Works in Progress Wednesday - March 29, 2012

Back to winter around here! It didn't feel like I got much accomplished this week, but when I was doing up my WIP report, I found it was still pretty good. Yay!

New Projects: None

Completed Projects: 
Wee Spy Quilt - For my friend's new baby. I also made a coordinating bag to carry it in.

Current Projects:
Modern Jelly Roll 1600 - No progress because I'd run out of black for the backing. I stocked up at the Fabricland sale so I'm hoping to work on this quilt this week. 

Cream and black modern minis - No progress, but now I have basting spray so we're good to go.

Trapunto of a Celtic motif
(motif is from Contemporary
Celtic Motifs by Alex Sherman)
Fabric folding technique
taught by Rami Kim
Colour My World Black - The fabric folding worked! The trapunto worked! I'm almost done this month's challenge...and it was a challenge! Here are a couple of bad photos of the challenge in progress. For those involved in the Colour My World challenge, the linky party for Colour My World Black will go up on Friday. I can't wait to see what you did with this tough colour!

Modern Block Monday Sampler - No block this week. :(

FMQQAYGQAL/QAYGFMQQAL - The next three blocks are done! Yay! 

Chop Suey - Trimmed up the rest of the blocks and started playing with it on the design wall. It's a bit of a disappointment right now, but I'll keep playing with it.

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

Have a great Wednesday, everyone!


  1. I am so impressed with your free motion quilting! I enjoyed reading about you on your last post. It's so fun to learn more about people!

  2. Wow, M-R you've been busy making some beauties! I just can't stop admiring your blocks in the QAYGFMQQAL. Stunning!

  3. wonderful work!!!!! I love that folding piece; where do you find these??
    Your work is so interesting.

  4. Lovely quilting, you make it look so easy.

  5. The fabric folding and trapunto is absolutely amazing! I also really like the info label you added to the baby quilt. Is it laminated?

  6. The fabric folding looks awesome... can't wait to see your block... on Friday!!!!! Really is it already the end of the month? I am still looking for the perfect "background" fabric for my star!! Oh well, it might be next week before I get around to finishing it, trying to finish my Guild challenge... way too many deadlines, but oh so much fun!! Your FMQQAYGQAL/QAYGFMQQAL blocks look amazing!!

  7. Glad to see you are progressing along on just about all fronts, M-R.

  8. You've got some FMQ skills, M-R!
    What's wrong with chop suey? Why are you disappointed? Looks great from here!

  9. I love your black pieces - especially the celtic knot. I agree btw black is a very challenging colour! As others have said, your fmq is great. I think your red and white tree is especially wonderful :)

  10. Nice! Love the FMQ! I'm excited to see your Color My World Black challenge. The back looks cool.
