WiP Wednesday continues...

Ongoing Project:
So here I am chugging along on my color wheel quilt. I do not enjoy machine quilting on my sewing machine. It's kind of like wrestling a greased pig. I've never actually wrestled a greased pig, but I can imagine how difficult it would be. Well, that's how I feel about shifting and scrunching a quilt around on my machine. This quilt, however, was kind of the exception. I only had to follow the straight line so that made it a lot easier. Maybe it's because I didn't have to think and wrestle at the same time. I only had to wrestle the quilt around since following the lines was kind of a no-brainer.



Now all the quilting is finished and the blue guide lines have been washed away. Getting the binding on is all that's left to do. I want to bind it today so I can start my next project.



New Project:
Next up is the reversible Batman/Superman quilt using some of these fabrics.


That will be fun! I'm not use to making little boy quilts so it will be a nice change of pace.

Oh yeah, look at this cute little car decal I found here on Etsy. I ordered one for a couple of my quilt guild friends too and can't wait to give it to them.

Linking up to Freshly Pieced as always. If you have some extra time go check out some other WiP's. My friend Melinda has created a great new quilt called "X marks the spot" that is definitely worth a peek.

Wow! That color wheel quilt is GORGEOUS! Great job on the greased pig wrestling/quilting, LOL. I totally know how you feel about that, by the way.

And what a cute little car decal. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

That color wheel quilt is to DIE FOR!
I will, shamefully, admit to having wrestled a greased pig. I was 7. And wrasslin' heavy quilts through little machines is quite similar. Equally messy, too, if you're anything like me and have loose threads flying everywhere.
