WIP Wednesday - late night photos

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Modest progress this week accompanied by poorly lit photos and semi-lyrical captions. Enjoy!

On the 16th day of November (ok I know it is the 14th) my true love gave to meeeeee 16 figure 8 scarves in various states of completion. From left to right. Completed scarves. Pinned and pressed and waiting for the final hand stitching step. Not pinned not pressed, tired from the rest.

Spinning stars {and geese} quilt is mid-quilting. You can kinda see it here. Loops in the solid rings...

And filling in the stars with a back-and-forth squiggle (There has to be a legit name for that which I don't know). 

Quilting this guy has been a bit of a nightmare but I will discuss that in a later post because I firmly believe that the nightmare will have a happy ending.

 In other non-picture worthy news. I made three more scrappy blocks (red ones) for my scrappy placemats.

And that's it for this weeks WIPnesday. Check out the other projects at Freshly Pieced.


  1. I love the swirly quilting with the variegated thread! :) Hopefully it won't be as much of a beast as you keep going with it.

  2. Love that variegated thread! You have quite a figure eight sweat shop going on there!

  3. I'm so jealous that you're so close on your mass-produced gift of the season! I'm starting to think I should've chosen something simpler than aprons. I may have missed it, but have you mentioned if you get to keep your spinning stars and geese quilt? I'd have a seriously hard time giving that up if I were you. I can't wait to see it quilted!

  4. That's a lot of scarves - you go! :D

  5. The scarves will make such a fantastic gift! I sure like Spinning Stars too!

  6. Very nice! Hurry up and finish that spinning stars. I want to see it!

  7. Try late night blogging - how delirious were you when you wrote this? I friggin love it - I sang the one part to myself.
