WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Hi everybody—I’m Stacey from The Tilted Quilt. I am really thrilled to guest host WIP Wednesday for Lee this week. This was one of the first blogs I ever stumbled upon when I started quilting and I remember even being nervous the first time I linked up to share a project. If this is your first time or your thirtieth, welcome! I love browsing the projects from all of the talented quilters each week—what an inspiration and a wonderful place to share our passion for quilting with each other.

My to-do list is ever growing, but a few recent finishes have made way for a whole set of new work.

Here’s what’s going on in my sewing room this week:

 

I’m working on a quilt for Moda Bake Shop that should (fingers crossed) be completed mid-July. It uses the totally adorable S’more Love line that just came out. This is going to be a family quilt to take on our camping adventures. I can’t wait to show you the finished product—it will be a very simple paper-pieced block, great for beginners.

 

On my cutting table you will find these three fabrics which will make up Block #5 of my Swoon quilt.  I’ve just joined a Flickr group of other Swooners with the goal of finishing this up by the end of the summer.

These blocks were made for me by my Get Your Hex On! hive mates. It would be an understatement to say that I am a hex-aholic. I started a bee this year dedicated to all things hexie and it’s been such a blast so far. My month to host was February and I hadn’t really made progress on laying out these gorgeous blocks yet. This past weekend, my hubby (aka my design consultant) and I put up the blocks on the design wall and started playing around with layouts for these blocks. Eventually, the quilt will be called “Falling in Love.” I snapped a quick pic of what I want to do.

 

Now, I’ve got to figure out a way to implement the vision.

So, what are you working on this week? 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.

P.S. (from Lee): Hey, would you like to guest-host a WIP Wednesday post? I’m looking for guest-hosts with beautiful projects, a unique style, and an entertaining writing voice for the first Wednesday of each month. Drop me a line at freshlypieced *at* gmail dot com and include a link to your own blog. Priority will go to those who have regularly linked up to WIP Wednesday in the past.

      Thanks – now just to work it out. I had my hive mates sew the hexies down on white fabric. I can't decide if I want them to stay there and then add them to more white fabric, or remove them and then applique them down to a whole cloth. HMMM.

      If it were mine, I'd lean toward adding more white fabric in various triangular shapes to get your angles. Seems easier than redoing all that applique. I don't think whole cloth would improve the look enough for the extra work.I like the design and title; I love puns that take a common figurative saying and make it literal.

    S'More Love is my new fabric obsession. Naturally, I'd just started coming down from a fabric buying binge when I came across S'More Love. I'm pining over it from afar until I can justify another purchase. *SIGH* Also, I love your "Falling in Love" idea.

      I know – it's so adorable. I think they used to have a scrapbooking line and the fabrics do remind me a little of scrapbook paper designs. It is so cute, especially for little boys. It's hard to find as many great manly/boyish fabrics, but these are fantastic!

    There's never an empty moment in a quilter's life! Good luck on your new projects and finishing your old ones. Also wanted to tell you that I really enjoy your Wed. linky parties. It's one of the few that sticks to sewing and quilting and it's so inspiring! Thank you!
