It’s Wednesday morning, it’s dark, rainy and windy. My Grandmother used to call these kind of days ‘Coffe, Cuddle and Sleeping day’. I couldn’t agree with her more. Unfortunately there is a full workday and a basket ball training on todays agenda.
It’s also Wednesday WIP day – be sure to stop by Lee’s WIP Wednesday for more updates and lots of inspiration.
My week was quite productive. I started two and finished one top. Also re-arranged one quilt into two. In other words lots of new projects and no finishes.
First update is without pictures – The Kaffe Fasset Sached Boxes quilt. I brought the diamonds to
to do finish off the pile and maybe decide on the final layout. The boxes came out way stronger than I liked because of the colors I used and to be honest I didn’t like it. My Mum has a good sense of colors and saw the problem immediately. I ended up separating the diamonds into warm and cools colors. And I will make two quilt tops instead of one. Of course it now means a slight set-back because I will have to do a lot more diamonds but I am sure it will be worth it in the end. Sweden
I started and finished another quilt top using my stunning Heirloom FQ’s. The pieces are gigantic and it goes together in no time at all. As much as you know I love the fast projects I thought this one was almost a bit too easy and too fast. I am thrilled however of the result. The blocks are perfect for showing off the beautiful fabric and I wouldn’t change a bit. I am currently working on the back piecing the cut-offs. Can't bear to waste as much as an inch of this wonderful fabric.
Also started another new project – no pictures of this one either. I am piecing my leftover Prince Charming stripes to triangles to make this quilt http://www.filminthefridge.com/2011/10/04/a-nautical-quilt/. I have 12 generous sized triangles now but need some more. These will come as the diamonds progresses. Think I will will use a dark grey as a background
