WIP Roundup

It’s been a while since I did a full WIP post, where I actually talked about all of the projects I have going, instead of just the ones I’m actively working on. And with my holiday break coming up, I feel like this is a great time to remind myself you what all I really have going on.

Quilts Waiting To Be Quilted

Impromptu Double Exposure
DSC_8258-600x397The “Impromptu” quilt top has also been done for ages, but it’s a little further along that the “Double Exposure” quilt is right now.  The “Impromptu” quilt has been basted, and is ready for quilting.  It would actually be quilted if I hadn’t planned different color threads for the front and back when I was having tension issues.  Those are solved, at least temporarily now, so I should really get on with quilting this one – especially since every quilting pin I own is on it. DSC_4912-600x397The “Double Exposure” quilt top has been finished for ages. I even have backing fabric. I just haven’t decided if I want to try quilting this one on my machine, or if I’d like to send it out for quilting.

Partially Pieced Quilt Tops

Neutral I Spy Double Wedding Ring
DSC_9212-600x397My original plan was for this quilt to be a baby quilt for Huxley, but after I got started, I just wasn’t feeling it anymore.  So this project is on hold for the moment, waiting for more inspiration to strike. DSC_9004-600x397This double wedding ring was started with fabrics that I got for Christmas from my sister.  I love how it’s looking so far, but with all the curved piecing, I really need to be in the mood to work on it.
Easter Crazy Quilt Rabbit Medallion
DSC_7610a-600x560This quilt is my version of an Easter quilt that isn’t covered in bunnies.  I found some beautiful religious fabrics that work well with the color scheme of my house and aren’t specifically Christmas prints. I just need to get back into the mood to do more handwork. DSC_7649-600x397This quilt was inspired by all of the medallion quilts that I saw in the blog-o-sphere last year.  My version was designed around a fun panel print that I picked up at one of my local fabric shops.  I think I stopped working on this when I ran out of white thread, but didn’t get back to it after I picked it up. And there is only one more border to add, so I’m just being a slacker about getting this one done.
Spooky Crazy Quilt
12227186_10105707249328528_483747432605925337_nI just started this crazy quilt, and I’m sure you’ll ask why since Halloween is already over, and I already have another crazy quilt started.  However, which this one does use my crazy quilt piecing technique, I do not intend to incorporate hand work.  It will finish similarly to my Valentine’s Day crazy quilt.

 

Quilts Which Have a Fabric or Design

Golden Books Quilt(s) Mini Squares and Strips
little_golden_book_the_fuzzy_duckling_100_cotton_fabric_book_panel_06aa6512I picked up some Little Golden Books fabric panels that I intend to fussy cut and turn into a quilt. I just need to decide how I want to lay out the design. I’m not sure yet, but I may have enough fabric to make this into 2 baby quilts. IMG_4144_thumb1I have a collection of fabrics from Cotton + Steel and Art Gallery Fabrics that I’m hoping to turn into a miniaturized version of the Cluck Cluck Sew Squares and Strips quilt pattern.
Gamer Quilt Wall Art
8bitalienI have worked up an 8-bit design in black and white that will be an homage to old-school video gaming. il_340x270.640005400_sfxaI picked up this Cori Dantini fabric panel during an after Christmas sale a couple years ago and am hoping to get around to doing some hand embroidery to make each of the images into seasonal artwork for the walls.

    1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Vicki! I usually only post what I’ve been actively working on, but I figured it was time for a big update. Mostly to remind myself what projects I need to be working on.
