WIP Wednesday {3.21.12}

I can't believe it's Wednesday again! This one totally snuck up on me, but that's alright. It has been a really good week around here. Beautiful weather, lots of walks/playground time, and a good bit of sewing. The way life should be :)


Broken Diamonds

It is finished and I am so in love with it!

Skill Builder Sampler - block 26

We started back up again last Friday with a wonky stars block. Since I did a whole quilt of wonky stars not too long ago, I mixed it up and used the stargazing block from the book Modern Blocks. And I love it! 


Granny Squares quilt

I didn't mean to start this. I was cutting my scraps so I could do my scrappy triangles and was cutting little squares at the same time, and I wanted to try one. And one turned into 10. And now I'm just going to keep going until I get bored. I love these blocks. I added another round, partly because I wanted more color and partly because my squares are only 2". I have no plans for the size of this quilt, all I have to say is that I made 10 blocks and it barely looks like I made a dent in my scraps piles.

Still Going:

Echo Kaleidoscope
On hold until I figure out a back.

Tova Tunic
Fabric = washed and ready. Pattern = taped and cut. I am ready. And we start today!

Scrappy triangles
The triangles are cut. Most of them. I think. I guess that depends how big it ends up being. I forgot to take a picture of how big the piles ended up...but trust me, it is a lot of triangles. Maybe eventually I'll even feel brave enough to start sewing them together....

I suspect today will either find me working on my tova tunic or making more granny square blocks. Either way I am looking forward to it. Maybe I'll get lucky and get a granny squares top done to enter into the scrap attack festival of scrappiness at Stitched In Color next week. I doubt it, but we'll see.  For now, I think I need to go start enjoying this weather some more since it looks like it won't last forever. I believe our average high is in the 40's for this time of year and today is supposed to hit 80...but never fear, next week will be back to {almost} normal. Enjoy your day everyone!

  1. Don't you love the Granny Squares? Addictive! I know what you mean about the scraps. Mine looks like I haven't touched them at all. Love your Broken Diamonds!

  2. Hi, I hopped over from WIP Wednesday, I love the broken diamonds, it's a really effective pattern. I haven't made any granny's yet but I think I'll be on the bandwagon soon! :-)

  3. One turned into 10 huh? I really need to hold my resolve then! I'm tempted to try granny squares and I have some pieces cut, but I haven't actually started sewing them yet.

  4. I've just started making granny squares too even though there are other projects that should take precedent. Your broken diamond quilt is lovely.
