WIP Wednesday #16

Hey, did I really start this linky 16 weeks ago? Time flies when your WIP list is in the double digits, I guess.

New projects

Project Selvage
Oh, how I wish I could share with you what I'm working on for this! I'm kind of in love with the inspiration for my "line." So far, I'm just sketching away, happy to be getting it on paper. Much more to come on this one.

Ongoing projects

DQS 10
So I have an actual plan now for my swap quilt. Plans are good. Especially when the project in question needs to be done only two weeks from now. Now I just have to, you know, execute the plan. A big thank-you goes to Becky, whose Sunrise Star Pillow was the inspiration for using fussy-cut Parisville in the center of this block.

Operation Stash Reorganization
Made some pretty good progress here. Everything fat-quarter size and up is now on mini-bolts and neatly shelved. Just looking at it makes me happy. But the rest of my sewing room? Not so much. The smaller scraps are everywhere. I hope to have those organized by next week.

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Hope Valley

Completed quilts awaiting binding:
Modern Meadow

On hold for now:
Central Park jelly roll quilt
Figgy Pudding quilt
Wonky Log Cabin

This week's stats:
New projects - 1
Completed projects - 0
Currently in progress - 11 (up one from last week)

So, where are you at this week? Link up and show the world! Don't forget: Link back here, and comment, comment, comment.
