Here’s to accountability! I’m linking up with Lee for WIP Wednesday.
A Valentine’s Day mini. Inspired by this piece of art on Etsy, a snapshot of graffiti in Paris. I loved it and thought it would translate so well into a mini quilt. I think it might just become a giant throw for my house as well. Super quick and easy. I even sewed a quilt with linen for the first time!
I played around with scraps to see if I really want to make Denyse Schmidt’s Single Girl quilt. King size for our new bed. I think if I had to cut out all the templates, I would say no way. I have no patience for that. Luckily, my friend Amber came up with a foundation piece pattern for the arcs. I’m so on it. I cut up my lovely fat quarter stack of Hometown by Sweetwater and started piecing.
Print Gallery Quilt. I am playing with the layout for a new quilt using Echo (Lotta Jansdotter), Impressions (Ty Pennington), and some Heather Ross fishies. I used this fabulous arrangement by Kati. Again, she is a design genius! I showed my friends her quilt and they just couldn’t stop browsing her finishes. And one of them is not even a quilter. (Please pardon the mess on my design floor. One day I’ve got to find a wall big enough in my house to have a real design wall.)

Quilting my Heartstrings quilt before Valentine’s Day (since I pieced the top last year)
