WIPs in January

Here is what a little OCD looks like:

These are 3 projects I am either working on or started here recently. I really wish my brain would let me just focus on one thing at a time, but I really can't seem to do that.

I've got a mini 9-patch quilt in progress. Started it while M. was working on hers. Although I don't intend mine to be quite as crazy and random as hers is it will still be loud and fun.

This disappearring 9 patch is from some fabric that I bought last year some time when one of the locations of my favorite local fabric store was relocating to a new building. They had some smoking deals on fabric that they didn't want to move. Love this wild and crazy color combo. I think I have enough of the multi-color "watercolor" print to use as the binding.

I just started this quilt but I have to get it done before Jan. 24th because I am pretty sure it is going to be a gift for a friend. I have all the blocks done--12 of them at about 17" square (I used 6" squares to begin with). Today or tomorrow I have to find some sashing piece that coordinates with it all because it needs to be a bit bigger and I don't want to make any more stars. It will end up being 3 stars across and 4 stars down.

Good luck with your own WIPs (works in progress).

  4. Can't wait to see this one finished, I have several of homespun plaids that I need to use up. I'm curious to see what you've backed and sashed this with.
