I haven't done a WiP Wednesday in quite awhile, so I thought today was a good day to update on my current works in progress.
We are hitting the middle of summer and I'm quite impressed with my productivity! It does help that we don't have a hard set schedule to keep this summer. Plus with it being so hot during the day, my kids and I seek shelter inside. So that just means more sewing and quilting time for mama!
My UP Pixel Quilt has been pressed, backing prepared, and now basted! I think I am just going to do some straight line quilting, then add some hand quilting details.
After the kids go to bed, I've been hand quilting my quilt from the 100 blocks 100 days event last year. I am halfway through quilting. So maybe in another month it will actually be finished!
Finishing the binding on my Modern Maples quilt. For the binding I did some big stitch binding (Kitchen Table Quilting has a great tutorial) and I just love this look. Over the last year I have been making my binding chunky (start with 3.5 inch strips) and finishing it with a big stitch and it is really my favorite way to finish a quilt. I'm hoping to have a tutorial for my chunky binding in the next few weeks.
Time to get back to the sewing room and keep my productivity going!

I was skimming my list of blogs for today and saw your quilt pic and thought to myself that looks like the UP. Had to open it to see and it was. Looks great!ReplyDelete
Such gorgeous projects! The chunky binding caught my attention! Then seeing you used a big stitch...love it even more!ReplyDelete
