WIP Wednesday

Hello there, friends! I am delighted to report that I managed to get in some quality sewing time at another of Krista's day retreats!

Great Progress Was Made On....

The memory quilt! It's been all quilted, the appliqu├ęs are attached, and it's ready to be bound. Tonight? Perhaps! Here's a sneak peek of some of the quilting motifs I FMQd:

My last report about this quilt was also after a QBTB! It's my retreat quilt!

I also made August's block for Brioni in Stash Trad over the course of last week:

Lone Starburst for Brioni
Foundation paper piecing pattern templates found here.

Not going to lie - this block was time-consuming! But the effects are marvelous. Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

Also Worked On...

Backing and basting some charity quilt tops. One is basted, the other is about to be. Exciting!

  1. Looks great Felicity. The quilting motifs are darling, especially those little leaves.

  2. I just love your FMQing, wow!
    And your star block is stunning!

  3. I love the August block...it would make a lovely medallion. I like paper piecing, but it is time consuming... Good luck on your WIP's

  4. Oh, your star is gorgeous! Well done. Enjoy your last week of summer before school starts again...

  5. Your fmq is marvelous! And I do love the look of that block.

  6. I love all the work you did on the 'memory quilt'! Great job on the star. I managed to make mine on Monday. I might have said a bad word.

  7. Felicity..your quilting looks amazing! That variegated thread makes it so much more special!!!

  8. That's a gorgeous block. Thanks for sharing the templates.

  9. Good quilting and luv that star!

  10. I use those little free motion leaves quite often on my quilts, they translate to hearts on child size quilts, too That start still amazes me..

  11. Must feel nice to have the memory quilt all quilted! I look forward to seeing the appliques. The star block is stunning!

  12. Your quilting is great, and thanks for the link to the block instruction (since I need another pattern on my wish-I-had-the-time list :-) )
