WIP Wednesday

Happy Halloween! 
 
Hope everyone has great plans for tonight!
All I'll be doing is handing out treats to the kiddies!

Not much sewing this past week, I'm afraid.
I managed to do the 2 blocks that Erica requested for 

Actually, I really like this block!
It the Cartwheel block designed by Lee here at Freshly Pieced!
These blocks will make a wonderful quilt and I like the blue, red and green
colour theme that Erica chose.
We are also back on track with Test Your Skills Sampler!
Test Your Skills SamplerSandi at 
Piecemeal Quilts has posted 2 new blocks, so I got them done as well.

 Crossed Canoes and Spirals
The background is actually Kona Raisin, although it might look black!
I have a stack of Chicopee triangles that I have had up on my design board for a couple of weeks, but just don't know about it!
I'd look at it, photograph it...
hate it..
move triangles around...
repeat...
it's really busy looking....
I'm thinking of really scaling down and just using a few prints with a lot negative space.
I think I'll like that better, and since I cut so many triangles, I can probably do 2
different layouts!
So, that's it for me!
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
and Monika at
Have a great sewing week!
Sending best wishes out to everyone on the east coasts of Canada and USA, as Sandy does her best to wreak havoc!

Great blocks! Love that cartwheel designs - I'm pretty sure I have it bookmarked for future reference.

Have you been doing the piecemeal QAL up till now? I only saw it recently and fell in love, then realized that they'd stalled out. Glad to see that they're starting to post again.

Good luck with your triangle design challenge! I just saw in your header your feather pillows and realized YOU are the one who inspired me to buy Chicopee. And I am totally using it for feathers even though I had forgotten all about yours (at least in my conscious mind).

Goodness, those cartwheels are great and the spirals are very cool!

Regina said...

Great blocks all, and very well pieced!

Your seams are to die for. I also love the green blue colourway.
