WIPs out on 8 Feb 2012

Thank you very much to Lee for hosting the inspirational WIP Wednesdays and to Esther for WOW. These linkies have helped me stay focused on always progressing forward, and have led me to discover many fine fellow quilters!


Take a stroll around my house to see which WIPs are up right now at my three work areas. I have a torn ligament in my shoulder, which doesn't like me fmq'ing longer than about 45 minutes a couple times a day, so I have two main projects going at any one time:


FMQ table:


Still in love with my design for the girly edge of "Marissa's Moment",
but that poof between the "lace" and the flower/heart scallops isn't floating my boat.

That's the ticket!
Just half of the fill-in left to do. . .

The center field is all quilted - left the tails in each pinwheel's center
for sewing on the buttons. I was pleasantly surprised that it was not hard at all to get into the center of this twin-sized bedspread.  Maybe a queen wouldn't be so terrible to handle, after all. . . 


Piecing area:


Central section construction!!

I really should have run "Amaretto Cottage" by Scott rather than unilaterally deciding this was what our new bed will have! Good thing he came home last night and gushed about how cool it looks so far and how much he likes the purple center. . .   ::whew::




Nightly TV Time with Scott:


some Baby Janes back-basted for applique




Maverick Throw-In:


Gotta break from the two focal points of the week to throw a back together for "Patriots in Petticoats" as it's going out to Margaret for longarming. My poor local longarmer, Patty, is probably ready to pull my hair out with the load of 6 quilts I gave her!  ;D  


Yes, that is 7 - SEVEN - flimsies out for longarming (gotta love tax returns!), which leaves 7 still hanging in my closet for me to do as my fmq table gets freed up. Those UFO's are GOING DOWN!!!  ;D

Wow, you really are on a roll, and with an injured shoulder! That is impressive. The Amaretto Cottage quilt is looking gorgeous.

Lucy Wilson said...

love it all! you are working through them and I have to agree it is good to be organized, have a plan for working through some WIPS and not be working on 40 projects at once :)I like the fact that you have dedicated areas for different stages of work. Hope your injury heals soon xxx

Esther said...

That is the thing -first acknowledging that there are WIPs to be finished.

This is why I started the WOW, as my WIP *number* was a little vague. Now I face each week with a WIP, and I get to view everyone elses too!

I love the pinwheels! You're going to put buttons in the center? I didn't think of that but it would be pretty.
