Works in Progress Wednesday - February 8, 2012

Wednesday already? I'm happy to report that I think the free motion quilting (FMQ) issues I was having last week have been resolved. Yay! Thank you so much for the encouragement and advice! I gave my machine a really deep clean and oil and things seem to be working much better. I still haven't tried the two pieces that were giving me trouble last week, but I've done some free motion quilting on another project and it seemed to be working fine. Phew!

New Projects: None, but I've been thinking about Good Karma!

Completed Projects: 
Just Me and My Peeps - I finished the binding on this one during the Super Bowl. Woo hoo! I'll share it on Friday when I host TGIFF!, but here's a sneak peek. If you have a recent finish, come link up! 

Current Projects:
Modern Block Monday Sampler - This week was Alleyways by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr. LOVE!

Tangled Garden - Even though all of the quilting is not done on this quilt, I put on the binding (shhh, don't tell the quilt police) so I'd have some handwork to do at my son's skating lessons and my guild meeting. Now all I have left to finish are the remaining flowers and the dirt french braid. I had this one pegged to finish for the Quilting is Murder UFO challenge, which is due by this Saturday. It's going to be tight...

Micah's Growth Chart - No progress.

Chop Suey - No progress.

FMQQAYGQAL/QAYGFMQQAL - I've done the next four designs and I'll share the progress tomorrow. Loving this challenge!

On Hold/UFO Mash-up:
Wee Spy quilts - 2
Red and Tan Amish Wedding Ring
Spiral/Spring seta colour
Wedding quilt
Nine patch colourwash
