WIP Wednesday

I have been working on my Easy Street mystery quilt this week. I had a UFO sewing day with the Leduc Black Gold Quilt Patch on Monday. I had these blocks done a few months back but I really did not like the Grey four patches and I changed them to pink four patches. Big improvement, I am much happier with the pink.

The wall also has my orange Sprout blocks on the left. On the bottom right is my Around About. Both of these are part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013 that I have been following along. One the bottom left you can see the red and green project, that is a Christmas table runner I have quilted it but need to trim and bind still. I did not get it done for Christmas but maybe I can get it done in time of one of the guild quilt shows and the next Christmas.

Here is my box of patches that still need to be sewn into blocks. I have all the out triangles done but need to complete 21 more blocks. If you want to see more about the Easy Street Mystery go see the pattern on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville site. The pattern is only going to be there for a few more weeks, as she will take it down and publish the pattern in her next book. 

I have 7 orchid plants flowering now and two more about to pop. This is just one of the plants flowering and it is so perfect today. I hope spring hurries up, it is very much winter here today with blowing snow and drifting. Tonight is the Edmonton guild meeting and I am wondering if I should be out driving in the dark. 

Now back to more machine quilting for my customers. I have a few deadlines for quilts this month. 

I have linked today's post with Freshly Pieced and Needle and Thread Network


  1. wow, so much eye candy. Loving the pink substitute in Easy Street. that Orchid is fabulous!! Be ever so careful if you are coming into guild tonight.

  2. Love your pink four patches in the Easy Street Mystery. I was working on sewing mine together yesterday. Hopefully I'll have a top later this week. Love your pretty flowers - very springy.

  3. Your Easy Street quilt is very pretty. I like the pink.

    Do you re-pot your orchids? I have one that needs desperately to be re-potted but I am afraid I will kill it. What type of soil do you use?

  4. I don't remember the greys, Cathy, but you are quite right about the pink in the 4 patches. Looks great! Maybe you were inspired by the colour of your beautiful orchids? ;-)


  5. I do like the pink in those blocks! They are going to make a gorgeous quilt! I have one orchid blooming right now (yay!), but it has had buds since December and many buds keep drying up. I wish I knew how to make it *really* happy so it would produce more than two little flowers. Good job with yours, they are lovely!

  6. These are flowers are real of just for decorative purpose?

  7. You use such lovely clear colours!
