Working on WIPs




I'm working on my second WIP this past week. The first one is done but I can't show you because its a gift and I haven't given it to the person yet. The second one is the Amy Butler quilt I started last December. I decided to put it together even tho MARY never got me more fabric to make it bigger. (Don't worry sis, you can still get me more....maybe choose a different patern and I'll make something else;) I had a few scraps left over from the front, so I sewed them together for a strip on the back. It still needs to be sandwiched and quilted and bound. The triangles are kinda wanky, but at least the middle makes a pinwheel. I really should start using patterns. In the upper left corner of the photo you can see my Wonkytown WIP.....its been thrown aside to work on other projects.....I'll get back to it......soon I hope.

It's beautiful! And I don't think it looks wanky at all. It looks precise and square. I'm so proud of you! (can I say that?)

Thanks, auntie...of course u can say that...this quilting obsession is all your fault....I love it!!!!!! Yesterday I looked at my bins of scrapbook stuff and thought....I really need to move those bins to make more room for sewing stuff.

I love the quilt you are working on. The colors are so pretty and you do such a good job. Square and everything!! Are WIPS works in progress? I figuered out what BOM meant, but sometimes I'm not sure I'm right. (Actually, I'm not sure I'm right, most of the time, and other times when I'm sure, I'm wrong!)

Oh, and . . . don't get rid of your scrap booking stuff. As soon as you do, you'll find a use for it in quilting. I've see lots of 'cross over' ideas involving printing, screening, stamping, etc. Really cool stuff!

I think you have ADD/OCD tho, with the project switching and all....remember the button obsession?!?!?!?LMAO
