I’ve had a busy week of teaching, finishing projects, and starting new ones!
The flying geese project that I started last week is done—you’ll be seeing more of this, plus complete project instructions, on Olfa’s website in a few weeks!
Next up: I’m starting to work on my next quilt-along! It’s a Greek key quilt, and you guys will not believe how fast and easy these blocks are. I always thought it would be a feather in my cap to design a quilt with ZERO seams that have to line up, and this one might be the closest I’ve ever come. So newbies take note, this will be a good one for you. : ) Let’s all do it together! The quilt-along will be starting on Bernina’s website in the near future—but I’ll give you plenty of advance notice here, so that you can get your fabric together and be ready to start it along with me.
Finally, I have something exciting to share with you: My friend Stephanie from Late Night Quilter is coming out with a Quilter’s Planner! This planner includes everything you need to organize your life and plan and track your sewing projects, plus it includes bonus block instructions and quilt patterns. Such a great idea, isn’t it?
Inside the spiral-bound planner, you’ll find monthly calendars, weekly calendars, sewing project planning pages, graph paper for quilt designs, a swatch-saver, free-motion quilting practice pages, beautiful and inspiring pull-out artwork, 52 original quilt block designs, AND 8 full quilt patterns, including one from me! (I’ll be blogging more about my pattern that’s included on another day.) All for only $35—an impressive value.
Okay, so what are you working on this week? 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 “Add Your Link” button below, then click on the Instagram icon at the bottom of the screen that pops up. You should then be able to select any of your recent Instagram photos. Where it says “Link,” use the URL of your Instagram feed (for example, my URL is www.instagram.com/lee.a.heinrich). Please hashtag your IG post #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!
