W.I.P. Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Alright, so I'm going to do a proper W.I.P. Wednesday post for the first time, as usual hosted by Lee of the Freshly Pieced blog.

Ongoing projects:

- my Swoon quilt, 5 out of 9 blocks finished and block #6 well underway! And on a related note, I think I "fixed" my sewing machine. I honestly don't know what was going on, I just kept tweaking the tension until I finally got it right. It seems very sensitive though, a tiny adjustment can be too much. So now that I've got it, I am not going to touch the tension for now!!


- my HST project from the leftover flying geese bits. I posted yesterday of my experiments thus far, and today I received an email from Rebecca Lynn with this HST layout from flickr, and here is my version of it. I really like this one.


Projects up and coming:

- I am going to be vague because I want it to be a surprise, but I am so excited about this little project that I have in the works (well, in my mind mostly at this point. . . and a little fabric in the mail. . . )

What a neat HST layout!

I know what you mean about not wanting to touch the tension once you've fixed it! My machine got mad at me a while ago for trying to switch between Aurifil and some other thread in the bobbin, so once I finally got everything working again, I stopped changing thread brands. :}

Ok, you know I love the Swoon blocks, but I'm also totally crushing on your HST layout you've got there! Can't wait to see what you're going to do with the Little Apples!

I like your swoon quilt blocks. I really want to make one of these but haven't gotten around to it yet. I was holding out for the release of Ruby but have since made other plans for that particular fabric so now I'm shopping around for ideas. Your version is just perfect :) Is that Hometown?

Cille said...

The HST is awesome. And I'm also reminded of why I bought the Swwon pattern a while ago and why I must get started on it soon :) It looks really great

Andy said...

I really like that hst layout too. That Hometown line of fabric is one of my favorites!

Tanya said...

I love that half square triangle layout. I've never seen it before. I bet it would look fun in reverse, as well. Nice job!

Carla said...

Love all your Swoon blocks! I definitely need to get on the band wagon and get me that pattern. I like surprises so I'm looking forward to see what you have in the works.

I love all your fabric choices. Such great colours and patterns. Your Swwon bloocks and HSTs are beautiful! Looking forward to seeing what you do with that Aneela Hoey fabric!
