New Wave quilt: I’m using the Sunday Best bundle from Pink Castle Fabrics, but I replaced the two white prints with blue and grey, because I didn’t want white tumblers framed by white sashing. (I promise, those ones that look white are actually light blue or light grey: I can’t find my real camera, and … Continue reading WiP Wednesday, January 2013
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.

I was in that state earlier when I was working on a set of blocks for my Simple Math quilt. Then I looked down … Continue reading I guess it’s not called frogging when you quilt, huh?
Of course, now that I’ve gotten to the point where I could, theoretically, bind and quilt the Nine-Patch quilt, my safety pins haven’t arrived in the mail.
