Well it is time to get back into the swing of my weekly report on the state of my WISPs (Works in Slow Progress). As regular readers will know this year I am attempting to work through a pile of pieced blocks as part of Sandie’s UFO and WISP challenge.
The last time I spoke about this block was here . As you can see I have done the beading on it and I thought you might like to see the eye candy.
These blocks are part of the diamond block quilt I am working on. It is inspired – or the shape of the blocks were inspired by a quilt made by Martha Bingley in 1883.
The small image at the top is how the blocks will be set. They are pieced and simply laid out on the floor so I could see how the quilt will read.
Here is another two details of this latest crazy quilt block.
This is a detail of floral spray section.
The other block I was working on this week is 8 inch block that was also ready to have beading and buttons. Now it is done too!
This is another that has been beaded. It is a section of a long strip like a band sampler and that is really what it is – a crazy quilt sampler.
Well that is it for my Wednesday work in progress report! (I think my energy levels are returning to normal)
Your work is absolutely beautiful. I regularly check in on your blog for inspiration. Beautiful!!
Thanks for the compliments – they are much appreciated.
Oh Sharon, how beautiful your work is! I love when you share photos of your stitching. Such wonderful eyecandy!
Hope you’re feeling well now. Love your blog. Don’t know where you find time for 3 of them!
The diamond quilt is great – I often doodle that pattenr when I get ‘bored’ in mindless meetings 🙂
The wee grasshopper is lovely and really catches your eye!
It’s looking great!
Your diamond quilt is going to be truly smashing!!!
I just love the blues and corals, Sharon! Really, really pretty!
Glad to hear you’re returning to normal!
Thanks for sharing these — they are just stunning. I love the grasshopper, to pull out just one mentionable thing! I can’t wait to see the finished piece.
