WIP Wednesday

Last week, I didn’t do a WIP Wednesday post because … well … I hadn’t made any progress on anything for most of the week. I’d made a couple squares on the quilt I’m making for my friend Heather, but nothing really worthy of a blog post or photos. This week, however, I do have something to show you.

Labor Day weekend was much busier than I had anticipated, so I didn’t get much done on the quilt on Saturday or Sunday. But I set aside Monday to work on the quilt, and quilt I did. In fact, I got all of the squares made! This means that I need to dye a backing for the quilt, so I need to make a decision on that as well. Green seems the obvious choice, but I’m not really sure that’s the direction I want to go. I was thinking sky blue, maybe. I’ll decide today so I can get it going, because I’d really like to be in a position to sandwich this weekend and get started on the quilting part. But enough talking for today. Here are a couple of pictures to show you the progress of the quilt. 🙂

 

It looks a bit like a skeleton doesn’t it?

I do still need to go back and fix the prototype squares I made first, because they were put together out of order. But once that’s done, I can start sewing the quilt top together. Hopefully the entire top will be put together by this weekend.

The nine-patches will act as setting squares.

The correct way for the squares to be put together!
