WIP Wednesday

Well, here we go again!
Trying to figure out what I got accomplished this week.
*****
Some fun blocks for round #2 of the
 I'm not sure how many I will do for this round.
*****
I also finished a quilt top for the Ironwork* QAL

   This quilt finishes at somewhere around 84" square.
I used Kona ash, medium grey, charcoal, school bus, green tea and a dark green(colour unknown to me!)
I'm shopping around for a sheet to use as backing.
*****
I completed the latest block for Sew Out Loud.
This block is designed by Leila @ Where The Orchids Grow.
Another fun block to do!
  Looking forward to this weeks block!!
*****
I have an almost finish as well! Woohoo!
After almost a year....I pieced together the back for
Ocean View From The Prairies.
This is a stack and slash quilt using Dan Stiles Marine and a bunch of solids as well as stash fabric.
  This is the finished top....hopefully tomorrow I can get it basted and then get busy quilting it!!
My poor sewing room is in complete shambles with so many projects in the works.
The good news is that I haven't started anything new!!
well...almost...
I did get a book from the library-Socks From The Toe Up by Wendy Johnson.
I've had the wool for probably 5 years or more, so I don't think it counts as a NEW start!
I've done a ton of knitting but never socks!! Should be interesting!
*****
Hope you all have a great sewing week, and see you next Wednesday.

I love the way you put your colours together. Wow for the ironwork. I have never heard of that before. So many quilting ideas, so little time! Thanks for visiting my blog where I am forever in WIPs :).

Colourful blocks and I do like your Ironworks quilt. You do seem to be keeping busy with so many different projects on the go. It keeps one from being bored.

Marsha Cooper said...

I love the black lines in the one quilt. I should learn how to do that.
All you are doing looks wonderful.

Janine said...

Kit Lang said...

Love your top - looks great!

Martha said...

Your quilts are fabulous...but what I really like is the cat picture at the top...I work for 2 brothers who are a little spoilt by their wealthy father...and by lunch everyday I look like that cat. I have been known to send their father an e-mail that consists of just one picture, similar to that one, letting him know what kind of day I have had. Makes him chuckle...he is wonderful! Have a great day!
