WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

This week I decided to work on some swap blocks. The first one up was a neutral block with a small amount of color.

For Ursi

The next one was anything in blue.

Here’s the whole group together.

I’ve worked on my machine quilting like I promised. I’m using Left Turn Right Turn from the Free Motion Quilting Project. I’ve gotten lost a few times (even though it is totally simple) so not all of my blocks line up but I don’t think anyone will notice that. The tension is right and the thread isn’t breaking so I’m counting that as a win.


I’ve been adding sashing to the Quilts of Valor Anniversary Blocks.


I finished up another hexagon after discussing the hexagon quilt that we didn’t see at the museum with my husband.


I got a quilt back from the quilter. I just have to add the binding and then this will be donated through Quilts of Valor.


And then there is this….


Huge Doctor Who fan. Love David Tennant. I haven’t done any embroidery since I was a kid but I guess I’m going to have to remember because these are hand embroidered quilt blocks!

  1. Love that blue sampler! Very pretty! My brother’s gf commissioned me to make her a TARDIS quilt, and was okay with the front being from cheater fabric from Spoonflower. The back is based on Stary Night, with a mini TARDIS flying through. So…needless to say I’m excited about the Dr-Who-along!

  2. Wow…….I love all your work today……..the beige block with the single red flower really makes a statement and the blue quilt is looking divine as is the Quilt of Valor!

  3. Those blue blocks are beautiful! I kind of hope they don’t get sashed and they are just joined up next to each other. It’s like a lovely undulating mosaic … reminds me of Gaudi.
