Work In Progress Wednesday

Another edition with crappy photos. Sorry guys. If only the sun would come out.  Here's what's going on this week.

Finished: Charity quilt. Again, waiting on the sun to take some real photos of this before I send it off. I'll do a full post with all details when I get those photos.


In progress: Made some more center strips for my X Blocks. I'll have to lay this one out soon and see how big it is.



Got a bunch more scrappy hourglasses finished. These have made a good leader and ender project. And I need a bigger container for these! They are only 3.5" finished so I am going to need a LOT of them.

Which reminds me, where do people get those giant zippie bags? Every once in a while I get one in a swap or bee and I always wonder where they come from. I know my grocery store doesn't have anything bigger than gallon size.




New: 
I started putting together my dresdens for the Bunny Hill Scrappy Plate Club.  Instead of going scrappy, I used this color palate from Design Seeds and pulled a bunch of FQ's. I realized my scraps were basically too small for this.

But because there are so many colors in this one, I think the Dresdens look pretty scrappy anyway! I also wish I had chosen some brighter colors. These are feeling a little dull to me. But, I've cut all the wedges so I'll keep going on this one.



And I finally started cutting my Kitchen Windows quilt. I'm way more excited about these colors! I've been hanging on to that Sanctuary fabric for a long time.



Stalled:
bibs
backing for Double wedding ring.

total WIP: 7

For the record, I count zero crappy photos :) I love those X blocks you're working on, they look fantastic, and so do your scrappy dresdens!! The super mondo giant Ziplocs I get come from Wal-Mart, I think, or Home Depot. Hope that helps!

I'm so partial to Dresden's. The colors in yours are fabulous!

Kelli said...

I LOVE your dresdens. I could see where you might think they're dull, but honestly, I think when you get them altogether, especially if you use a light background color, the quilt will be absolutely stunning.

Jacey said...

Your kitchen windows quilt will be fabulous. Those colors sing! I think Kelli's right about the dresdens. They will be awesome with the right background. I like them!
