W.i.P. Wednesday: Sunday Morning and String-X

This is the first time participating in W.i.P Wednesday, hosted from Freshly Pieced. I hope I'm doing it right.

I have two works in progress. Well, I have more than that, but I'll just show two today.


These first photos show strips and blocks for my version of Cheryl Arkison's "Sunday Morning" in the book Sunday Morning.


I've been a sewer for a long time so some of my fabrics are old. I try to use them in bits and pieces in the scrap quilts I make. But you know, those mushrooms might just have to come out of that block and stay out of this quilt!

The second quilt has been a work in progress for way too long, probably two years or more. I love piecing tops so much that I don't move on to quilting the tops. I'm devoting time every day so I can finish quilts instead of just finish tops. This is an adaptation of Bonnie Hunter's String-X quilt. I didn't paper piece mine and I changed the size.

Thanks for stopping by.

    I love that quilt. I like the narrower bars and the diversity of scraps. That's what I try to do in my quilts too. mix old and new fabrics while trying to keep within a certain style. Sometimes people use only 'trendy' fabrics in their 'scrappy' quilts and it kinda dampens down the scrappy aspect. Does that make sense? cheers, Claire W.

  6. I like your X quilt! I'm putting all my scraps into a small-widthed row, although I haven't figured out exactly what I want to do with them after that. Maybe something like yours!
