W.i.P. Wednesday

by Nicole

Living under restrictions is not easy! I’m happy to say that I’ve resisted the temptation to start a new project. For more on my self-imposed restriction, click here.


I have taken a break from the curves project. I got a bit stuck with the quilting. The quilting has been more challenging for me than piecing the curves. I figured out what to do with the wedges – back and forth arcs, but what about all that negative space?!?

While I think on it, I’ve been working on a w.i.p. that has been hanging on my design wall for some time. Here’s a peek at one of the blocks.

I’m loving the text fabric that I pieced into one of the blocks.

be gentle

It’s a nice reminder for when life gets a little crazy.

Linking up to W.i.P. Wednesday!

I love this text fabric too, Nicole, and was wondering whose fabric line it is.

Love the word on the quilt. We all need restrictions in our life.

Good for you, staying on track with your restrictions! And I always have the hardest time deciding what to quilt in negative space. Sometimes you just need to set it aside and wait until it speaks to you!

Good plan to set the curves aside until the right idea comes to mind! I don't know if you're a member of a bee or a guild, but I often find that a quilt consult from some quilty pals can really help in these situations.

I love this! What fabric line is that text fabric?!?

Katy Cameron July 5, 2014 - 8:26 pm

I have to admit, sometimes the quilting just stumps me, I never plan in advance and then I sometimes get paralysing mind blanks!
