Works in Progress Wednesday - March Edition

I shudder to think what's going to happen as I update my WIP list for the first time in six weeks. It feels like there's been some start-itis around here and very little finish-itis. Let's see...

New Projects:

Hard Core: I've renamed Burst of Colour to Hard Core because I made the medallion with my broken wrist. If that doesn't say that I'm a hard core quilter, what does? Also, I find it looks a little like the core of the earth...if you squint, turn your head to the left, stand on one foot and close your right eye. ;) When I shared the name with a friend, she pointed out to me that people might make the connection to porn. LOL!

Hard Core
Snow Dyeing: Fun, fun, fun! My first snow dye experiment went well so that when we got a dump of snow yesterday, I took advantage to snow dye some more fabric in a cooler palette. It's still batching right now, but I'll post pictures soon.

Completed Projects:

Sewing Machine Cover: I was feeling a little rusty on my free motion quilting skills so I decided to make a sewing machine cover to practice before tackling Su{Brrr}nova and Seeing The Forest For The Trees (you say, I also say procraftinating). Now that the cast is off, I'll need to practice again. Soon Su{Brrr}nova, soon!

Current Projects:

Something New Sampler: All but one block is quilted. Here are the two newly quilted ones since Friday.

Scrappy Trip Along: I've received most of the blocks from my Simply Solids bee mates. They are fabulous and I'll share them soon.

Kingston quilt: Pulled it off the On Hold/UFO Mash-up list a couple of days before I broke my wrist and decided to restart it and do one block a month. I was partially through the first block that fateful Wednesday. I will share more about this one soon.

Scrap{Bee} Quilt: As wonky piecing was about the only piecing I could do with the cast on, I made four more improv pieced blocks. Now I'm just waiting for two blocks more from bee mates and I'll be able to piece the top.

Su{Brrr}nova: No progress.

Seeing the Forest for the Trees QuiltNo progress.

  5. Procraftinating! luv it. Hey, the first ytwo photos have some similarities! cool

  6. Are you sure you had a broken wrist!! You've gotten more done than me! Love the name change too! I finally started piecing a couple of trees this week. Yay!

  7. Start-itis must be going around! I can't wait to see your new snow-dyed fabrics!!

  8. I'm always amazed with how much you have going on and how much you get done! I don't have kids at home and I'm not as productive as you, I'm taking notes! I love all your projects but my favorite remains to be Hardcore! <3

  10. Love all those WIPs! Especially the hard core quilt, it is just gorgeous!

  11. Great snow dyeing results! I have dyed fabric for decades and my snow dyeing was a pathetic attempt. I may have to try again though as yours is another in a line of great successes lately in blogland.

  12. Everything looks great! I think you qualify as a hard core quilter making all that with your wrist!

  13. Ever heard of quilt p*rn? Your work is fantastic, that wrist didn't slow you down much ...
