WIP Wednesday

I have another little work in progress this week.

I was influenced by all the wonderful little windmill quilts made by Kathie at Inspired by Antique Quilts. These blocks will finish at 4 inches square.


I am really loving the vintage aqua and red look lately. I like the vintage colors much better than the newer versions in such lines as Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille.

I have been practicing my free motion feathers with scraps of batting and bits of pieces of leftovers fabrics on the long arm. I didn’t want to take my practice stuff off to quilt my tiny posy quilt so I loaded it like this:


I used magnets to attach the backing to the idle bar and the belly bar. Now I need to figure out how to quilt it.

I am linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and Lorna for Let’s Bee Sewcial.

    I ordered the template set Kathie referenced, as well, and last night I was cutting out windmill blocks to use as leader/enders. Mine are in CW repros, but my colors are red, blue and black. Interesting to see how close our color choices are. : )
    Your little posy is very cute!
