WIP Wednesday #27

It's Wednesday! Let's talk WIPs again ...

New projects:
One more scrappy placemat
Remember my rainbow placemats for the Make Mine Modern swap? Well, my swap partner Kelly must really like them, because she "commissioned" me to make another one for her in exchange for some Heather Ross Munki scraps. The new placemat will be purple and pink.

Since I'm making one more, I thought I'd put together a tutorial, if there's interest. Anybody want a tute on this? It's a fantastic scrap project! For the prints, the biggest piece I used was 2.5" square, so it's a good way to use up your tinies.

Ongoing projects:
Modern Meadow baby quiltStill being bound. This quilt is clinging to its WIP status for dear life, apparently.

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

On hold:
Blockapalooza
Central Park jelly roll quilt
That Girl quilt-along
Figgy Pudding quilt
Wonky Log Cabin

This week's stats:
New projects - 1
Completed projects - 1 (Supernova)
Currently in progress - 9 (same as last week)

You guys know what to do: 1) Please link to a post from the past week containing a work in progress. Yep, I'm the weirdo who doesn't want a linky full of finishes. : ) It's okay if your post contains finishes, but it must also contain at least one unfinished item. 2) Please link back to my blog in your post. 3) Comment on some of the other links. 4) Enjoy!

How ironic, my wife told me just this past weekend she wants new placemats for the kitchen table.

Those are very nice, and Yes, I'd love to see a tutorial... In fact, if you'd like someone to "try it out" before you post it, I'd be willing to play guinea pig!!

Please do a "tute" on the placemats. I've been looking for an interesting pattern for placemats and those look like lots of fun. Are they lots of work too?? Oh, my gosh, love the pieces of the intersection quilt. I'm so excited.
