WIP Wednesday 2.26.14

It's been another icy, winter-weather week.  That means I got a lot done!  Check it out:

I finished two Picadilly Circle blocks with the help of the RSC14 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge '14).

I was busy longarming.  I turned in FOUR longarmed quilts to our local quilt guild (LQG).

I am going to finish this WIP that was someone else's that was mixed in with some of the scraps that I bought at a garage sale a couple of summers ago.  I quilted it on my Husqvarna sewing machine.

I have my sights on the Triangle QA that starts March 21.  Time to start another project with all these finishes!  Fabric needs to be pulled from my stash.


I got eight more blocks done on my Finding Nemo Scrappy Trip quilt.  This makes four rows.

I loaded my Star Surround quilt on the frame and finished longarming it.

I loaded my 2nd Split Decision quilt on the frame an it won't be long until that one is done.  But this leaves me with just one quilt in the "to be longarmed" box.  I better get piecing!

Finishing up all these projects and getting close to ending a couple more, I started in on the Star Light Star Bright QA at Happy Quilting.  This will be a mini quilt that will be a table topper.  This is just the center.

Busy busy busy! Love that black triangle / rainbow quilt! Looking forward to 'seeing' you at the quilt-along!

Wow. Someone is pushing the pedal to the metal! That string triangle quilt is gorgeous, I love the look of the brights next to the black. Nice job!

Holy Toledo! I am following you for sure because I totally need this GET R' DONE inspiration! Awesome job - great quilting! You said you quilted one of the quilts on a Husqvarna - can I ask which one? I have DDD and usually quilt on my Juki - just cannot figure out tension on the DDD - any help would be appreciated!

WOW. I am both envious and intimidated by that list!
