WIP Wednesday: An Inventory

My creative juices have been running very low lately with most of my brain power going toward bookkeeping audit work (which is most thankfully, almost done) so I thought I would take a photographic inventory of my quilting works in progress to jump start my plan to finish these up before the summer ends.  

Fat Quarter Shop 2010 Designer Mystery BOM - seven blocks completed, five to go.

Supernova Quilt Along from Lee From Freshly Pieced.  Five blocks completed, one in progress with three more to go.  My favorite of the whole to get this one done.  

Summer Sampler Series hosted by Faith, Katie and Lee.  Finished Block 4 yesterday morning and am so happy with the results.  Katie had suggested that we cut our fabric into 3 inch blocks and then once we pieced the HST's, cut them down to 2.5 inch blocks.  That method worked well for me as this block came out almost perfect - a first for me!

Off to do some obvious quilt back/binding shopping, a wonderful lunch date and an evening spent sewing away while my people are off playing soccer and sailing.  

Go see what other's have on their WIP's list for this week with Lee at Freshly Pieced.

WIP Wednesday: Flying Geese

I finished a quilt top last night.

It's been ages since I finished a quilt top so I'm invigorated to keep sewing as much as possible this week.  Supernova here I come!  The above quilt was the Block-A-Palooza Quilt Along from which I have named Italian Sorbetto.  When I began this QA I had no idea how many flying geese were involved in these blocks - I now detest flying geese.  Seriously.  

Other WIP's
Supernova - need to finish quilt top blocks
School Yard - needs to be basted, quilted and bound.
Sliced Coins - quilt top done, need to order binding and backing fabric

Please check out what others are working on at Freshly Pieced with Lee for WIP Wednesday #32.
