Work in Progress Wednesday - it's all about the blues

Hi Everyone!  It's all about the blue and whites this week with two projects on the go, one nearing completion...don't you just love that?....and another that needs a little more work.  

This is my Cool Blues quilt and has been sitting in the UFO pile since June, just waiting for the binding...sure hope I can find the fabric...have you done that too? Set aside fabric for binding then use it in another project?  Fingers crossed that fabric is just where I left it.....somewhere in the sewing room ;-)

A closer look - each block is made of eight hourglass blocks and sixteen flying geese.  There are sixteen blocks in the quilt...oh yes, that's a whole lot of flying geese.  I had this quilt long-armed.  I'm not brave enough to machine quilt a queen-size quilt on my little Janome (yet!).

The second project in the works, my First Snowfall quilt - I'll add a one-inch blue border around this and add another white border before putting it together and quilting it.  I'll be quilting this one myself.

  1. Wow, those two quilts are impressive! There are so many pieces!

  2. Love your blues! They are both beautiful quilts.

  3. I love that Cool Blues quilt! You did a fantastic job piecing!

  4. That's a lot of geese to get flying in formation. Lovely blues.

  5. love both of those blue projects. Yes, I have lost binding fabric in my sewing room. Turned out it was almost exactly where I had left it, only it had slipped off the shelve and was on the ground behind it.

  6. Blue and white are great together. LOL you made me chuckle. I can't tell you how many hours I have spent in the past couple of days looking for my C-clamps because I want to put a quilt on the frame. I put them in a safe place but could not for the life of me remember where that was. Well, I found them today - finally. Hope you find your binding.


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
