WIP Wednesday!

It's been a busy week!  I spent last weekend at a wonderful retreat.  Worked on a couple of projects.

I finished a baby quilt top using the disappearing 9-patch with these fun crayon fabrics.  I plan to pick an overall design to quilt this on my machine.  More to follow.


I also continued to work on my Mason's Whirl Wall design.  I plan to have it available in a pattern on Craftsy soon.  Here is the WIP:



I was trying to make it with the background PLUS 4 but I think PLUS 6 will work better.  Going to add a couple of more fabrics and go at it again.  

Here is the pattern as I used it for the ALQS8 in which I used leftovers from a bali pops PLUS 2 backgrounds.  I like the scrappy look best myself.

In 2014 I hope to complete my Free Motion / Crazy Quilt 30 block project that I started in 2011. 
This is the 3rd block:

 This block contains Leah's 21 through 30 designs:

 I really had fun with this one. Loved getting back into working with the stitches.  I am working from Leah's book which you can find on her site in an eBook or Amazon as a regular book.  There have been a couple of blocks that were hard for me to figure out where to start going by the picture, for those I visited Leah's site where I could easily look up each design by there number and see Leah's wonderful videos

365 Free Motion Quilting Designs
 
See - Part #1 & Part #2 in prior blogs.  Each block showcases 10 designs.


Thanks for stopping by.  For lots of other creative happenings stop by those
site that I link up with....

It's a great skill to have. One that you can always use for yourself or relatives.

Love your fmq! At some point I hope to be able to practice enough to master that, but not yet!
