WIP Wednesday

I'm happy to report that my sewjo is back!  I've been sewing, quilting, planning and I'm even attending a FMQ workshop this weekend with the wonderful M-R Charbonneau of Quilt Matters.

I've also been doing a little teaching myself.  My daughter is learning how to quilt and started working on her first quilt this week.

So what am I working on specifically?  First off is a mini for a swap I'm participating in over on Instagram (#igminiswap).  Deciding on a design and then fabrics for my partner was no easy task.  I chose a simple pattern with lots of low volume prints and nice pops of colours.  Come back later this week for the big reveal!


I also sent and then received my last blocks for the SuperNova Friendship Swap.  I am literally in love with the blocks my partner Julie and I came up with.  How amazing is this quilt going to be?!


We each get 10 blocks - 9 for the quilt and an extra for a pillow.



The last project I have on the go is a pattern by Meadow Mist Designs (Scrappy Tiles) and I'm using a layer cake I've had in my stash for a long time...


And I'll end this post of my beautiful daughter working on cutting her fabric.  :-)


I'm so happy to have company in my sewing room!

Linking up at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.

What are you working on this week?

  1. I checked out your fmq teacher's blog, it looks like you are going to have a great experience!!!! I LOVE fmq and can't wait to hear some tips you learn or new designs. I have such a hard time keeping my loops even if you find out any tips I'd live to hear them;)

    The mini you are making is going to be beautiful! What are you going to use for binding? I used to be all about stripes (and still love them) but lately I've been doing a lot of solids.

    Is your daughter catching the quilting bug via her art project? I hope so!!!!!!

  2. PS I checked out the scrappy tiles versions and definitely like the ones made with one fabric line better than the truly scrappy ones. I think yours will be gorgeous with anything Bonnie and Camille (or Fig Tree would be another). Looking forward to seeing yours!

  3. I love the mini you are working on. The geese with the low volume are beautiful. I am so excited to see Scrappy Tiles in Marmalade! Marmalade is one of my absolute favorite lines and I am sure the quilt is going to be gorgeous!
