2017's First WIPs Be Gone

See this bag:
 It was stuffed with fabric scraps from St. Anne's.  I brought it home and challenged myself to make quilt tops from it for our workshop.  I made three:
 The green monochromatic that I sewed on my treadle machine.
 The word quilt using letter squares from the June Parish Festival (colored by children).
And the really way out one with blocks that had been donated to us (the ones with the buildings).  It includes a Chinese garden, high rise apartments, urban forest, a Chinese restaurant inspired by the gardens, suburbs and aviation sightings in the sky. I started this last one Dec 27th, but just finished it  earlier in the week.  Below is what is left in the bag - not enough to make another top. But then maybe I can make a center and then add borders from some other bag - hmmm.


Three WIPs ready to be sandwiched, tied and donated.  What have you been up to?  Leave me a comment and I'll come by to see.

  11. You are so good. I always mean to ask about St Anne's. About 45 years ago my HS girlfriend was sent to St Anne's Maternity Home to have her baby who her mom hoped she would surrender for adoption. She did not and he is my godson. Is this the same?

  13. What fun! Those are great and colorful. I haven't been sewing a lot this week, though I did put up a list of some WISPs for this year - not finishes, necessarily, but moving them along a bit.
