WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Well, I am finally getting back to the sewing machine.  Don't know why I have been 'away', but it seems that life keeps intruding on what I really want to do.

I am still working my way through the Tula Pink QAL and finished up blocks 21-30 this week.  Only 70 more blocks to go!

This set I did do in fabrics I got in a fat quarter bundle on sale at The Sewing Palace.  I had gotten the bundle to do a yo-yo puppy for Lady K (WIP, yo-yo's are done) and when I was picking fabrics off the shelf I just grabbed these.  I do like the colors together.

But my Tula Pink stack is starting to look impressive.  Here are all 30 of them together.  I can't wait until I have all 100 done.

I haven't been brave enough yet to lay out all 30 of them to see what they look like so far.  I will have to get Texter to help me one day just to see what they look like so far.

Now I have to get back to my Mariner's Compass I am working on.

This is such a difference from the free style of the Tula Pink.  It is paper piecing and pages of directions.  Both have a certain appeal to me.  The Tula Pink is really fun because I am working with color selection and seeing how blocks go together in a less rigid format.  But then the Virgo part of me is loving the precision and baggies of pieces from the Judy Niemeyer.  Both parts of me are loving these quilts.

But my other WIP, Lady K, is waking up so off to give her breakfast and then back to her yo-yo puppy.
