Works in Progress Wednesday - July 11, 2012

I've been slowly getting my studio cleaned up and organized. It's slow going, but it's looking good and I'll share some pictures soon. It feels great to be getting some order into that chaos.


New Projects: 
Sophie's Growth Chart: I started making my niece Sophie's growth chart with this stack of fabric...

and these threads...
on this background.


I'll have Sophie's growth chart finished for this Friday's TGIFF! party, which I'm hosting. If you've got a recent finish, I hope you will link up.

I've been documenting the process so that I can do a tutorial as part of the Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop, which was organized by Beth of Plum and June. This is a fun blog hop to meet bloggers who started in 2011 and 2012. So many great new blogs and awesome tutorials to check out. My day on the hop is July 31 and I'm planning on sharing a tutorial for making this growth chart.

Completed Projects: Nada.

Current Projects: 
Hudson's Bay Point Blanket Quilt - I ironed the front, back and batting and started laying it out to pin baste, but ran out of masking tape. The packing tape I tried just wasn't cutting it so I had to put it away until I could get some more masking tape. So annoying!
Selvage pincushions - No progress.

Spiral/Spring seta colour
Wedding quilt
Nine patch colourwash

  8. Have you tried painter's tape for your basting? I sometimes use it on smaller projects... don't know how it would do on your Hudson Bay Quilt.
