Works in Progress Wednesday - October 3, 2012

I'm looking at my crazy-ass WIP list and trying to figure out what I can finish this month for OctoberQuest with TGIFF! I'm very excited that Mad About Patchwork has offered up a couple of gift certificates as prizes and a 10% discount for all participants this month. I think it's going to be fun!

It's been two weeks since my last WIP post so this is a twofer. While it looks like I've done a lot, what this actually means is that I haven't been getting much sleep. Add in that son #3 has a nasty cold and is up 3 or 4 times a night and what you have here is a walking zombie. Not enough hours in the day!

New Projects: The moratorium on starting new projects is barely hanging on by a thread. I'm planning my Don't Worry {Bee} Happy blocks for my month, which is November. I've got to start cutting...

Completed Projects:
Torn Landscape:

Selvage Pincushion: Filled and sewed!

Don't Worry {Bee} Happy Block for September:

Colour My World Orange: My sad little black hole-eating amoeba.

Current Projects: 

Modern Goodness - Finished the top. Next up is the backing using some of the scraps from the front and some quilting in lime green.

Hudson's Bay Point Blanket Quilt - Almost done the quilting! Thank goodness for audio books to alleviate the mind-numbing boredom of straight-line quilting a queen-sized quilt. This one is going to be getting my focus over the next few days.

Spiral/Spring seta colour
Wedding quilt
Nine patch colourwash

  1. love the torn landscape...all of your projects are just great. I don't have a post this week. Just not enough progress anywhere to interest anyone,lol. Next time!!

  2. Wow, you've been productive! I so hear you on the mind numbing straight line quilting. Every time I do it I think "not again" but then a perfect project comes along and it just needs it. That triangle top is so great and I love your idea of quilting in the green.

  3. Glad you are working away! Onward and upward! lol

  4. Love the modern quilt with the brither green. I made a quilt very similar to that recently. =)

  5. All great and I can't wait to see the lime green quilting - how gorgeous!!

  6. I am loving the torn landscape and the green quilt!! Awesome!!

  7. Great work, M-R! Oooh...I can hardly wait to see your Bay blanket!!

  8. Your don't worry block is so cool! Still loving the selvage pincushion...

  9. Your WIP list looks like mine :) I love that Modern Goodness top . . . very beautiful colors.

  10. I love your triangle quilt. The mixture of grays with that lime green is great.

  11. Your torn landscape looks beautiful. I like the texture you've created. I also like the lime and grey on your triangle quilt. I love the pop of color the lime adds.

  12. Lots of lovely work but I especially love the torn landscape ,beautiful!

  13. can't say as I ever did a queen sized quilt by machine - just by hand and that a few years back... I am concentrating on smaller things -- and your landscape is so interesting - I really must try something along those lines...

  14. oh my gosh, that torn landscape is about the coolest thing I have seen!

  15. Love the green/gray quilt--what an awesome color combination. And you're brave to keep such an accurate list of all your wips/ufos. I only count my most recent ones so I don't feel so overwhelmed!

  16. Beautiful work as always. I hope your son gets better soon so you can get some sleep.

  17. I like your lime green and grey triangles quilt. I am in awe of people brave enough to make these! I love them but am chicken to do one!

  18. I love, love, love that triangle quilt!! Awesome.
