WIP Wednesday: August 17, 2011

Lately, real life has been encroaching more and more on my sewing time. I have a couple big time sinks coming in the next month or so, which will mean a lot less time for sewing (and for blogging). Knowing this made this week’s sewing day at my mom’s that much sweeter.

Check out Freshly Pieced for more WIP Wednesday goodness.

Current Projects
Unblogable #1: Still hand quilting. It’s slow going, but I am enjoying it.

Scrappy Green Quilt (aka Unblogable #5): I finished the top and the back at my mom’s. For the back, I used the slash and sew technique that I first encountered here. I really enjoyed putting the back together.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Loving your quilt, it has a nice visual appeal. How awesome you're doing the sewing by hand. Kudos.

  2. I stopped by because I am doing something similar and greens are a challenge for me. Your work drew me in.

    Hand sewing great!

    And I know what you mean about real life obligations encroaching on one's time. :) This is true for me too. But I do think a hand sewing project to take on the road (read car pool/ school pick line) would be helpful. :)

  3. Sewing with you is always sweet! We'll get back to it once your 'time sinks' calm down! Love your slash & sew backing - a great idea with great results!

  4. I love the back - lovely fresh colours.

  5. I like the greens. It's only been in the past week that I even thought about also piecing backs...other than using the same material.

  6. I like the scrappy green - is that the back then? Can't wait to see the front! : ) Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday.
