WIP Wednesday - Busy, Busy!

Time for another progress report on the WIPs!

I've been busy this week; it feels really good to finally be productive in the sewing room.

First, I finished the panels for those curtains I was working on last week. And now that they are done, I'm kinda liking them. :-)

Please ignore the somewhat bizarre view in the background and the fact that the panels are in desperate need of some pressing. Each panel measures about 24" wide by 72" high. I just need to find the backing fabric, sew them together and I'm done.

Next up is a new project - Modern Crosses.

I'm following Elizabeth Hartman's pattern from her Craftsy class (which I love!). I'm using fat quarters in blues and greens with a Kona Snow background. So far, I'm really enjoying making these blocks.

And finally, I finished quilting my Christmas quilt this weekend - full reveal later this week - so I got started on the quilting on Canasta.

Little colourful baskets surrounded by swirls.

I will be linking up at Lee's for WIP Wednesday - why don't you do the same? :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

You know - I have a quilt in my queue ready to be quilted. Everytime I see those swirls, I just love them. Maybe I should give it a go.

Congrats on the panels, they look great!

Congratulations on your panels. Nice to finish something you don't really want to do. Great card trick blocks.
