You know, I always have a lot of WIPs going. What I don't usually have are a lot of finished—but unquilted—tops. When I finish a top, I feel like I'm in the homestretch—so there's no point in letting it sit once it gets to that point! I almost always manage to quilt them right away.
Which is why it's so odd that right now I have no less than four unquilted tops cluttering up my sewing room. Unacceptable! I might need to have a Christmas vacation quilt-a-thon to catch me up.
Geometric Slide pattern from Vintage Quilt Revival. But instead of using the Double Z block, as Faith did in her pattern, I used one of Katie's blocks from a different project the book: the Geometric Star block. Geometric Slide + Geometric Star = Geometric Awesomeness. In fact, maybe that's what I'll call this one. And this demonstrates one of my favorite things about Vintage Quilt Revival: You can swap blocks within the project patterns, so there are an almost infinite number of ways to make these projects very much your own. Of course, now I just have to figure out how to quilt this puppy.
Monica Solorio-Snow's Winterkist line. I gave them all free reign to make whatever star block they wanted, and they really did it up, don't you think?
Giant Vintage Star quilt made for me by the ladies of the Sew Beautiful bee. In fact, maybe I should set a goal to get them all quilted by January 1! Is that too ambitious?
So, what are you working on this week?
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—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!
BTW, thanks for all of your feedback last week on the order of the links. I think I'm going to stick with reverse order for now—so the most recent links will appear at the beginning of the list. This gives everybody a chance to be at the beginning of the list for at least a short time. But you never know when I might get the urge to switch things up again—I do like to keep you all on your toes!
