WIP Wednesday

 Today is another one of those days where I think I can't believe it is already Wednesday again.  I've been doing a lot of sewing this week but I'm not sure I am making any real progress.  I've been super distracted in my sewing space which means I tend to start a lot of things all at once.

In my quest to make all things Bonnie & Camille I started working on Dilly Dally.  There are over 80 HST's in this quilt.  I made this big stack but have yet to trim them up.  The bug I had last week is still clouding my brain and making it somewhat difficult to focus so after sewing up these units I decided precision piecing probably wasn't in the cards and moved on to something else.

I picked up some Chicopee and Florance scraps over on the great fabric destash.  I knew after seeing this quilt by my friend Leanne that I really wanted to make a scrappy trip along using Chicopee but I thought for sure I had missed out on the collection.  I was lucky enough to find scraps in the perfect size on the destash and by adding in my hope valley I should have just enough.  After I made my second block I thought about calling it quits because I wasn't sure I really loved it but after some Instagram encouragement I kept going and I have four blocks done.

Feeling guilty for starting something new I figured I should finish up one of the active projects in my space. So I finished piecing together my Turning Twenty Again blocks.  I don't have floor space large enough to lay this one all out so it's going to have to wait just a little bit to get put together.  I'm thinking next time I go to my mom and dad's I will take this along to finish.

Finally this week I put up a post about my Complications Quilt since so many of you had asked for help making one similar.  You can find the information here and here.  If you make one of these I'd love to see it.  Leave a comment or tag it with #patchworkpuzzle over on Instagram so I can check it out.

That's it for me, head over to Lee's to see what everyone else is up to this week.

  1. Your orange print quilt block looks very promising - it will be a beautiful finish.
