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.

  23. 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. . .

  24. 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!
