W.i.P. Wednesday

Yikes. It's been two long months since I've linked up with W.i.P. Wednesday. I've been busy co-hosting and sewing along with Patchwork, Please, managing to stay on track with the City Sampler quilt along, and stitching up sundry other quilts, totes, and littles. There's also been Falling for Modern Maples, a flickr group with no agenda other than to gather folks together as they make a variety of Modern Maples. If you're inclined at all, join us! I dare ya!

Current projects
City Sampler Quilt Along - Three little blocks a week is quite doable and they are so satisfying! I'm enjoying mixing up what Tula bits I have in my stash. And every few weeks I make a block grid to see how things are coming.

September bee blocks - I'm half done and working against the clock.

Improv Slice and Insert Quilt - Below is the top prior to quilting. I'm a good third done, but it's time consuming.

Patchwork, Please
- I have fabric cut out for this week's Handy Market Tote.
Be sure and check in next Monday when I'm finally presenting my sew along project, the Sweet Trips Embroidery Pouch!

Star Bright quilt for 100 Quilts for Kids charity quilt drive - With a bit of a delay receiving my backing fabric, I'm behind on finishing this. But the top is done, and even if I don't make the deadline, I'll be finishing and donating this quilt soon.

Debbie, your Slice/Insert quilt is fantastic. Well, you other projects too of course but now I need to sit on my hands again to stop myself from going home and try to make a block or two ;)

Laura said...

the improv slice reminds me of "pick up sticks". Did you ever play that?!

Kirsten said...

LOVE what you've chosen for your tote bag Debbie.

Carla said...

Debbie, when I saw your thumbnail of the City Sampler and the grid it looked like a "mod quilty crossword puzzle"....so modern and fun! Maybe you should consider adding some grey sashing to white blocks and set it all together "as is"! =0

Great to see all your City Sampler blocks in position. They look great. :)I'm quilting along too, but it's a push to keep up!
