WIP Wednesday



WIP Wednesday is upon me and i can't believe that it has been so long since i last blogged anything. I blame it on a prolonged sugar crash from that ice cream cake!



This week i have been working on a quilt that was not originally on my to do list. It was just cute and so i thought i would give it a whirl. The pattern is from Simplify, my new favorite quilting book, by Camille Roskelley.




I had first thought to do some FMQ on this, but then i changed my mind after spending 1/2 an hour picking out stitches from my first attempt...i then decided that straight lines would be a great next plan.



And this little lady is just a token addition to this post(here you go MIL).

Go over to Lee's at Freshly Pieced and have a look and see what others are up to this week. There is so much great eye candy!!!

Hi Leslie...lovely to see a snippet of this quilt on the WIP linky and it piqued my interest. Would love to see a bit more detail of your straight line quilting on it. Cheers, Fiona #108 on the WIP linky.
