WIP Wednesday: the one with UGH


First things first. YUCK FLICKR, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE??? To quote a young friend of mine: I CAN'T EVEN.

I'm really kind of pissed off about the fact that it automatically lists the setting as 'embed' rather than 'HTML' - no, I don't want people to go scrolling through my Flickr, thanks.

Anyway. I guess one more thing that I'll have to learn to work around... *grr*

WIPs

Do You Know Where You're Going To?

Sewing HSTs together so they make perfect points!

I think I'm doing okay.

Aaaand the close-up!

More to come next week - I've been a bit lax this last week. Got busy, got sick, still busy and still sick.

Mondrian Dreaming

I've cut a bunch of squares, but there are even more yet to be cut. *sigh*

To Do

Ugh. EVERYTHING.

There's the 'hexies' block from Hexa-Go-Go: I'm gradually going to put together a 4x4 of that for a throw.

And there's the pieces of the Passacaglia Quilt I'm planning for next year's quilt show entry.

And of course, tape measure for determining about how large the show quilts were going to be (mostly guessing, seeing as they're not yet done), and gluestick for sticking together all the little photocopies of the Passacaglia pattern so that I could fit lots of them on an A4 sheet for printing out on cardstock and turning into paper piecing templates...

It never stops. NEVER.

How about you? Hopefully you're less frustrated/exasperated/exhausted than I! And have better WIPs in the bag!

  1. I love your HST's the fabric is really nice, great colours! Can I be cheeky and ask what it is?

    1. Sorry - were you asking what the fabric was, or what the quilt was?

      The fabrics are Reece Scannell shot cottons (Australian fabric designer) against Kona Stone, and it's for a show quilt - which is why I'm taking such pains to get the points right!

    1. Thank you!

      I've actually been really careful with these ones, trying to get them exactly matched. I don't usually take this kind of trouble...

  3. If you figure it out let us know. I quit using flickr because of the embedding feature.

    1. You can select 'embed' or 'html' when it offers you the code. HTML gives you just the picture. Embed gives you the flash screen that flicks through your photostream.

      But it always defaults to 'embed' now, while previously it remembered your last selection. :(

  4. Love your triangles they are just so beautiful and that fabric just seems to shimmer... are they shot cottons?

    1. Yes, Reece Scannell shot cottons - an Australian fabric designer who started in fashion and has developed these lovely fabrics, but mostly as a niche rather than as a promotional sales line.
