Wednesday again? What, like it happens every seven days now or something? I’ve got things to do, people to see, t-ball games to watch, bathing suits to wring out, etc. But I have been sneaking in some sewing time here and there …
Skill Builder Sampler Quilt-Along – currently caught up
Block #2 was a value nine-patch. I’m working with Weekends by Erin McMorris for this QA, and value is challenging within this line. Many of the prints are around the same value, and some of the others are so large-scale and multi-colored that it’s hard to pinpoint a value at all. I considered getting my contrast in this block from warm colors versus cool, just as Jeni did for the Warm/Cool Quilt Along that I’m completing right now. But I decided to stay true to Leila’s challenge, instead of taking the easy way out. And I’m glad I did, because I love the end result! Click here for more about the Skill Builder QA.
Farmer’s Wife Quilt-Along – currently caught up Click here for this week’s blocks.
Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Warm/Cool Quilt-Along – I’ve completed the top and the back, so it’s all ready to baste. I’m actually going to try spray basting this time! Yes, it’s true! And I can’t wait to give FMQ stippling another shot. Click here for more info on Jeni’s quilt-along.
Completed quilts awaiting binding: Modern Meadow – seriously, this is embarrassing. I really need to find the time to just sit down and finish this one already. There’s absolutely no reason for it to still be hanging around on this list.
