Plain Jane [WIP Wednesday]

It truly feels like I've been doing this forever.

Like, seriously, FOREVER. I'm so tired of sewing teeny tiny seams and feeling like I never get anywhere!

Little pieces, little pieces, little pieces...



So much planning...

This goes with that...

And pieceing...

Sewing, sewing, never stopping...

And laying out...

This fits just there...

It's enough to drive one batty!

And yet...progress is being made.

The shape of it is starting to fill out. It feels like it's moving towards being quilt-shaped...

Even if there's still a lot to do.

As in, a LOT to do.

But we persevere.

It's slow progress, but progress nevertheless!

And when I get a chance to stand back and look...

Yeah, that's kind of what I imagined it would be like.



Do you have a WIP Wednesday that you've been working on? Would you like to link to it in the comments?

the Plain Jane Passacaglia: 100 days of seams

One of my goals for this year is to get the Plain Jane Passcaglia finished. Towards this end, I'm doing a "100 days of seams" with the quilt - where I sew at least one seam per day.

It started from the 20th January, at the Sydney Mod Squad meetup:

And then progressed very slowly over the next few days


Sometimes it was literally one seam:

And then there's the issue of laying things out to work out the edges:

Planning the bits to fill in the gaps

Making the bits to fill in the gaps

And sewing them in:

On the upside, I've definitely made progress around the edges. It's getting there. Not as fast as I'd like, but when does it ever?
