WIP Wednesday

I've been sewing as much as possible lately, in between all the usual household/family stuff. I feel like I've made a lot of progress, although there is not an actual finish to report.

Ongoing:Polka Dot Swap- Eighty dotted charm squares arrived in the mail on Saturday, and by Sunday night, I had the blocks done! I think it is a little busy, so I'm thinking about adding some solid sashing. One color, two alternating colors, multiple colors? Straight, on point, twisted? Decisions, decisions.

Wedding Ring Star- Oh, yes, progress is a good thing! This is my priority this week while Julia and Pete are at Jazz Camp (days only). 16 blocks done, many more to go. This is a Judy Niemeyer pattern that I have used before. It's so soft and pretty in Kate Spain's Fandango!

Girl Scout Quilt- Catherine completed her block on Tuesday. Love that bit of red in the center.

Kaleidoscope Quilt Along- I finished the top late Sunday night, in anticipation of spending the week with the wedding quilt. Now I'm thinking about borders, but will probably skip them.

New Projects:
I drew up this red & white kaleidoscope in the layout I wish I had used for the purple one. It will be the second in my series of red & white minis. It will be paper-pieced 2" squares. It's all cut out, ready and waiting.

For the Love of Solids Swap- I jumped in on this one this morning, after telling Julia last night that I had decided to pass. But all the cool kids are doing it! What was I thinking? Don't tell my mother!

On Hold (temporarily):
4 X 5 Modern Quilt Bee- Pulling fabric and thinking about block designs.
Teeny Weeny PP Bee- all done for this month.
Rockin Robin Quilt Along- I thought Julia would do this one, but she hasn't started yet.
Nonna's Garden- I'll get back to this one soon.
Brownie Heartstrings & Tony's QOV- Really, why can't we just get these out of the house?!
Red & White Fabric Swap- We may be sorting with Karen this weekend. Yay!

Super Bowl Twist

Love the wedding star, it is on my to do soon list. With your red and white Kaleidoscope one, if you turn your centers one triangle click over to the points line up with the same color of the middle, it gives you another whole look.
