WIP Wednesday 12.31.14


Well, I didn't meet my goal of cutting my WIPs in half this year.  Oh well...  I'm addicted to quilting.  I am done posting my WIP count at the end of the year.  I will have another finishes for 2014 post (I hope).  But for now, I am super happy with what I have accomplished. 

I found a pattern in a library book.  This little 27" square quilt is called Plaid Patches.  It is in the book Fast, Fun, and Fabulous Quilts, by Connie Tesene and Mary Tendall of Country Threads.  I'm so lucky our county library has access to so many fun quilt books.  I look at the online catalog, make my selection, and magically the book is delivered to my local library for pick-up.  And it's all FREE!!!  Woot woot!  I still had these 1.5" strips from the November RSC14 handy and did this:

Now to find a simple backing and think of how to quilt it.  The fun begins.  Looking forward to a lot in the RSC15 next year.  Here are some of my plans -- and yes, it's a HUGE list!

1.  Finish the above quilt (quilt and bind).
2.  Finish the Kite Girl quilt (will make a red one and then decide on how to sash.)
3.  Finish my Picadilly Circle quilt (need light & dark greens, yellow, and maroon--4 blocks)
4.  Finish the Scrumption Butter Churn (churn dash) quilt -- all blocks made needs sashing.
5.  Quilt the Little Letters quilt -- (quilt and bind).
6.  Continue making Urban Classics blocks in different colors (only made 2 so far).
7.  Continue Crown on Thorns blocks on the blue months.
8.  Make Scrap Crystals blocks on the blue and green months.
9.  Continue Fortune Teller blocks each month (strings blocks).  Only about 8 or so are made.
10. Scrappy string blocks in each color (with one little 2" x 3" piece of white).
11. Continue making rainbow colored knot blocks until I have enough for a crib quilt.
12.  Continue making underpants blocks.
13.  Start the RSC15 stars QA.

Clue #5 for Grand Illusion (by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville) was done in a jiffy.
Here are my blocks for this week.

I did start SOMETHING NEW again this week.  No frets -- it's a baby quilt.  The top will be done in no time.  I am changing the size of the quilt.  It's Urban Churn Dash -- A Simple Sew Along at Piece N Quilt.

With help from my Accuquilt GO! Baby I had everything cut in about an hour!  Step 1 complete!


Frosty & Friends is a pattern by Debbie Mumm.  It is in a book from 1992 called Quick Country Quilting.  

I finished all the churn dash blocks for the Scrumptious Butter Churn Quilt.  Here's my layout minus the yellow sashing and cornerstones.  I got everything cut today.  Pattern for the Scrumptious Butter Churn by Jo at Jo's Country Junction.

I finished this adorable doll quilt.  This was a quilt along with Lori at Humble Quilts.  You can find the start of the mystery here.

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!
