W.i.P. Wednesday

No real production has happened since vacation, but at least I have some projects closer to actually starting on this W.i.P. Wednesday. So what you'll mainly see today is the fabric I'll be working with!

Completed projects
Low Volume Swap - Notice I chose the quickest and easiest 'project' to start on. Got these charms cut and will be sending them off in the morning.

Ongoing projects
Modern Crosses quilt - This quilt has been on the "Upcoming Projects" list for months. I was finally able to connect with my sister-in-law and get to the quilt store to look at fabric. She chose curio by basicgrey for moda. I was able to find a couple of jelly rolls online, so they are on their way, and I'll be ordering the background (the new Kona eggshell) and backing (Kona parchment + the curio flowers on orange) fabrics yet this week.
I"ll be using the pattern by Susan Beal, using most of the curio fabrics, but not all, and we're already decided the binding will be scrappy!

Modern Crosses Quilt

Mod Pop Quiltalong with Leanne - she can quilt - I couldn't resist quilting along with Leanne, and have ordered my pattern and templates from Mod Pop creator, Julie of Distant Pickles. I kind of want to use some of my solid stash and am tentatively planning on using my purple stack (looks more purple in person), along with one of my favs - Northcott Pearl as the background. I don't have to cut for several days, so we'll see what I decide for sure. I am planning on doing the 'baby' version, since I just plain love the proportions of the design in that size.

Upcoming projects
* Zakka Style Sew-Along project #24: Fabric Boxes - in a quandary about fabrics!
* FAITH Circle butterfly blocks NEW
* Always Bee Learning New York Beauty blocks NEW
* a quilt to coordinate with my Christmas tree skirt
* scrappy Metrolink
* EZ Dresden Challenge project - won't be done by the deadline, but I'd still like to do a small project
* another frame purse - another sew-in, or shall I tempt fate with a glue-in?

Linking up with W.i.P. Wednesday.


  1. Your palette across all projects reminds of your approaching Fall/Winter season...very calm and restful!

  2. Basic Grey is one of my favorite fabric designers. I love the colors they use!
    Still thinking about the QAL.

  3. Oh I dunno, I always think fabric buying is a successful sewing week ;o)

  4. Those purples are going to look fabulous, Debbie!

  5. Morning Debbie. I am so excited for the low volume swap. I hope my fabrics are nearly to her now. It's been a week I think. Anyway, I have made the modern cross quilt for a new mom, and gave her the book too. Silly me.
    Have a great day!

  6. Oh I wish I had seen that Low Volume swap, great idea for a charm swap! Love your palette for the Mod Pop quilt along, especially since my favorite color is purple!

  7. Look at your perfectly cut charms! The mod pop quilt is going to be great in those colours. Purple and pink have reeeeeaally grown on me since having boys. hehe

  8. My modern crosses quilt is still my favourite, and I love those fabrics you have pulled for Leanne's QAL. Lots of loveliness here.

  9. Looks great, Debbie! That quilt in purple is going to be gorgeous!

  10. Love your Mod Pop fabrics. ?It will be amazing.

  11. Oh love your fabric picks for the Mod pod. I am QAL too and plan to use Summersville.

  12. A great choice of colours for the quilt! =D

  13. cant wait to see your mom pop - it was definitely a great pattern and comes together fairly quickly!

  14. I love curio and have a nice layer cake just waiting for a project so I am looking forward to seeing your modern crosses quilt. I made that pattern a while back now and love it although if you want a short cut let me know.

  15. i love that modern crosses quilt so much! are you going to quilt it like she did with buttons?
