WIP Wednesday

It was yet another super-productive week.  Customers are happy and I'm getting closer to completing some of my own projects.

I finished this customer quilt.  She LOVED the romantic flowers (Cosmos) quilted on it.



This quilt was loaded on the frame and I got to play with my rarely-used Square Dance board.



I did start a new project this year.  It was part of my plan.  It's the Bonnie Hunter Good Fortune Quiltville Mystery.  It started Thanksgiving weekend, 2018.  I am trying to do each step using my Accuquilt dies.  I'll show each step of progress made on Monday's for her linky parties.

This year I took Bonnie's advice and sub-cut my strips after I sewed the strips together.  Here's some perfect little red and neutral "twosie" units that will be sewn into 4-patches.

I used my mother-in-law's fabric sharpie to put vertical lines on my die.  She passed away a few years ago.  It was nice to "visit" with some of her sewing memories as part of this process.  She was an amazing seamstress and did it professionally.  She left her sewing things to me.  I am honored!


Before I knew it I had a nice bag of "twosies".  The thing about this process is that I didn't know how to calculate how many I had in the bag.  Stay tuned as I sew them together into 4-patches to count them.  You can never have too many 4-patches!  It's a win - win situation.



At bowling I worked on this cute little project that is a Christmas present.  Stay tuned for the saying...



I'm enjoying the new little sew-to-go box that I got at a Goodwill Outlet.  I keep it in my truck.

  1. That Cosmos quilt is very pretty and the design you're quilting on the 2nd quilt look very nice. I've never made any of Bonnie's mystery quilts. I look forward to watching your mystery journey. Happy stitching!
