W.i.P. Wednesday: Heading For the Finish Line

With school wrapping up I've been frantically trying to wrap up all the loose ends before my schedule gets really crazy.  This week's focus has been quilting, quilting, quilting.  Inspired by my Sleeping Porch pillow finish I also quilted the coordinating triangle quilt.  The binding is on but I haven't quite finished tacking it down...  good news, road trips ahead.

With that quilted I moved on to basting the next flimsy in my stack.  Things were going great until I ran out of safety pins.  Now that my LQS has closed it's not just a quick trip across town to get more.  After weighing my options I decided the fastest solution was to quilt something already basted.  I grabbed my Blue Plate Special that I basted at Laurena's Longarm and started quilting down the plates.  Of course once I started I couldn't stop even though I had enough pins...  next step is to add the centers and hand quilt around the plates, another grab and go project that should keep me busy for a loooong time.

And with a fully basted quilt there's more quilting to be done...

In these last precious days I'm hoping to get more of my neglected La Pass prepped so I can still stay busy when I can't get in to my sewing studio.  What's your plan for sewing this summer?

  2. I had to do the same thing---quilt enough of something to have enough spare pins to complete basting the top I just finished. If I quilted everything I have basted, I'll probably have more pins than I'd know what to do with.

  3. Curious about your last picture re: La Pass. I am venturing into EPP with Lucy Boston and finding fussy cutting to get those very cool patterns a bit tricky. Very interesting....
