Wiggle Wiggle? What the heck is she saying?!
I haven't made a whole lot of progress due to a certain toddling terror this week. He dislocated his elbow on Sunday, resulting in a trip to the ER, and re-dislocated it this morning at daycare! Poor Kid! He keeps me on my toes. After his second relocation, we tested out his arm ... "wiggle, wiggle, Kiddo!" (Insert funky chicken flailing arms here). Try it. It's quite liberating.
So.. not tons of progress, but a little bit!
I am ALL CUT! YAY!!! Rejoice with me, that's more tracing and cutting than I've ever done in my life, but oh-so-worth it. Now, it's up on the design wall. I'm still fiddling with the layout a bit - there are a few places that disappear into each other. And that white block is supposed to stick out like a sore thumb - it'll be an appliqued birdcage eventually :)
I also got my binding strips cut. Bonus points if you can guess what that blackish blob in the far distance is... and not the blob that is the rotary cutter.
Now, I'm onto practicing curves! Even if you're not doing the ogee quilt along, you have GOT to check out Lesly's curve sewing post. She's a genius. Plain and simple.
Since I have an issue with throwing out scraps, I decided to make my practice pieces into something useful. I'm not sure what it'll be yet. Maybe a whole quilt top. Maybe.. I don't know. Any ideas on how to make this grow?
Haunted House Quilt:
No progress. I pulled it down from the design wall to make way for Ogee. It's calling me, though.
Swoon Road to Spring for Margaret's Hope Chest... this one has changed. Here is the fabric selection:
And here is the new inspiration. I don't know if I can pull it off, but I'm gonna give it the ol' college try! The girl I selected for the Wrapped in Hope program loves horses, so I'll de-horn the unicorn. The current plan is for charm squares for the underside, white-on-white pinwheels for the top, and a border using both colors to extend it larger. I've got my measurements done, I need to start cutting!
MHC Max and Whiskers D9P: Cut.
Zach's Jungle Quilt: the fat quarters are pulled off the shelf finally, does that count as progress?
Linking up to WIP Wednesday again!
