Friday in the craft blog world is Work In Progress (WIP) Friday. So here are the three quilts I have in progress. In progress, in this case, means started but not finished. I’m not really making much progress lately… for some reason…
1. Purple, Green, and Cream colored quilt for our king-sized bed. We planned on 12 inch blocks, randomly arranged. We laid out the rows across the bed. Then we realized it would look cooler if the rows were different widths. So I sewed the rows together, then cut two of them apart into skinnier rows. One was cut in half, the other was cut into 1/3 and 2/3. If we could manage to lay it back out to choose the new order of the rows pretty soon, I think it could get done by the end of the year. I’m eyeing Thanksgiving weekend hopefully, since there will be people around to cuddle the baby.
2. Earlier attempt at a quilt for our bed, made entirely of scraps of previous projects. 2160 rectangles, each 2.5 by 3.5 inches. You can perhaps understand why this didn’t get done, and we moved on to the 12 inch blocks idea. (Side note: when I suggested putting this one on hold and trying to get the other one done before the baby was born, C-Man expressed trepidations about starting another project before this one was completed. Ha ha ha ha ha! He is not a crafter.) But this is a nice one to do in 20 minute increments here and there, because it’s just chain piecing and there’s no risk I’ll run out and have to stand up and iron any time soon.
3. T-shirt quilt for a certain someone who helped me paint my quilt studio. I am trying not to feel guilty about not getting this done before I had the baby, since I know the recipient doesn’t hold it against me, but I wish I had finished it already. I don’t know when I would have done it, but I wish I had.
