WIP Wednesday

It’s been a busy sewing week here at MiMP.  I started and completed my final Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge quilt.  This month was snowball blocks, and the only color I had left to work with was yellow, so that made for an interesting project.

I also started making blocks for my creepy crazy quilt.  I always seem to want to start on a season quilt after the holiday is over.  Maybe it’s because it gives me a full year to get it done.

8" block

Either way, I’m happy with how the 1st block turned out. It will finish at 8″ square. Now to make lots more blocks, in varying sizes.

What are you working on right now?

  1. I am so envious of the lovely prints you have available!

    I was in good hap, my friend not only remembered the Mod Podge, she brought 2 jars! The jars are bigger than what was offered online at huge prices, as well! I showed her the few blocks I have done and what I want to do with the rest. When I asked her what I owed her for it she grinned and said, “If you pay me for that I get to pay for dinner!” She also said it’s been ages since she went to a hobby shop, she had no idea there were soooo many different versions of Mod Podge!

    A question: do you ever print out your own iron-on transfers, or know someone who does–and can you recommend me a quality brand of transfer paper? I’ve looked on Amazon but for all of the brands they offer, half of the opinions say “This is great! It really works” while the other half say, “This is garbage! Don’t waste your money!” for the same brand. I need someone who’s actually used one and found it lasts. Help? *sad puppy eyes*

    1. I’ve never really been pleased with iron-on transfers. I much prefer to purchase the sheets of fabric that are meant to be printed on directly and then sewn into a project. It is pricier, but works a lot better – http://www.joann.com/june-tailor-washable-colorfast-printer-fabric-3-pkg/prd12984.html#q=printer%2Bfabric&start=3

      You can also do this yourself by purchasing a quality white fabric and either taping it to a sheet of paper, or ironing wax paper to the back for stability. The secret is to dry iron it well to set the colors.
