WIP Wednesday

I am linking up with Freshly Pieced today for WIP Wednesday...cannot believe I have added to my list!!  Anyway, here is my additional WIP.

New Wave quilt

New Wave

I was able to get it basted last night...I actually SPRAY BASTED (happy dance!) and was pretty impressed with how quickly it came together.  I have to decide if the extra cost is worth the time saved on the ground safety-pinning my life away.  I don't know about you, but it takes me at least an hour from start to finish to pin-baste a lap-sized quilt.    Cuts the time in half by spraying.  We'll see how it sews together!

Also in the works, but not yet started, are the Kaleidoscope Quilt Along (starting tomorrow) and the Double Wedding Ring Quilt Along (starting 1 July).

AND I found the perfect pattern for my Flea Market Fancy fabric...but will absolutely wait until I get some of these quilts off my WIP list (side panel)!!  I get so excited about starting new projects that I don't finish up what I already have going on.  Hate that!

2 Customer quilts--both basted this week

1974--will bind this week
Beach Baby Days
Single Girl--will get finished piecing this week
Deer Valley--stumped on borders

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. I love your New Wave quilt! It's beautiful and what great colour choices!

  2. Love your new wave! I made one, too - a great little pattern. Curious to see how you feel about the spray-baste after you are done quilting. Will you definitely be washing the quilt when it's done, then? I've never used the spray but curious about it...

  3. Love that New Wave quilt! A friend did it and I just love the pattern. Yours is beautiful!

  4. I love the fabrics you used for the wave quilt. Very nicely done.

  5. Very inspiring! I think I'll be making one of this pattern!

    Have you thought about using fusible batting? I use it exclusively for items I quilt on my regular machine, but not for quilts I quilt in my long-arm machine. Fusible batting has saved me so much time that I have been able to make MORE quilts!

  12. Love your New Wave quilt! So bright and cheery.

  13. Great fabric for the wave quilt. It looks wonderful.

  14. Your quilt top looks wonderful! I recently spray basted for the first time too and I thought it was totally worth it... so much easier!
