W.I.P. Wednesday {8.7.13}

Okay, so I know that last week I told you all I was hoping to get caught up on my Lucky Stars BOM blocks, well I did get one more finished.

This one came with A LOT of grumbling, seam ripping, etc.ย  Ugh, we were certainly not friends at one point!ย  Happily I did not let it beat me ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  It is far from perfect, but as I like to say…done is good!

So, after I finished the June block, I had to switch gears and work on some simple patchwork.ย  I have cut and began piecing a special request quilt using just the two fabrics you see below.ย  I’m hoping it turns out clean and crisp.

I’m squeezing in the piecing on this one in between some other projects that have deadlines and are “secret” at the moment.ย  I will have a finish to share with you later on this week though ๐Ÿ™‚

Now I want to know, do any of you get frustrated on a project like me and have to “step away” for a bit before you can finish it up?

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. I do! Although sometimes it is more than for ‘just a bit’ that I step away from something, but when I come back to it a week, month or more later, I scratch my head and wonder why I set it aside because it only took a bit to finish up. I have also learned that if it is getting later in the evening and I start having issues with thread or what have you, that it is best to just walk away at that point and come back on a new day and start up again and everything works just fine.

    I really like your Luck Stars blocks and the fabrics you have chosen for them. I also can’t wait to see what you are doing with your two fabrics in the photo.

  2. i love that star! your fabric choices are perfect. i “step away” from projects all the time. sometimes for months or even years. i’m confident that i’ll go back to them eventually. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. The block turned out great so I’d say you finally won that battle. This week again I struggled with procrastination but not because of frustration. I find that if I get to something that intimidates me a little I put it off. But, usually when I finally get around to it I wonder why I ever waited because it’s never as hard as I think it will be. Love the design and fabrics you chose for these blocks. I think the blue and white quilt will be clean and fresh looking. I love two-color quilts. I’ll have to make one sometime. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Wow! All that work was worth it because it looks fantastic. It looks like you aligned that navy and white fabric on the outside of the star points on purpose.

    Love love love your hydrangea fabric. I have some in a deep purple and it hurts every time I cut into it, but it is so yummy!
