WIPs Be Gone Week 7
Can you believe that? Week 7 of 2015! I can't. I'm happy to report some progress was made - well at least a little bit on 3 wips.
Another flower for Wip #3. I wish I'd had more of the green to fussy cut those hexagons around the bunny(they're more green than they look). It seemed appropriate to make him the center with those hearts around him. Happy Valentine's Day, Saturday.
My cranes (wip #4) got another border around them. This block is now ready for some batting and quilting and then piping and the back.
Every day I try to quilt some on WTBQ #1. The first two photos show the back with the fabric motifs and the ghost quilting from the front on the second two. I'm also putting a flower in each of the centers of some of the 6" blocks. Now to do the first border. It will have quite a bit more ghost quiting to fill in the white spaces. Please give me tips on how to take a photo showing the quilting on the back. As you can see from the one's I've posted - I hardly have a clue.
Lastly, and this isn't about quilting - lol - I've rediscovered frozen vegetables. No more boiling for me! I saute onions, peppers, garlic, waterchestnuts - or whatever combo/accent I want to add to the frozen veggies in a bit of oil or butter. Then I add them to the pan and saute for about seven minutes on low. They taste so good! Below I tried corn, green peppers and onions. It was a hit. I tried chopped collard greens and waterchestnuts - another hit (I put a 1/2 tsp of sugar to counteract the slight bitter taste of these greens). Then there is mixed vegetables with a bit of garlic and cilantro. Give it a try. Tell me of any other combos you come up with.
How are you doing on your wips? Would love to see - doesn't have to be a finish, but we'll admire those, too. Linky below - remember it doesn't have to be a new post, just one that shows your WIP. Ends Monday, midnight. Since I finished a flower I'm linking to Amanda's Finish it Friday, Lizzie's Free Motion Mavericks and Sarah's Can I get a Whoop, Whoop? Lots of eye candy there.
