WIP Wednesday #23

Gettin' WIPpy with it ...

New projects:

These strip sets are hoping to become teeny pieced squares. This little project is coming together quickly, so you should be seeing more of this one very soon.

Ongoing projects:

Supernova Quilt-Along
Piecing the back as we speak! Can't wait to show it off!

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

Completed quilts awaiting binding:
Modern Meadow

On hold ... yeah, yeah.
Blockapalooza
Central Park jelly roll quilt
Figgy Pudding quilt
Wonky Log Cabin

This week's stats:
New projects - 1
Completed projects - 0
Currently in progress - 10 (up one from last week)

Oh, one more thing—I just have to be a proud mommy for a minute and show off this "quilt" that my daughter made! Future fabric designer right here, amiright? : ) I didn't suggest that she do this or give her any direction—this was all her. I love how some of her "prints" are even cut off at the edges of the "blocks," just like they would be with actual cut pieces of fabric. How I love this kid!

Okay, let's see 'em! Link up any post featuring a work in progress. Don't forget to link back to my blog and please comment on some of the other links.

My Sweet Prairie said...

You are so bad! TEN in progress!? I have to stop that madness. lol : ) I recently heard a presentation by a woman who said she does ONE project at a time only, ever. Oh how I covet her! Once my current commissions are done, I'm taking things one at a time. I can't stand this multitasking pressure.

p.s. Thanks for doing this WIP wed Lee. ; ) It's lots fun.

You know you're going to have to turn that design into a real quilt don't you?! Get searching for fabrics that match, or scan that lovely picture in and then you can print your little lady's exact design onto fabric!

I feel like such a slacker I shouldn't even link up this week...ugh!

I can't wait to see what those first pieces are going to become. Those colors are just gorgeous.

Your daughter's picture is great! Most kids won't make their designs run off the page/area like that, that's fantastic she notices small details like that!

I'll just have to check out what everyone else has been up to this week but I have nothing to show. Nothing. Oh, well, we all have those weeks once in a while, right?

felicity said...

Your kiddo's quilt fabric is wonderful. I would totally buy it! Obviously a chip off the ol' block as my Mom would say.

Karen said...

I have no WIP today so it's a decision making wednesday for me, please click on 'opinions please...' above to have your say on which direction my next project will take! :o)

Sarah @ FairyFace Designs said...

Your daughter looks like she's got the whole quilt design thing sorted already! Those little strips look lovely, can't wait to see what they turn into :-)

Meredith said...

Love the colors of your new project! Can't wait to see more!

Also, your daughter's quilt is awesome! Love how attentive to detail she is-- like all the different patterns, the pieces cut out, and like you said, the images cut off-- you deff have an artist on your hands!

kheli said...

Love the linky-Wednesday. Something pretty (some things pretty!) to look forward to!

Kelli said...

Thanks for making me laugh with the WIPpy comment! And I love your daughter's picture. How precious! My kids like to get on my Electric Quilt program and design, but they've never just made their own.

Kimberly White said...

I really like your daughter's quilt! Looking forward to seeing that back of your supernova quilt!
