WIP Wednesday 2.9.22 -- The One With Three Finishes This Week!

 With all the snow outside and the snow days away from school, it was a productive week again. 

This week I'm showing off my little mini that I made.  It's the Kathleen Tracy Valentine Mystery, 2022.  You can find all the details at a group on Facebook.  The group is called Kathleen Tracy Quilts on Facebook.  It measures 13.5" square.

I finished From the Heart which was a sew along with Pam Buda.

I'm also excited to tell you that I finished my wonky string quilt!  This was a stale WIP that I started on New Years Day in 2014 that is now completed because I dedicated each Sunday to working on it until completion.  My next quilt that I will work on during Sundays is the Full Stop quilt.

I started the Stay Centered quilt as part of the RSC21 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2021.) I'm so happy that it has made it to this point so quickly instead of lingering on my WIP list.  I am quilting it with my Circle Lord giant template board called Egyptian Eye.  I really like how it looks on all those neutrals.
You can find the free pattern download for Stay Centered on the APQS site here.

 I made blocks for a newer project that I started just this month.  This one is called Random Ohio Stars!

Bonnie Hunter has a free pattern on her blog called Random Ohio Stars!  I also made the red blocks for January.  These will fit nicely in the empty bin I made almost finishing my string quilt.

I moved an older WIP forward by making waffle blocks.  I haven't made these blocks for a few years.  This was an RSC project started in 2019.

Quilting is more fun than Housework

For some reason I forgot to link up at Love Laugh Quilt for Monday Making.
