WIP Wednesday!

And once again it's Hump Day!

A quiet week. Only progress was on the Floating Wildflowers for Simone's wedding. And that wasn't as much progress as I would have liked.


Floating Wildflowers

Modern or Traditional?

Blocks are made and laid!

They're not quite as floaty as I'd like, but the design carries off, overall, I think.

I plan for a thin framing border in a dark colour (or possibly several) and then some small coloured squares as a border to widen it just that little bit more.

Floating Wildflowers: getting it together

It's been more difficult laying them out and sewing it together because of the new kittehs:
Yin/Yang kittehs

They look cute and quiet here, but they have a tendency to play with anything that is fabric and loose, or which has a trailing a string of blocks being carried to the sewing table...


No Progress
- Paper Pieced Stars: I'm going to add more stars to this and make it a lap quilt, or possibly a wall hanging.
- Scrap Attack: Dirty Dancing: need to lay it out again and sew the blocks together
- Disappearing Harvest: still needs binding

Finally, I'm going to sell a couple of my quilts because my finances are running out and things are looking grim in the job market over here:

The Colour Of Magic

I'll have the details up on Etsy in a few days once I work out shipping costs, etc.

Keep an eye out for them!

And go forth and check out the linky post over at Freshly Pieced!
