Projects, Projects Everywhere

It's been a long time since I've done a WIP list post and I'm feeling the need for a recap of where I'm at with WIPs/UFOs/PIGs and any other acronyms for projects in the works.

New Projects:

Placemats: These are for the Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild silent auction. I'm trying for 'scrappy sophistication with a backing of fun'.

Fronts:

Backs:

Completed Projects:

Modern Totems: Blogged about here.


Current Projects:

Fibonacci of a Different Kind: This one is just about done. Will hopefully be able to share it on Friday.


Scrap{Bee} 2.0 QuiltThe quilt top is done, the backing is done and it's basting and ready to be quilted.


Carsick/Scrappy Trip AlongThe last you saw this one, it was the kaleidoscope of colour with all the blocks laid out. The top is done, but no pictures yet. Backing fabrics picked out.
What are you working on this week?

  12. So many things going on! I've been trying to keep up with finishing up PHDs this year. I want to say it "is the year for it" but I think that is every year. This is just the year I jumped on the bandwagon.

  13. I don't know how you can keep track of all these gorgeous projects. But it does look like fun. You can just choose which project you're in the mood to work on. And when you're waiting for something you need to finish one project, you can pick up another. Love those colourful place mats. I do think you have hit the nail on the head with your aim for scrappy sophistication!

  15. The placemats are very sophisticated-beautiful! You sure keep busy with all your projects. The totem finish is wonderful too-great color palette.

  17. Great placemats! I like your Totems project, but you already knew that. Your pinned Scrap Bee looks interesting, too. How many blocks a day did you get done? It looks like it has a lot of energy bound by very light colors. Did you piece serendipitously or keep tight control on both color and pattern of pieces? What I mean by that is I can see they are somewhat Crazy Quilt-centric and I know there are some patterns you can follow so every crazy block is composed of the same shapes. It looks to me like you have different shapes within the knots of color. I am looking forward to seeing how you quilt it.
