WIP Wednesday

DSC01728

If it’s Wednesday, it must be time to report on Works in Progress.  The 2 quilts above are actually Quilts that are Finally Finished.  They’ve been hanging on the railing for WEEKS (months?) waiting to have their bindings turned to the back.  I’ve had this delusion that I was going to hand stitch them, and this weekend I finally accepted that that was not going to happen.  They’ve both been finished on the machine and washed.  Now, to decide what to do with them.

You’ve already seen my postcards, I still have a fair bit to do to get ready for this weekend, but it was nice to mail the penguins off yesterday.

I’ve been spending some time at home working on a machine applique project, which I’m not going to show pictures of until it is finished.  It looks really messy right now, and I don’t want you to think badly of me.

Here at the shop, I’ve finally bitten the bullet and loaded….

Yup, the Radiant Star is finally on the quilting machine.   Nothing exciting yet, just some boring straight line stitching-in-the-ditch, but I’m on my way!

And…had better get back to it…

What have you been working on?

    I was wondering if I missed your post on the finished Radient Star quilt. I see I haven’t and I’m looking forward to the quilting.

    Both quilts are lovely — your quilts always have such a good use of color.

    I’m doing some binding too, a little quilting, and trying to get my pink & brown blocks assembled into a finished top….making a little progress on all fronts.

    Yippee! I can’t wait to see how you quilt that one.

    I’m also quilting – but on a home machine – the guild president’s quilt. Every year the guild makes the president a quilt to thank her for her work and since I’m past president, guess who gets the job of coordinator? Wouldn’t be bad if I weren’t so slow. Two more weeks until the meeting. I’d better get busy!
