WIP Wednesday

Another Wednesday is here already!  I have been trying to figure out what I want to work on next, besides starting new projects of course.

This week was super productive.  I have been working on a quilt for one of the girls that are in my church group, she is on her way to college next week, and we finished a quilt for her so she can have it when she starts on her new journey.  (I'll do a full post on this soon)
I made another scripture tote for one of the girls in my church group as well, she loves pink and purple. What more could a girl want?
Since I started my lonestar quilt last week, it has been my main focus.  I've got the blocks all pieced and now I am hand quilting it!  I've never hand quilted a quilt before, so I am just full of ambition on this project, and had to give it a go.  So far, so good!
I found a way to get around doing a Y-Seam, I'll share more with you about that journey, phew!  I am glad that is over.

This next week I want to keep on hand quilting my lonestar quilt, and start working on my warm/cool quilt-along quilt that I've been putting off for far too long.

Wow you have some beautiful projects! I got a quilt when I went off to college too, it was so nice to have. She'll love it! I love your Lonestar quilt. That's beautiful!

Looking good.........the lone star, I mean. Hand quilting is it's own reward....a little slower, but such a different look, and then sometime later you're snuggling under the quilt or passing it and you think, "wow, I did every one of those stitches by hand ! Amazing!"


A little tip......when quilting by a seam, if you quilt on the side that is AWAY from the seam allowance, you don't have as many layers of fabric to needle through.

I'm loving the colors in the college-girl quilt.

Heather - you always have the most beautiful colors in your quilt. I always enjoy seeing what you are up to next.
I need you to come and spend some time with me and help me to make my pile of stash into quilts lol.
