WIP Wednesday #38

Welcome to another WIP Wednesday! I've been productive this week. How about you?

Completed:
Modern Meadow. I'm doing a Kermit-the-frog "Yaaaaayyyy!" right now. Arms flailing and everything.

Ongoing projects:

Skill Builder Sampler Quilt-Along - currently caught up
Well, here's my bowtie block. Eh, not loving. I was hesitant to use white as a background for any of these blocks, but I did it anyway, and now I'm regretting it. It looks kind of washed out and boring next to the other blocks. I'll probably either redo this one or scrap it.

Summer Sampler Series
How much do you love this Evening Star block? It was so much easier than I expected! And it's beautiful! You can check out the tutorial on Kate's blog, and hop over to Faith's for today's block.

Farmer's Wife Quilt-Along - currently caught up
I didn't do my usual Tuesday Farmer's Wife post yesterday because I wanted to post my Modern Meadow finish, but I did three blocks again this week, including Century of Progress (above). I'll post about all of them with next week's batch.


Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Hexing Around (for Do. Good Stitches)
Hope Valley (the original Supernova)

No progress:
Kaleidoscope QA
Secret project (on hold while I reconsider fabric selections)
Figgy Pudding quilt
Wonky Log Cabin

This week's stats:
New projects - 0
Completed projects - 1
Currently in progress - 10

I love your modern meadow quilt! The solids you used play off each other in a great way! Totally in love!

Linz said...

I love your SBS blocks! I agree about the white background, but I still love it! They are all beautiful! And that Farmer's Wife block is AWESOME!!!

I wouldn't scrap the bow tie block either.
Love the Evening Star block, it looks great.
The Modern Meadow quilt looks wonderful, congratulations on finishing it!

Kylie Lloyd said...

The bow tie block is definitely my favorite of the skills builder blocks.

I love the quilt you have finished.

Lisa Ann said...

All of the blocks are beautiful. I cant wait to see the Skill Builder when it is complete. The Meadow quilt is very pretty!

Hi there I am new to all this blogging thing but getting there slowly..... ahh what is WIP wednesday? I havent been able to figure it out... eek dumb huh?

Brigitte Heitland said...

I love your work, but I especially love the block you have posted from the summer sampler series. Both color and fabric choices are great!

Patchwork and Play said...

IMHO I like the bow tie block- even though it is lighter is overall colour, I don't think it is out of place at all. Maybe see how you feel when you have more made? And Evening Star is going on my 'to-do' list! Beautiful!

Debbie said...

Modern Meadow is just lovely....so, so nice!

Melinda said...

Wow, a finish! I'm jealous Lee! All of mine seem so far from finishing! Your SBS and FW blocks are looking so great. I LOVE that Evening Star! I may have to incorporate that one into something.

Elizabeth D. said...

Thanks for the visual - I love Kermit, so that gave me a good laugh :) I really dig your Century of Progress block! And your Modern Meadow finish is really great, too! Maybe it will inspire me to finally use some of my Modern Meadow...

Tiffany said...

Ooo I really like your modern meadow quilt - very classic and lovely!

Kati said...

Just love your Modern Meadow quilt. All your blocks look great this week, especially the one for the summer sampler.

Barbara said...

Your Evening Star block is gorgeous (:

Diane said...

Your varrious block projects all look great!

Bree said...

I kind of like the white background, and if you use it again for a couple of the blocks, it won't look out of place.

Love your Century of Progress block, the colors & prints are great together!

#38? You know every week now I hope I'll have to miss this, for a good reason! :)

Leanne said...

Your blocks are wonderful!

noga quilts said...

Love your Modern Meadow quilt. It is both modern and beautiful! The evening star block is amazing. You are very productive, and have time for organizing this WIP event too, thanks so much!

Kathy said...

Thanks for hosting WIP Wednesday and for such an inspiring blog! I love how Century of Progress turned out - I'm gearing up for that one myself. And the Evening Star block is really pretty, I may have to try that one.

kwiltmakr said...

Your have been busy! Love the progress your making. I am still away from my sewing machine and can't wait to get back to it so I can sew. Not able to look at blogs very often either and I sure miss all the good stuff.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Everything looks wonderful;as usual Lee...love the Modern Meadow quilt....gorgeous!!

Emalee said...

Love that Modern Meadow. I almost feel like a contented cow munching clover. Really, Lee, it's beautiful.

Alli said...

Your Modern Meadow quilt is fantastic! I really like the natural solid for the background. :)

April (Polkadot Sparrow) said...

Everything is beautiful but your last two blocks are really something. I love how you're using black in your one project. But sparingly. So it's still colorful but also mega-sharp with the black.

Emma said...

Your finish is wonderful. I'm laughing picturing the happy dance a la Kermit. Too fun.

Christie, Describe Happy said...

Your Modern Meadow quilt is incredible!! Way to go -- must be a great feeling!

Laura said...

I don't think the bowtie block looks kind of washed out and boring next to the other blocks at all. If anything, I think it balances them because the white solid complements your green and purple solid backgrounds.

I adore that Evening Star block too. I'm looking forward to making it!

Suzanne said...

I like your bowtie block - the white adds a bit of calmness to the other blocks. I have a few blocks I'd like to rip out and re-do (shade/color not what I'd hope), but I figure by the time we all get 52 blocks completed, there will be places for all sorts of blocks! And if, at the end we don't like something, we can rip it out then or make a new one.

You HAVE had a productive week. Just the opposite of me! I'm glad you changed the fabric layout in FW Century of Progress. I kept thinking it was a mistake in the book. I don't know if I was or not, but I wish I had changed my fabric placement too. Yours makes much more sense!

Angela {fussycut} said...

Everything looks great! I especially love that star, what an amazing block. I need to try that one out myself. :)

Cristin said...

Lee, I ADORE your Hope Valley quilt top! I don't really care for the fabric seperately, but TOGETHER... they look fabulous! Can't wait to see how you quilt it! And I like the bow-tie block with white! You should keep it :-) I'm adding some white to my FWQAL blocks.... I think it gives the eye a nice spot to rest every now and then... amongst all the teeny tiny pieces and blocks! Cheers!

traceyjay said...

such gorgeous projects friend! (and YAAAAYYY!!! on the finish!)

amandajean said...

How much do I love the evening star block? An awful lot!!! It's oh-so-lovely!

Leila said...

Lovely Evening Star block. I am counting down the days until school starts. Hopefully I will be able to fit in some more sewing time.

I am going to have to respectfully disagree with you. :) The bow-tie block looks great! Ok, I might be biased and I love me a white background, but don't throw it out yet.

I am going to have to wave my arms around in the air the next time I have a finish! YAAAAAAYYYY! Love it.

CrafterBerly said...

Love these! I think the bow tie block looks great, and I especially like the evening star colors.
