WIP Wednesday

Well, not much to see here today, kids. Seems I've been doing little sewing this week. 

I did get a few more strips done on Wyatt's quilt, but I'm going to have to go back and enlarge the red, orange and possibly yellow strips.

When I made those first strips so narrow I was basing it off his picture that included white space between each color, but turns out he just wants all the colors together with no negative space. 

Really, that's about the extent of my productivity this week. I attempted quilting the heart mini a few different ways, but wasn't pleased with any of them, so I spent a little time with the ripper. I've got the binding made and am going to try hand quilting instead. 

After we pick up Wyatt from preschool this morning we'll be making our way to Iowa for a quick visit to my parents, so I think I'll be delivering the heart mini as a gift to my mom. She's much more into that kind of thing than I am!

Hope everyone has a delightful rest of the week! See you Monday!

  7. looks fabulous!! i like the idea of the red being a little thicker to match the width of the other colors, but maybe leaving the orange thinner for contrast? although, orange is THE color right now, so... ;)
