WiP Wednesday: The one with volume

It would seem to me that once again I have a few too many WiPs on the go. But, well, they are all making me happy so I am just rolling with it.

First up, is work on my Volume Quilt. This quilt is a goal for The Library Project and also a goal to use my scraps. So far so good. I have all of the red done and am starting on the pink....


Then there is the Giant Star. I made this top a few months back (I actually have two in the closet ready for quilting). Kona Ash and Nordica, this top is yummy. With my quilting issues lately I have been putting off quilting it. But I had a brainwave the other day and am going to run with it. I am going to take the top apart! What!? I am going to basically make it into four mini quilts, Quilt as I go on the quarters and then put it back together. Much more manageable!


And then, I swore to myself I would not do this, but I am weak and have a soft spot for Traingles. I am going to join Paula, The Sassy Quilter, for her Triangle Quilt Along. I really do have a soft spot for triangles, and after the debacle that was Bliangles, I would like to make triangles that actually have some points :)

First step in the QAL is to pick your fabric. I wanted a little inspiration so hit my Pinterest Color Board and found this - nice and springy given that we are being hit with a good old fashioned Nor'easter right now.


So, I started pulling the fabric bins and found this


Perfect right! This bundle is Denyse Schmidt Chicopee and I have been saving it for...well I don't know what! Seems like it will be perfect for Triangles.

So that's me for today. Lot's going on in the studio and outside the storm is raging. Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced, The Needle and Thread Network, Needle & Thread Thursday and with Paula for The Triangle QAL.

  2. Yay for that volume! And so excited to have you do the triangles as well. Are you using a ruler for cutting? As for how many WIPs I have: that list would take far too long to type LOL. It's still clear here but I'm expecting the snow to fly any moment

  3. I'm thinking about a triangle quilt too. I've seen a few lately and they are very appealing. The fabric you chose is so beautiful! I'm working on a commissioned quilt. The top is finished and the backing is cut, but not pieced. I tried the quilt-as-you-go (top quilted to batting) for the first time. It worked really well and was much easier to handle because I made it in sections, then stitched the quilted sections together. Now I've got to figure out how to stitch the top to the backing fabric without making a mess!
