WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


I am linking up to WIP Wednesday over at Lee's at freshly pieced. This is the first time I am linking up...looks like good fun.






Well, 2013 is here and I am still in the planning stages for the New Year. Have too many ideas and too little time. Will have to make a list.

At the moment I am working on 2 definite projects and another few in my head :)

The first one I started way back...a foundation pieced play with colours. Finally had some time to get cracking on this. Here's a bit of a taste

 
 

Eventually managed to work out the sequence of the foundation. Went through a whole lot of confusion there for a while and kept on producing mirror images...together with sorting out the colours that became a bit of a nightmare. Then I realized that I had forgotten to reverse the image when I printed the block out bigger, so kept looking at the block the right way, but producing a mirror image...duh!!

Not sure what this will become exactly...but am making it with the intention on FMQ feather plumes in the yellow star. Initially I thought that I would then use a filler design in the coloured section, but now I am unsure as there are a lot of seams to travel over. Had not considered this...every project always becomes a bit of an adventure. In fact, I should call this 'The Adventure' as I am also not sure I like the solids in there. However, I promised myself to only use what I have in my overflowing stash container, so I probably will just run with it (ha, ha...note the 'probably' in the sentence).

As you can see this one is still truly in the exploration stage. Should be interesting to see what happens next.

Looking forward to having a bit of a look to see what other quilters have been up to.

    1. Thanks Pat. The selection of colours has not been quite as easy as I originally thought.

    1. I hope so...not quite convinced as yet as it has not been as straightforward as I initially thought.

  7. Thanks Chris. Good luck with your UFOs...probably a good idea to set a goal for 1 month at a time. Might try this myself as I am already getting overwhelmed.

  9. Might just make a small wall hanging...this is quite labour intensive.
