WIP Wednesday

 Hello, everyone! I'm still here, just not sewing very much these days. My part-time job is going well. I don't know how people find time to quilt after working full-time. This job thing is really cramping my quilty style!

I needed to buckle down last weekend and make progress on this Stacked Squares graduation quilt for a friend. I picked up a fresh box of safety pins yesterday at my LQS that will be closing soon. (I could cry!) All my old pins are tired up in another basted quilt. It was quicker to buy new pins than to finish that other quilt. Anyway, the batting is in the dryer to relax the folds, then I'll be ready to baste this one.


By the way, by cousin received his blue Stacked Squares. His latest prognosis is quite good and he's hoping to attend a family reunion in August. Thank God!
 
There's another deadline looming on a project I haven't even started to cut out yet. It's something I've never made before (a liturgical stole), so I'm procrastinating. I'm running out of time, though.
 

I've been slowly making progress on the scrappy spool blocks. I've been piecing them as leaders and enders
 

I've completed 27 of the 48 blocks and my mitered corners are improving.


Wednesday will always be a day off for me, so we'll meet here for weekly updates!

I absolutely love the colours you've chosen for your mitered corner blocks - and can't wait to see the completed quilt top! Lovely work.

I've made several stoles and have a pattern our priests like. It is super easy and I can email it to when I get home if you are interested. I piece the front, quilt it to interfacing, sew a back to it, turn inside out and topstitch. Check my blog.
