Work-In-Progress Wednesday


Since “wordless” isn’t really my strong suit, I’m going to start devoting Wednesdays to a WIP round-up. Maybe it will motivate me to finish more of them. At the very least, it’ll help me keep track of everything I’m working on. (I’m an obsessive list-maker—I don’t function without a to-do list!)

Hope Valley quilt
I’m piecing this one now, and I am SUPER excited to show it to you. But for now, here’s just a little sneaky peak.

That Girl … That Quilt Along quilt
I don’t know why, but I just wasn’t feeling those Oddysea charms that I picked out. I love the line, but I decided it just wasn’t working for this project. So I’m changing things up—I’m busting out my Farmdale! The more I look at this line, the more I love, LOVE, LOVE.

Modern Meadow baby quilt
Top’s done, but I’m still considering how to quilt it. This one’s not needed until February or March, so plenty of time to keep thinking about it.

Fat Quarterly Quilt Along quilt
Top’s done. I’m definitely going to try Imagingermonkey‘s easy-peasy wavy-line quilting. (Hey, click on the link—there’s my quilt in the lower right corner of the mosaic!). But since this top is not for any person or place in particular, it’s not high priority right now.

Figgy Pudding Christmas quilt
The pattern I’m working from is above (it’s a free pattern from Moda). I’m about halfway done piecing it, but I just haven’t been motivated to work on it lately. Other things interest me more right now. That’s probably because I’m doing this one straight from the pattern, with no modifications at all. But I know the girlies would love having a Christmas quilt. I’ll get back to it one of these days.

Wonky Log Cabin quilt
I started this one while I was still pregnant with my 18-month-old. Oops—I guess that officially makes it a UFO. But check it out! I forgot that it’s actually kind of cute. I’m not sure why I stopped working on it for so long. I find improv a little intimidating, but I also love how forgiving it is. I really need to drag this one back out.

UPDATE: Elizabeth suggested I do a little WIP Wednesday linky thing. I love it—great idea, Elizabeth! I’ll start that next Wednesday. Anybody who wants to do their own WIP Wednesday post and link it up here is welcome. I hope you’ll all join in. Should be a good motivator—let’s all knock some projects off our lists together!

    great projects! (can't wait to see more of that Hope Valley!)

    and go easy on yourself… quilting is all about following our whims! It's the only part of our life where we mamas of toddlers actually have a little bit of power! 😉

    Holy moly, I had no idea how much we had in common – sounds like my list of works-in-progress!

    I adore the snippet of your Hope Valley quilt, it's going to be gorgeous, I can just tell. And I adore Farmdale, can't wait to see how your quilt-along top comes out! I am in love with your little wonky log cabin UFO. Definitely pick that one up again! 🙂

    P.S. – You should start a Works-in-Progress Wednesday linky. I know I'd join in, for one!
