WIP Wednesday: Productivity!

IMG_7830-1

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.

You can learn more about it and pre-order your Quilt Planner right here. I’ve already ordered mine! Be sure to watch Stephanie’s video about the planner at the top of the page—what she says really resonates with me, and I’m sure it will with you too!

Okay, so what are you working on this week? Let’s see it!

    Your geese are beautiful! Love the perfect points on them. Sharing a WIP that still needs to be quilted down…but the basic pattern for our Thanksgiving "Give Thanks and Praise" quilt is done (which feels so. so. good.). Thanks for hosting this week!

    oh my gosh! For once, I made sure that I ordered my Erin Condren planner in plenty of time for the upcoming year, and now I'm so sorry I did. I am still going to check out that quilter's planner though. It looks so neat!

    I love the flying geese!!! Yours look perfect, of course. I love quilting your tops, Lee because everything is pieced so beautifully. And I can't wait to try the Greek blocks. Thank you so much for sharing my planner project! It's turned into a fabulous community project with over 50 bloggers and 10 designers contributing. It's definitely my passion project, and I am so grateful for the wonderful response it has received in our community….QUILTERS ARE AWESOME and they sure know how to support one of their own. Hugs and gratitude!! Steph @ Late Night Quilter
