WIP Wednesday #21


Happy Wednesday! Time to haul out those WIPs again …

Ongoing projects:

Make Mine Modern swap
So, you might remember that last week I wasn’t sure if my MMM item was ridiculously awesome or completely insane. Eventually I decided, on the awesomeness/insanity continuum, my plan was a bit far right of crazy, especially with the deadline I was working under. So I changed things up and put together these scrappy rainbow placemats instead, based on Angela’s delicious Pink Lemonade quilt. Each placemat is two colors (in addition to white): One red and orange, one orange and yellow, one yellow and green, one green and blue, and one blue and purple. And I would love to have time to make one more: Purple and red, of course, which would bring the set full circle. But mailing for this swap starts tomorrow, so I’m going to quilt these five first, and then I’ll make the final one if I have time. I hope my partner will love these as much as I do!

Supernova Quilt-Along
Aside from the MMM placemats, I’ve spent the last week trying to stay current with my own quilt-along. I guess I’m the one person who really does need to get my blocks done on time, huh? : ) Not to worry, my blocks are coming along, and tomorrow’s post is ready to go. And I can’t get over all the amazing Supernovas I see shaping up in the Flickr group! It’s not too late to join the fun, if you’ve been considering it. Whether you catch up with my posts or you take your sweet time, we’d love to have you!

Your turn! Link up any post from the past week featuring a work in progress. Last week I noticed several posts that only included finishes, so this is just a gentle reminder that there must be something unfinished in your post. A little different than most linkies out there, I know, but that’s how we roll here at WIP Wednesday—click here to read more about my WIP “philosophy” and why I started this linky. And please comment on at least a few of the other links—share the love, you guys. A good rule of thumb is to comment on the links right before yours. Have a very productive week!

    Hello Lee! I love both of your photos! Yesterday I was thinking how to make balls without cutting circles and here it is! All those colours are so wonderful – with white!!!
    The other with grey is also beautiful, it reminds me of ice cream…thank you for inspiration!

    Oooh, I love what you're doing for MMM! You've got one seriously lucky partner. How are you doing getting caught up on Supernova? Your blocks look so fantastic, I can't wait to see them all put together!

    Your MMM project looks great! And though life has me running a tad behind on the Supernova qa, I am loving the process and following you and others on flickr!

    I'm loving all the bright colors!

    Thanks for hosting again this week. It really keeps me on top of things that might otherwise fall to the side, never to be looked at or thought about again. 🙂

    The placemats are great, so fresh and bright! I haven't sewn for a few days, I've been decluttering and tidying, it was getting beyond ridiculous!, so my WIP is my tidying the sewing (I mean dining) room! :o)
