WIP Wednesday and Fresh Sewing Day

I am having a slightly quiet sewing week - a lingering cold is leaving me without a lot of energy by the end of the working day.  However, I have finished up a couple of blocks recently.

This first one is the May block for Simply Solids.  Kathy is making a scrap vomit quilt in all solids - I think it will be wonderful!

The second block is a block of the month for Capital Quilters - it's called Mod Plaid, and while it doesn't look that exciting on its own, a whole lot together look really effective!

Finally, with the start of May, it's time for a wrap up of April's projects.  The links below will take you to the relevant blog post.


Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced and Fresh Sewing Day at Lily's Quilts:

Wow! Those solids pack a punch, don't they!(Where are my sunglasses? LOL!) The red and purple pincushion is great- not sure how I missed that!?

The solids look fantastic, as does your + quilt. You have been busy :)

When I saw the thumb nail for the solid quilt block at Freshly Pieced I thought that it was an illustration of a quilt you were planning to make. I love that the fabrics are really that bright. I'm sure it will make a really fun quilt.

I adore your Modern She Made Cushion. And you seem to like swaps? I currently have started one on my blog, so maybe you wanna come by and check it out :)

I love the collage of all your projects :) Can I ask how you make those? Is it a blogger thing?
I love your solid block of squares too. :) Such and impression it makes.

LOVE your colors, fun collage!

"scrap vomit" never heard that before

Marit said...

You've been majorly productive. As always - I enjoy reading your blog (but have been a poor commenter). PS: I may have very unconsiously copied your little pincushion idea for my Modern She Made extra...

The solid scrap vomit is going to be super cool. I can't wait to see it done!

Really effective scrap vomit - it's going to be striking. When I saw the link for Capital Quilters I thought it was for ME because I'm CapitolaQuilter LOL - I like the block you made even if it's not headed my way.

Erica said...

I don't think I have seen an all-solids scrap vomit, it looks great. And that black chicopee print is one of my favorites, I have been hoarding mine a little bit :)

Leigh Anne said...

That riot of color is amazing! I totally want to make a giant toss cushion version of your pincushion :)
