WIP Wednesday

Finally working on my QuiltCon Michael Miller fabric challenge!  I am so not a fan of pastels, so it is definitely a challenge for me.  Every time I cut something out and put it on my design wall I'm like, "yuck".  My husband has been really encouraging though, and everyone on IG (@quiltsnfeathers) are like my cheerleaders to keep going!


Transfered my design to the back of some wrapping paper, then paper pieced those geese.  The stuff above the geese is ready for foundation piecing using freezer paper.

Also made the center of a Museum Medallion, machine pieced prototype (it is a hand-piecing pattern that I will eventually review here).  It turned out nice enough to turn into a mini quilt for the #igminiswap, so I will quilt it up some time next month...

November is SO crazy busy for me, I doubt I will be blogging much.  If you're on IG, you can follow me there to see lots of progress photos!

  1. I agree, pastels are not my thing. I started working on mine too and hope to have it fully pieced by the weekend. That dark grey is awesome!

  2. The more you get done with the pastels, the more I am liking it, Renee. The dark background really helps bring out their colors. Sticking with all light colors just seems too washed out. :)

  3. Pastels not my thing either- and I know how tough it can be to work on something where the color doesn't please you :-( It is looking great so far- good luck!

  4. Solid pastels are hard to work with for me, too. But your curvy line of flying geese looks great! Looking foward to seeing what you will do. That rainbow mini quilt looks good, too.

  7. I love the movement in that curving line of geese. And your IG mini swap quilt looks amazing. Too bad I'm not in that group :)

  8. Your mini is looking great! I'm not really getting your pastel design so I'll just wait patiently until you quilt the heck out of it :)
