WIP #17

Sometimes, I just need to blog in order to organize my projects.  This is what I have working in process…

1)  The quilt that I had no progress on:  My Quilt of Valor Quilt.

2)  The quilt-along that I am a part of–skill builder sampler.  I have finished the raw edge orange peel applique block, the circle applique block, and the floral applique block.



3)  Last time, I showed an image of some Dolce fabric mixed with solid scraps.  This pile resulted into two Dolce Stars quilts.  While I was making these two quilts, I also made another simple square quilt with fabric from Annette Tatum’s House Collection.  Learn more about these quilts here.

4) I am working on another picnics and fairgrounds quilt.  This one is made using log cabins–48 log cabins to be exact.

I took this picture on a very windy day.  These photos were taken just before it flew off of the hangers.  Good thing I was holding on to one corner!

5)  I had enough left overs from this log cabin quilt to make a baby quilt.

6)  I am also working on a paper piecing quilt.  Do you ever see two or more quilts and think, “If only I could combine those and produce a quilt offspring!”  No?  You don’t think that?  Well, I do.

For example, what if I combined Little Miss Shabby’s Liberated Wedding Ring Quilt and Amy Smart’s Double Crossed Quilt (using the paper piecing technique from Cara’s Urban Lattice Quilt Along)?

Well, I hope to find that out.  Here is what I have so far!  But, I’ll keep you posted.  (Fabric used from a variety of unknown fat quarters and many many Cape Ann Charm packs.)

So, I started off with 3 projects.  I added 5 new projects to that, and finished 3.  I now have 5 WIP’s.  Thanks for stopping by!

    Wow girl you have been busy! Your applique blocks are look so pretty and I’m loving your Denyse S. log cabin quilt . What are the measurements? Thanks for sharing!

    • Tanya says:

      Thanks! It is 74.5 x 98.5 right now, but it should shrink a little after quilting, washing, and drying. It is basically an oversized twin 🙂
