WIP Wednesday: Chevrons and Mid-Mod


WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Let’s do this thing.

Still working on nephew Jack’s baby quilt. I finished all the gray chevron strips and I’m moving on to the green and blue now.

Business and Leisure by Allison Bielke for Modern Yardage

Next up is a quilt with this fabulous fabric from the “Business and Leisure” line by Allison Bielke for Modern Yardage. Allison is a friend from the Milwaukee Modern Quilt Guild, not to mention a very talented designer who takes a lot of her inspiration from mid-century modern design. I’m so excited to work with her fabric on this next project!

Check out some of Allison’s city print fabrics, too—like Paris Chicago, and (of course) Milwaukee. Love! And you can buy them all right here, from Modern Yardage, an exciting new kind of fabric company that I hope to devote an entire post to in the future.


And last but not least, check out the massive pattern shipment that arrived at my house yesterday! This isn’t even half of it. : ) I got my Wisconsin business registration a few days ago as well, so I guess between these two things, I am now officially official.

What are you working on? Here are the linky rules:
1. Link up any post from the past week that features at least one unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog. (Or grab the WIP Wednesday button for your sidebar.)
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links.

(Reminder: Internet Explorer users may have trouble linking up. If so, try downloading the free Chrome or Firefox browsers, and that should solve your problem.)

    Those grey chevrons are so precise and gorgeous! Can't wait to see it with the blues and greens. 🙂 It's going to be stunning!
    I love those colors in that fabric line, as well. Wonderful!

    So those boxes are the proofs for your book? That must be really exciting to see your hard work get to this point. I'll have to go and check out the yardage, as it's always nice to find something new. And all your other projects are looking great–you have a lot going on!

    May I ask where you get your printing done? I've priced out a number of places, and all of them are too high to make a buck when selling to distributors…
