Work in Progress Wednesday: Slow and Steady

carla Charity, Quilting 3 Comments

Since I got hurt a couple of weeks ago I haven’t made a ton of progress. Lots of little things (and one big-ish thing!) but not a lot of substantial progress. I worked on the Star Surround QAL. I’m very glad I’m only doing one 48″ block – any more and I wouldn’t be able to keep up. There are …

I’ve been quietly working away on a Schoenrock Cross (one of my bucket list items!) and made it into a pillow for the Montgomery County, MD Modern Quilt Guild Modern Art Challenge Swap. I was given one of Van Gogh’s “Almond Blossoms” by Susan as my inspiration. I don’t know her very well, but she brought the book “Pillow Pop” …

Fabric from Amy, left, and box of fat eighths, right. I had a blast with Amy looking through her stash and sharing mine. Originally I intended …
