WIP Wednesday: Lotsa Stuff

Oh my.  I have three projects going on simultaneously.  This feeling is probably why I only dated one person at a time (before I got married – duh).

I have the second Star Wars quilt basted and ready to quilt. I am hoping to have it quilted by Saturday evening so I can finish the binding at the guild meeting Sunday morning. Of course, if I finish it sooner, all the better!

I decided to make a Turning Twenty quilt (in twin size) out of a FQ bundle I bought a while ago.  I was originally going to use these FQs for a quilt for my bed, but I really like Faceted Jewels and don’t see me wanting to take it off the bed for a while.  The soft aqua color is just the right shade for the Wellspring Living recovery house, and I’m happy to contribute a 3rd quilt to them.  Here’s the blocks ready to be sewn into a top. I bought some yardage of Kona solids in an aqua and chocolate when I was planning a king-size quilt, so I think that will be the border.

I am also piecing scrappy bits together for that mystery scrappy project (still working on the gold bits – halfway done with the remainder, so only 72 more to go!). I’m treating those as leaders & enders where I can, so I’ll get some more done while piecing the Turning 20 quilt.

Memories of Provence - Block 9I also recently finished the two Saturday Sampler blocks for September. This is the ninth Memories of Provence block – more craziness with some of this piecing, but it turned out okay.  Since I picked up the finishing kit last week, I also cut up the borders and got those prepped and ready. These blocks are being set on point, so I’ve gotten 6 of the 8 diagonal rows complete with the blocks I’ve made so far (there are filler blocks as well). Once I show this block next month, I can piece the 7th row. Huzzah!

Going Coastal - Block 4

And here is the Going Coastal block for September.

  1. Love the Toile fabric. My Dad spent many an hour matching Toile wallpaper for our ancient house.

    I like having several projects going at once. There’s something about having lots of little pieces all in a row and ready to be ironed that makes me happy.

    All the best.
