I pulled an old Work-in-Progress off my quilt rack. It was hanging right behind my ironing board and I could see it everyday. I’m glad it was there and I loved looking at it and kept thinking that I needed to keep working on the quilt top and finish it off. That time came this week. It is the Wavelength quilt pattern by Lee Heinrich of Freshly Pieced. I started it sometime last year and had gotten 3 rows around done. I’m doing this in teals and aquamarines with some greens mixed in. It’s going to be fabulous when it’s done.
I opened the box where I was keeping the fabric pull and the (already copied) paper-pieced patterns and found the most gorgeous collection of teal goodness! The box is in the order that I will piece the rows with the next row on top. There will be about 4 patterns per row ending with the white/aquamarine pieces. There are some great fabrics in here that I forgot I even had. It’s just like I bought new fabric this week but without the cash leaving my wallet.
Here’s where I was at this morning. The next row is where the mid-value teals will begin. Gryffin was helping me keep it secure on the floor. It’s what cats do best. I was able to get some of the teals attached and I’m really happy with where this is going. It is currently residing on the floor in my sewing room ready to be pieced together.
In other news – I got some hexie piecing completed on my way home from my brother’s wedding. I have a plan to use these in the Text Me Mini Quilt Swap but it’s not working out like I planned. I think I will stew on it for a little bit and revisit in a week or two. I may end up re-working it.
Speaking of the wedding – it was fantastic and I’m very happy to have such a sweet and wonderful lady added to our family.
