WIP Wednesday

This week I'm chiefly working on a class sample and some quilting for Cloud9 Fabrics! I can't share those quite yet, but I can share my personal projects:

 I cut into my recent purchase of Loominous woven fabric from Sew Me A Song. This quilt's purpose is simply the pure joy of making an autumnal quilt; the fabrics are stunning and I'm enjoying figuring out where to go next. I pulled out my shot cotton stash (it's small but mighty) to play with these fabrics. The shot cottons are a bit heavier but they change colors, and Loominous is metallic, so they work well together. It's all so soft. I have someone in mind to gift it to when it's done.

I sewed all my Meadow quilt blocks - now I just have to trim them and sew them together. I have a lot coming up so I might put these on the backburner until our CJMQG November retreat. Or, I might get inspired to keep going. The bulk of the work is done and it's a purely selfish project, so there's no rush. I don't intend to keep this one laying around for a year though! I am itching to free motion quilt it!

Finally, my biggest WIP - the new sewing room. I took this picture the night we moved in (most of my stuff was still in the hallway behind me!). It's coming along nicely and I can't wait to show you how I've decorated (mini quilts and my selvage quilt, for one!). Most of all, I'm itching to sew. We'll see if that happens today. Lots going on around here. Hopefully you are getting some sewing done in my place!

P.S. Stay tuned for an announcement of my new classes tomorrow!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday.


  1. I am glad the move went / is going well. I can't wait to see how you decorate and fit into your new space! It sounds like you have a lot of wonderful things underway, and I can't imagine how you could put aside the meadow quilt. :)

  2. I love what you are doing with those loominous fabrics!

  3. Is it me? Cause I would love to be gifted with that beauty! lol I love the new Loominous fabrics. They do a fabulous job of showing off your signature purple. I want to make an autumn year. lol. AND YOUR MEADOW - stunning! I can't wait to see the finished products!

  4. Ooh, I'm happy to see loominous in action! Your meadow quilt is looking great also, I like the darker colour scheme for it.

  5. Both of those projects look great - I love the "dots" in the second one! And the plaid fabrics really add to the first. Cool.

  6. Super cute blocks.
    Your sewing room is going to be perfect!!

  7. Congrats on your new sewing room; you'll love having that dedicated space!

  8. You're working magic with that Loominous, they are great for a fall project for sure! I can't wait for a tour of your new sewing space <3
