wip wednesday... a bit late

Wednesday, August 12, 2009
as you can imagine things are a bit busy over here...
between work..the blog.. mbs tutorials.. wips..
there is a lot going on!

on top of it i am working on 3 samples for the shop..
they will be kits for the booth at
Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza XVI...
they have to be done.. quilted.. and at the shop by sept 5th!!

first is a kindergarten quilt...
simple and easy... made from a variety of kids/30s prints

the top is done.. i just need to piece the back and quilt it...


next is..
picnic made with a custom charm pack containing five fig tree lines..


cute but not fast... i have one block done for inspiration.. all my 1/2 sq triangles are sewn and half are pressed and trimmed...

the stack of yummyness waiting to be worked on...


and last is metro...
super sleek...
but this pattern suffers from over information...
there are cutting directions for every type of fabric.. and by block or by fabric.. its just pages and pages of information... once you sort out what you need it isn't that bad..


i've got 8 large blocks done and 10 to go..
and all 10 small blocks done..
they aren't that complicated... just time consuming with 17 pieces in the large blocks...
here is what it'll look like...
so i have a lot to do!!
and i didn't work on any of it today...

--
so what have i been working on?

a little bit of this..
and a little bit of that... something will be baking soon over at the moda bake shop!

Love all the projects, I so wish I did not have a houseful of company coming I'd like to lock myself away and so for days!

Heather said...

Love the color choices -Can't wait to see them all finished - you are a super multi-tasker - I think I would feel very overwhelmed right now if I were you.

I was telling you I don't do more than one - but I was lying! I have 3 things cut and in progress right now . . . Just one major quilt though :)

Great projects... and they are all so different from each other. I love the look of the black/nuetral quilt. Can't wait to see what else you have going on with the fabric in the last pic.
