Wednesday Wait Loss 71 from The Inquiring Quilter

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss!

I've had a busy week. First, I finally finished my May Island Batik challenge--a pillow! Or in this case, two pillows that together make one dog gone cute dachshund. You can read all about it here.

Next, I made Block 3 in the Fall into a Quilt Along. I'm one of the block designers and also a host. I'd love for you to quilt along with us! Read all about Block 3 here.

Wednesday Wait Loss 70 from The Inquiring Quilter

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss!

It's all rainbows here because last night I got the last of my two secret sewing quilts back from the quilter! On the way to the quilter's studio, I went through a rainstorm, then saw this lovely rainbow.

The symbolism of emerging from a driving rainstorm to see a rainbow did not escape me. <grin>

So I'm all smiles on the Wednesday Wait Loss because my two secret sewing projects are done. Since they use fabrics in the Fall/Winter collections, I won't be able to show you my quilts for ...

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss! Please share your quilty works in progress and recent finishes with us!

No surprise, I spent the week with secret sewing. The good news is I've almost got the top done. The bad news is I've got another quilt to make right behind this one.

Here's a sneak peek. <grin>

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss! I invite you to share your quilty works in progress and recent finishes with us. This week is a special Wednesday Wait Loss, but more on that later. First, let me tell you what I've been up to.

Basically, it's more secret sewing for me. I've finished the cutting for the two quilts I'm making and I've starting making a bazillion flying geese it seems, for the first of the two quilts that are destined for an Island Batik trunk show.

I also made the first block in our fall ...

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss! Here, you'll find encouragement to get those pesky works in progress off your To-Do list!

I finished Wicked Envy and I'm getting tired of waiting for the snow and the rain and yes, the flooding to subside for me to get my glamor shots. We have had some very nice days in-between all the yech, but wouldn't you know that's when I've been working at the shop? I'm beginning to think this quilt is casting a spell! <grin>

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss where you can share your unfinished quilt projects and receive encouragement to finally finish them!

Me, I finished Wicked Envy last week but it's been either raining or snowing since. I may have to give up on an outdoor photo shoot. Sigh.

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss and Happy Easter to you! For this week's link up, I invite you to share quilty Easter projects--think bunnies, candy, eggs, baskets, tulips, daffodils, spring colors and so on.

Easter baskets 2.jpg

This week I finished Wicked Envy but the weather continues to be plum awful. First we had record-breaking snow, then two days of rain. The wet conditions outside and the dim light inside has made it hard for me to get any good photos but I promise to share it soon.

Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss, where you'll get rid of whatever's making you wait--and not finish--your quilting projects!

This week I made progress on several fronts. First, I finished my block for Paige @ Quilted Blooms, who is sharing Queen honors with me this month for Bee Inspired. Paige asked for a simple block using modern novelty fabrics. She's calls the block "Modern Eye Spy."

Since the block is so simple, Paige asked us to make more than one if we could. I made three and they were fun! Paige is planning on using the blocks to make ...

Last week I worked on the current block for my online bee, Bee Inspired. It was Ann's turn in February, and she chose this block.

The process for making the block is extraordinarily simple. You start with some scraps. Ann wanted brights in her block, so I piled up my bright scraps. I have a lot of scraps already cut to about 2", so I ...
