WIP Wednesday, Bree Edition

After about 10 days away from my sewing machine, I'm finally back in the saddle. I had family in town, and spent the last week hanging out poolside... good times, but no sewing!
No, I am not any tanner than I was before. As a coworker pointed out, there's a solid chance I might start to sparkle in the sunshine if I'm not careful.

After getting past finishing Pretty Doggies a couple of weeks ago, I've settled into a madhouse of multiple projects.

In Progress:

The Ogee Quilt Along in Sunkissed
Status: cutting in progress. Sweet Pete, that's a lot of tracing, marking, and cutting!

Haunted House Quilt (Riley Blake's Boo to You)
Status: Six Blocks complete. I'm currently deciding on layout. I've steered further from my original plan than intended. Each block finishes at 12", and I feel that a 4x5 layout would be sufficient as this is going to be a living room throw quilt. With a 4x5 layout, only 6 wonky house blocks doesn't seem like enough, so I'm aiming to make 4 more, for an even 10, with 10 topsy turvy blocks remaining. I'm also considering a ... ready?... pieced sashing. Am I crazed?

Not Started:

Swoon Bricks Quilt (Think Road to Spring, but with bigger blocks): for Margaret's Hope Chest
Max and Whiskers D9P - the charms are cut for this, but that's it : for Margaret's Hope Chest
Jungle Themed Baby D9P - a baby gift for a friend who may or may not have had her baby in December... sorry, Jess!

I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced... go check out the projects!

I think a pieced sash would be thrilling!

The fabric for your Ogee quilt is very pretty. I like your wonky houses and probably a pieced sashing would really be nice. It is fun to go a little crazy like that.

I love your Halloween houses, such a cute idea!

If you have a tiny rotary, you can skip the tracing part and the cutting is much faster!

Great wonky haunted houses! I've been wanting to do a wonky house quilt but didn't know where to start. I think you may have inspired me!

Kerstin said...

Those haunted houses looks great! And did you feel some withdrawal from the sewing machine or was it good to take a break?

Debbie said...

I think having multiple projects going is inspiring!

Those houses are so cute! I wish I was doing the Ogee quilt-along, but I have too much other stuff on my plate right now. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )
