A day late for WIP Wednesday? Oops!

Okay so usually I'm pretty on time - obsessively so, really - but this time I'm a day late for a WIP Wednesday post. Oops!

Anyway, it's been a while since I updated everyone on the progress of the queen-ish sized quilt I've been working on for hubby and I. It's just been MUCH too hot to really quilt something that big, so it's been sitting there taunting me for... well, let's just say the last time I posted about it was in April, though I promise I've worked on it since then!

Well, Wednesdays hubby teaches two anatomy labs in the evening, leaving me to my own devices, so I decided to FINALLY finish quilting it.

In the process, I came up with a name for it: Purple People Pleaser. Why? Because it's got purple on it, and because I like puns, okay? ;)

Without further ado...



I just straight-line quilted, 1/4" to either side of each row.


Until I get around to binding it, it will live here, on the back of the loveseat where I sit. :)

  3. I know what you mean by "too hot to quilt". I have a WIP that's 30% quilted but I haven't finished because it's been so hot. Last couple of days it has been cooler so many this weekend I should finish?

    Your quilt looks lovely! Will you bind by hand or machine?

  4. Your post inspired me to finish quilting a wip that I've been "too hot to quilt"! Thank you! I name dropped you a few times in my latest post: http://www.sleepless-dreamer.com/2011/10/alice-quilted-and-dannies-storyboek.html :D
