WIP Wednesday

Blogging more regularly is definitely at the top of my list of things I want to work on. So here is my official WIP Wednesday post as it's now 12:00 am EST. :)

So I've been working on my mini Diabolical Jane and I finished cutting all of the fabric for the front this weekend and started putting together the panels.

I started sewing together the panels and have the bottom panel done completely with the one left portion of the row attached.

I also started working on my Sunnyside HST quilt, but decided to rip apart the one block I actually had done and trim the HSTs down by about 1/4". I went to trim more of the HSTs and several of them were just too small to trim to 4.5" square. I also decided that I was going to make all the same block instead of following the Layer Cake Sampler QAL.

And finally, here's the baby quilt version of my DCMQG 2016 QAL. I decided to put it up on my design wall to see how it's coming along and where the gaps still are. The next block will fill in a good portion of that large gap at the top right.

DCMQG 2016 QAL - Block 20

Block 20

We are moving on to wonky (improv) stars. Both 3x3 grid and 5x5 grid. No specific inspiration for these. I'll show you how I created my layout and encourage you to create your own, otherwise you can just follow my cutting instructions.

Unf***ing my Life

Summer hiatus is just about over. I've been doing my best to turn over a new leaf as far as decluttering and cleaning is concerned. I've been reading What's a Disorganized Person to Do? by Stacey Platt. I've also been doing better about using my Quilt Planner and various other tools to keep on track with things. Next up, keeping a list of blog posts I owe you guys. By the way, I have Block 20 for the QAL all ready to go, I just need to write it up for Friday. So check back around noon EST on Friday for that.

As back story, I used to have my very own craft room (when we didn't have guests, which was most of the time). So this is what it used to look like:
