WIP Wednesday #29

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Three cushions for a swap. (And, incidentally, Celebrate Colour.)

Celebrate Colour Cushions - finished!

They were posted yesterday; I hope the recipient likes them!


Mum's Imperial Star Destroyer Quilt

The main body of the top is all sewn together!

Mum's Impstar - finished top centre!

However, I don't like the white sashing as the edge of the quilt, so I'm adding a darker border. Fabric is on order and will hopefully arrive before long...

I was hoping to have it done before Christmas...

Charmed Prints

Block time! Virginia Stars, Greek Cross, and Churn Dash:

After my kerfuffle last week about looking for a dark backing, I went with white instead. *makes handwavy motions*

French Lace Batiks & Modern Basics
The new project! Cut, strip-pieced, joined, and blocked!

french lace blocks

I've also squared up the Harvest HSTs - hurrah for progress!

WIP blocks - french lace and harvest HSTs

This Week's Plans
1. Arrange and sew together Harvest HSTs.
2. Finish French Lace Modern Basic quilt. (Need a less unwieldy name for this.)
3. Get next feature blocks of Charmed Prints quilt done and start row assembly.

It's been a busy week, and it's gonna be another one ahead.

How are you doing with your WIPs?


  1. You most certainly have a had a busy week. So much done.

  2. Wow!!! you are very busy. and everything is lovely....I espcially love the first quilt top

  3. The charmed prints layout is wonderful. It will be an amazing quilt :)

  4. I love the star quilt! I am into star quilts at the moment, and I love yours done in asian fabric, so cool.

  5. I usually just look really quick and move on...but those pillows caught my eye and that quilt stunned me. The fabric is awesome and I love star quilts. Good job...I am jealous of your mom. I became your follower so I could keep up with what you are doing. Thanks for sharing with us.
