WIP Wednesday

As the temperatures warm up, I find myself less inclined to spend too much time sewing, but I did manage to complete a couple of projects this week.
Sadly, the Sew Out Loud QAL has come to a conclusion with the final block instructions posted last week.
 Naturally, it wouldn't be a block of mine without something wonky about it!

The needle hole should look a whole lot better than that!
But, what the heck...I'm leaving it alone.
Now I just need to join together the 12 finished blocks, quilt them, and get them hung on the wall in my sewing room.
*****
For the second project I completed this week, I used the new fabric collection, Summersville.
A couple months ago there was a New York Beauty QAL which I joined and then abandoned after only doing 2 blocks.
I loved the blocks, but didn't have a clear idea what I was doing with them!
It wasn't until I saw a table runner by Lee here at Freshly Pieced, that I knew what I wanted to do.  Thanks Lee!
So, here is my New York by way of Summersville!

 These are some beautiful fabrics and make a great summer
project!
I think I'll also use it to make some new pillows.
*****
Finally the thread I've been waiting for has arrived and I can get back to quilting Ocean View and Ironwork*.
I'm linking up with Lee and Monika today.
Hope everyone has a great sewing week.

your New York Beauty table runner is so pretty! I love NYB blocks, but every time I try to make one all my points get cut off. The springy colors you chose are perfect, I particularly like the corally-orange-pinks.

Leila said...

I love the NY Beauties! I have got to try one.

Wonderful NY Beauty Blocks! I enlarged the photos so I could see them even better and noticed that your choice of the printed blue and white in the middle block almost gave it a squared shape. Did you do that on purpose or did it just happen? I like the effect. I am going to look through my fabrics to see if I can find a print that will create that illusion...

Gosh!!! I love it all...your blocks from the QAL are fantastic..just too cute really. And I love your NYB. It is stunning!

I'm too scared to brave a NY Beauty, but I do love the block. The QAL blocks are great. I adore the "Drive it like you stole it block." So cute!

Mrs.Pickles said...

lovely work!

Jeanette said...

All the projects you shared are so cute! I especially love the spool of thread block.

Sana Saroti said...

Cant wait to see your finished Sew Out Loud quilt!

M-R said...

Those blocks will make an awesome quilt! Way to go on those tiny pieces, Patti! Love your table runner too -- very cool in the Summersville fabric. Hope you'll link it up to TGIFF! this week?

elle said...

Wow! You are all about pointy points. Great stuff!

Jenn said...

Oh wow, your table runner! It's just gorgeous! And your project really makes the fabric sing.

Regina said...

Great idea to use those blocks for a table runner.

Sew Surprising said...

Your paper piecing blocks are gorgeous, and I envy your warmer days as we are heading into the cold ones :(

PrairiePeasant said...

The Summersville fabrics are very nice for your project. I'd love to have some to play with!

Marsha Cooper said...

That wall hanging is going to be so cool on your sewing room wall!
The piecing alone had to be hard on that table runner.

Chez Roo said...

This is amazing! Paper piecing + sewing theme = awesome!
