w.i.p. s

It's been almost two weeks since my machine broke and still no phone call from the repair guy, grrr! So, to feel sort of productive, I decided to take inventory of my wips and pet them a little.


I love, love, love these nine patch blocks. I'm using Comma by Zen Chic (adore this line of fabric) in combination with different low volume prints. I wanted to turn them into a mini for our bedroom wall but now I'm thinking of adding blue to the mix and making enough blocks for a lap sized quilt.


Another project using some more Comma (can you tell I really like this fabric?), is this improv log cabin quilt. This quilt will be 36" x 36" square, and I'm making it as part of log cabin challenge in our Naperville Modern Quilt Guild.


And then there's this vintage tapestry of sorts my mom sent me. I'm thinking of adding a fabric border and turning it into a wall hanging. Aren't this pattern as well as colors so pretty?

Of course, I have quite a few smaller projects calling my name too, but these three are the main ones and I hope to get to them asap. Fingers crossed that my machine will be "healthy" soon.

Wishing you all a very lovely day. Svetlana

  2. Still no machine? So sad! Your wips are lovely though. Those Comma 9-patches are simple and perfect.

  4. I love the Comma line as well. I scored a scrap bag on etsy from the fabric designer, probably scraps she used to make the quilts for her patterns. So cool. They are kind of random sizes and maybe nine-patches or improv blocks would be the thing. Your projects are really inspiring me. Hope your machine is back to normal health soon!

  10. Oh man, I'd go nuts if I couldn't use my machine. This makes me rethink selling off my old one when I get a new one.

    I really like your improv log cabins. I like the low volume fabrics. I'd like to try this some day.

    I hope you get your sewing machine fixed soon. It must be frustrating not even hearing back from the repair person.

  16. I am WAY behind in blog posts - I'm so sorry you have been without a machine for two weeks! I'd be pulling my hair out :)

    Love the Comma blocks - I think this is one of my all time favorite lines! I have some fat eighths but haven't completely decided how to use them yet.
