WIP Wednesday

I hope you all had a beautiful Easter weekend. I didn't do any sewing on Sunday(Easter) or Monday (drove Julia back to school). I did get back to the arrowheads yesterday and have more to stitch today.

Fabric Box Tutorial: Check it out!

Arrowhead table runner:  In my frenzy of stitching up batik arrowhead blocks,  I made three pink blocks that didn't have a purpose. So I stitched them together into this quick tablerunner.

Some simple in-the-ditch straight line quilting was all it needed.

In progress:
The main arrowhead project is growing! This layout works, but I decided to add another row in each direction so I won't need to add a border. Not every block is a winner, so I'm making extras to swap out the ones I don't like. I'm hoping to get the top together today and get it quilted tomorrow.

Here's the pile of batik squares waiting for me at the machine. I just noticed that the bobbin door is open on my machine. I almost never close it. Does anyone else do that?

Next on the list:
Quilting Mod Bento
Quilting Swap Soup

New: I'm really tempted to jump in on this quilt along.

I'm doing the Bloom Bloom POW QAL, it's so exciting I finally got everything ready for it. I love the colors, I'm using my own fabric but similar in colors, hope to see your progress. All your WIPs were beautiful.
