Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss. Please share your quilty works in progress and recent finished quilts with us!
Let me tell you what I've been up to.
I got my June Island Batik challenge quilt done, and wrote up a post all about it.
The June challenge was to make a modern quilt. I'm really liking this one! Considering I had to finish it using my small portable sewing machine (my big machine is in the shop--I hope it makes it because I don't know if I can afford to replace it right now.)
The July challenge is to design a quilt with a secondary pattern. I've got my idea for that one and need to finalize which fabrics I'm using.
I also worked on O Tannenbaum, the WIP challenge at the quilt shop where I work. I've got to finish the applique for the challenge and if I do, the top will be done! My plan is to do a little each night.
Oh! I made a video of the opening of the latest box I've received from Island Batik. I won't spoil anything, but I can tell you it's filled with batik goodness! The video is being edited by my daughter and I should be able to post it on Saturday.
So it's been a busy week!
Let's see who made this week's feature.
First up this week is Bobbi @ Snowy Days Quilting. Bobbi shared her tips for making block-sized design boards. If you've never thought of making one of these, you really should! I have one that I bought years ago at a quilt retreat and I love it. I use it to organize block pieces before sewing them together, and to go back and forth to the ironing board.
Next up is Alice, who finished this awesome quilt for a recent graduate. I really love the colors in this one. It's like a gorgeous stained glass window! Alice shared the back of her quilt as well, which is almost as gorgeous as the front!
Finally, I'd like to feature Gail @ Quilting Gail, who shared a baby quilt with Minky on the back.
Despite sharing a quilt finish, Gail was feeling a bit melancholy so she shared the reasons why her UFOs never get done. I'll bet we can all relate that! Please stop by her blog and give her a good dose of WWL (Wednesday Wait Loss) encouragement!
Congratulations Bobbi, Alice, and Gail! Thank you so much for sharing your quilts with us. Here's an I Was Featured badge for your blogs.
Our next special link up is next week on July 18th!
The US celebrates it's independence in July, so let's fill up next week's linkup with red, white, and blue quilts.
I'll be having another giveaway, so get your quilts ready for the link up! To qualify, quilts do not need to be patriotic or have anything to do with the Fourth of July, but they do need to contain at least some red, some white, and some blue (all three colors). You'll get one chance for every WIP or finished quilt you link up, and an extra chance if that project is red, white, and blue!
OK, time to link up! Remember, if you need help linking up, click here for detailed step by steps.
