing?

    Here's to another productive week!


  1. That scrappy quilt looks AMAZING! I love the sashing, I'd say go for it! :)

  2. I love that scrappy quilt! I think it looks great with or without the sashing. Where do you plan on using it? If you need it to be bigger, I would definitely go with the sashing!

  3. Sorry for the late response from last weeks WIP Wednesday. I'm still pouring through everyone's entries.

    Your HST scrappy quilt is just gorgeous! I would never get tired of looking at it.

  4. Holy scrap quilt!! That is incredible!! I cannot believe you made all those HST-heavy blocks. But it looks like it was worth all the work! Looking forward to seeing your Made in Cherry quilt too. LOOOVE Heirloom! Thanks for linking up with WIP Wednesday. : )

  5. Love your scrappy star quilt. Can you tell me what pattern this is?

    1. Thanks so much! It's a pattern from The Big Book of Scrap Quilts called Spring Blossoms. It's a variation of the Ohio Star block.
