Quilting Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

With the holidays I’ve had more time off than normal so I’ve gotten a few things done.

I made this easy flag quilt.  I’ve had it pinned for a while.  I needed to add one extra strip to make it wide enough to be a QOV.

I got my St. Louis 16 patch back from the long arm quilter.  I like the pattern she did.  Now I have to get this bound because it has a home to go to.

I decided that this stack of fabric was going to be a Giant Star quilt but it rebelled. The center seam won’t come together. I’ve taken it apart 3 times and retrimmed blocks to make sure they are all the same size. I’ve pinned. It still is off so this one is in time out for a while.

I worked on my swoon quilt. I made the block in the upper right corner.  I don’t mind sewing these together but the cutting is mind-numbing.  I think I’m going to cut the rest of the blocks out next to get that out of the way.

Now I have a blogging question.  What do you use to host photos on your blog? I’ve always used Flickr but they’ve been changing it around and I’m having problems even getting on the site without it crashing my computer and I hate the new code for embedding pictures that makes it scrollable.  I don’t want to self host and have to pay for more space if there is another option.  I’m trying out Smugmug but it is relatively expensive once the trial is over.

  1. Morning! I’m off my network for work and can visit your blog (I know… crazy right?). :)

    I am all about being crafty this year, getting back to comforts from yesteryear. I’m even thinking about buying a sewing machine for a few simple projects. woohoo

    The quilt is amazing – such talent. I would LOVE to back able to do this some day.

    I love the flag quilt – the stars make it for sure! Good luck with the giant star – it’s a beautiful stack of fabrics (colors/textures).

  3. I think I can never get tired of the look of a swoon quilt.
    As for the pictures: I change in between just uploading them on blogger and flickr, so sorry, no great advice…
