Wednesday WIP

Happy Wednesday!

It's been ages since I did a Wednesday WIP post.  Believe me, it is not for lack of Works-In-Progress.  Plenty of those around here!

Today I started on another pillow, using a quilt-as-you-go technique.


Don't you just love the colour scheme?

I did not come up with it myself. Back in May, my bee mate Carly, of Citric Sugar requested these Curved Improv Log Cabins in gray, yellow and pink.  And that Denyse Schmidt flower print is one of my favourites.


I have left the trimming to Carly, but if you check out her post, you will see the what they will look like when they are rounder.  I can't wait to see what she does with them.

I really loved these colours together, in fact I still had most of these fabrics out, so picking fabrics for my pillow was quite easy.

Here is the result of my hour long session in the sewing room tonight.  Time well spent!

All that's left to do is embroider the recipient's name on the bright pink strip, and make the back of the pillow.

 
Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and off to see what others are working on!

  5. Curved log cabins... oh my! I often find myself re-using fabric palettes, especially when one project or another is destined to live at someone else's house and I won't get to enjoy it myself! ☺
