Works in Progress Wednesday - April 11, 2012

We had a really nice, low-key and relaxing Easter. It felt weird not to be running around trying to get a million things done. Nice! I missed last week's WIP Wednesday so I've got two weeks to account for this week.

New Projects: None. I've got fabric picked out for four projects and it's taking all my willpower to hold off cutting into them. I'll be joining Rhonda's Finish-Along in the hopes that it will give me some much needed motivation to finish off some of my projects.

Completed Projects: 
Colour My World Black - Tried fabric folding and trapunto and they both worked! Yay!

Black Velvet Band
Current Projects:
Mod 1600
Mod 1600 - It's done except for the label. I'll be sharing it this Friday when I host TGIFF! I'm very, very happy with how this quilt turned out. I think I love the back as much as the front! Here's a sneak peek of the front...

Cream and black modern minis - No progress.

FMQQAYGQAL/QAYGFMQQAL - The next five blocks are done and I'll be sharing them tomorrow. I'm getting itchy to finish this quilt! Only one row to go and then it's attaching the blocks together. 

Chop Suey - Pulled it off the design wall while I make some more transitional blocks. 

Modern Block Monday Sampler - Two weeks, two blocks!

Parisian Star
Modified On The Fence
Red and Tan Amish Wedding Ring
Spiral/Spring seta colour
Wedding quilt
Nine patch colourwash

WIP Wednesday Recap:
New projects: 0
Completed projects: 1
Current projects: 6
On Hold/UFO: 15
