WIP Wednesday #28

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Completed project:  This week flew by!  I struggled with my first attempt at paper piecing.  But the end result was a really nice block for the Bluepatch Quilter Mystery Quilt.

I am excited for the We Can Do It skill builder to start on 6/17.  Since this picture I have added some of my mom's vintage fabrics in browns that go perfect with these colors.  I am so happy with these color combos.  I am getting better at the color thing (I think.)  Here are some of the fabrics for my color choices on that project. 

Also new this week, I tried my new stich-in-the-ditch foot to quilt and finish the Sunflower Seeds QA.  What a disaster!  The backing moved.  I still have two rows of stitches to remove with the stitch ripper.  Lesson learned on that one.  My co-worker that is having the baby is leaving TODAY!  I won't be able to give it to her for her last day of work and will have to extend the project until her baby shower on July 17th.  Hopefully it will be finished then.

  7. Nice block! I am being tempted by this skill builder with everyone's pretty fabrics. These are beautiful!! I hope you finish that baby quilt in time.

  8. Lovely work! I have never tried a stitch in the ditch presser foot, did it cause the moving back?

  9. Your mystery block looks great. I'll have to check that out!

  10. Love the mystery block. Gorgeous! Sorry about your fabric moving on you. I feel for you. My machine is in the shop getting repaired and I had to borrow one from a friend. sigh... but we'll get by!
