WIP Wednesday


Progress is being made on my two currently active WIPs (little steps, but getting there). My Chicopee fabrics have been transformed into this pile of 3" squares. Hopefully not too much longer until they are sewn together :o)



And Groove is slowly but surely getting closer to finished. I realise I've been beating you around the head with this one - so this will be the last you'll see of it before the final reveal :o) I'm hoping to soldier on and get this done by the end of the week - I'm about 3/4 done. I'll actually be a bit sad to finish this - I'm really loving quilting it, despite the length of time it's taken.


As always, as I'm getting close to the end of a project, my mind is buzzing toward what's next. I really want to knock over a few long term WIPs (possibly Stained, maybe Mendocino) but I have sooooo many other quilts in my head... Too much fabric, too little time.

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced - and looking foward to seeing what everyone has been up to!

The Chicopee stacks look great, and of course you know I love the groovy quilt, no matter how many times you've shown it.

You can beat me around the head with your groove quilt as much as you like! Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Mandy said...

those wee squares are great! What a lot of work in such a tiny thing! Great job!

Nati said...

I love the Grrovy quilt, since the patter is out I have been thinking of doing it myself! Maybe not too long now, but have to finish a few WIP first! Visiting from freshly pieced!

Adrianne said...

The quilting on your groove quilt is beautiful - I think it really enhances the design. Your chicopee stacks look stunning as well. I have the same problem with too many ideas, not enough time.

Nat at Made in Home said...

The Chicopee looks great.. cannot wait to see what you do with it. Feeling the same about posting about the Totally Groovy QAL every week - it needs to be finished now!

The Thompsons said...

Beautiful quilting! I love the colors you chose for your Grooves quilt.

MBMathis said...

I'm still a little fearful of curved piecing. I'll get there, but yours is beautiful to aspire to.

Katy Cameron said...

Cute wee tips! Looking forward to seeing the grand reveal, and what you come up with next

Patti said...

Can hardly wait to see what you do with your Chicopee! Glad I'm not the only one dragging her feet on quilting Groove!

Mina said...

Rachel said...

Awesome Groove quilt!

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

I love it!!!!! I want to do this one.

Cherie said...

The little blocks look so pretty in those colours. It's always sad coming to the end of a project, but great to be able to finally use it =D

Kirsten said...

Love the Chicopee blocks - and of course your Groove is just fabulous!

Jenelle said...

Gorgeous Chicopee blocks for sure. Your groove is also going to be amazing! I don't mind see lots more photos of it. :)

Jessica said...

Both WIPs are looking great! Can't wait to see the full reveal!

Do I see a little bit of natural linen making the Chicopee 'pop'? Your Free Motion labour is looking mighty good on the 'groove' so make sure you give us lots of close ups when you finish up.
