WIP Wednesday

The quilting marathon continues.
I am working on a quilt that's going to be featured in a magazine, so regrettably I can't show you more than a glimpse.  I'm so frustrated as I'm dying to share it with you!  (You can see another sneak peak here )
Here it is, a week ago, ironed and ready for basting and quilting. 
Progress has been a little slower than I would like, due to presents needing to be purchased and wrapped, in readiness for early Christmas celebrations this weekend before we go on our travels.  
I have loved every minute of machine quilting this quilt; it's a big quilt with a gentile personality and with every stitch I feel it's a step closer to being complete.   
Then I'm going to face a major problem.  As you can see, my quilt features white.  And my garden currently features rain.  And mud.  In large quantities.  The sky is grey.  I mean dark grey.  Pretty much all the time.  So it's not an ideal backdrop for a summer quilt.  I am just going to have to get creative with this one indoors.  Either that or pray for sunshine! 
Thank you so much for stopping by.

  1. What pretty colours and fabrics, Sarah - you can just tell this is going to be a beauty :)

  2. How exciting for you! And, it looks like a quilt worthy of print even with just a peek.

  3. Pretty fabrics! Congratulation on having a project in a magazine, that is really exciting.

  4. Oh I'm so excited to see this quilt Sarah! I love the purple and white dots - it looks very similar to Early Birds 'Poka Dot' by Jane Sassaman that I used in my Sparkle Plenty Quilt?

  5. How exciting to be in a magazine! The quilt sneak peek looks lovely, I am eager to see more! Too bad about all the rain. It's a shame the quilt can't go on holiday with you :)
