FMF quilt top

I’m excited about this work-in-progress Wednesday report because I’m in the middle of finishing up one of my favorite quilts ever! I’ve been working on this queen sized quilt using flea market fancy prints mixed with solid colors, and I plan to put it on my bed when it’s done. I’ve made many quilts, but not one for my own bed! I’m currently quilting this one, and it’s really making me appreciate smaller quilts!

Also, taking a tally of my projects helps keep things real. I’m definitely a little behind on posting about finished quilts (I think I’ve been doing more sewing than blogging lately), and I have some fun stuff to share here in the next couple of weeks!

I also should note– I finished up and sent my bee block to Rachel this week. Here it is:

August bee block

I also pulled a stack of fabric and started sewing for the flickr swap I’m in. I’m excited with how this stuff is turning out!

Solid fabrics for swap

Stay tuned, I have a few finished quilts I’ll be revealing soon!

When joining a swap on flickr, it’s the usual protocol to make a mosaic of photos you love to give your swap partner ideas about what to make for you. This really helps a lot– in the last swap I did I went back to my partner’s mosaic a number of times to see if my ideas were on the right track! For the most recent swap I joined, “for the love of solids,” I put together this mosaic. I love seeing what other people’s favorites are on flickr, and here is a glimpse into mine! (If you want to see more like this, check out the for the love of solids group, there are a ton to peruse!).
