My WIP Wednesday #5


Busy WIP weeks  :)    Taking Charming Love to the long-arm studio tomorrow for my learning time. I pieced this top in February 2009 (Really???)

It's not a priority UFO finish at all, but it's being used as a training piece to gain skill for one of my current top priorities.  I just loved the charm pack - brought it home and combed through my stash for some friends to put them with. Love how it turned out. :D


Was awake more than an hour in the middle of the night, thinking of what I wanted to do with the borders. . .  


::Go Back To Sleep, Already!::




Adding a Label to a quilt my cousin made for me about 20 years ago before taking my little pile to meet up with an appraiser at the public library. (Fun!)







I don't think it shows in the photo, but she used pastel green thread on the checkerboard sections, pink on the hearts, yellow on the tulips, and white for all her stitch-in-the-ditch. 




Will be satin-stitching 20 owl bodies for Devon's graduation quilt this week: 










And here are the charity quilt finishes from this past week:

You're really getting through those projects! I stay awake at night planning quilts too! You're lucky to be able to have long arm lessons. I haven't found any where near me that will do that. I really like the pinwheel wheelchair quilt, it's so striking.

I'm up in the middle of the night too....always thinking of a new quilt. Your long-arm work looks great. Keep up the good work!

Leanne said...

Lovely projects! I am envious that you are able to take long arm lessons, I bet it is great fun.

Debbie said...

What great projects! And WOW about all the quilt tops you have done!

Di said...

Aha! So I'm not the only quilter struck with inspiration (or quilter's block!) in the middle of the night. What a wonderful array of quilts you've been working on - makes me feel quite inadequate. Well done!

Lee said...
