WIP Wednesday #20

What? It's Wednesday again? Already?

Unfortunately I don't have a whole lot to show you this week. I spent most of the last week either working on my Project Selvage print or writing quilt-along instructions. But here's what I've got going on at the moment.

New projects:
Make Mine Modern swap
These strips, plus many more, will hopefully become my final item for the Make Mine Modern swap. I've got a plan for these little strips—a plan that is either ridiculously awesome or completely insane, I'm not sure which. Maybe both? I guess the only way to find out is to just make the darn thing and see what happens. Preliminary tests yielded promising results, but I have a history of coming up with grand visions that are either beyond my skill level to execute, or physically impossible to make from mere fabric. Fingers crossed that won't be the case here!

Ongoing projects:
1. Hope Valley, 2. Supernova Fabrics - Arcadia, 3. Supernova Fabric choices, 4. supernova-color-scheme, 5. nova block mosiac, 6. all, 7. I did it!, 8. Cut Pieces, 9. IMG_3037, 10. FlourishingPalms cut blocks, 11. Supernova QA fabrics 2, 12. supernova placement

Supernova Quilt-Along
Some very pretty fabric up there, don't you think? These are all Supernova quilts in the making, and I can hardly wait to see how they all turn out! You can see all this and more in the Flickr group. And no, it's not too late to join! Click here to find the previous posts on fabric requirements and block planning and cutting. Catching up is still very doable. The first set of piecing instructions goes live tomorrow, and I'll be hosting my first quilt-along link up next Tuesday. Come show off what you've gotten done!

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Hope Valley (the original Supernova)

Completed quilts awaiting binding:
Modern Meadow

On hold ... yes, still!
Central Park jelly roll quilt
Figgy Pudding quilt
Wonky Log Cabin

This week's stats:
New projects - 1
Completed projects - 1 (Project Selvage print)
Currently in progress - 10 (same as last week)

So what have you been working on? Link up your WIP posts below—remember to link back to my blog in your post, and please comment on at least a few of the other links. Happy sewing!

Love when people do original things for the swaps. I bet you can pull it off with 'mere fabric'! hee hee! Looking forward to seeing it come to life.

Those supernova fabrics are gorgeous! I'm honored to be included, and can't wait for the next step!
(btw, I see alot of you make those mosaics - how do you do that?)
Thanks for your encouragement with my fabrics and layout!

Looking forward to seeing your Make Mine Modern project. Your stuff is always great.

Diane said...

Look at all those piles of fabric you inspired with your quilt along!

Mitzi said...

The Supernova mosaic is beautiful, there are going to be a lot of beautiful quilts made using that pattern. I have a dumb question though. How do you make a mosaic? I haven't figured out how to do that yet.

I'm going out of town next week for Spring break so I'll be a little behind on my Supernova but that's ok.

Jessica said...

anything with strings is awesome in my book! I'm sure it will turn out gorgeous as usual :)

Kimberly White said...

What beautiful fabric "scraps"! Looking forward to seeing the final project! Happy quilting this week!

Danielle said...

Wow-- you have a ton of ongoing projects. I'm amazed! Before I had a blogging life, I worked on a million at a time, but now that I am trying to get stuff finished, I don't have more than about 4 that are ongoing. You are supergirl... but we already knew that:-)

Live a Colorful Life said...

Hmmm...Pretty curious now about the Make Mine Modern swap! Just finished one project (well, except for the hand quilting), so ready to start with Supernova. Yay!

My Sweet Prairie said...

Kris said...

Hi Lee! I just love your blog. Always look forward to WIP Wednesdays! Love that doll quilt you received with the circles and hand quilting. Stunning! I'm following you now for more great ideas! :) Kris
