WIP Wednesday – On Time and Under Budget

Oh, hey, finally got a WIP Wednesday post up on Wednesday! And actual progress to report, too!

The #LDSI Labor Day Sew In was pretty productive for me.  I got two quilts bound, a top pieced, made a new purse, put finishing touches on some luggage tags, and made the top for my official Panel Challenge piece for the Atlanta Modern Quilters Guild.

This is the (unpressed) panel I’m starting with.  It’s very tempting to just add a border to it as it and quilt it, but I was thinking through where I’d like to put it. I didn’t have a spot in my house just calling for this quilt to be hung on a wall, so I went another way.

A way that involved a lot of geometry and angles and bias edges.

Anywho, the top got pieced (after much swearing and sighing) and sandwiched and I started quilting it last night. I’m doing custom quilting on it and using a number of different thread colors to match.  Here’s a close-up of some of the quilting in one of the sunflower centers.

  1. I like the quilting on your sunflower. I wish I would have thought about doing circles on my sunflower centers. I had two large sunflower panels that I quilted up earlier this year. My sunflowers got a spiral. I will have to go take a look at the quilt when I next visit my mom to see if the spirals are as good in appearance as your circles.

  2. That’s a neat panel. I like what you did with the quilting. Looking forward to seeing more of this one. Looking forward to seeing the bag as well. I love making bags. 🙂
