WIP Wednesday ~ making progress

I'm on a mission to make a dent in my WIP list before the end of the year. I've dug out a few long term WIPs and I've put them to the top of pile. As a reward to myself, I've also made a start on something new...

An Anna Maria Horner feather quilt has been on my bucket list for the last few years. Maybe next year! In the meantime I thought a reduced feather would look good on the side of a Sew Together Bag. I didn't put a lot of thought into the whole process, I used the STB that Andrea had made me as a rough guide for size, I could see that the 50% feather should fit, especially if I set it on an angle. I made up the sizes for the setting pieces as I went, not an ideal way to piece but fun and fast! Then I thought I had better get back to that WIP list.

As I mentioned in my last post, I finished up the remaining six envelopes in the SWAK swap. The very last envelope is my favourite from my year in envelopes. I used the Math Class Doodles Spoonflower print that Katy sent me in a swap, I adore that print!


This afternoon I finished quilting my daughter's Out to Sea Penny Patch quilt. I used Rachel at Stitched in Color's Dogwood quilting tutorial. I love the softness that all those gentle curves add to the quilt. I'll be looking for excuses to use this quilting pattern again!
And... I've pieced together one of the two do.Good.Stitches quilts that I need to finish before the end of the year. Take that WIP list!

Do you have a few WIPs that you plan to finish before the end of the year?

  8. I just finished my Feather Bed quilt last month. I love your fabric choices ... and hope you feel inspired to pick it up and get it done–I can say, from experience, that getting that one done feels so good.
