WIP Wednesday 8.30.17

Last Wednesday in August.  It's been busy around here.  Our son and I have been trying to squeeze in any summer fun we can before all the pools close on Labor Day.  I've been sewing, just not blogging.  But here's what has happened lately:

I finished the last block (Shoo Fly) for the Marvelous Mini Monday Mystery at Temecula Quilt Co.

I did a few more embroidery stitches on my to-go project for Slow Sunday Stitching.

I finished quilting the Birdy pattern (Circle Lord giant template board) on my Homestead Harvest (pattern by Kim Diehl) quilt.  I has moved on to the binding stage.
I finished quilting the (Circle Lord giant template) Baptist Fan pattern on this customer quilt.

I think it looks great on it!  The curves compliment all those straight lines.

Here's the back.  Pretty!  She chose a polyester batting.

Linking up with Lorna for Let's Be Social #192. 

Sew Fresh Quilts

Linking up with Susan for Midweek Makers #87.

Last week, Susan featured my Big O (from the Block Lotto) quilt on her blog.  How exciting!  You can see the post on her blog and other fun quilts of color here.


  1. Hi, Kathy. Your projects are all beautiful, but I'm swooning over your applique! Can you tell me more about the Circle Lord thing you have on your long arm machine, how it works and what you use it for? I'm a new owner of an APQS Millenium, and the sheer number of tools and gizmos out there is just overwhelming. But I've got a huge pineapple log cabin top nearing completion that might look good with a Baptist fan pattern. Is the Circle Lord what you used for your Baptist fan, and is it beginning-longarmer friendly in your opinion? My first try at following a pantograph were pretty sad, and I thought THAT was gonna be easy! :-)

  2. Always busy! The baptist fans are a perfect choice for that quilt - nice job! Thanks for sharing on Midweek Makers

  3. Oh, wow!! That quilting design really works on your client's quilt!! I still don't see how you are able to do such a nice job of lining up for each pattern repeat. Guess I need MORE practice!!
