Got a few projects in the works – in various stages of completion. Let’s go from closest to finished to just the fabric.
Simply Color + Lucky (Simply Lucky?!) is at a standstill. For no good reason. I just need to baste, quilt, bind and I’m done! What’s holding me up?!
Refresher/recycled pic of the top:
And here it is paired with the back (pieced of course!)
Actually I can tell you why there’s no progress. And it’s a ridiculous reason. It’s because I don’t have a large enough piece of batting for it and I’d have to frankenstein it. I hate frankensteining batting. So I’m procrastinating.
The next project partway done currently consists of Bee blocks. I have received all the blocks now and just need to decide how to put it together.
The block pattern is the Modern Sliced Scrappy block by Don’t Call Me Betsy. Very fun little block to put together. I’m just unsure on how to put the blocks together. Thin white sashing? Thin red sashing? No sashing? Oh the dilemma!
And last project – and probably because it’s newest, I’m most excited about it. I recently saw pics of Winter’s Lane pinned by Alyce. And fell in love. No, not with Alyce (though I do adore you, girlie!), but with Winter’s Lane. What a stunning line! So thrilled to find a very well priced layer cake! Was delivered today.
I don’t think pictures do this line justice. It is just stunning. So much so, I am thinking I am not even going to cut the fabric up, but simply sew the squares together to make myself a lovely throw quilt for Winter so I can admire all the prints. As the weather has just gotten rather cold (well okay, cold to us coastal types that only see snow if we travel hours and hours), I think a throw rug is much needed. Backed with minky. Mmmm.
So that’s me. Projects in various states of completion (plus there are others that have slipped down the priority list!). Unlikely I’ll be logical and complete these in order. I think Winter’s Lane is calling my name too loudly to be ignore. It might be bumped to the top of the list.
P.S. Hope you have a paper pieced project in progress ready to share for the very first Paper Piecing Party! Linky opens on Friday – come join the fun!
