WIP Wednesday: Happy 2016!

Happy new year, everyone! As always at this time of year, I’m so happy to be back to my normal routines. I enjoy the holidays as much as the next girl, but I’m actually one of those who’s happy to get the Christmas tree taken down and say goodbye to the holiday chaos. The house has been nice and quiet and peaceful this week, I’ve been going to the gym, doing some cleaning and organizing … restoring order has been good for my soul. : )

And of course I’ve been sewing! My Greek Key quilt is just about done and I’m looking forward to getting it out there to you as a quilt-along on We All Sew. Unfortunately this is one of those projects that doesn’t look like much while it’s in progress. LOL. So I apologize for the lack of eye candy this week, but I promise the finished quilt will be more than the sum of its parts.

What are you working on this week? Got any big sewing plans for the new year? Let’s see them!

    Lee, what do you mean a "lack of eye candy? Your Greek Key blocks are terrific–and the quilt will be amazing, I'm sure. Happy New Year to you and your crew!

    I'm with you! The past few days I've enjoyed clearing stuff out and having a good clean. My house looks so much bigger without the decorations! The Greek key blocks look great and I look forward to seeing the finish. Happy New Year Lee!

    Hi Lee, I am making the Fair Isle Christmas quilt…using all Kona cottons. I would prefer to not wash my fabrics. I colour tested and none of the reds/corals/or green seem to bleed. Any words of wisdom? Can I go ahead without washing the strong colours, and not have them bleed, once the quilt is made up? thank-you Charlotte
