WIP Wednesday: Last-Minute WIPing

Happy Wednesday! And welcome to my week of last-minute scrambling!

Quilt Con quilt
In case you haven't heard, there's going to be an epic modern quilt show at Quilt Con in February, and the deadline to enter is this Friday. Unfortunately, other commitments have kept me from making any quilts specifically to enter in the show—until a few days ago, that is. Five days to create a quilt for the most important modern quilt show to date, with thousands of dollars in prizes on the line? Sure, why not! I don't know if it will be accepted (I don't even know if I'll finish it in time), but I have to at least try. Because yes, apparently I am that crazy.

What's on your to-do list this week? Whatever you're sewing, link it up here! Just remember the rules:
1. Link up any post from the past week that features at least one unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog. (Or grab my WIP Wednesday button for your sidebar.)
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links. Because what fun is a linky party without comments?

Have a great week—get those Quilt Con entries in!

ack! good luck!! i thought about trying to finish another something for the mini quilt portion of it, but decided against it. i did enter 1 quilt to the main part, tho. i have to try not to think about the prizes because i'll be annoyed if i don't get one, when the show will be so big that it would be an honor to just even get in!!!

Gina said...

you make beautiful quilts and i am sure your Quilt Con quilt will be awesome too! Here's hoping you can finish on time!!

Val said...

I can understand that you have to try. Hope it works out.

Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with
hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about setting up
my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

Good luck! I started a quilt, finished the top, but never finished. Maybe we will both finish by Friday! Best of luck!

Shontelle said...

Good luck Lee. As we say in Australia - go hard or go home! You can do it!

Go for it! If for no other reason, the deadline can often inspire fantastic creativity! Love what you've done so far..... :D

Heather said...

Good luck getting your quilt finished!!!

Janice said...

You'll get it done and I'm sure it'll be fantastic!! I think I'm going to be really bummed that I didn't enter anything.

Tessa Marie said...

I admire your ambitious spirit!! I am sure it will be amazing and totally worthy of being entered in the show. Good luck!!

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

Wow - happy quick sewing wishes to you!

You have some great color going on Lee!!

Sharon said...

Good Luck!

Leila said...

Ooops, somehow I commented on your WIP post two weeks ago?!? Good luck finishing up! Are you going to QuiltCon? I was looking at plane tickets and prices have dropped in the last month! :)
My friends gave me a weird look when I said that I would rather spend my vacation money on a trip to a quilting conference than tagging along on my husband's work trip to Hawaii. Tell me I'm not crazy! :) Maybe I am, but I hope to see you and your quilt at QuiltCon. :)

Katy Cameron said...

Good luck with getting it done!

Rachel said...

You can do it! Love the blocks so far.

christaquilts said...

No you are NOT crazy!! I made a couple to enter at QuiltCon also (and finished up last minute too). You'll never know unless you try :-) Good luck!

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
