WIP Wednesday

Here’s to accountability! I’m linking up with Lee for WIP Wednesday.

Finished:

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!

New Projects:

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.)

  1. Love that mini quilt, it’s fantastic! Your curves look great too. Those are not easy! Good luck with finding a layout wall. your layout on the floor looks good so far though.

  2. Love that wee heart mini! I’m also going to have to grasp that whole design wall nettle soon…

  3. Awesome, Colleen! What’s the inside measurement of the white in the quarter arc you made for the single girl?
