WIP Wednesday – So Many Things!

It’s been a jam-packed sewing week, mostly because I didn’t have my laptop available to me to work on potentially paying gigs (i.e. – pattern design) in the evenings and weekends.  The good news is, my laptop is now fixed and has a fancy new cover and no longer feels like the screen is going to flap wildly about and fall off.

Not being focused on original designs meant that I could just freaking SEW. So sew I did! I made this top out of the last few leftovers from Sparkling Gems. It now needs a back and to be quilted.

Then I put on what is apparently the final border on Dresden Garden; I had considered adding more, but I don’t need to reach a specific size with it, so the current 57″ or so is big enough for a wall hanging.

It’s going to get some crazy intense quilting in there; ghost flowers, creeping vines, cross-hatching, etc.  It also needs a back!

I’ve got a sew-in tonight with my besties for our “We Put the Bee in Bacon”, so I’m working on piecing two more tops; one for a quilt along, and one for donation made out of leftover buffalo bits from this quilt.

HtbaS – Episode 306

In this episode of the Hip to be a Square quilting podcast, I talk about making progress on the Dresden Garden UFO, working out the design for Summertime Blues, and the mania that is putting on a quilt show this week!

Here’s the latest look at Dresden Garden with two borders attached!
