Happy Wednesday! I feel like I’m juggling a lot of WIPs lately, so let’s get to it, while I try to keep all these balls in the air. : )
I finally took the plunge and started quilting Crazytown. (And yes, a Crazytown pattern is in the works! Just hold your horses!) I was lucky enough to see some quilts by Jacquie Gering of Tallgrass Prairie Studios over the weekend, and her creative use of a walking foot in her quilting inspired me to try something similar on Crazytown. I dialed up this multi-stitch zig-zag, and away I went. I love how it’s turning out!
Speaking of Jacquie, here are my “precise improv” slice-and-insert blocks from a workshop that I took with Jacquie on Sunday. I liked the idea of slicing-and-inserting only in straight, 90-degree lines—no angles here! I made these with a gorgeous bundle of Oakshott shot cottons. Now I just need to decide what they’ll become: Pillow? Mini quilt?
Here are Faith and I with Jacquie at the workshop (photo courtesy of Faith). If you have the opportunity to take a class with Jacquie, I highly recommend it! Her tips made me feel like I could actually be an improv quilter. LOL.
What are you working on this week? Here are the linky rules:
1. Link up any post from the past week that features an unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog.
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!
