WIP ~ Sept. 28th, 2011

Hey there ~

This has to be my favorite post to create each week.  I love the Work In Progress party at Freshly Pieced, and this has been such a motivator to keep track and get stuff done.  As a master procrastinator I tend to push off until it can’t be pushed anymore.  But since I want to be able to create a WIP post, I have show ‘some’ progress.  Thank you again Lee for hosting such a wonderful link party, and the time you put into doing it each week.

This week I can report that I am making great strides with the Sugar Pop HSTs top. I basted it this weekend by spray basting, and now have the center zig-zags and gray border quilted. I am going to continue the zig-zag lines into the outer border and connect the lines to make diamonds. I think that will help keep the scale of the quilt in line with the quilt, and add another great moment for this quilt.

This weekend I also got started on my snowball table runner using Ready, Set, Snow charms from Moda and some Kona Solids White.  I made a good start, but have probably half the charm pack to still make into these blocks.  I am using 2″ squares of the white.  It kinda takes away from the ‘snowball’ fell, but I am hoping once they are pieced together with the white sashing they will fell more like traditional snowballs.  When I started I liked the look of the 2″ squares for the corners over the 1.5″ squares.  Now I kind wish I had stuck with the 1.5″.  Maybe I will do some of both.  I have plenty of 1.5″ squares already cut.

Do you think it would look weird to have both sizes in the table runner?

No project to report on the other quilts.  But…

I added a fun set of pennants to the Girls’ Room, and received fabric orders for two top secret projects!  Yay!

Kimberlee, Thank you for visiting!

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. I love comments, and will return the favor! ~ Kimberlee

    Your sugar pops quilt is just so pretty. I love it more every time i see it! Can’t wait to see your secret projects. I have a few of those myself but I’ve got to get motivated to get them done! I don’t think two sizes of snowballs would look bad because REAL snowballs are different sizes!

    The Super Pop HST is so pretty. The colors looks great next to the gray! The table runner is going to look great with whatever you decide!
