WIP Wednesday: What aren't I working on???

WIP Wednesday actually stands for Works In Progress, right?

Cause that's what I've got. I've been flitting about, working on several projects at once since last Friday. In no particular order, here's what's on my design wall (and/or studio floor!)

 I'm part of the Dare to Dresden blog hop over at Sew We Quilt. It actually starts tomorrow, but I'm not scheduled until the last day, January 31st. So actually, I'm starting this early, right? You can see the hop's entire schedule here.

I asked for a Marilyn Doheny's 9-degree circle wedge ruler for my birthday. I thought I'd play around with it to create a modern Dresden, inspired by some quilts I've pinned. I'm glad that I have another week to work on this, because not only am I not crazy about it yet, but this quarter circle is supposed to measure 90 degrees and it doesn't. I'm looking forward to seeing how this design idea evolves.

Piecing some red and pink patchwork for a Valentine's Day tutorial. Watch for it next week!

Cutting squares and laying out this charity quilt, made with donated blocks. It was strange to go from working with 1-1/2"squares (the v-day patchwork) to 12-1/2" squares! Talk about different scale!

 The applique portion of my snowman quilt. I need to get the appliqueing done so I can assemble. I'm going to quilt it as I go, so I think it'll go together really quickly!

My January "Year of Lovely Finishes" project, my kids' stockings. I finished quilting the teal one this morning, so now it's assembly time!

Maybe, just maybe I would finish a project if I focused on just one at a time!


  1. One at a time is no good idea, at least for me, and I understand also for you. So many pretty things around make us happy, every day. Think of that!

  2. Yeah, but they'll all come together and look how many finishes you will have. Amazing progress!

  3. I thinkl I need to take a page out of your book and get my advent calendar (which is half quilted) finished and bound! For the past two Novembers I have forgotten about it until a week before Christmas and there has been no time to schedule it in during the busy lead up to the mad rush that Christmas is over here with two children's parties to deal with and Christmas always at our place. Great idea to get Christmas projects out of the way NOW!

    The colours in your dresden practice are inspiring, I look forward to seeing your creation come to fruition!

  4. Why focus on one project when there are so many! I do exactly the same :) I love the Dresden with the splashes of orange!
