WIP Wednesday

Over the weekend, I made progress on my wonky stars quilt top from last week's WIP Wednesday.


I also made a really excellent and high quality design wall, by taping a couple of spare strips of batting to the wall with painter's tape.  It did the job though, and I finished the quilt top - it has ended up at about 40" wide and 49" high.


I am really really happy with this quilt so far, and I have the backing and binding fabrics chosen already. My plan for this week is to baste this quilt, so I can at least get started with the quilting on the weekend.  Wish me luck, because I have work functions on both Thursday and Friday nights!

What are you working on this week?

Ooooooh I adore the colors! It's so gorgeous! :O

My design wall is thumbtacked to my wall because the painter's tape kept coming un-stuck, so I know how that goes. ;)

I love those stars in the solids - and I really need to make some sort of a design wall too as I usually just use the loungeroom floor.

Those stars really glow on the variety of greens! Good luck with the quilting, but don't stress about getting it finished- enjoy the journey!

Marit said...

Looks great! It's so nicely sewn and pressed it almost looks like paper.

Christine said...

It looks stunning. I am happy to have just found your blog.

I love your colours and the way those little stars pop out. I also like the way your tape co-ordinates with the quilt:-)

It's adorable. I have been thinking about trying out wonky stars on a Constellations background, but I really like the solids.
