WIP Wednesday – Round 9

Tree Quilt for Project QUILTING's Off Season - It's All in your initials challengeStill sitting and waiting for Baby #3 to decide to join us so I do have a few things to report on this week. 

the Bloom Quilt:

Bloom QUILT - WIP I have managed to get all of the largest and second largest ‘blooms’ sewn onto the quilt.  I apologize about the absolutely terrible pictures – hope to get some better ones once the weather takes a turn for ‘normal’. 

Patchwork Squared Modern Solids Quilt Along

Blocks 1 - 5:   Patchwork Squared Modern Solids Quilt Along

Nothing new since yesterday

Fabric Rosette’s

RosettesI made a few more rosettes last week…still not sure what I’m going to do with them… 

Pillow Cases

My creation - Pillow Case Tops for Kelsey's WeddingA friend of mine is getting married in June.  She’s themed her wedding after a patchwork quilt.  Using some of the scraps from various wedding projects I’ve created these 10 pillow tops for decorations at the wedding. They range from 14” to 16” to 18” pillows and I had a TON of fun making them!  Now I just have to add the backs…

Quilted Art Tote Bag

Last year I applied for an amazing craft fair in Milwaukee, WI – Art Vs. Craft – I didn’t get in.  Instead of getting upset about the rejection I’m using it as a motivator for me to make more of my ‘artsy’ creations and I’ll cross my fingers that those will get me in this year.Art Tote - Side 2Some of what I’m doing is making more bags and creations using hand painted fabric (by me).  This is a bag I started on Monday – I’m combining my hand-painted fabric with a fun pink commercial print and then quilting it with really tight, geometric patterns. Art Tote - Side 1 Now I just have to sew up the bag, the lining and add the handles and I’ll have a functional piece of art.

English Paper Pieced Project

English Paper Pieced Applique to Hat

I really enjoyed the handwork involved in all of my yoyo’s for the Bloom Quilt so I decided it was time for me to try English Paper Piecing.  Here’s the first ‘piece’ I made – just a small embellishment for a bucket hat…

Candy Drop and Vintage Shoe Button Cha Cha Rings

Cha Cha RingsI took a break from my sewing machine yesterday and I made up some new cha cha rings – both vintage shoe button ones and candy drop ones.  I enjoyed mixing up my creativeness a bit and it’s always nice to have a project I can work on not in the basement.

 

Off Season Project QUIL-TING Challenge – It’s All in Your Initials

Project QUILTING - Off Season Challenge - It's All in Your Initials - WIP So, here are my three colors -

K(im): Kohl

A(nn): Ash

L(apacek): LimeProject QUILTING - Off Season Challenge - It's All in Your Initials - WIP I decided to keep my project small and simple – with hopefully lots of drama inside of that.  My first step was to fuse the leaves on.  Project QUILTING - Off Season Challenge - It's All in Your Initials - WIPThen, I stitched in my tree for my plans to try my hand at reverse applique. Project QUILTING - Off Season Challenge - It's All in Your Initials - WIP I free motion raw edge apppliqued the leaves and then I started to cut away the tree.Project QUILTING - Off Season Challenge - It's All in Your Initials - WIP Here it is!Tree Quilt for Project QUILTING's Off Season - It's All in your initials challenge My next step was embellishing.  I knew my tree needed a ‘tire’ swing so I added that on first.  Then, I really loved how the buttons looked in Quilties Button Willow Piece and I decided I needed to try using that sort of effect on my quilt – for the grass.  I’m still working on putting them all in place.  I know I could use my machine to put the buttons on, but it’s turned into a nice couch project which I need these days.  Once the buttons are one…we’ll just have to see what else ‘needs’ to be added.
