WIP Wednesday

Stitcheries Quilt

Can’t believe we are back to Wednesday already!–Man that week flew by.  It’s unfortunate that time picks up pace as the summer nears an end. =)  I checked my Stitcheries quilt top off my WIP list.

This is my favorite block in the whole quilt:


For some reason, I opted to do all of my little stitcheries on muslin.  This is not the same decision I would make if I were making it again!

In keeping with that, and against my better judgement, the sashing is also a muslin–albeit cuter than your average muslin.  I picked it up at one of my LQS’s several years ago and it has a flower print sort of “stamped’ into it if that makes sense.

I may never be able to wash this quilt–none of the fabrics are prewashed and I’m not sure how it will hold up…and the shrinkage wouldn’t be a good thing.  But, aesthetically, I think I made the right decision.  The little flowers in there are pretty cute!

Happy to check this one off my list!  However, now the problem is the overflowing stack of quilt tops–machine quilter I am not! =)

In the upcoming week these are my goals:

  1. Add border to the Metro Rings Quilt–I hope to share this one with you tomorrow or Friday.
  2. Finish next Quilty Stitches block (the last one!)
  3. Bind my Yoder quilt.

I also have another project I wouldn’t mind working on but, with Back to School next week my schedule may get a bit full!

  • Your quilt is lovely, Corey.

  • Hi Corey,
    I just love this quilt! The stamped muslin adds just the right look to the little stitcheries. Beautiful!

  • Le quilt est magnifique bravo bonne journée Marie-Claire

  • Such a cute little quilt. Tonight my college daughter and I are presenting the program at our local quilt club – topic UFO’s! I am going to do your WIP- Wednesday as an incentive to complete. Thanks so much.

  • Such a lovely quilt.

  • Looks good! I wonder if you would have to do the washing in the bathtub with cool water route for cleaning.

  • A blast from the past! I really had to think about which block I did. (Bottom center.). I’m glad I’m not the only one with h2b2 wips. Great job!
