WIP Wednesday - July 27

Excited to show some progress this week on my WIP list items!

McCalls Design Star Challenge #2 - can't show you anything until the voting starts, but I have done a lot of work on the design and am close to finalizing.

EQ7 2011 BOM- on track (See Monday's blog)
Jinny Beyer 2010 BOM - sashings and cornerstones completed. Assembly started.
Lonestar wall hanging - Found some great 12 wt thread to use in doing some embroidery in the setting triangles maybe. - target August

Oddie's Wild Nature - target July...most likely August if at all now.
One-fabric re-pieced table cloth - target October (p.s. picked up a very thin batting at AQS Knoxville to try with this)
Completed Tops awaiting Quilting
1892 Rondure -- on the machine today, intend to submit for jury into MQX-West
2006 Basket BOM - target August
Tulip wall hanging --this is a redo of the quilting - target November
Colorwash Heart Duvet Cover -- this is to salvage an old duvet - target December

Starlight-Flutterbright (crystals have started to be applied)

These will accent the 'on point' square that is a secondary design in this quilt.
All of the butterfly eyes have black crystals.
All of the pansies have 3 crystals right in the center. Pink in the pink pansies and orange in the orange pansies. Once I get all of the crystals on the outer parts, then I'll look at the big star in the center and figure out where to put crystals to balance it with the rest of the quilt.

New: 1
Completed: 5
In Progress: 11

This is a client quilt. I painted the center panel after quilting it. wdyt? Submitting it by Monday for jury into MQX-West --hope it gets in! A detail of the painting is on Monday's blog post.


  1. Wow! That sure looks great as a whole - the paint work quilt. Did she use silk or satin for the light blue? (Looks all shiny from here) If so, is it difficult to quilt?

  2. Congrats for making it to challenge #2 on McCall's. Love the addition of the crystals on Starlight. That really gives some dimension.

  3. Congrats for making it to Challenge #2 of Design Star! And did I thank you for mentioning ME in your profile?! So awesome, so thank you! : )
