What is a WIP? Well – it stands for ‘Work In Progress’ and I would say it’s a bit of an inside joke amongst quilter’s how many WIPs we all have sitting in our drawers and on our shelves just waiting for us to finish. Well, yesterday I decided to put my WIPs up on my design wall, snap a picture, and keep a list of how many WIPs I can finish this year.
Let’s take a look…
Mix It Up Blocks
This is a mixture of a couple of different Quilt Along’s/BOM’s that I participated in in 2012. It’s going to be amazing…I just have to finish it!!!
2012 Craftsy BOM
This is my typewriter squarey quilt. I started it last year and I am using my original spoonflower fabrics that I created using photo images I took of a vintage typewriter. I’m combining the monochromatic typewriter prints with pink and orange hand-dyes…this is definitely going to make a statement! I still need to make some more squarey blocks but I also need to figure out some sort of ‘direction’. As I look at this I’m feeling adding in a few bits of solid black fabric could add some interesting drama…I’ll definitely have to do some playing yet…
These are the 12 blocks I have from the Fabric Fascination BOM in 2012. It looks to me like I did LOTS of BOMs in 2012 but didn’t finish many of them! Oops! I am actually considering making these blocks into a couple of patchwork pillows…I’m not 100% decided on that though yet…but I think that would be fun and it would show something different you can do when you join in a Quilt Along.
Hand Dyed Waves
I made this at a Quilt by Barb Quilt Retreat for the mini project. I really love where it is at so far…but it needs something else. It’s still marinating with me what it needs but hopefully this year inspiration will hit and I can finish this baby out!
