WIP Wednesday the Second

Last night I wanted to start sewing the sashing for the blocks of my Stained quilt; I have strips cut from the remnant of Kona black I happened to have (I'll probably have to buy more to finish between the blocks).

23 strips WOF
I pulled out my sewing machine, plugged it in and opened the little attachment case where my bobbins are stored. I only have 4... and they all have bits of other colors left on them at the moment. It seems wasteful to just unravel one, so that's another thing I need to buy.

red, dark blue, light blue and white
Since the first quarter of Rhonda's Finish Along is almost over, I pulled out the pieces for my purple haze quilt and trimmed them all. I started with 5" charm squares cut from yardage, but when I sewed them back together I had some trouble keeping accurate 1/4" seams, especially considering that flannel is prone to more stretching than the typical quilter's cotton.

I think chances are slim that I will finish this quilt by the end of the month as I had set out for myself in Jan, but at least I've made a bit of progress! And I've got one finish in for this quarter anyway.



No Progress:
Purse for me

Currently in progress - 3 (or 7 if you count the things I have fabric piled for and/ or a few squares cut and/or the pattern cut)


  1. Oh yes buy yourself lots more can never have too many :0). I couldn't imagine what I was looking at over at WIP Wed so I had to come look :0).

    Happy Sewing

  2. I have the same problem not wanting to unravel bobbins!

  3. Looking forward to seeing your Stained Quilt! Just to let you know I'm passing on the bloggy love and have just nominated you for a Liebster:-)
