Works in Progress Wednesday - The Procraftination Edition

Yes, I'm procrastinating, or procraftinating as I saw recently on an e-card; doing crafty things instead of what I'm supposed to be doing. Except...can you procraftinate from finishing another craft project?

I've been holding off from quilting Su{Brrr}nova and Seeing The Forest For The Trees because I was waiting for the machine insert for my new Gidget table. Santa brought me the table for Christmas, but the insert just arrived on Monday. Woo hoo! I've been adjusting my work set up and getting used to the table. Hopefully this will mean fewer shoulder/neck issues when I'm free motion quilting. No more excuses to get at those quilts now, right?

So how have I been procraftinating?

New Projects:

Something New Sampler: I am having sooo much fun with this quiltalong! On Monday, I shared these blocks:
Bargello
Something New Sampler - Fabric Folding
Fabric Folding

Something New Sampler - Scrappy Strips
Scrappy Strips
This week's blocks are Sashiko and Reverse Appliqué. I'm already done mine and loving them both. I never understood what was the big deal about Sashiko before. Now I get it. :D

Reverse Appliqué
Here's another sneak peak at my trapunto block that I'll be sharing for this Sampler on Monday. You know you want to try it... ;)


Completed Projects: 

Bee Blocks:

Don't Worry {Bee} Happy
Simply Solids - Carmine Group
Current Projects: 

Scrappy Trip Along: A couple more 'test' blocks, but I forgot to take pictures. :)

Su{Brrr}nova: White backing and yummy stripe binding are ready. Trying to psych myself up for de-threading the top and backing before basting so no coloured threads show through the white. Oh yeah, this is why I hated white. Sigh.

Seeing the Forest for the Trees Quilt: Everything's ready to be basted.

  15. I really love those vibrant colours but also the crispness of the white! Your seams are perfect 1/4, so well ironed! I also love your lists and want to make my own but I am afraid ;)...too many projects on my plate! the Sashiko is so dainty. You sure have been busy!

  17. All the blocks you posted are wonderful. I love how you are using rainbow colors for the Something New Sampler. It is going to look stunning put together! Procraftinate is such a great term. I procraftinate from finishing other projects all the time, especially once I reach the basting stage :D
