WIP Wednesday - too many new!

Linda Beth

There are actually quite a few things to report on this week, I am pleased to say! Last week and weekend I got some good, full work days at the studio, and new projects and inspirations on the horizon.

New Projects
We'll start small... I got a couple of sets of napkins squared away.
These would have been ready sooner except I was carrying them in a bag with a bottle of Best Press that decided to leak and soak a stinky, flowery starch alternative all over. Blech! Second round in the washer ensued.

Started playing with a new design and technique:


and have selected fabrics to try again, hoping the end result will be of a quality to submit for the MQG section of the 2012 Int'l. Quilt Festival in Houston this fall.

Completed
Okay, so this is a bit of a cheat, since I am still working on the binding, but by the END of today it will no doubt be finished! Quilted this baby quilt on Monday:

quick set of Jane Sassaman pillow cases

Some Progress
Completed quilt tops:
The Nubees blocks

A peek at project #1 for the FTLOS2 swap.

And baby steps:
finished cutting out freezer paper ovals to get the rest of those encapsulated blocks appliqued and ready to put together.

No progress
Bliss quilt quilting
Warm/Cool QAL
placemat sets
Starburst blocks

So the tally:
New - 4
Completed - 3
In progress - 6
unquilted tops - 16

Now it's time for me to get ready for work, then I'll be heading over to Lee's blog Freshly Pieced and see what everyone else has been up to this last week on their WIP Wed. posts!
