So this would have been a WIP Wednesday post, only I'm not quite sure what happened to Wednesday this week. It seemed to zip by in a blur I'm afraid. But I've got a new WIP on the go. It's an extremely tricky WIP that is requiring much important research. It's going to be a seaside themed quilt, so here's a bit of my research...
I really love her work, and it has just the kind of feel I've had in mind to try and recreate in a quilt. So I ignored my other WIPs and I started! I haven't got very far, my extensive research has been getting slightly in the way. But I have gathered together a lovely collection of wools, drawn a very rough sketch (on the back of an envelope!), come up with a hazy, half baked plan to translate said sketch into patchwork and sewn 2 strips.
Doesn't look like much yet really I'm afraid. But I'm hopeful it might turn out just as I imagine it. You may have to bear with me though, since, after tomorrow, I'll have all 4 little ones off on holiday, who will appreciate the research trips far more than the sewing time!
I'm too late to link up with the usual WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced, although they do have lots of other lovely looking WIPs worth a browse, but I'm not too late for 'Lets Bee Social' at Sew Fresh Quilts - hurray!
