In the Meantime ...

Quilter's PlayI am still thinking about the details of how to quilt the bright boomers and log cabins.

I have a pretty good idea how I will approach it, but am mulling over some of the details.

And I need to decide on thread color(s).

Oak Leaf Blocks
I am also still playing around with ideas about what to do with those big scrappy Oak Leaf blocks–my goal for March.

I have decided to make a few more of the large scrappy Oak Leaf blocks and which colors I need to add.

In the meantime, I pulled out a little finished quilt top–made in a workshop long ago and far away–and I'm quilting it. Here it is, in progress, under the needle, almost quilted.

Finishing an Old Workshop Project

Working on this reminded me of what I didn't like about my piece–the raw edged appliqué leaves stitched with an open zig zag–and what I loved about the workshop–the sketching exercises that led to my original design.  And maybe those reminders are a good reason to work on finishing more UFOs.

I'm joining the lists for WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced and Esther's WOW (WIPS on Wednesday).

I LOVE the wonderful colors in the Log Cabin quilt!

I can't wait to see that leaf quilt finished. It is going to be wonderful too.

The color is amazing on your quilt under the needle. What great shapes, too.
