WIP Wednesday 3.12.14

It was just a regular week for me here.  I'm kinda sad I don't have much in the "to be longarmed" category.  I need to get going on some of the other almost done projects so that I have something on the longarm frame.  But here's what happened:

I took on a big project of longarming the Spring Tea raffle quilt for my LQG.

I got it all finished with Circle Lord Swirls.  Here it is taking up all but 3" of my frame.

I finished this wall hanging that was someone else's WIP that I got in some scraps at a garage sale.

Didn't make any progress on my Gypsy Wife QA quilt blocks, but my friend, Julianne, sent me this block.  I also found an awesome spread sheet that has Gypsy Wife info on it!

I did the simple four corners of the Star Light Star Bright QA.

Then I put them all together and did some freehand longarm practice on it.

I sorted strings again and now I only have two little pieces of fabric in my scrap bins that are not sorted.

Your project organization is most impressive. I LOVE the Spring Tea raffle quilt, it must have been very cheerful to have all those colors in front of you.
