WIP Wednesday: My Usual ADHD

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
This week in my world ...

Picnic quilt squaresSo I cut out this whole stack of squares for my picnic quilt.

And that was as far as I got on that one, because I was suddenly overtaken by the urge to do some paper-piecing. : ) 

New WIP
I'm hoping to finish this one in time to enter it in the AQS Modern Quilt Challenge. After Quilt Con, I wasn't sure I wanted to enter another quilt show any time soon. One of my quilts placed, after all, so it's pretty tempting to stop while I'm ahead. : ) But AQS puts on the Grand Rapids show, which is in my hometown, so I guess that's worth a shot. The deadline is August 2, so I need to put the pedal to the metal on this one.

What are you working on this week? Here are the linky 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 the WIP Wednesday button for your sidebar.)
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links.

Oooh, I just made some blocks similar to your paper-pieced ones, except I didn't paper-piece them. I really wish I had. I am interested to see what yours end up in!

I love the fabric choice for the picnic quilt.

Good luck with the quilt challenge. I can't imagine making a whole quilt in a week. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

I love those chicken wire honeycombs!

Katy Cameron said...

Well at least it's pretty and colourful ADHD :oD

Aoife said...

Is that the chicken wire mesh from Oink-A-Doodle-Moo? I love those prints. And I know exactly what you mean about getting distracted in the midst of one project :) I'm hoping that doesn't happen to me for the next couple of weeks!

ChristaQuilts said...

I was looking at Road to California's entry and for the first time they are having a Modern Quilt section. I think your gorgeous Storm at Sea would be a shoe-in for getting in as it is such a beautiful quilt and beautifully done. Have you considered this?

Road is a nationally-ranked show, but is in my backyard. I'll go and take photos of your quilt there, if you decide to enter. Just a thought. . .

FlourishingPalms said...

I hope you get this finished. I entered the AQS modern challenge, but entered my Madrona Road quilt. It's been finished since January! I'm glad YOU like these kinds of deadlines. I do not!

snips said...

Love your paper pieced blocks! Gorgeous colours!

The Sassy Quilter said...

That looks interesting...Here's to speedy quilting. Thanks for the link up!

Shirley said...

Just realized you live in Grand Rapids and I had no idea! I'm in Holland and thought you were this awesome quilter miles away!

Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts said...

I love a project for every mood! I love your paper piecing project!
