WIP Wednesday and I submitted my quilt

I finished my quilt for the Modern Quilt Guild Challenge.  I'll post pictures on April 1st, the day after the deadline.  I agonized over my written description for days.  It's rather like writing a cover letter for a resume.

My mother has been visiting for the last week, so I haven't gotten much sewing done and I had zero time for posting.  I did get my mom to help me finish up 2 big projects.  I got Happy Robots bound.  We ended up machine sewing the binding.  Well, I did the long sides and hand finished the corners.  I'm so glad I had some help.  I double bed sized quilt is really hard to manipulate on your own.  I also got the BGBGB quilt top finished, the backing sewn and it's off to the quilter.  I picked a paisley pantograph, that I think should work perfectly.  It will be feminine, but not over the top cutesy.  The paisley pattern will also pick up the paisley from the corner blocks.

Finally, I got my wedges cut for the big dresden plates in Lily's Quilts: QAL.  I'm only a week behind.  I should be able to catch up, since I'm only making a 4 plate cuddle quilt, instead a bed sized quilt.

I got a few more blocks sewn for MIL's framed squares quilt.  I think everything is cut for the top.

I need to get the blue and yellow disappearing nine patch basted.  I think I need to do a back, it's probably wider than a width of fabric.


  1. Ugh...writing up something like that is never easy. Why is it so hard to talk good about ourselves or our work?!

  2. Oh I can't wait to see your project modern quilt. I did one and couldn't wait to post it. Seriously, I'm not good with secrets. I agonized over my write up too.

  3. Can't wait to see your dresden for the Lily's Quilts qal! That's such a fun design. And good luck with your Project Modern entry!

    Thanks for linking up, have a wonderful week.
