WIP Wednesdays

Since I'm not very good about blogging regularly or sharing my work in progress, I thought to start checking in, once a week and sharing whatever it is I'm working on, in whatever state it exists.

In June, I swapped some Stretched Stars blocks and, last weekend, when a friend invited me over for breakfast and a day of sewing, I thought the time was ripe to make the extra blocks I wanted to make a small quilt.

Stretched Star Blocks

Here they are on the design wall at the end of the day. I had decided to add some yellow, some green and some more red stars and I like how it looks . . . except now I think it needs more yellow more green and maybe some orange stars added to the mix. This small quilt is growing . . . and I haven't even decided whether to sash these blocks or not.

Anyone want to join me for WIP Wednesdays and share whatever they're working on or thinking about today?

I think WIP Wednesday is a great idea! I also agree that a couple more yellow and green stars wouldn't hurt, but I sure like it just the way it is.

Expect a WIP Wednesdays button soon ... and a push to join me ;-)

As for the star quilt, I think part of me just wants to make a bigger quilt, maybe an oversized throw, at least.

I love your stars, Sophie. I have a UFO in a box somewhere in this pattern...from back in my blue and white phase...Maybe I'll run across it in my sewing room shift...which is the project I am working on this particular Wed...and probably a few nmore Wednesdays to come! As for sewing, I am almost finished hand piecing an outside triangle on my Jane Stickle quilt which will leave me with only 5 more to go when it is done...which it will be tonight...Wed WIP is a great idea...=-)

I think you should introduce this idea to the Quilt Studio forum and let's get others sharing their Wed work too.

Count me in!
