WIP Wednesday #7

Hi there! I made some progress this week :D

Ongoing Projects:
Summer Sampler Series QAL - I have 6 finsihed blocks but am still behind! I typically get distracted while sewing, taking a two hour project and turning it into six. BUT, last night I hunkered down and only stopped to change loads of laundry. Here's the result! The pics are bad because I didn't finish until after midnight and the lighting in my house is awful. Sorry! But you get the general idea.

I made some room on my design wall so I could put them next to each other to see what fabrics I should be using next. This purple background print almost looks pink from far away, which isn't so great. When I add it to future blocks it'll work but for now it's a bit out of place.

Kaleidoscope QAL - I've sewed a few more blocks together and took this good better quality close up pic when the sun was shining through the windows yesterday. This quilt is gonna take me a while. If you wanna see some pretty ones look at the gallery of finishes over on Elizabeth's blog.

Punctuation Baby Quilt - Started quilting but stopped to ponder whether to keep going or unpick and start over. More on that here.

New Project:1930's prints mini HSTs - uh, this was a deversion and I don't really have a plan for them yet, lol. This layout won't be it, though, considering the peachy prints don't have as much contrast as the other three colors. Again, horrible awful lighting + iphone camera = not good pictures. I did the best I can!

 On Hold:
Warm Cool QAL -  No progress. For some reason I get right close to finishing things and then let them sit for a while. Check out the link-up to see some gorgeous finished warm cool quilts!
