Okay, so it's baby quilts got backings but accuracy was ditched in favour of cool-sounding, catchy WIP Wednesday names...
Backings done in soft flannels! Now to find time to quilt them!
Not sure about this weekend. I've got big quilt quilting to do this weekend...
Scrap Attack: Selvage Strings
Got a few of these done during the week, so I have a small collection now - hopefully to become a larger collection as the weeks go on!
A close-up of the textures. I'm using a lot of Kona solids selvages,which means they have fringed edges, and the result (at least with these blue blocks) is rather akin to the waves of the sea.
It'll be interesting to see what happens with the rest of the colours!
Diamonds Dancing In Rainbows
I was going to sew the top of this together on Friday night...and then I was exhausted and distracted and couldn't get myself together. ARGH.
Santorini Sun And Sky
This got accepted into the Sydney Quilt Show 2013, along with the Eternity Quilt, so I'm quilting it this weekend. Angela Walters book on quilt designs has been very helpful, but I'm going to try a pattern of my own inventing and see how that goes. (It may not. It may fail horribly. Eek!)
Quilting on Saturday!
I have many pieces of this collection, having built them up over the last year or two. Now I'm looking at putting it all together in a quilt with some fabrics from Art Gallery - I think these ones are Pat Bravos. The colour is very very close, and while the designs don't match, they'd provide some nice contrasts and similarities.
White background, maybe?
The trick is mostly working out what to do that will allow all the fabrics to shine and minimise wastage!
Right now I am contemplating two patterns from Modern Patchwork: 'Honey' or 'Glam Garlands'. Your thoughts?
Also, if you happen to have any Swimming Sisters (Plum, or Ivory), or Octopi (Blush, Natural, Orange, or Gold), or Seahorses (Orange, Fuchsia or Rust), let me know. I'm happy to swap Mermaids in Gold, Kelp in Blush, or Swimming Sisters in Fuchsia, one-to-one! (Definitions of the colours are here at the Free Spirit fabric page.
And speaking of Mendocino Mermaids, I have a giveaway for Giveaway Week: 2 FQs from the Mendocino Mermaids line. Go here and check it out!
So...what have you been up to this week?
