WIP Wednesday: Back In Business

Happy Wednesday! And it is happy, because I have my machine back! I no longer have to use “The Hulk,” as the Milwaukee Modern Quilt Guild girls nicknamed my Hello Kitty back-up machine. So I’m finally ready to get down to business and knock some projects off this list.New projects:

Asterisk quilt. November was my last month in Do. Good Stitches (at least for a while), and it was also my month as quilter. I asked the ladies of the Love Circle to make asterisk blocks in warm oranges and pinks and cool grays and whites—a color palette inspired by a winter sunset. Here are all the blocks I received, all together, looking fabulous! I just need to make my own blocks (I’m making four) and then I can get it pieced. I had considered adding sashing, but now that I see them all together, I’m really digging the haphazard feel. It really does look like a winter sunset in quilt form, doesn’t it?

Ongoing projects:
Solids quilt. Made some really good progress here, even though I was using The Hulk! Wish I could show it to you, but not yet.

    I'm feeling your pain. I had to take my newly-figured-out serger back to the shop on Monday, and I'm very sad and unmotivated, even though my regular sewing machine works just fine and I've got a million things I should be doing!
    Hopefully by this time next week, my story will be more like yours! 🙂
    BTW – I love your asterisks! Gorgeous colors!
