Its WIP Wednsday at Freshly Pieced. Here's my progress this week:
1. I have been working really hard on the red and white double 9 patch quilt this week! My goal has been to complete three blocks each week day and six blocks on each weekend day. Each of these blocks contains 49 pieces. Of course, strip piecing helps a lot, but still each block takes a little time to complete. I try to work for just a few minutes in the mornings before work, even if its only 5 minutes. Then after work I start to work on quilting while supper is cooking
I'm up to 57 blocks and I need 72. So just a few more days and the blocks will be finished. Then it will be time to sew all of the blocks together and match up all those seams!
Working on more blocks:
2. The Jacob's Ladder Quilt Along.
Here are the first two blocks. I really love how they turned out and am looking forward to making more. I made a decision not to buy any fabric and I've come up with some nice fabric combinations using what I have in all those plastic containers in the sewing room. I Can't wait to show you the blocks as I make them.
Here are close ups of the lighter fabrics in the blocks:
3. Crumb blocks
Here are a couple more blocks made from the crumbs I am accumulating while working on the red and white quilt.
4. Hand quilting the Grandma Quilt..... well it makes a great place to put projects.
