Works in Progress Wednesday - January 18, 2012
This was a week of starts - 3 in fact! BUT, I finished a very old WIP and I pulled one of my projects out of the UFO pile so I guess you could say...5 steps forward, right? Right!
Clockwork Orange - Sooo glad to finish this one!
Wedding Shawl - A friend asked me for advice on getting her wedding shawl made into a quilt. After seeing some photos, asking a gazillion questions and taking a big gulp, I offered to stipple quilt it. It's pretty much done and I'll share it on Friday for TGIFF!, which is being hosted by the kanocious (that's a word I made up as a kid -- it means awesome ;) ) KristyLou!
FMQQAYGQAL - I'll do a post about this one tomorrow, but it's started and I super excited about how it's coming together so far.
Chop Suey - This sounds crazy, but one of the main reasons I pulled this UFO out is because I've already pieced two more of my Wee Spy tops as leader/ender projects. That technique seriously rocks! I don't have enough batting for all these Wee Spy tops though so I need something that will take a little longer to finish. Chop Suey is a workshop I took with Joan Ramsay Burn...um...two children ago. Her Chop Suey fabrics looked great, mine did not so I put it away in the deep dark recesses of my studio. It's a perfect leader/ender project and scrap buster project (for Rachel's Scrap Attack Quiltalong?) though. Hopefully making it a 'side' project will help me not to focus on how much I dislike some of the fabrics. I will embrace the scrappy look!

Tangled Garden - Started pulling out my old quilting stitches. I think some of the practicing I've been doing in my FMQQYAGQAL will help me with this one.
