I’ve got a half-dozen works in progress, but only one of them has been getting very much attention recently. I’ve been making pretty steady progress on my Scrappy Trip-Along quilt, though I fully expect things to slow down for me now that classes are back in session, and my assistantship starts up again. Thankfully, the … Continue reading Scrappy Trip-Along (WiP Wednesday)
The fall semester has been kicking up into gear, so I’ve had less time to work on projects recently. It’s also influenced what I’ve been working on to a certain extent. That said, I’ve still gotten some things done! Finished: I made three notebook covers for classes, following Rachel’s tutorial on Stitched in Color.

Poor packing … Continue reading Blocks of the Month, halfway done.

Man, do I feel behind! Jeni just posted the July Block, and I haven’t even made up a single June block … Continue reading Half-Square Triangle Block of the Month
I’m participating in Jeni (of In Color Order)’s Half-Square Triangle Block of the Month quilt along.
