WIP Wednesday #2

New projects:

Bridesmaid clutches
My friends are getting married this Saturday and I am in the process of making orange clutches for all the bridesmaids (myself included). Unfortunately I haven't taken any photos of my progress yet, but this is one of the fabric and her shower invitation. We had the hardest time finding anything in orange, and then one day I stumbled across this suede upholstery fabric in the clearance section at Joann's. Sweet! I'm just going to turn the wrong side out, which has a shiny sateen sort of finish. Brilliant, I know :P

Ongoing projects:

Warm Cool Quilt-Along
HSTs are done, and I've spent a good deal of time moving them all around to get the right look. I only used 8 prints, and for some reason (I think I thought it would give it more variance) I made two different types of HSTs from each print. It just ended up making my life difficult when it came time to do the layout, because trying to find a pattern to repeat was just too much for my brain to handle.

I wanted to tweak the layout just a smidge and ended up going with this one. Now that I've been looking at these pics for a few days , I may decide to go with something closer to the first pic. I dunno yet...

Kaleidoscope Quilt-Along
Fabric picked, just waiting on cutting instructions which should be posted here tomorrow!

On hold:
Engelbreit Quilt

I'm calling it that because it reminds me of the illustrator Mary Engelbreit. My mom is a fan and has had illustrated magnets on the fridge for years. I started this one a while back and haven't made any progress for a while. I have all the blocks finished (80 total, 20 shown) and will eventually get around to finishing it.

That's all for now! I'm hanging up my lab coat and heading home on my bike. That's right, I rode my bike to work today! Hopefully I'll be able to keep this up...


  1. Your warm cool quilt along is just stunning. I'm in love with it. So vibrant and fun. Well done!!

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has trouble with quilts that allow you to move the design around. Too many choices! Love your colors though!

  3. I wish I had enough fabric to do the warm/cool QAL. Yours are so bright and vibrant and lovely. After looking through your other posts I realized you had the crazy awesome vintage linens stash. So so jealous!

  4. Wow! Your w/c is very cool :)

  5. I love playing with hsts of different values, both your layouts are wonderful.

  6. Hey Krista! Great clutches, can't wait to see the finished product.

    Hope you end up quilting along...we just got some great prizes from sponsors for those who join! Have a good one :)

    PS I noticed you're a no-reply blogger, so I'm unable to respond to you via email. You should look into changing it!


I love hearing from you, thanks for stopping by!
