WIP Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone! I've got a few things in the works this WIP Wednesday, but the project that's been keeping really busy this week is the 2012 Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery BOM. I pieced the last block at the beginning of June and I'm now piecing the top together.

If you signed up for a FQS BOM in the past, you know that the finishing design is always a little bit involved... To say the least. This year is no different. Lots and lots of flying geese (thank goodness for my Fit To Be Geese ruler!).

I've got the middle part all done. I just need to get going on the 3 - yes 3 - borders and I'll be all finished! Yay!

I loved making these blocks and the fabric from the Vintage Modern collection by Bonnie and Camille is just so yummy.

Some of the other projects I'm working on are my Swoon blocks, quilting Two Percent (which is almost done - so come back for a reveal post later this week!)

Linking up at Lee's for WIP Wednesday (click the button in my sidebar to check out all the WIPs).




  1. So pretty, is the setting of the white and red fabric, or did you sew the pieces together. Lots of nice work on this one. I love sampler quilts.

    1. Trying again with my comment, little spelling error. I love your quilt Izzy. I'm hoping to finish mine sometime soon. I agree, the flying geese ruler is great.

  3. Your quilt caught my eye when I was flicking through the pages at Freshly Pieced, it is really beautiful. I love your choice of colours - such a great job!

  4. Love the idea of using the Flying Geese to sash the blocks. Fabulous stuff.

  5. Oh, so this is what this quilt will look like;) Looks really great!

  6. Gorgeous! It is great to see all the blocks together and I love the red and white stripe strips in between the rows. Beautiful flying geese, too. I am going to look for that ruler!

  7. It's such a lovely quilt. Well done! I love the setting of it. The flying geese really set it off.

  8. It is so beautiful! I love how the blocks look set into the sashing! It inspires me to catch up (3 more blocks go go!).

  9. This is so fancy! I wanted to make this one but didn't have the money to fork over when I needed it. I love the look of yours and all those geese are crazy good!

  10. I am halfway through the last block of the Designer BOM myself! I love the way you have put yours together! It looks fantastic, well done!
