WIP Wednesday (1st May 2013)

WIP Wednesday (1st May 2013)


Two works in progress this week. Firstly my neighbourhood quilt is still coming together. I had a lazy moment last week where I thought I might be able to get away with just three rows and pad the rest out with border, but then I took the measurements and realised I’d need as much border as I currently have of houses! So I’m ploughing on and will be making five rows in total, with a small border. This is what I have so far, a lot of it is just laid in place on the floor and not actually sewn yet!

I’ve also started work on my cushion for the Pillow Talk 10 Swap on Flickr. I was actually a bit thrown when I saw my swap partners inspiration mosaic, because there is very little overlap between our personal likes and I have struggled a little to come up with ideas. However being pushed a little outside my own comfort zone is exactly why I do these swaps…

This is what I was experimenting with last night though, it matches one or two of the things on her wish list. I have no idea what it will look like when I’ve finished though, I’m hoping it will just evolve!


For the first time since this blog was rebooted, I’m linking up today with Freshly Pieced’s WIP Wednesday. It’s nice to be back…

Way cool PTS10 progress! If she likes Echino, I am sure she will love it. I love Echino, but I didn’t put any in my mosaic, and I’d still be over the moon with this. I have that fabric, so I may just copy you…hehehe. Love your neighborhood quilt too.
