WIP Wednesday

I have been adding a white frame around the rainbow blocks that I had on my design wall. I plan to add the dark green fabric next in the same fashion that was done on This Quilt but she used grey. I just really dislike grey and hate to use it. So I will use Avocado Kona Cotton instead.  After I get this done I am planning to work on my blue scrapes again for Scrap Saturday.

I have added this post to Needle and Thread Network WIP Wednesday and Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday

I have been machine quilting lots this week. Here in Alberta we are having a heat wave and no AC in the house so the basement is the best place to be, working in my sewing studio. I think many other Alberta quilters are sewing too. I have had so many calls the past two days about doing machine quilting for them. Good, more work to keep me out of trouble.

This quilt is one of my customers that would like to remain unnamed. I am very happy how it has come out. I will be delivering it back to her this week and picking up the next two quilts she has for me to do. Yes, I sometimes pick up and deliver quilts.

Last night I had a Dog Agility Trial. It was an evening trial with just two runs. Talk about Hot. We did not pass the steeple chase class but we passed our Starter Jumpers. My dog was very good but had the one time were he visited the timer and scribe. What a friendly dog.


  1. Your rainbow blocks are much work. I'd go for the green too. The grey doesn't really match the bright colours in the blocks. That's my humble opinion anyway:)

  2. Love your rainbow blocks so much

  3. Love the rainbow blocks.....just lovely work...and your quilting; well I wish my FMQ was like that!!!

  4. Wow what awesome quilting! How long did it take you to quilt that flower quilt? That must be one happy customer.
