Wednesday WIP






I have to admit there hasn't been a lot of sewing coming out of my sewing room lately.  However I have had a couple of days where I have not been rostered to work, and because it is wet and windy outside, today seemed like the perfect time to clean up my sewing room and use up a few scraps from my never decreasing scrap baskets. The result - some more blocks for my scrappy sampler quilt, and a sewing room that looks just as messy as when I started. The little triangle sugar loaf blocks are probably my favourite from today's effort. and the pattern is available here.  Now I am wondering just how many blocks I need, how big I want this quilt to end up and whether I start making lots of low volume filler blocks and strips  and start trying to piece it altogether.

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  2. It all looks fantastic and I love the triangles in the third picture down - not sure if those are the sugar loaf ones or not - they are so pretty! Hope that you can work it all out so that you are happy. xx

  6. I find that my summer sewing time is quite random, and as with you, sometimes it's about cleaning and oraganizing and getting ready to sew. I suppose that you can't really work on scrappy blocks without making a big mess... it's just the nature of it. Wet and windy here too, but I guess it is winter with you and not "summer" like it is here?

    I really love the randomness of this quilt, and am excited to see the direction you take this!
