WIP Wednesday: Getting Back into the Groove Edition

It's been forever since I've done a WIP Wednesday post and benefited from the focus they bring to my quilting so here's to getting back on track. I've got 3 projects that are getting my attention this week:
1. Strip Stacks in Blue & Brown has been reassembled (thanks to an old blog post pic) on my design wall. Our early sun seems to have disappeared so this photo is a bit on the dark side. The blocks are about 1/3 assembled I'd guess but since they are so large it's not going to take long to make this into a flimsy which is my #1 goal for the week.
2. I've started the 8th block of Quilty Stitches which is a Granny Square block. I'm planning red for the center and pink for the next round of squares next to the orange. I know I say this every time I post about these blocks... SO MUCH FUN! No need to attach a due date here as it will be done quickly.
3. After missing several months of Schnibbles I am looking forward to making X Rated. I own the book and have had this one mentally marked for some time. I've decided to use Field Notes by Blackbird Designs for this one on a cream background. My goal is to get the pieces cut this week.

Wish me luck that my quilty Mo-Jo hangs around for a while!


  1. Great job getting back into the swing of things. I've started so many projects/have so many things going that I need more focus. Today I made a priority list of things to get done. Some are by how much I need to get done, others by when the samples need to be made. Gotta get back in the groove.

  2. Love the stack strips.....and so glad your mojo came home. Btw, your Hot Dish was inspiration to me and sent my mojo home. Thanks!

  3. Looks like you've been busy, busy, busy!! Great job getting projects moving :-)

  4. Lookin' really good! Love that first quilt!!!! I have that same Schnibbles book and have wanted to make that same one!!!!

  5. I have that Schnibbles book and made that very quilt in it. Mine is a small size and is covering a table right now. It was a really fun pattern, but I definitely made use of my design wall as I moved around various colors until I liked the layout. Enjoy!

  6. Oh, I love the quilts but I really want to know about the cross stitch! Where are those blocks from? Love the colors and love the patterns. Hope you can get your Schnibbles done for the parade. K-

  7. Thanks for the link to you blog. I love the way your Quilty Stitches is coming out. The red really pops! Have a super day!

  8. That blue and brown quilt is really striking! I love the simple, graphic design.
