WIP Wednesday -- April Edition

It has been a long, strange trip since the last time I posted my WIPs at Freshly Pieced. As such, I have been all-over-the-place with my projects. The semester is quickly coming to a close, so I'm hoping that I'll get some projects finished. Without further adieu, here is the short list of all the projects I have going on:

Something Not A Quilt aka The Dress MGO started

After re-drafting three pieces completely today, here is the latest mock-up of the dress (for the initial version that MGO did all by himself, click here)

Redrafted Dress

It looks good-enough for me to cut out the 'real' dress tomorrow. Now I just have to make up my mind regarding the fabric :)

Quilts that Need the Binding Finished

Sadly, I have /two/ at this stage.

My 'Stripes' Quilt which I really need to get done, since it is a house-warming present that is um *cough, cough* two months overdue.


And my hand-pieced 'Broken Dishes' Quilt which my husband loves.

Broken Dishes

I can't wait to show everyone this finished project. I splurged on the no. 5 perle cotton I used and it just made all the colours pop more.

The Quilt I'm Quilting

I know the last time I posted, I said that this was the fourth project on my to-do list, but I still haven't decided how to quilt what was number 3, so I skipped to this one.

Pink Texas Pinwheels

Hooking Project

Yes, I'm still working on this:

Hexagon Granny Square

Because it is still not long enough for a twin-size bed.

Random Projects:

Or simply projects to distract me when I misplace the tools I need to complete other projects.

Like today, when I misplaced scotch tape /and/ tissue paper since you can't really draft patterns without either.

Medallion Quilt

Or like Sunday, when MGO started working on the dress and my sewing table was cluttered.

Or like any other time, when I want to work and not think.

Texas Pinwheels

Hopefully, I'll have some finished projects to blog about in the near future; especially since the dress has to be done by Saturday :)

  7. I thought it was so cute that your husband helped you drape :) Love the origami pinwheels - still have this on my wish list! Maybe this summer will provide some more time for me to actually hop to it :)

  8. I think that dress looks great! I can't wait to see the real one!
