WIP Wednesday: A Solid Plan

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Whew, for the first time in weeks, I’m finally feeling relief from a hundred deadlines breathing down my neck. In fact, I might actually be getting caught up. Maybe. Knock on wood.

This week, I spent some time planning my Modern Solids Challenge quilt, using Denyse Schmidt’s Modern Solids for Free Spirit.

After a lot of hemming and hawing about my design, I’ve finally got a plan and I’ve started cutting fabric. More on my Modern Solids Challenge quilt tomorrow!

My Flower Power quilt in Heather Ross’s Far Far Away 2 fabric line is coming along nicely. This quilt has been promised to my 5-year-old, but as I said on Instagram, I am mighty tempted to steal it away from her! Hop over to my guest post yesterday on Sara’s blog, Sew Sweetness, for more details about this quilt, which is from the book A Quilter’s Mixology by Angela Pingel.

And finally, I’m thinking about doing a sew-along for my newest pattern, Fair Isle. What say you, blog peeps, any interest? Would that motivate you to finish it in time for Christmas? : ) At any rate, today is the last day the Fair Isle pattern is on sale! Tomorrow it goes up to its usual price of $7.99 for the PDF pattern (hard-copy patterns are coming soon). So if you’re interested in a potential sew-along, don’t miss out!

    I love QALs! I bought the Fair Isle pattern, the fabric is set to be delivered tomorrow, and I told myself I need to finish a quilt or two or three before I start anything new…but…I really want to make this one (obviously!) so if you did a QAL I'd be right there with you!

    YES I want to sew along! I have been needing to fill the sew along gap since the Texas one wrapped up and that way I might get it done by Christmas!

    YES! I would love a quilt along! I already bought the background fabric, just need to buy the rest of it. I really want to get this done by Christmas, or at the very least by spring. 🙂
