Tag Archives: Wayward Transparency Quilt Along

WIP Week

It’s been WIP week around here. I’m trying to get caught up with stitching on some of the QALs I’ve joined. There are no progress pictures to show you, though, other than stacks of blocks and strips of material.

Let me show you my Wayward Transparency top and my Magnolia Mysteries top. I haven’t posted them since I finished them.

Wayward Transparency

WIP Week - My version of the Wayward Transparency QAL named "Solar Flare" - piecefulthoughts.com 2018

I’ve named this quilt Solar Flare. It is probably the most intensely colored quilt I’ve ever made, and I love it. The Kona fabrics are Chinese Red, Flame Orange, and Orange.

I found backing fabric a week ago when we went up to the cabin. When I saw it, I knew it would be just right to fit the colors and the name of the quilt.

I haven’t decided if I’ll quilt this myself or have Connie work her magic on it.

Magnolia Mystery Quilt

WIP Week - Magnolia Mystery Quilt, my version - piecefulthoughts.com 2018

This was my first mystery quilt, and I found it interesting to be stitching and not knowing what it was going to look like. I am very happy with the quilt. I like the unusual layout with the negative space. It will be fun to see what Connie does with it.

Although the background fabric for this quilt looks white, is actually a low volume check in gray. It’s a Jen Kingwell print.

Linking up today with Quilt Fabrication and Sew Fresh Quilts.


Quilt Along Catchup

There was not much sewing in my quilt room this weekend. There were other activities that took my time. However, I did have some time to get some sewing done on my Wayward Transparency quilt for Quilting Jetgirl’s Quilt Along. It’s been fun seeing what others are getting done, and now it’s time for me to get caught up!

This quilt along is working with color value. We were encouraged to choose colors, then, according to value. I chose to go with one of the suggestions on Quilting Jetgirl’s posts, because I liked the colors of the fabrics. They are bold colors — does that surprise you?

I’m a little behind on my sewing for this month’s step, but I should be able to get caught up. Here’s what I got done this weekend.

I am looking forward to finishing this top because I like how the colors play together! I have named it Solar Flare, because that is what kept coming to mind as I stitched this part together.

Pumpkin Update

I didn’t want you to think I’ve left the pineapples behind. I’m happy to find that if I add two more pineapples, one to each row, it will fit just right in the wall unit space!  That will leave me with two orphan pineapple blocks, and I think I know what I’m going to do with them too.

I have to get a few supplies for the quilting, and then I should be ready to get started with the quilting. I’ll post more about it soon!

Tomorrow and Wednesday I’ll be spending some time with my brother and sister-in-law, and I get to help her at her shop. I enjoy spending time with them, and the shop is an added plus! I may not get a post done for Wednesday, but I’ll be back on Friday!

Happy stitching!
