WIP Wednesday

No painting for me yesterday! I did spend a bit of time moving some things around in the newly painted bedroom. And I worked on my new little quilt that I shared yesterday. I started laying out pieces like this. 

And then decided that George needed a frame. I cut and trimmed wrong so ended up adding another. 


I got it quilted and found some leftover binding to finish it off. I got off work at 9 last night and after taking the dog out, settled down with a bit of hand binding with Bonnie.  

Have you ever watched Bonnie Hunter’s (Quiltville) Quilt Cam? First time I heard of it, I thought it odd. Watching someone quilt via web cam? But then I decided to watch one night while sewing in a hotel room when I was traveling alone. And it was rather fun! Bonnie gives tips and tricks as she sews, explains what she is working on etc. it is interesting to see a master at work and Bonnie is so down to earth and fun.

I got a bit of fabric in the mail yesterday for another project.  

This 12 inch square was not cheap. I purchased this on Etsy. It looked to be a good match for this charm square set I had gotten a while back. 

As you can see, the block is the right colors/style but more faded looking.  I think this is an old block that was scanned and is being reprinted kind of like Spoonflower fabric. I thought when I purchased that it was a regular reproduction print like Mary Koval’s line shown above.  I’m not quite sure what I will do with this now. A faded center medallion is not what I had in mind. I do not fault the seller, I should have done more research.

I want to make some more baby quilts to have on hand, especially boy quilts. I’m thinking of making some very simply pieced graphic quilts made with these solids. 

I’m itching to get something on the frame to quilt!

    Visiting from Let’s Bee Social. Love your “George”. If you tea dyed your charm squares, would it bring the brightness of the fabric more in line with your center square?

    “George’s” frames really work! Especially with your red binding.
    Agree “Tree of Life” too bright for panel. How ’bout surrounding the panel with little soft brown pieced baskets? Keep on quiltin’. Cwoosley12@yahoo.com
