WIP Wednesday 2016 10 26

Squeezing in fifteen minutes here and there every day with some fun projects.

  1. Granny Square Quilt for my Honey.  I made him (yes, literally) participate in the trip to the fabric shop with me to pick colors.  His “I want chestnut, red, mustard yellow, green with black centers” was impossible to navigate given the diversity of Kona color choices.  He made shopping easy…10 minutes into the store, we were at the counter getting the bolts cut.

  2. Sugar Mountain for my BFF’s 50th birthday.  Shhhh…it is a surprise!  Having fun with this one.  I wanted low volume, neutral grays and I hit that objective!  So so so many HSTs to trim.  Took forever.  Not to mention working on Granny at the same time.  Don’t want Honey to think I am favoring one quilt over the other (which I am…shhhh).  🙂

  3. Pink Pineapple for the loving hospital staff who took such great care of me after surgery.  Heart the medical profession!

Star Light Star Dark Finish, Almost

I’m really happy that I finished the quilting of the Star Light Star Dark QAL.  I had a great time with the straight line quilting, albeit I think this quilt deserved a few more swirls and waves if time had permitted.  Not all my lines are straight and I hit the cut button on my new machine more often than I meant to, but nonetheless I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.   The whole process was much fun and my dining room table made it easy as a great sliding surface to help eliminate the bulk of the quilt as I worked on it.

Since this has an east coast finish time, I’m posting the top as is though I hope to run home after work and yoga and finish the binding.  I’ll post another picture as soon as it is “done done”.
