WIP Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

What is a week without starting a NEW project when you have a dozen or more projects that are still in progress! I apparently have a problem, LOL!

Last weekend I did something brand new to me!  I took a sewing workshop! The Fredericksburg Modern Quilt Guild had Karie from Two Kwik Quilters for a full day workshop + trunk show ( amazing quilts).

The class presented was for her wonderfully EASY Swirling Star pattern that can be found on Quilter's Exchange  .

And it is my new WIP!

There is a fun #100dayproject Challenge on Instagram that started when the kids were on Spring Break so I did not start because:

1. There was not a project that I was working on that I wanted to make 100 of when it started.
2. The kids were home AND we had a birthday happening.
3. I have SO MANY things that I really should be doing other than starting a NEW project.

Then I took the class and well...

These are easy, fun, pretty and Karie kinda pushed me...LOL!

We were talking about how it had started and then I may have jokingly said, "I can make 100 stars!"

I was joking but she took me seriously.  That is how the best projects happen!

So the blocks began ( as well as a big mess!)...


So here I am with now 8/100 completed ( YAY ME!)

I am using a variety of fabrics including Alison Glass for Andover, Moda, Robert Kaufman solids and whatever else is in my sewing MASH ( massive stash).

The blocks are paper pieced making those perfect points ( you know you LOVE perfect points!).

I am using Aurifil 50wt in whatever color happens to be on my sewing machine.  The 50wt/2ply is very thin which I find is especially necessary when there is the possibility of bulkier seams. The 50 wt helps to achieve a flatter seams & block. Flat seams are EVERY quilter's DREAM!

I will have OH SO MANY more of these blocks since the commitment to 100 has been made!

I hope you have had a fabulous sewing week and have maybe caught up on some old WIP's BEFORE starting new ones 😉

I like the star blocks and the tiny one hidding in 2nd picture. Are they paper pieced? Great job!

Thank you Anorina! I hope so! The assembly of the top will take me forever..LOL!

I love these! I would try the 100 blocks of these, too, if I didn't have so many WIPs already, also.
