WIP Wednesday – Round 8

Again, I had a pretty unproductive week in the ‘non-crafting’ world.  On the other hand I did lots of fun things with my kiddo’s and got some much needed rest. 

the Bloom Quilt:

Bloom Quilt - WIP

I am done making yoyo’s! 
Size of yo-yo's Quanity Made Goal % Complete
1 (largest) 17 18 94%
2 50 54 93%
3 60 48 125%
4 63 48 131%
5 65 64 102%
6 (smallest) 45 40 113%
TOTAL 300 272 110%
That’s right – 300 yo’yo’s later and now it’s time to focus on sewing them onto the actual quilt!  Bloom Quilt - WIPThere will be no more pictures of ‘loose’ yoyo’s scattered on the quilt – I will just show you pictures as I continue to attach them to the piece and the layering grows into a beautiful BLOOMing Garden.  

The larger ones I used my free motion quilt to stitch them on – it didn’t work very well.  So, now I’m ‘tacking’ them on using the zig-zag stitch with my feed dogs down.  I do this in approximately 4 to 5 spots on the yoyo.  This seems to be working much better…

Fabric Rosette’s

Rosette'sI’ve been wanting to try to figure out how to make these fun fabric flowers for awhile now.  With the gorgeous weather today I brought my supplies to my deck bench, kept an eye on the girls as the chalked and biked on our driveway, and made my very first rosettes.  I used a gorgeous deep, chocolate brown interior design fabric that has an iridescent glow in certain lights and some neat texture from thread art on the fabric.  I really like the end look – now I just have to figure out what I’m going to do with them!

Off Season Project QUILTING Challenge – It’s All in Your Initials

Oh…and my idea is not complicated..if I can get the ‘base’ of it done in time I should be able to finish it baby or no baby…
