Work in Progress Wednesday

I do feel a lot more organized when I limit the number of projects that are on the go at once...but it does make for kind of boring blogging when you see the same thing over and over!!

This week I am trying to finish the "Memories of Paris" quilt....( the last of my Etching fabric)

The FMQ is going really smoothly (touch wood!! hehe) but wow...it seems to go on FOREVER!
This quilt is about70"x80". I have gone back to my standby favourite pattern, the echo teardrops...

Along the border I am using a freehand swirling kind of thing... (sorry about the color, it is actually black)

Hope to get it finished and the binding and label on this week!

Now I am going to check on all the other wonderful things going on at The Needle and Thread Network
and Lee's Freshly Pieced Work in Progress Wednesday.

  1. When you photo a piece under the machine - turn the sewing machine's light off - then you will get a 'true' color. I can't wait to see this one in completion!

  6. I love your reasoning behind calling your blog "butterfly quilting". You could also say that you "flutter by" things as well, lol! At least, that would describe me. Lovely quilting.

  11. I think it's amazing a person can machine quilt a full-size quilt. Not sure I'll ever be one of them. :(
