WIP Wednesday - Quiltcon Projects

I am back at home after Quiltcon, wishing there was a way that I could somehow catch up on some sleep.  I don't know what project to start working on first, since I have a few new WIPs to choose from.

My first class was the Gee's Bend workshop.  I used some of my old shirts and a white shirt from my dad.  I cut strips of fabric from the shirts and sewed any pieces that fit together.

Next up was Bias Strip Curves with Sherri Lynn Wood.   Since we shared fabric strips, I used colors that I normally don't work with such as yellow.  These pieces got big quite fast.  I have 4 of these petal shapes completed and I have no idea yet how this project will turn out.

Also with Sherri Lynn Wood, I attended the Doodling workshop.  I chose to start working with the square shape and then moved on to triangles.  Some shapes are not quite triangles, and that's OK with me.

Hoping to pick a project I can work on during the #whippercraftnight party on Instagram on Feb 26th.

Linking today to WIP Wednesday.


  1. Beautiful stuff, I wish I'd been at Quiltcon! The "doodling" class ended out with such interesting stuff, I'm looking forward to reading Sherri Lynn Wood's book.

  2. It looks like you had a lot of fun and have some great projects to choose from. I'm sure whichever one you choose will turn out great!

  3. All these projects look great! I really like the Gee's Bend ideas & your colour combo here! Linda

  4. Ohh, I'm supppper jealous of your SLW workshops. I love those bias curves. Beautiful work!

  5. It's so much fun to see all the different sensibilities, isn't it - quite inspiring, eh?

  6. So many fun things! I love the way your doodling looks!
