Work in Progress...



Continuing in the manner that I do things... this is what I am working on right now.  I tend to finish one quilt before I start another. This is Geometric Slide from the wonderful book by Katie, Lee and Faith, Vintage Quilt Revival. I really love this book.  And I really love this quilt.  It goes together pretty quickly.  I only have 2 more blocks to make and then I can start adding in the solid white.  Of course I had to make a whole lot of these half square triangles first...


And then there was a whole pile of this...  I am not a fan of the trimming but I do really admire the results!
So fun!  What are you working on?  Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for Work in Progress Wednesday and the Needle and Thread Network.

  3. I'm very much a finish one project before starting another type. I think for me it's a space issue. But regardless, I love your project, the colours are nice and cheerful and the design is fun.

  12. I've been feeling uncertain about this book. Just not sure if it's exactly "me". But the more projects I see people do with it, the more I want it :)

  19. That pile of trimmings is so cute! The birds might want those come spring.
    Do you still love your Janome 7700? I might have to break down and buy a new machine.
