As usual, a lot of projects going on, a little at a time.
On Ogee and Haunted House:
I did nothing. I hang my head in shame. I've got deadlines coming up on these two quilts for the Margaret's Hope Chest Wrapped in Hope quilts, so I'm focused on those! But I hope to piece some curves for Ogee tomorrow night.
On Zach's Jungle D9P:
I mentioned this was done last week, but Zach's mommy wanted some matching curtains... so I happily obliged and tossed in some matching pillowcases, too! I'm a bad, bad blogger and forgot photos. I was so focused on convincing a quilt, 2 curtain panels, and 2 pillowcases that they would fit into a flat rate envelope that I was scared to take them out for pictures when I finally jammed them in there! They're arriving this week, and she's promised me photos.
That's right! Mega progress! I finished the white pinwheels, assembled some pink swoon squares, figured out my horse shape, sewed and trimmed! The basic process is to layer your three pieces, all with right side facing up - first the pink, then a layer of muslin (to prevent the pink from showing through on the white), and then the white layers. Pin the heck out of it, draw your shape, then stitch around the outside of your shape and anywhere you want to remain white. Cut very very carefully around the stitch lines - only through your white and your muslin. In the end, your pink is exposed! Very tedious process, but very rewarding. More process is outlined by Dan at Piece and Press - he has some absolutely incredible quilts and his Hero quilt is the one I'm basing this horse quilt off.
(Adding, I'm not selling his design or this quilt - it's a donation quilt for a girl who loves horses. I try to be semi original, but Dan's quilt was so freaking amazing that I didn't really want to change any aspect of it!)
I have to add borders to this quilt and piece the back before it's ready to quilt, but I feel like I made real progress!
On Max and Whiskers D9P for MHC:
I picked the backing. Gah! I've done nothing on this, at least not effectively. I'm hoping to piece my 9 patches this week.
Cat in the Hat baby quilt and taggy toy. Done start to finish. Sometimes you just need a quick project!
As Always, Linking up to WIP Wednesday!
