Welcome to WIP Wednesday!
I’ve been participating in this online accountability forum since last summer. Along the way I have shared a plethora of projects. Some of those items have long since been completed and then again some of them are still hanging around.
One of My Favorites
One of my all-time favorite WIP projects has been by-far the Heart & Home quilt by Heart to Hand. This lovely wool quilt has been hanging around in my to-do basket since early last year. Slowly, ever so slowly, I’ve been plodding along. I’ve had two occasions when I’ve actually spent the better part of an entire day focused solely on this quilt. The first was during the Madison Modern Quilt Guild‘s sewing day in December and the second was last Sunday. If my hubby hadn’t been out-of-town the majority of the previous week I probably would have participated in the Madison Modern Quilt Guild’s sewing day on the 19th. My hubby assured me it I stayed home with him all day Saturday he would afford me a day of uninterrupted sewing on the 20th.
Much Was Accomplished
By the time my hubby had filled our home with the most amazing aroma of home-made chicken soup my day of progress on my Heart & Home quilt had come to a close. As I switched off the light on my Pfaff sewing machine I paused to admire the almost finished blocks. All that’s left to do on all but one block is the hand embellishments. Pictured below are the blocks I worked on.
Block # 6 (Hand stitching left to do)
Block # 7 ( Hand stitching left to do)
Block # 8 (Hand stitching left to do)
Block # 9 (As you can see I still must stitch down the applique pieces)
Block # 10 (Hand stitching left to do)
Block # 11 (Hand stitching left to do)
Block # 12 (ALL DONE!!!)
Once I complete the miscellaneous tasks on these blocks I can finally sew them all together. I can’t wait to make it to that point. You can be sure I will share an update when that finally happens. Until then I’ll keep working along.
That’s it For Now
My WIP update is now finished. I have linked up with Freshly Pieced. Make sure you visit her blog to see what everyone else has been doing.
