WIP Wednesday


There's a lot going on in the Quilty Habit studio these next couple of weeks. I'm making a wonky cross quilt with a bunch of different fabrics from Cloud 9 Fabrics; I'm hoping to teach a class in the fall/winter. It's basic slice and insert piecing with my favorite "planned" improvisation. This project is pure fun and I get excited just thinking about it. That's why I snapped this picture of it all on my floor/design wall. :D Sooo pretty - apparently I've been loving cascading colors lately. Plus I have purple toes. That's a win in my book.

This doesn't look like much yet (because it's a sneak peek), but I was auditioning fabrics to finish my Cloud 9 Cirrus Solids Mini Quilt Challenge quilt for the August CJMQG meeting. It's improvisational cathedral windows, and I'd love to teach this technique, too. I totally made this up and it's been thrilling to experiment with.

Finally, I basted the giant plus quilt. I can't WAIT to finish this up and hand it off to its very eager future owners! I'll be doing some wavy walking foot quilting like Breeze. It will be a workout though - this thing is a bit larger than queen sized. I can't even hold it up by myself! In August, I will be available for more commission giant plus quilts if anyone is interested. Feel free to leave a comment or email me!

  1. Great job on the quilt. I love the plus sign pattern. I have made a few, and they are so fun to make.

  2. Yay for color order, especially with coordinating toenails properly aligned, too! :)

  3. A plus sign quilt is on my "want to do" list. To be fair it is a VERY long list ;0) Your quilt is lovely!

  4. I love the subtle gradient in this quilt and your color choices..... great job!

  5. Looking good even though it's not your usual color combo :)

  6. I would love to see this quilted. I'm about to try some wavy line walking foot quilting on a small # quilt. I looked at Breeze--was that quilted width to width? Do you measure anything or just do curvy lines with walking foot? Do you try to get them a certain distance apart? A big adventure for me!

  7. Jess, you are so talented and make such beautiful quilts!


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
