Work in Progress Wednesday Block 39 started

Lace Quilt Block startIt is work in progress report time again. How did that happen so quickly?

This week I have started in on this block for my lace quilt. This is one of the darkest blocks on the quilt and I have yet to do any embroidery on it. Next week I hope to share what I have done.

You will find all the other blocks to this quilt in the Lace Quilt category

Join in Work in Progress Wednesdays and leave a comment

Work in Progress Wednesdays (WIP Wednesdays)  is not exactly a challenge as it is more like a support group! The aim is to encourage people to complete  languishing projects or WISPs (Works in Slow Progress) or completing UFOs (unfinished objects) or those in the process of de-stashing.

The idea is, that if you regularly report publicly on a project you are more likely to pick it up and work it a little. Even if it means the project is out and ‘looking at you’ for most stitchers it means they will work it a little. So if you have something you want to share please do!

Leave a comment with a link to your site. If you include the http bit of your web address in the comment it will become a link and folks can visit and see what you have done.

  1. Hi
    I was just wondering if I am too late to join in with this, I’ve just got out a UFO that has very little done on it but that I really want to complete and joining in with this is just the motivation I need to get on with it

    1. Hi Jackie yes join in any time – its for everyone the aim is to simply “get it done” not “get it done IF you meet this that and the other requirement”.It really is to help people get to the finnish point of a piece.

  2. Looks like you’ve made a good start there.

    I’ve done about 4 lots on my piece since last Weds and am pleased with how it’s progressing. Here’s my post:


    I’ve been thinking about what you were saying about your thoughts on seeing aqueducts etc in France and seeing nature as something to control whilst hearing about all the terrible storms, floods and now high winds battering parts of the UK!!=) It’s howling out there right now, but, thankfully, we’re on v high ground and nowhere near the affected coasts and riverside areas, so we’ve escaped the floods.=)

      1. Thanks! We’re feeling very lucky to live away from those areas! It’s still blowy and rains a lot here too, but nothing terrible. Good time to stay inside and stitch. Now that I’m all caught up on my share of the housework, I can devote tomorrow to creating my Japanese lady.=)

  3. Block 39: beautiful colour scheme and materials! I’m puzzled, however, how you managed to attach further pieces to the royal blue piece on the left hand side which has two different angles?

    Best regards, Verena

    1. Verena I am not sure quite what your question is I used a regular sew and flip method worked in a clockwise direction so the two middle bits first then the bottom light blue then the curved blue piece then the old tarnished gold piece then the blue with the metallic strip then the last piece which is a silk – hope the piecing order makes sense now

    2. Sorry to bother you again. It’s not the order of piecing I’m wondering about, it’s the question whether you sewed the blue curved piece from two different sides to achieve a sharp angle or it is meant to be a curve? in the latter case how do you prevent a bump?
      Thanks, Verena

      1. Verena I simply pieced the curved area – I use a lot of pins and sometimes tack stitch but often I do it the way Allie Aller does it here

        it is not a beginners technique as there is a lots of easing and fiddling to make sure the curve will sit flat- but it gets tot the stage where you can piece a curve fairly easily and if you hand tack pieces in it is not hard
