WIP Wednesday


I like the design showing up on the back
 Still more quilting on my gumdrops quilt. I love doing the small stippling, not loving doing the continuous curves. You'd think it would be easy to make gentle curves following the squares, and it's not bad going one way, but I suck at doing it from left to right or vice versa. By the time the quilt is done I hope to have it down pat. If not, the next time I'm marking the curves! I think I'm spending more time on quilting this quilt than I did on piecing it! It's been a lot of fun though.

I will be posting Part 2 of Sewing Room Organization on the weekend. The drawers are almost finished. I've used 25 of the Oil of Olay display boxes so far. I'm glad I took half a cart full!Thanks for all the positive comments on my fat quarter storage/hoarding problem. I guess I'm not alone!

 I am linking up for WIP Wednesday at the Needle and Thread Network and also at Freshly Pieced. If you have a moment, drop by and see some of the beautiful works in progress in blogland!

Happy Stitching

the quilting looks great on the backside - I always like checking out there. Great job with your little stipple - that's a hard one for me, need more practice with it. I bet you see a huge improvement in your continuous curves by the time your done the quilt - all it takes is practice!

Lovely work. I always check out the back of a quilt...just nosy I guess:)

Your quilting looks great and I find going one way more difficult too , guess our brains just need to adjust . Great work.

That kind of continuous line quilting is the first machine quilting I learned, many many years ago and I still use it for many of my quilts now! I love when organizing things doesn't cost a fortune by buying specialized cartons, Free is the BEST!

It looks like you're almost finished, Corina - it looks great! I wouldn't have thought of checking out the back - it never occurred to me to do so, LOL!

I really like how the back looks...well, I like it on the front too but it shows up so well on the back.

Lovely quilting, and the kind I can get lost in. Hang in there for the continuous curves, they transform mundane triangles into something much fancier!
