My First Work-in-Progress Wednesday

This is my first ever Work in Progress Wednesday, but I’ve been on a hot blogging streak, so I thought I’d join in!  Check out the other WIP’s by hitting up the freshly pieced blog.

Here is my Project Modern 2 quilt pile: sea of reds ready to be pieced into blocks, squared, and sewn together.  I bought my reds for the backing and binding, but this week I’m only focused on assembling the top (that’s my One Thing, One Week, Challenge!). I’m really nervous I’m going to hate this quilt, but I’m excited all the same.  Here’s hoping it exceeds my expectations and even wins me some Kona Solids!

“But Jenna, this doesn’t look like anything!” … I know, right?!

As for any other projects I have going on…

1.  Alison’s Birthday Pillow covers have been visualized in my mind and fabrics are purchased.    They will be inspired by more Marca-Relli prints, like Grace’s Quilt I made for Christmas.

2. Sweater pillow covers for Christmas.  I have the torsos left over from my Sweater Sleeve Wine Bags and I think they’d look cute as throw pillow covers for the holidays.

3. Another belated Christmas craft – I have a bag full of wooden, decoupaged ornaments that need hanging strings and some other ornaments that need full assembly.  These are not really sewing crafts, but important to me all the same : )   I really want to get these done soon while I still remember where I hid the Christmas decorations!

  1. Those red are going to be striking when you get them pieced together!

    Ooooh, red’s a great choice for the monochromatic quilt challenge. I’m sure it’ll be fabulous – if it’s anything like those top two pillows over there in your Flickr gadget, I KNOW it will be fabulous!

    Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday! See you next time!

  3. Good idea to get the Christmas crafting done early. Trying to get projects finished in December drives me nuts-o.
