Quilting WIPs


Phew! That was a week I am happy to leave behind. Sometimes life bites you in the arse, eh? Anyways. Enough about that. Let's talk quilting!

Since I gave you a knitting project update the other day, I thought I would also give you a peek at some of my quilting WIPs (happy, Alison?). I appear to be suffering from a bit of quilting attention deficit disorder these days, with several projects on the go and lots of hacking and slashing going on.

First up- I cut up this pile that I had shown you earlier....

And put it back together like this:

I used this pattern from Four Wise Monkeys on Sew Mama Sew, which of course seemed a perfect use for my Children at Play fabric. I've decided not to stop here, though- I plan to do some calculations to add some borders to convert this from a lap quilt to a double bed size. Back to that later!

Also- am feeling a little Christmas-y....

And have also used my Go! Baby to make use of my Bonnie and Camille Ruby layer cake. I may have utilized a bit of slave labour for that one ;)


Off I go to stitch these back together again!

Nice to see you make your kids earn their keep and thank goodness you broke out the fabric. I really was starting to wonder whether the yarn gremlins had spirited the real Kristie away.

Hope next week is a better one. meantime - Margaritas!

I loved the "poster" at the top of the page! I chuckled and WM raised his eyebrows (he's putting a new cover on the ironing board).
Glad your bad week is behind you and quilting is bringing you pleasure!
