WIP Wednesday - HSTs, a Swoon and some Geese

I've been busy this week. My schedule at work is slowly getting back to normal and I'm not so exhausted when I get home at night so I've been able to sit at my sewing machine for a little bit before going to bed.

First on my to do list this week was the Star Surround QAL weekly assignment... HSTs... Lots of them.

Sorry about the really bad picture... It's late and the lighting in my sewing room isn't great at night. So you can't really tell from that awful picture, but those HSTs are almost perfect! :-). And can you see that pile over there? Yes, I had to trim ALL those HSTs!

Next, I pieced my fifth Swoon block.

I love that navy fabric!

And finally, I've playing with some paper piecing again this week and I completed my first Circle of Flying Geese block.

I plan on making 3 more blocks and turn them into a nice wall hanging. I loved making this block! So much fun.

And that's what's been happening in my little corner of the world. How about you? What have you been up to lately? If you are looking for inspiration, why don't you click on that WIP Wednesday button on my sidebar and check out what everyone around blogland has been working on.

Talk to you soon!




  1. I love your modern circle of flying geese.

  2. I know, that's a lot of HST's to trim all at once. But it is so nice to have them all just perfect :) I love your swoon block, just stunning!

  3. I just finished my Star Surround HSTs last night too, 144 of them, ugh. But they are gorgeous so its all good lol. I like your swoon and I LOVE the circle of geese! I have not made one yet and really want to as well. Was it difficult? Or did it go smoothly?

    I am stopping by from the WIP hop, hop on by if you get the chance :) http://domesticdeficitdisorder.blogspot.com/2013/07/wip-wednesday-july-31st-edition.html

  5. Beautiful flying geese block! So striking!

  6. Yes, that navy fabric on your swoon block is gorgeous. Great job on all of those HSTs.

  7. Oh my goodness I love all of it! I am doing the Star Surround too, a glutton for punishment with the new baby, I know. I love your fabric for it and I am so not looking forward to all that trimming. The swoon is so fancy too! That circle of geese is perfect!
