WiPs for a Sunday

I have many ongoing Works in Progress, but these are the ones that are on my mind today!


My current slow-stitching hexie project:

What I thought was happening two weeks ago -

And how they look right now - 

Can you tell I've been focusing on the blue hexies recently?

I know this will become a table-topper eventually, but it needs to be longer and wider.  I have two more diamonds to attach somehow, but I'm thinking I will also add in a new color - something low volume, cream tone-on-tone.  This project is definitely still evolving!  I work on this a little bit each evening, and am enjoying the slow progress very much!

Almost There

the Squirrel, I mean, Village:

Last week -

This week -  I added these two sections - 

then stitched all the blocks together into a final layout, and worked on the quilting -

It won't take much longer to get this one finished up.  Maybe I will even be slow-stitching some binding later on today!

And one last WiP that has been Overlooked recently!

I last posted about my bird blocks a couple weeks ago, and they are still in this same pile!  Once I finish the quilting and the machine stitching part of the binding for the Village, I'll be able to start sewing these together.  First things first, of course!  

Hope you're having a great weekend! I'll be sharing over at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching and at Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!

I absolutely LOVE your village!
I've been "slow-crocheting" instead of slow sewing in the evenings. :D

I love the 'birds' in the sun block and how the one overlaps into another block. That's a very cute quilt.

Louise said...

Wow, your Squirrel Village just leapt into being! I love that you're almost finished with that cute little piece :)

Laura said...

I like the direction that your evolving table runner is taking!

You have lots of projects to keep you busy! Hexi projects are sure time consuming and yours is coming right along. Your village is lovely. Have fun with your bird project.

Even after all these years I still get amazed how much the actual quilting does for any quilt. I love how creative you got with this one-the sun rays, perfect!

Sharon said...

I have too many projects started as well! When I want to relax, I go to my EPP projects. Your little village quilt is darn cute!
