WIP (Work in Progress) Wednesday

 (Click on the pic for closeup)
 I've been working on these quilt blocks for awhile. I've loved this "Road to California" quilt pattern for a long time and eventually it will be a queen size quilt.  Thought I would put it up on my wall to see how it's going.  Now that I have it up and edited the pic, I know I'm going to change it a bit.  I just love this colorway, so I have a vision and will get there with it eventually. 

 And, I made MORE progress on my Loon on the Lake wall hanging this week.  I've quilted the trees, the main water and the clouds.  Still more to quilt.

 I took time out to try the 10-minute table runner on youtube.  It was fun, fun!

WIP (Work In Progress) WEDNESDAY

Loon on the Lake~

So I chose Labor Day to get out a UFO (Unfinished Object) that has been on my design wall 3-4 YEARS.  Oy!  I'm ashamed to admit that.  It's just that it never took up that much room and it always looked nice there.  I always knew exactly how I wanted to quilt my Loon on the Lake project, I just put it behind many other projects.  There was always something just a tad "more important".  I've quilted the Loon and babies, the tree trunks, a little stitch in the ditch around the narrow edge is the water.  I'm "auditioning" some threads...stay tuned!  My Loon on the Lake moves from UFO to!
