It’s been an insane last couple of weeks, but I think I am past all my crazy deadlines and just have a few low-key ones ahead! Yay!! So it seemed like a great time for a WIP post.
But first a query: Is anyone else going to Sewing Summit? I will be there! Yay! I need to figure out the classes, though! Also, I have a friend with an extra ticket, so if anyone’s looking, let me know!
On to the sewing! There’s been a lot of secret sewing going on over here, but now that everything is finished and gifted, I can actually share it, yay! There will be more in-depth design posts about these finishes later this week, but here is the quick and dirty are for now.
First up is the Briar Rose churn dash quilt that the South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild made for Julia, who has been our secretary for the last two years. She’s leaving to go to LA to learn textile design and I am going to miss her terribly.
Our guild also had a negative space challenge swap, and I pulled Karen’s name (CapitolaQuilter). She’s a good friend, but we have pretty different styles, so this was definitely outside of my comfort zone! I’m really happy with how it came out, but it required a lot of hand-holding from my friends to get me here. I know she’s been really fascinated by the houndstooth pattern, so I designed this with that in mind. And of course I had to batik bomb it for her!
Because I’ve had all these secret projects, sew days have been challenging lately, so I’ve been carting my bento box quilt around. I only have one border left to go, but it’s getting big enough that it’s hard to take pictures. Above is the picture when I was 1/2 done with the latest border.
And then of course I’m hard at work with the Palette Builder. I’m working on making it save the Kona information but I’m trying to figure out the right way to go about it. If you have opinions and are interested in helping, please drop me a line! I’d love to chat about it so I can make sure it’s done right!
Linking up to WIP Wednesday with Freshly Pieced!
