I finished the top of this quilt, which was no more than fabric and a thought last week. I’m hoping to finish it by next weekend, so everything else keeps getting pushed aside.
side note – it’s for a high school friend’s GRAND daughter. When did my classmates become old enough to be grand parents?! I don’t feel that old. But, my daughter just got her driver’s learning permit this week – so I might age a lot between this WIP Wednesday and the next.
If you look at the picture too long, you might get dizzy. I did. something about the focus. I really need to learn more about photography.
with my HR mermaid Swoon blocks, who are playing with the sea animals until I can give them more attention.
The third block of the Summer Love Swoon was pieced this week. Here's what's great about the online quilting community. It's been pointed out to me since posting this pic on flickr that the top goose is flying the wrong way! I'd like to think I'd've caught that before gifting it, but what if I hadn't??? of course, now I'm back to an unfinished block again. Oh the joy of the seamripper...
This needs to be finished by the end of the month. I’m a little stumped on the fourth block. I’m hoping the fourth completes the set, but I have a suspicion that I might need to make a fifth block and put the “extra” on the back of the quilt, which could make for a nice back, so not the end of the world. I love this light blue Joel Dewberry fabric – I have it in the darker blue for the back of the Puddle Jumper quilt, which is currently on the back burner.
the elephants are still hanging around waiting for me to get to them. They’re such patient animals, so kind – they say “no pressure – and hey, that block looks great!”. I like the support – they’d be nice to keep, but, alas, they too are destined for a friend’s baby. They have a July due date, so still some time left to enjoy them on my design wall.
maybe they should've mentioned that errant goose?
and I finished a runner for my desk at work, which wasn’t on last week’s list at all :-) (there’s more detail on that in my last post.)
hoping to get to play with this week: Farmer’s Wife QAL, Pickle Dish (!), Pop Stars. thinking of starting this week: Melly & Me Dee Dee, Funky Friends Factory Sammy Shark. That Heather Bailey/Jenean Morrison elephant seduced me to the softie side (4/15/12 entry, he’s worth a look!).
Happy WIP Week everyone!! It’s nice to be part of this club. :-)
