Work in Progress Wednesday

It is still frigid here in Michigan. The best way to deal with the cold is to stay in and sew! And that is what I am trying to do, other than the day job, of course. I finished the envelope top this week.

And then I remembered that I had some swap blocks due at the local quilt meeting this month. I didn’t think I had enough of the right fabrics on hand but I didn’t want to go out in the cold, nor did I want to purchase fabrics for swap blocks. The directions said to use lime green and hot fabrics. Hmmmm….I did have a great lime green. I shopped mt stash and came up with these.

I think I have enough to make the required 15 blocks. I would like to make 5 more just to have enough for a bigger quilt. So far, I have one block done.

I hope to get another made before work today. Better get moving!

    Love your envelope quilt! I’d already committed to going to the Y to walk with my neighbor Lois or I would have stayed in this morning. I definitely don’t plan on going anywhere else with as cold as it is here (I’m sure it’s even colder there) … it’s a stay inside and quilt kind of day for me! 😉

  2. Love the envelope quilt! I just finished one as a valentines table runner. Now I just need to catch up on blogging so that I can share it with everyone 🙂

    Great stash diving. The colors in your swap blocks work very well. And you stayed toasty warm.

    Love the envelope top!! Neat block/fun colors!

    Isn’t it satisfying when you can find what you need in your stash? And, maybe those fabrics aren’t exactly what you mentally pictured but they sure say lime and bright to me. That is a neat block but lots of pieces for a swap block. (Or I’m getting way too lazy in my old age!)

  12. Your envelope quilt turned out simply sweet! Love those bright and fun fabrics! I agree with your way to handle the cold….. Sewing while it’s snowing!

  13. I love the work in progress that looks cool.
