What's going on this week is mostly a lot of thinking and planning and getting organized. Happy New Year! I'm working on my Midnight Mystery blocks, which I'll show you soon, but I'm also thinking about a couple upcoming projects.
One is a Wizard of Oz themed baby quilt. I'm waiting on some fabrics to arrive, so I can see if I can make my vision come to life. It's a gift for my sister who is expecting a baby in March. Probably no peeks until I give it to her.
The second project I'm trying to get a handle on is my Rainbow Mini Swap quilt for round 2. We ship at the beginning of March, so I have a lot of time, but I've decided to paper piece a million little triangles.
Okay, not a million, but a bunch. I've prepped a bunch of fabric for the project. I'm using five Modern Background Paper prints in white for the background, and a rainbow of fabrics for the feature design.
The paper piecing itself shouldn't be tough. I think these units lend themselves to chain piecing. Yay! But I'm a little intimidated by the upcoming y-seams when I attach them all together. The pattern is Hexie Tiles by Julie at 627handworks.
Another new project this month will be a Color Strata quilt. I'm taking my first quilting class, with Rob Appell when he's in town to speak at SCVQA at the end of the month. His free tutorial is available online. I decided to use Christa Watson's designer palette of Kona for this project. I'll also have a pop color to contrast with these reds, oranges, yellows and greens.
Tomorrow I'll show you the lengthy WIP list these projects have been added to. ;-)
Thanks for visiting. I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
