Wednesday Works in Progress Aug 6, 2014

What a sewing weekend!  I had a couple of extra days and, boy, did I make use of them!

I had a class assignment to work on - plus two granddaughters coming in a few days - plus a new month!  Plenty to get me motivated... and over-extend of course!!

The class assignment is a butterfly border.  Which I did not complete - but I did make the butterflies (the most time consuming part!)

Next I need to square them up, cut plain squares to go between them and actually make the borders for my Traditional English Ladies quilt.

Since it's a new month, I wanted to get a block or two done on the quilts I selected to work on in 2014....

So there is this block from a quilt I started in 2008

I determined to finish it this year doing one or two blocks per month.

And these from one I started in January.  I can't wait to share that one - it's one where I saw the design and envisioned something completely different than the way it was portrayed.

Also doing a few blocks per month...

And then last week, I saw something in a traditional block.  The block is called Old Maid's Puzzle..... and somehow I saw fish.

So I am playing with it!  So far I've made 8 blocks (4 this session).  I had someone ask me how many I needed for my project.. and my answer?  I don't know what the project is yet :-)  I guess we will see when I get tired of creating blocks!

As you've seen before, I was using these Churn Dash blocks as anchor cloth project

so got 4 more finished

But used these 2 border sections (from 2 other projects) as anchor cloth projects instead!

I finished enough sewing to put things away for a few days.. I need to clean up my studio and get ready to enjoy the grand girls.  There won't be much sewing again for another week.

Stay tuned and you will see how all of these projects end up!

I did finish up an afghan - a crochet along project sponsored by String With Style.  I've been working on it for a few months trying to use up some of my stash!

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out...

What are you creating this week?  Are you working on one project or a bazillion like me?
