WIP Wednesday - Making Progress

It's that time again! WIP Wednesday is here and I have a few things to report.

MADE MAJOR PROGRESS ON....

The DQS10 quilt. Now all of the blocks have been stitched in the ditch all around, four of the nine are quilted, one of nine is marked and I have a vague plan for the others.

I kept the quilting pretty simple and conservative, and used my walking foot. Mainly because I terrified of mucking the whole thing up by getting too fancy with the free motion. So far, so good!


MADE SOME PROGRESS ON...

A delinquent Bee block, and a test for one of the two QAL (Quilt-Along)s I joined.

MADE NO PROGRESS ON....

The New Wave quilt (other than making a block that will be incorporated into the backing) and everything else on my WIP and WIMM lists over there on the right hand side.

BUT THAT SURE DIDN'T STOP ME FROM ADDING THE FOLLOWING PROJECTS TO THE LIST...

Robert Kaufman-sponsored Challenge for the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild. This one deserves its own post - stay tuned!

See what everyone else is up to this Wednesday over at Lee's! It's a great link-up. Seriously. Go. Now.
