WIPs Be Gone Week 13

A strange week - think depression is getting to me. Not very productive. The two below are not going on my WIP list because I have a long way to go with them. As to the list, I"m auditioning various fabrics for the floater border between the Bird of Paradise background and the last border.  I finished prepping  the main part of BBWQ Block 5. I think I mislead a few of you when you looked at the block in the Applique Tuesday post.  Only the inner border and about 1/8th of the outer seams were turned over the freezer paper.
It is now fully prepped. Just have to make the four buds that go in the corner and I can set it on the background 16" square of muslin.  As for #1, I tweaked the pattern on this one, also.  Just seemed too heavy for me as it was given.

I also worked on part one of the Katja's QAL Rosette #1. I'm not happy with this, but I'm going to go with my choices and see how it develops:
In day light the center does not stand out so much.  I think I'll incorporate some teal, and maybe some pink, in the next round. I'll see. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate.  I just may make a yellow center and try again - sigh. Color combos are hard for me.

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 a WIP.  Ends Monday, midnight.  I'm linking to Sarah's Can I get a Whoop, Whoop? and Kelly's Needle and Thread ThursdaysLots of eye candy there.  


  1. which pattern in the book are you using? I am using the La Passacaglia -- maybe it is too much red you are using and not enough variation?

  2. Depressed: Or maybe, just the winter blues! Winter has held on for a long while for you. I struggle with color combinations too....sometimes, I walk away and coming back with new eyes helps. Hang in there.

  3. Hope you're feeling better soon Angie. Love your rosette, it's definitely bright and cheery! Those fussy cuts are wonderful.

  4. Keep going--I think your rosette is looking great!

  5. Fabric selection is the most challenging part of The New Hexagon Millefiori QAL! I like what you've done so far!

  6. Love your applique. Feel better my friend.

  7. A little sunshine before noon and heat will be good and so is your work. Teal or yellow could work.
    Thank you for your posts.

  8. Depression is so terrible, I struggle daily. But I got a lamp that mimics sunlight and it seems to help. It's also perfect for back light for paper piecing! LOL


Thank you for stopping by. It's always nice to hear from you. I try to reply to each and every one of you, but sometimes life gets in the way. I hope you understand. Blessings.
