WIP Wednesday – Slowly but Surely

carla Quilting 5 Comments

It’s been several weeks since I posed a WIP Wednesday, so let me get caught up. I don’t have a lot of pictures, but I did get a few things done. First and foremost I quilted and bound two of my Nani Iro quilts, the wedding quilt and the one for me. The wedding quilt has been gifted to its …

March do. Good Stitches – Mosaic Block & Paper Piecing Tips

carla Quilting, Tips and Tricks 3 Comments

I’m getting started a little early on March’s blocks because I know paper piecing might be new to some of my circle and I want to give you a little extra time.

Since last Wednesday I have finished putting the sleeve on HST Journey and dropped it off at the gallery to be hung (the opening is Saturday, I can’t believe it!) On Saturday I also finished my Waterfront Park top, pre-washed …

WIP Wednesday: Waterfront Park take 1

carla Quilting 5 Comments

After my frustrations using the lovely but slightly irritating Nani Iro last week, I decided I needed to chuck my list out the window and play with a new stack of fabric – Violet Craft’s Waterfront Park. When the line came out I only bought part of it – charcoal gray, navy, peach, purple, white, and teal. I also didn’t …
