WIP Wednesday ~ 6/5/2013 :: Hope Valley Twister Top, Cutting Mats and a Winner

I got my Hope Valley Twister blocks put together! I went with making a wall hanging. I think I'll revisit the pattern and make a bigger quilt sometime. I love the look of this block. I started putting the whole blocks together using a y-seam and quickly decided, since there were so few blocks, to take them apart (in half) and sew them together in rows. Much better :)

I feel like my WIP list is manageable now. I have 3 flimsies. I have my on-going hexies and Grandmother's Flower Garden. So comparing my huge list from last year. I've either finished, changed or used most of those WIPs. I think I'm in good shape and can maybe even start a new quilt!

In other exciting news, I got a new rotary cutting mat yesterday. Okay, maybe that's only exciting for a quilter. I really needed one. My old one was in sad shape. Michaels had a 50% off coupon so I used it for my mat. Let me tell ya how nice it was to trim up my Twister top on the new one...it was nice.

And last but not least the winner of Lori Holt's Bake Sale Rolie Polie from Fat Quarter Shop is Tracy! Congratulations Tracy and thank you Fat Quarter Shop!!

That looks great, Erin! Your list is, indeed, diminishing! I think mine only grows. haha. Working on finishing, but I always see something new that I want to do. YIKES!

Oh how I love Hope Valley, though I have never used it unfortunately. Your little quilt looks great, and yay for a new cutting mat. I bought a new one last year sometime and I love it.

The twister quilt looks great. I thought my mat was bad but it looks like I have a few miles to go yet! I just posted a birdie quilt inspired by yours - thanks for all the inspiration.

Oh, are we supposed to count our WIPs? I hope not! I don't want to know!

My cutting mat is very sad too. I'm waiting for a coupon too.

Beth said...

I like how you refer to them as "flimsies!" And great idea to sew together the twister blocks in rows - I'm excited to see that one when you finish!

Svetlana said...
