WIP Wednesday #19


Welcome to WIP Wednesday. First, let me apologize: I wasn’t able to get around and visit all of the links from last week. I really hate that, because I love that you’re all here to share, and it’s so inspiring to see what everybody’s been working on. But I’ve had swap deadlines, quilt-along preparations, and sick kids to boot (again!). I promise I’ll visit everybody’s links this time around, although I may not get there until the weekend. Don’t wait up for me.

So what’s been happening around Freshly Pieced headquarters? Well, you already heard: Sick kids, deadlines, yadda yadda yadda. Somehow I managed several finishes anyway. Not to worry, there’s plenty more where those came from.

Ongoing projects:

1. supernova rainbow, 2. supernova1, 3. SQA – Fabric Selection 2, 4. Stacks of color for Supernova, 5. OZ Stack, 6. Supernova fabric picks, 7. Supernova Fabric.jpg, 8. DSC_2076, 9. 03-22-11 Supernova QA fabrics (I think)

Supernova Quilt-Along

Cutting instructions tomorrow, you guys! I can hardly wait! Check out just a few of the fabulous fabric stacks on display in the Flickr group. All that fabric is just dying to be cut up, don’t you think? : )Project Selvage
Since I spent the last week pushing to meet swap deadlines, I haven’t had much time for this. But I’ve had plenty of opportunities to think about my entry—and it’s starting to look really awesome in my head. Unfortunately, Spoonflower prefers .tifs or .jpgs over the “imaginary” format. But I have quite a few sketches and some rough digital drawings. I’m going to devote the next two days, hard-core, to getting these designs out of my head and officially entered into the contest. In the meantime, please enjoy this drawing by our budding artist-in-residence, Miss E. It’s loosely based on one of my Project Selvage sketches, and actually made me seriously consider entering a print that she made instead. : )

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Hope Valley (the original Supernova)

Completed quilts awaiting binding:
Modern Meadow

On hold … still:
Central Park jelly roll quilt
Figgy Pudding quilt
Wonky Log Cabin

This week’s stats:
New projects – 1 (commissioned pillows)
Completed projects – 3 (DQS quilt, 3 x 6 bee blocks, and the commissioned pillows)
Currently in progress – 10 (down two from last week! yay!)

Okay, let’s see what you guys have all been up to. Link ’em up, link ’em back, and comment, comment, comment. Happy WIP Wednesday!

    I sure hope you get Project Selvedge done on time, I had high hopes of entering too, but alas I don't think it is going to happen. Looking forward to seeing all the Supernova quilts!

    Oops – I think I goofed! I posted my project but it wasn't a quilt – it's #7 – a tote bag. I didn't realize the posts were all about quilts. Sorry about that! I love all the beautiful quilt posts. Thanks!

    This is my first WIP submission! I just found you a couple of hours ago and thought, what the heck! So I took pics and created a post of what I am working on. Cool idea!

    I'm jealous of all those bright, beautiful stacks of fabrics!

    I think the kids drawings is a great idea for an entry into Project Selvage.
