WiP Wednesday - Actually on Time

It's a big day! I am actually on time for WiP Wednesday. Small victories are good. This week has been a productive one. I had my first finish and I am very close to completing Foreign Currency. Here is the top which I finished just before the holidays.

Quilting is done! I kept it to simple straight lines. Seriously, the Kona Solids in this quilt speak volumes all on their own. By the way this is my very first all solids quilt. I think I might be hooked. All that remains is the binding.

A shot of the backing fabric. I am glad I have some left over of this!

When I am quilting I often take a picture of my machine settings so that just in case I get sidetracked on another project (hey, it happens) I will know what I was doing. Do you do this? Or do you have other ways to keep track? 
Goals for the next week:
  • Finish Foreign Currency (of course)
  • Complete the Stash Bee February Blocks
  • Complete the January and February Sugar Block Club Blocks
  • Make a decision about my next project!
One last thing - here is my work partner. The Orange Cat demands little, just the occasional petting and some laser beam chasing at key points during the day. Such a handsome man.

I am linking up today at Freshly Pieced

Thanks for stopping by


  1. Love your quilt! Great choice of colors!! Your cute work partner looks satisfied too!

  2. Thanks Kitty. Orangie just wishes he could be ON the quilt :)

  3. I love the colors in your quilt! That is interesting that your machine shows your foot.

    I can't get this verification thing to verify me for some reason... I've never had a problem before. So this is going to show up as anon :(

    1. Or it worked. LOL.

    2. It worked! Thanks for your comments :) Funny thing about the foot picture on my quilt, it is not the right foot!

  4. I really LOVE that top- the solids are wonderful!!

  5. Your solids quilt looks fabulous--the colors are so strong and vibrant! You'll feel very proud of yourself once it's finished, and rightly so. Say hello to your little orange cat for me--I, too, have an orange cat who likes to join me in the studio.

  6. Wonderful. I have seen some fabulous solids quilts today and really do feel inspired to abandon the patterns for my next quilt. Thanks.

  7. Thanks all. I for sure am going to do more solid quilts. I was afraid, but I am not sure why. Now that I see other quilts done solely in solids, I think they are beautiful! I have to choose my next project this week, so another solid one it is!

  8. Wow!! That quilt is gorgeous! I have never done an all solids quilt but you might have just inspired me to try it.

  9. Wow!!! Love the colors and design!!! Amazing work!

  10. Awesome quilt! I love the colors. They're so rich! Definitely a good choice on the minimal quilting.

  11. FANTASTIC! I love the colors, the design, the quilting.
