WIP Wednesday

I've had a ton of sewing energy of late - which has partly been channelled into projects I need to be working on, partly into something new ;o).

I finished my Windsor Lane baby quilt today - and I'm visiting the very new mum tomorrow with my sister to give it to her, so just a sneak peek for now. I'm really happy with how it finished up (although if you'd asked me last night during the four hour un-quilting marathon I may not have been so enthusiastic. Full details tomorrow!)


I've also made another couple of blocks for my HFWYG QAL quilt - these are called Clay's Choice and the tutorial can be found here. Busy blocks, but I really love the design of these - another block that would make an amazing quilt.




I've also cut and nearly finished my first Wiksten Tova top (I just need to insert the sleeves). Back when I started sewing (nearly 2 years ago now) I did a lot of garment making - and it's really nice to be doing it again! The Tova pattern is so easy to follow - so much so that I've ordered fabric for another couple (thankyou Black Friday sales!!). I haven't taken any pictures so far - so depending on how brave I am there may be a blog post with the big reveal in a few days :o)

I hope everyone is having a great week. I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced (button in sidebar) - and looking forward to checking out everyone's works in progress!

The quilt looks lovely!
I would love to see your Tova top...I started out dressmaking before I got into patchwork and I am dying to make some clothes once my QAL quilt is finished.

I can't wait until tomorrow when you show off the whole quilt but I had to tell you how much I loved your pink plaid binding you put on the quilt.

The blocks look fabulous in those fabrics, not at all busy

Beautiful projects! Glad that you made it past the "unsewing" to a finish.

Looks like a lovely quilt!

Loving those star blocks too!

Katy Cameron said...

Great blocks, although I'm not sure I could do all those triangles without entirely losing the plot!

A great choice of fabrics for your blocks- really effective!
