Quilting Work-in-Progress WIP Projects ~ 4 February 2013

After moving to the east side of Sparks (from west side of Reno) to a smaller but sunnier condo, I’ve finally unpacked most of my quilting supplies and fabrics. Set up a small part of the second bedroom with my table and an old bookcase in the closet to house fabric. On one wall I put up the design wall…thank goodness for 3M Adhesive strip hooks!

My small work space...that Princess Feather block was pieced by my GGGrandma in Nebraska.

I left a big box of civil war reproduction fabrics in the box and tucked it in the back of my closet…another box is loaded with prints of various colors.

My $1 chair I bought over the weekend from a garage sale.

Now onto the Work-in-Progess quilts ~ (minus a quilt top I made with Kate Spain fabric that I forgot to pull out).

Left: Triangle rows out of Frolic.  Need to add a few onto each row and make it longer.  Right: English paper pieced Grandma's Flower Garden out of batiks.

Time to Frolic with my Fabric!

:)

More or less am settled into the new house…my hands/wrists are starting to calm down…got my Singer 301 back from Windy Moon Quilts all serviced and ready to go!

I am ITCHING to play with my fabric!

Over on Aneela Hoey’s blog Comfort Stitching I spied TRIANGLES! I have a complete FQ bundle of her Sherbet Pips and thought I could make a triangle quilt out of that line…but decided it’s too ‘pastel-y’ (not as bright as her Little Apples line…which is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!). So I put those down…will have to ponder a bit more on what type of quilt to make with the Sherbet Pips.

I then looked in my stash and pulled out the FQ bundle I had of Sandy Gervais ~ Frolic. This will make an awesome Autumn/Fall triangle quilt. I can get three (3) 5.25″ strips from a FQ…and five 5.25″ triangles from each strip. I’m halfway through cutting.
