W.i.P. Wednesday

Time in the sewing room have been pretty slim this last week, but that doesn't mean W.i.P. Wednesday doesn't show up right on schedule!

Completed projects
September bee blocks are back in the mail, along with some Snowball blocks for a special charity project.

Polaroid block project - This little bag got its own post, and still makes me smile when I see it on my sewing table. I'm anxious to play with more Polaroid blocks, but it may be a while.

Ongoing projects
Caught by a nasty virus this last week, I honestly didn't have much energy to sew, so what little I did do was flit between projects.

Modern Crosses quilt - Blocks are all cut out now and three more stitched together.

Mod Pop Quiltalong - All my cutting is done(!) and I had great success using my templates and smallest rotary cutter. I couldn't help but piece just enough curves to test a block up on the design wall. Promising!

Christmas quilt - This probably doesn't look like much just yet, but I do have a plan, and these are the 9 center blocks of it, and yes, it's what I had in my mind's eye. More to tell as I get more blocks done.

Dresden project - no progress.

Upcoming projects
* nametag for Sewing Summit
* scrappy Metrolink - who knows when, but I still really want to!
* another frame purse
* use Polaroid blocks
* placemats
* Binary quilt using blocks from Modern Blocks Bee
* Sew Lux Challenge project NEW
* UR Priceless Blog Hop project NEW

Linking up with W.i.P. Wednesday.

These look wonderful, Debbie -- so many projects going on! Your Mod Pop is gorgeous, and I love those crosses. I too hope you're feeling better!

Anne said...

Oh wow, your mod pop is stunning! What size rotary did you use? My 45mm gets caught on the inside edge of the L shaped curve. I'm not sure if there's a smaller rotary out there I should try or if I need more skills! :D

Your Christmas quilt is also really lovely!

I love the colours you picked for your Mod Pop quilt. And I am digging the little Polaroid block on the bag - I am trying to come up with a plan for the Polaroid blocks that I won in your giveaway (thanks again)!

Susan said...

So sorry you got sick...not fun at all. Hope you are on the mend now.
The drawstring bag with the Polaroid Block on the front is just darling! Went back and looked at the original post...again just darling. Looked at my blocks today after I sewed up Leanne's September block - looking forward to finding them a project.
