WIP Wednesday: For Starters


This past week was all mostly starting things and not finishing them. It’s a WIPpy week, I guess.

I’m making some test blocks for a potential new pattern. I like the block a lot, but I’m having trouble making color and print decisions on this one.

Started a gigantic embroidery project—literally. It’s going to be the sign for my booth at Quilt Market (hopefully, assuming I can finish it).

I am thrilled to be making something from this beautiful new book, The Paper-Pieced Home, from Penny of Sew Take a Hike, for the book’s blog hop. The blocks in this book are cute, cute, cute! Looking forward to showing you mine.

And these blocks are still taunting me from the design wall. Sigh.

What have you been working on? Don’t be shy, let’s see it!


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!

    I am combining embroidery blocks with possibly log cabin blocks for a winter quilt, just started recently – one block down and about 9 to go? It was a great project to bring in a suitcase to my daughters house for a visit

    The only paper piecing I've done so far are the fractured pineapples that David Duwe taught us to make in a workshop. I hope do a lot more of it!
    My fractured pineapples are in my image in the linky.

    Lee, What size are your Kaleidoscope blocks and are they paper pieced? If so where did you get the paper piecing pattern for the block? Thank so much!!
