WIP Wednesday

Apparently, ending a huge project inspired me work on/start a bunch of little ones.

I shared the start of my rainbow mini quilt for Mid-Atlantic Mod last week. I'm so excited to bind this baby and give it away! I don't do a lot of straight matchstick quilting (very close lines) but the design called for it. Plus, I had visions of rainbows of Aurifil thread shining on the white fabric. I have some cool in process pictures that I'll share when it's done (they show too much of the design). By the way... if you guessed that I'm using orange peels, you're right!

In other news, I've started ANOTHER orange peel quilt. Shocking, right? I posted four layouts on Instagram, and almost everyone agreed on this design. The quilting is so much fun, and I can't wait to share more soon. This is for the Quilt Alliance's annual fundraiser/contest with the theme "Playing Favorites" this year. Your 16x16" quilt is donated to the Quilt Alliance, exhibited, raffled off, and documented in the Quilt Index. Click here to read more.

This fabric pull is for a new class sample for one of my next classes in development. The inaugural class is going to be held at a guild this summer (details tentative, but hopefully it will be finalized soon!). Those Lizzy House butterflies have SO many amazing colors!

Finally, I finished my block for the Paintbrush Studio New Block Blog Hop. Pop back on Monday to see this one and all the others! This is just the first stage of making the block. :)

See you on Friday for some thoughts on quilt guild leadership and a special gift I recently received.


  1. This post is just full of eye candy and teasers! Looking forward to the reveal on all of them!

  2. I'm loving the rainbow mini with the match stick quilting. I look forward to seeing your new blogger hop block.

  3. Whoohoo! Orange peels it is! ;) I was amazed at how uniform the response for the layout on IG was the other day. I am looking forward to seeing fun finishes soon.

  4. Those minis are going to be gorgeous. I love the quilting on both of them. The different colored thread matchstick is glorious! There is definitely going to be some battling going on for #midatlanticmod minis this year ;) Less than a month, can't wait!

  5. I'm loving the orange peel colors! All your minis are amazing! I'm excited to see what you have planned for the Paintbrush Studio block!

  6. I really like your wavy lines of quilting around your peels.


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!
