WIP Wednesday - low lighting edition

I'm back from our family vacation and working on getting back to normal. Putting together this WIP list always helps me figure out what I'm doing in the sewing room too. The only issue this week, it's a dreary day. I got used to that Florida sunshine quickly and I'm struggling taking photos here in dark Pennsylvania!

Finished:
My baby quilt top is finished. This was done using Jaybird Quilts Fast Forward pattern. Anyone have good ideas for quilting on this one? I'm actually thinking about sending this away so I can get some custom work on it. But it's small enough I really should do it myself.

In progress:
Lots of binding this week. The raindrop print (from Prince Charming) will be the binding for the baby quilt.


My mom's Aviary Birdbath quilt is on it's way back to me (wohoo) and this will become the binding for that one.


I've started pulling scraps for a scrappy hourglass project. I've never done a scrappy project and it's about time (if you look at my scrap piles!)

And oh... the Double Wedding Rings. This is on slow going. My first attempts at sewing the arcs has not been going well. This is the best I've got so far and it's a hot mess! I think I'll be taking this to PMQG's sewing night on Friday to spend some time on it. It's always easier to seam rip when you have company to talk to.

New on my list and probably taking top spot this week is a pink flannel nighty for my daughter for my top secret Christmas card photo. hahaha!

Needing attention:
apron
do good stitches quilt
baby scrapbook album
curtains
nursery decorations
sew modern bee x-quilt

Isn't this crappy weather the worst? I have been struggling with pictures lately too. Our house is dark to begin with and then when you add the winter darkness it looks like we live in a cave. I've resorted to trying to take all of my pictures on the weekend when I can get outside when it's light out.

I love the Aviary line! I'm excited to see the finished quilt!

Ugh I hear ya the weather has been not much better here in Pittsburgh either! I'm begging the hubs to build me a DIY light box to help...your projects look fabulous! Great prints for your bindings, and that baby quilt is going to be adorable, can't wait to see more!

Cute jammies!!

I can't wait to see the baby quilt in all it's glory!

And the double wedding rings look so pretty! Good luck with those!

Kelsey said...

That raindrop fabric is beautiful :) Can't wait to see the finished quilts!

Lee said...

The baby quilt is beautiful! Totally jealous of all that Neptune I see in there! : ) And I did get your email about the header, I'm making the color changes today! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday.

Woohoo! It's so exciting to get to the binding stage of a quilt! Oof on the double wedding ring. Maybe your PMQG peeps will have some insight? The tutorials online make the curved piecing look way too easy to be true. Please do share if you discover a secret trick!

I love the raindrops for the binding for the baby quilt! I just made a quilt with that Aviary print as the focus in a different colorway. I think the black background will make a great binding too. Maybe someone at our sewing night is experienced in doing a DWR and can help?

Love the baby quilt - it definitely wants some fancy stuff in the solid area.

I love the binding stage of a quilt - soooo close to being done. Enjoy!

Becky said...

Lookin' good! Maybe some pretty yellow in the black to remind you of Florida? LOL Just kidding. I for one have sent out baby quilts to be done on a long arm... There's no shame if you can afford it! They are pretty cheap too, speaking of which...

Jacey said...

Lots of cuteness, and lots of Tula!! You've got some big finishes coming up, I see. Yay! And I hope your DWR gets easier for you. That is quite a tricky pattern!

Katie B. said...

I love your boy quilt! Great fabrics and pattern.

Bree said...

Ooohhh...I can't wait to see how your Birdbath quilt looks when you get it back!

Katy Cameron said...

Hmm, okay, I've never seen a top secret pink flannel nighty Christmas phot before lol

Love the look of this week's creations, and good luck with your wedding rings!

Margaret said...

applique those arcs with a clear thread! If you press the ovals around templar with starch (I can elaborate), then they are all identical in size and easy to stitch on top of the pieced arcs. jmho...

Marci Girl said...

Oh your baby quilt is so fabulous! I love that pattern! Can not wait to see those Pajamas!
