Works in Progress Wednesday - January 25, 2012
Yay, it's been another productive week. It helps that the temps outside were in the -20 degrees Celsius, which means I avoid going out as much as possible. It also helped that I got a couple of unexpected evening/afternoon quilt sessions in. I won't say no to that!
New Projects: None - phew. After last week's start-itis, I think I need a serious case of finish-itis.
Wedding Blanket Quilt - I finished my friend's wedding blanket quilt! Yay!
Colour My World Challenge - Made great progress this week. I finished the swirling octagon below. Although I don't have photos of this, I did finish the side and corner pieces. I still have one other section to add before sandwiching it and quilting it.
FMQQAYGQAL/QAYGFMQQAL - First four blocks are done! Yay! As usual, I put my own tweaks on it by quilting onto the block borders. Unfortunately, it gave poor Laura, our fearless QAL leader, a heart attack because her quilt-as-you-go technique requires that space to be unquilted. Oops! Not to worry though, the QAYG technique I used for the boys' Bottled Rainbow quilts will work beautifully. Phew! I'd hate to be kicked out of my first QAL! Now that would really start a blog war and damage Commonwealth relations, wouldn't it? ;)
Chop Suey - While I was piecing the swirling octagon for my Colour Challenge, I pieced all of these strip sets. I've since cut and ironed the blocks. The result? A whopping 100 blocks. That's just crazy!
Micah's Growth Chart - Still staring at it. I think I want to take the backing off, do some satin stitching and some FMQ to stabilize the fire panel before putting the backing back on. I'm worried that if I don't, the growth chart will warp like Daniel's did. I hate using the seam ripper. Sigh!
