WIP Wednesday - 12/12/12

For the Quilting Gallery's birthday giveaway, go to this post.

How crazy is it that it is 12/12/12?!?! :)

I got the quilt that was on the frame last week quilted. It turned out awesome! The blue marks on the quilt are painter's tape that I use to mark where I need to bury threads. More pictures are in this post.

I also worked on my Dresden Plate quilt. Well, the blocks. I had a few misfires when I started, but things are moving along wonderfully now!

Here is the test block.



And after working out the kinks, I have my big blocks for the center finished.

And just something interesting.... I believe that I loaded this on my machine in October. Yes, October 2012. It's a Gutterman spool of white with 1094 yards of thread. I ran out of it last night!

I guess that the strips I sewed for the last Scrap Squad used a lot more thread that I thought it did. And I haven't even started Bonnie Hunter's new mystery yet!

Last week...
FINISH CMQG challenge quilt - Not quite finished, but great progress made!
Finish quilting quilt on frame - I didn't have this on my list last week, but it should have been. And it was finished. :)

Next week...
FINISH CMQG challenge quilt
Work on last Scrap Squad
Start the Easy Street Mystery on Quiltville

I'm linking up at Freshly Pieced.

Your quilts are absolutely gorgeous! I love the Dresden with solids, and the quilt on the frame is so lovely!

Gosh you've been busy (what else is new) sewing! Way to go on the quilting and your dresden blocks.
