I have lots of W.I.P’s at the moment… a bit to many! So I am letting you know that I am trying to finish at least 4 (maybe 5) of those first before I will start a new one. OK, no promises! I am just stating an intention!
Here is the update on the W.I.P’s on my to-finish-list. First of all I did some more FMQ on the “Growing blocks” quilt in the shocking pink and yellow.
I have done about 1/3 this week. Hope to finish the FMQ and add the binding next week. I have set myself the goal of “one spool a day” or more if I feel like it. 1 Spool is not much, but it is manageable on days I do not feel like it. I just want this quilt finished!
Now another W.I.P. you have not seen in a while! The red Cloud Nine Quilt!
I backed it with a solid red and added large stippling FMQ in a bright blue thread. The next pictures are a bit “bleached” as the sun was sooooo bright! (we are in the middle of a heat wave!)
Of course I did not have enough thread (I was one spool out!) to finish, so the FMQ was not done at the moment this picture was taken! (Status report: FMQ is now finished, binding has been added, “oh and ah” was said! ;-) I love it!!! )
And the back:
And here is a W.I.P. you have not ever seen, just maybe read about! Remember that I broke BOTH my sewing machines in ONE day? I only had to wait about a week before I could use them again (thanks to hard-working B.I.L.), but the create-a-quilt-urge did not leave the house with the machines. So I had to create something… I wrote up some of the tutorial (still to finish) for the On Point Cloud Nine Quilt and I cut up a stack of fabric and laid it out neatly on the design boards that I made in January or February.
The day after the Janome came back home I put this quilt together. It is now a quilt top 45″ x 60″. Basting will start after the weekend.
The blocks are of my own design.
These colours are also a bit washed out due to the bright sun. I promis better pictures one of these days.
Do not know which of my other W.I.P. will be next on the list, we will see which one “speaks to me”! (“finish meeeeeee”)
I am off to bed now, boys and girls! Hope the heat will not bother me that much!
“Slaap lekker allemaal” Good night you all! (Loose translation)
