W.i.P. Wednesday

Over the last 10 days I've made several deliveries, and that feels really terrific. Mom got her table topper, which looks awesome on her table, my sister and brother in law finally received the Modern Crosses quilt I made them back in February, I mailed off the FAITH Circle hst quilt and heard this afternoon that it arrived safely, and finally, the 30 pincushions were delivered just tonight. whew.

Completed projects
Lined drawstring bag - I decided those pincushions needed to be packaged up nice and neat, and they fit perfectly in "The Artist Bag" by Jeni Baker.
Another lined drawstring bag - inside are the 30 pincushions from The Pincushion Project!

Ongoing projects
Woodland cross-stitch sampler - I finished January! I know I'm woefully behind, but moving forward slow and steady.

x and + blocks {#xplusalong} - Of the 40 I have cut out, I have 20 partially pieced, and managed 6 more finished blocks.

Lucky Stars mini/SMQG star challenge quilt - No progress quite yet, but found another perfect fabric to include.

April bee blocks - Three sets done and just waiting for the fabric to arrive for the last one!

Mid-Century Modern quilt - OK, here's where I concentrated my efforts this week. The "on-point" layout won out and I'm so glad I went that direction. I'll share more process talk in the eventual reveal post, but for now let's just say I'm more than pleased, and am currently quilting happily along . . .

Upcoming projects
* May plan for Always Bee Learning Bee
* pillow for grandgirl
* Polaroid block projects
* pillows
* mail bag
* scrappy triangle quilt

Linking up with W.i.P. Wednesday.

Fabulous projects! Your x and + blocks are looking like lovely chaos, and I love the mid-centry modern quilt!

Mid-century Modern is looking great! I love the narrow strip around the main blocks- it frames them perfectly!

Deb said...

Love your x plus blocks. And who knew there were so many low volume fabrics out there...my stash is woefully thin with these, but I love the look of them as a background.

Erica said...

Sounds like a satisfying week! The mid century quilt is looking fantastic, do you know what you are going to use for binding? I'm excited to see how the finished product will look :)

Kirsten said...

Oh! That low volume is...stunning. I love what you're doing with it! Is there/will there be a tutorial? Must go hunting back for the original blocks!

Busy busy. Love the on point layout for the MCM bee blocks.

Leanne said...

You are doing so much. I sure love the MCM quilt, it is going to be another stunning one.

LOVE! That LV is looking wonderful! I spotted my own block top and center, but honestly, I had difficulties finding it. Because of the layout, the block structure isn't apparent. But don't you love how those lines and solids around the outside continue what was started inside, in the prints? It's SO effective! This was definitely the way to piece it together, and I think you have a real winner here. Hope you decide to enter it in the AQS Modern Challenge. You'll do well!
