WIP Wednesday

 I didn't get a lot of quilting done this week, as I was cleaning for company.

Tangerine and Teal was finished last Wednesday. Read more about it here.

I finally cut out the pieces for the wedding ring arcs. The new Judy Neimeyer pattern has instructions for strip piecing the arcs. I tried  it, but didn't enjoy it. I'd rather piece with rectangles. It took about 2 hours to cut out 1280 rectangles- enough for 160 arcs! I think I'll try working on 20 at a time.

I'm not sure what will become of these fussy cut hexies. I think they look like gears.

In a never-ending attempt to get organized, my husband helped me hang some decorative shelves in our bedroom. I thought I wanted a ladder in this corner, but I can put a lot more quilts on these shelves. 

I had to snap a pic of the dining room table cleared off. It lasted only 3 days and things are piling up already.

Have a fun Wednesday!
(Linkup is on vacation today.)

Strip piecing is not my favorite thing to do either...made me laugh on those hexies looking like should go with that theme in a quilt!

Wow-o, that's amazing! I love the blue and orange.

I have a Judy Neimeyer pattern that was making me bonkers until I just said - forget it, I'm doing it my way! I think she has amazing pattern patterns and designs but is for a totally different personality type than me. :)
