WIP Wednesday: Fabric-y Goodness


Well, I didn’t get in much (any) sewing time this week—I was prepping for classes and traveling to teach. But I DID manage to make some awesome fabric purchases. So here’s some Wednesday pretty for you. They’re almost WIPs, after all. They’re in the progress of becoming works-in-progress, I guess? : )

My LQS (Patched Works in Elm Grove, Wisconsin) stocks every one of the new colors of Carolyn Friedlander’s Architecture crosshatch prints! So how could I not stock up?

Picked up a few Alison Glass prints at Bear Patch Quilting in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, while I was there to teach a class this weekend. (Thanks, ladies of the Minneapolis MQG, for a wonderful weekend!)

And finally, I picked up some Honor Roll by Anna Maria Horner. What I love about Anna Maria’s fabric is that it often doesn’t look like it should be a collection, and yet somehow it works very well as exactly that. Some other fabric lines out there look kind of …. formulaic. Anna Maria’s never look formulaic. Still thinking about what I can do with this gorgeous line.


1. Link up any blog post or Instagram photo from the past week that features an unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. To link an Instagram photo, click the Instagram icon at the bottom of the link-up screen, and use the URL of your IG feed as the link (for example, my URL is www.instagram.com/lee.a.heinrich). Please hashtag #wipwednesday.
3. If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
4. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!

    You really hit the nail on the head when talking about AMH's fabrics. I don't always like the individual prints, but somehow I love the collection as a whole! How DOES she do it?
