Work in progress Wednesday - or why I would like a design wall.

 I think I need a design wall. That way I can keep track of my UFOs. I try to only have one quilt on the go at anyone time. This does not always work. For starters there are two quilts that need to be quilted.
After much uhming and ahing I have decided to make a log cabin quilt out of some lovely Rowan fabrics. Again if I had a design wall and not a floor the colours might have looked better on this photo.

 I got distracted by trying to sew curvy patchwork. This is mainly to prove to a friend that patchwork isn't just "cutting squares and sewing them back together".
 I am trying out a red white blue thing here. Might need an orange back for this one to make it really Dutch.
 I am helping my Eldest (10 years old) to sew her first quilt. It is very colourful. I am quite impressed with well she is doing.
Talking of the 10 year old. She has grown again and needs a new summer dress. Luckily I had this lovely Benatrx print stashed and will be cutting into that soon. I have traced the pattern and altered the back. She felt it was a bit bare for everyday but might like it with the heart shaped back for her leavers party next year.

So all in all I'll be quite busy. Fingers crossed there will be a Friday finish but I don't think there will be.

I am linking to WIP wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.

  1. Just a thought for you. My design wall is a dollar store plastic table cloth with a fuzzy backing. I thumbtacked it to the wall and it works a treat!

    1. That is a great idea. I am sure I could hang something in front of the bookshelves...Watch this space.

  2. I love the winding way, and your eldest's blocks are wonderful.

    1. I am so proud of her. Bit annoying that she keeps borrowing my machine but that will be sorted soon. I am having my old machine serviced and then she can use it.
