WIP Wednesday #35


Hey! I did some stuff this week. : ) Okay, no finishes. But progress, nonetheless.

New project:

Don’t Call Me Betsy‘s Kaleidoscope Quilt-Along
I cut fabric for this one, slapped it up on my design wall, and … yellow light. Proceed with caution. It’s just so freaking yellow. I know, I know—what did I expect after cutting up a yard and a half of the yellow print? Excellent question. But either way, I don’t know how I feel about this. It’s not that I don’t like it … it’s just not what I envisioned. Nor does it go with any room in my house. Like, at all. But do those things really matter? Another excellent question. I’m going to keep pondering for another day or two. In the meantime, any and all design suggestions are welcome. (Click here for more info on Elizabeth’s quilt-along.)

Ongoing projects:
Warm/Cool Quilt – currently being quilted
Yeah! I’m quilting! That means a finish may be eminent! Try not to keel over from the shock of it!

Farmer’s Wife Quilt-Along – currently caught up
Click here for this week’s blocks.

Skill Builder Sampler Quilt-Along – currently caught up
No block this week—Leila gave us an optional design-your-own-block challenge, but I’m sitting it out.

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

Completed quilts awaiting binding:
Modern Meadow – Ugh. Still.

No progress:
Secret project (on hold while I reconsider fabric selections)

This week’s stats:
New projects – 1
Completed projects – 0
Currently in progress – 11

I think you all know the drill, but just in case: Link back here, and comment away. We’ve had two weeks in a row of 99 link-ups—come on, we just need one more to hit 100! Help us reach triple digits! Happy Wednesday, everyone.

P.S. Be sure to come back tomorrow, when it will be go time for my GO! Baby giveaway! : )

    I think the yellow looks great! But I also see how it might not work in every room… but hey, I am sure you will find a place for it, right? 🙂

    I like the yellow a lot! I think your issue is that it's not what you expected, not that it's not pretty or nice. I'd let it percolate for a while and see what you think.

    I actually love the yellow in your kaleidoscope quilt, but I am a yellow fan. You know, if it doesn't fit at your house, I'd take it off your hands. Not that it fits in mine either, but I could find room for it! 😉

    I love the colors, but if you think it is too yellow, put your corner triangles on the yellow triangles instead of the colored ones, and it will give you a whole nother look, that you might like better, because it will break up the yellow even though your not replacing blocks, just moving the corner stones around.
