WIP Wednesday: August 3, 2011

This week, I focused on finishing the two quilts that I machine quilted last week. I was tempted by some of my other projects, but stayed strong and finished both of them! I blogged about the Aqua and Red table runner earlier this week and will blog about the Batik quilt after I gift it. With the end of the Finish It Up! Challenge around the corner, I am trying to focus on the quilts that I can finish soonest, rather than the quilts I’d like to work on.

Check out Freshly Pieced for more WIP Wednesday goodness.

Current Projects

Scrappy Green Quilt (aka Unblogable #5): For a year or so, this project has languished out of sight, awaiting borders. I am not fond of borders. Since the intended recipient doesn’t know that I’m making it for her, I haven’t been motivated to work on it until this week. I have admired Kati’s A Day at the Aquarium quilt for some time. Recently, I reread her post on that quilt’s backing and realized that her technique would be perfect for this quilt! I’m looking forward to turning this stack of fabric into a fun, improvisational back.
