WIP Wednesday 8/17/11

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

It's WIP wednesday again. Already? Seriously? How can that be?
Do you ever need a vacation when you get back from vacation to catch up with laundry, groceries and life in general like I do right now?  Sewing has been minimal, but the fabric has been bountiful, so here's what I got goin' on:

New Projects
 1. I'm signed up and raring to go for my first quilt along!  

It's the Accross the Sea QAL (read more about it here).  

Here is my preliminary pull of fabrics. It's a mix of fat quarters and half yard cuts from my stash. Jury is still out on the multi-colored prints...

What do you think?

1. Rainbow Charm Swap (a.k.a. mission yellow).

I found my yellow and yellow-orange fabric in a fabric shop pit stop along my travels this week!

Yellow - Modern Workshop by Liesl Gibson for Oliver + S for Moda
Yellow-Orange - Strawberry Field by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures Fabrics

Yellow was trickier than I was expecting it to be, but I love both of these! Hopefully my co-swappers will like them too!

No Progress
  1. Quilt with No Name
  2. Scrappy Friendship Quilt (partially quilted)
  3. Log Cabin Flag Quilt (partially quilted)
  4. Quilts for Kids (2 Quilts - in various stages)
  5. Sewing Room Pencil Holder
  6. Thomas the Tank Train Bag
  7. Needle Case
    This week's stats:  
    New projects - 1  
    Completed projects - 0
    Currently in progress - 9


  1. I love the colours you've chosen for the Across The Sea QAL! Sky, sea, and sun!

    I think that the multicoloured prints you have in the pic are fine - although the one in the 'ochre' row is a bit hidden up the back. One or two would be good, but the bulk should definitely be monochromes!

  2. There's something soothing and rich in the colors you've picked. (But, I agree....I like the monochrome better.) And I can't wait to get a piece of the Oliver + S.

  3. Love your colors for the QAl! I think the multicolor prints will be great...adds some interest! And I really like the yellows you've chosen. So excited to get those charms!
