WIP Wednesday, 3/23/22

 I have only a couple of things to show for the week.

I finished another Double Ruby Ring block, this time in fall tones. I really like this one, but I probably say that about each block as it is completed.

I love following Dana from Old Red Barn. She incorporates ginghams and checks into nearly every quilt she makes. I took some time the other day to gather most of my ginghams into one handy place.

This mug arrived the other day. It is perfect in every way--color (mustardy--one of my favorites), flying geese (one of my favorite quilting shapes), size (not too large), and handle (just the right size for three fingers), hand thrown by Alexia Abegg.

On Saturday, I was able to have a virtual sew day with @stephiepeterson and @purduepam, coincidentally National Quilting Day! We worked on getting caught up on our Hygge Quilt Along by Annemarie Chaney. I'm using the Holiday Homies line of flannel by Tula Pink. It was so much fun to spend time with friends, even through a computer screen.

I picked up these four quilts from my fabulous quilter, Darby, this morning. I had given her another one, but we came to an agreement that an edge-to-edge design would not be the best choice. I have some ideas. I might even try to quilt it myself. 

I've started making some blocks out of a beautiful Oakshott collection named Jett. The warp threads are black and they give the blocks a moody, Amish kind of vibe. I'll have more to show next week.

Definite Amish vibe (do the Amish 'vibe'?) in that last one. I'm also loving the quilting chose for you Art Deco quilt (I forget the name) and for your scrappy trips those billion bubbles are so fun.

PS All of your quilt blocks can be your favorite, just like your children can all be your favorite.

Yes a very Amish feel. It looks so rich and moody. I am in love with your ruby ring blocks so can understand how each new one becomes your favorite. They're going to look so so wonderful together. They feature rich colors but with a very lively undertone.

It’s great to see you doing so much quilting again. I LOVE the Ruby Ring block.
