If you remember, my current WIPs that I posted about last month are the PoD, the diamond quilt, and an unannounced quilt that I had just finished cutting last month. My UFO challenge projects are the unannounced quilt mentioned above (due in Dec.), a Valentine's themed throw pillow - not started yet (due in Feb.), "Foxy Tumblers" quilt (due in April), and a blue quilt for my boyfriend, Shain - also not started yet (due in June). One last WIP to add to this (giant) list is a mug rug for the guild holiday party/meeting. Quite a list! Let's get started!
2 more blocks completed puts me at 15/30 blocks pieced: 1/2 way done!
The Diamond Quilt:
32 blocks completed. Please note the adorable Noteworthy by Sweetwater block above, as well as 2 more fabrics I've picked up along the way to add in....ooppps!
The 'Unannounced' Quilt:
The unannounced quilt from last WIPW will henceforth be known as Pixelated Heart. It was just a stack of 5" squares last month, primarily Cuzco by Kate Spain for Moda. This is my December UFO challenge item and I plan on giving it as a Christmas present. Hopefully I can get the borders on this week and load it on to the Innova. I am having a hard time deciding what color to use for the quilting. The back is going to be orange flannel. Any suggestions?
April UFO item. Probably going to be a baby quilt. I have some tumblers cut out but no real progress on this yet.
I hate to ruin the surprise, but I think I am going to incorporate this paper-pieced guy in to my mug rug for the swap; how fun and festive with out being too "Christmas-y".
That's all for this edition of WIPW. I hope I didn't bore you too much! See you 12/18/13 for the next installment...wish me luck getting things done! If I do complete things before 12/18, I AM going to post them early to share them with you guys and to attempt to slim down next month's post. Please post a comment below with a link to your WIPs; I would love to see them! I'm linking with Lee at Freshly Pieced.
