WiP Wednesday

I made some great progress over the past week. Yeah me!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Ongoing Projects:
1. Single Girl Quilt along. This quilt has been a great challenge and fun to make. It's amazing to me that I can sew a bunch of little pieces together in an arc and then sew them onto another curved piece and it all fits. Check this out:

See how the ends of the arc don't touch the edges of the white fabric?

Well, when I put 9,999 pins in it...

and slowly sew it together - Voila - magic! Every time I piece the arc onto the white section I am just amazed that it really worked. I guess I'm easily amused.

Not too much more to finish before I have a complete circle.

2. The raggedy quilt is coming right along. I need to just bite the bullet and finish it up. There's only a mere 160 bricks that need to be sewn together. Easy stuff.

Completed quilts awaiting binding:
1. Picture Day quilt. I got this back from the long arm quilter and it looks great. I can't wait to get the binding on it!

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
There are 3 of these. I need to finalize the backing choices for all of them before I can send them off to the quilter.

Still in the design phase:
The fabric selections are finally complete for the baseball/football quilt. Now on to the drawing it up and dimensioning it.

I accidentally added a new project to my list. I joined the Supernova quilt along. I'm excited because I've decided to use Denyse Schmidt's Greenfield Hill fabric line for this quilt.

I literally LOL'ed at the amount of pins in that block! How in the world do you sew more than two stitches at a time!!! It does look great though!

I'm so impressed with your Single Girl quilt! Looking forward to seeing the supernova with the Greenfield Hill fabric!

I may have missed it, but if not, the Single Girl Quilt is screaming for a tutorial...oh wait, that may be me! LOL

Those pins crack me up! Going to show you how to use only 5 on a curve and it comes out perfect when you get here. Lordy Lordy, counting the days to you and the girls arrive! Yeah!

Love it! I'm actually doing the quilt along on 'I have to say' and it's turning out great!
See you for Shop Hop!
