Although I do have two projects on the go at the moment I treat them as one; one upstairs, one downstairs.
The one coming together in my sewing room at the top of the house is being assembled by machine and is part of the Drunkard's Path Quiltalong on Flickr being hosted by Kristie and Kate. It's not too late if you want to join in now. So this is my Upstairs Quilt.
I went scrappy.
Full on scrappy really.
To the point where I am thinking that the best layout will be to make the Drunkard's Path with the circle pattern.
There are so many different permutations but I felt unless I had gone less scrappy and made a greater definition between dark and light, some of the patterns made would get lost.
My Downstairs Quilt is always some portable hand-piecing and at the moment is a BOM (Block of the Month) except in my case it isn't a BOM but a BAAO (Blocks All At Once). My sister lives a 10 minute drive from here so on her recent visit to me she brought me the whole 10 months worth of blocks.
So far I have hand pieced this...
...which might look familiar to you because I used the templates provided to make this...
I have plans to change the BOM slightly as there is an appliqued centre medallion which I want to swap for a Mariners Compass type block.
It is a slow but enjoyable progress.
And that's it. Quite restrained really isn't it?!
I am going to link this to Lee at Freshly Pieced who is celebrating a whole year of Wednesday WIPs.
Click on the link to see loads and loads and loads of WIPs...it's quite good therapy if, like me, you feel your WIPs are a little on the small size.
PS. To those of you who have left comments in the last 24 hours and I have not replied, there is an island-wide problem with our email server and no one is able to access their emails at the moment.
