WIP Wednesday: A Happy Week

IMG_8692

Ah, it’s been quite a week around here, in more ways than one! Lots of exciting things are afoot, but here’s what I’ve got for you today.

Completed:

Solids quilt. This is my first finished quilt of 2012—and I can’t show it to you. How annoying. But I’m very pleased with it, and even more pleased that it’s finished!

New projects:

 
Challenge mini quilt – Mark Cesarik was nice enough to send me a little preview of his upcoming line, Cosmic Burst. These vivid colors practically leaped out of the envelope all on their own–they’re so fabulous! Can’t wait to finish this mini and enter it in the Modern Mini Challenge at Ellison Lane Quilts.

    I just finished my first quilt of 2012 as well–what a great feeling to have something done! We'll look forward to your great reveal at a later date. Fun to see those new fabrics all talking next to each other.

    What size strip did you cut for your binding for the Solid Quilt? My binding NEVER looks like that! I'm wondering if maybe I should use a smaller strip. I use a 2.5 inch strip.

      I like them! I like how they don't curve the edge of the quilt the way the old barrette-type binding clips did. I think you can stitch closer to them without taking them out, whether by machine or by hand.
