I'm finally doing a Wednesday work in progress post, even though its Thursday in Australia !!
When I was struggling to do posts for my poor neglected blog last year I always thought I could just do a WIP post and link up to Freshly Pieced but I have never managed to do one ... until today !!
I have so many works in progress right now so maybe its just the right time :)
These are the projects I've been working on this week.
First up is The Starburst Quilt that I'm pattern testing for Jess at Elven Garden Quilts
its just fabulous - the blocks are huge, finishing at 32 inches...I'm doing four blocks to make a lap quilt.
they're really fun and surprisingly quick to put together. I can't wait to see this top put together - yes, I'm not even considering the quilting yet - have you seen my 2015 wish list !!!
another WIP is my Hazel pillow - I joined in Angie's Hazel QAL a few weeks ago but as I had other commitments didn't get it finished in time to link-up !
I also had a drama with a dirty iron - gggrrrr ! not quite sure what happened but my iron had marks on it when I pressed the glasses (I suspect its maybe glue from interfacing !) so those marks transferred to Hazel - I sprayed and soaked immediately but it didn't have any effect - so she is getting a bow after she has been quilted.
I'm also going to use pompoms around the edge of this pillow for an extra bit of fun - fingers crossed that I can find lime green pompoms !!
I also spent most of the last week working on The Betsy Travel Bag.
I'm pattern testing this gorgeous bag for Kristi of Schnitzel and Boo and Rebel Media !
The pattern will be published soon so I'll be able to show the finished bag then and I'll also be having a pattern giveaway to celebrate. Kristi has plans for a Betsy Travel Bag QAL over on instagram which starts on 1 April. I'll have more details soon.
