WIP Wednesday: Full Color

WIPWednesday
Welcome to WIP Wednesday! It was yet another crazy week for me, but I'll spare you the details and get straight to the sewing.

I finished two projects this past week—my Art Gallery Prism Floor Pillow, and one that I have yet to post about (but it's coming). So I don't have a lot of "progress" pictures to show this week. But how about more Summer Sampler blocks?

Summer Sampler blocks
I went a little crazy with the color for my Modern Sampler Class bundle, and I'm so happy I did. I also decided to take a chance and make every block with a different colored background, and I really love how it's turning out. Two more blocks to go, and then the class is done already! I'll miss sewing with these ladies every Monday night. : )

Bathroom reno
And the bathroom project is finally nearing completion as well. I just love my brand-new vintage bathroom. LOL. (Disregard the duct tape. I'm told that will be going away soon.)

What have you been working on? Link up your works-in-progress. Here are 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 wonderful week!

(P.S. My Art Gallery Fat Quarter Gang giveaway is still open—head here to enter to win a bundle of Art Gallery's new line Carnaby Street!)

Love the block with the gray background the best.

OPQuilt said...

Hey, that bathroom of yours is looking great. I'm impressed that you got any sewing done. I love watching people work on my house. Better than TV. Or internet. They're so darn productive while I just sit there. (But I do APPRECIATE them--does that count?)

Terrific set of summery squares, there!

I love the idea of using a different background fabric for each block. It really adds a fun new element to the blocks.

Ophelia said...

I love the blocks in solids. I'd like to do some myself. But there just aren't so many quilt shops here in Austria than there are in the US. And I think ordering online is difficult since I want the colours to match those of my curtains...
