WIP Wednesday

It wasn't a particularly productive week for me, I was hoping to find my mojo, it's still missing, maybe someone else is having fun with it.

Although I finally finished something.

The binding is all done and dusted on the Plume quilt.
Plume Quilt finally finished
This is all I can show you though as I need Bitchypoo to clean her room and take the tons of crap off her bed so that I can put it on there to photograph. I promise a full length photo next week.
The stats:
Plume fat quarters plus Kona and Bella solids
Pattern - Between Friends by Atkinson Designs
Quilt - 87 inches by 87 inches
Backing - Kona Bright Pink and Plume
Binding - Kona Bright Pink
Quilted by Fiona the Quilting Fairy.

Meanwhile I'm very slowly adding to the starflowers. Sorry it's a little crumpled, it's getting quite big now so tends to be folded when I'm not working on it.

Starflower progress.

On the crocheting side of things. I finally posted a tutorial yesterday on how to make a crochet back with button closures for a crochet pillow. Something I had been thinking of doing for a very long time.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Pop on over to Lee's blog to see lots of creativity this week.


  1. Lots of great projects! I must confess I haven't read your tutorial because I don't crochet - but I'm sure it's MARVELLOUS :D
    Since we're on the topic of tutorials - I've been meaning to ask you for a while if you'd mind doing a quick tute on how you paper piece using the glue method rather than hand basting them... I went and bought myself some glue ages ago to have a go but I've no idea what to do :)

    Looking forward to seeing plume full length in all its glory :)

  2. Haha, maybe your mojo and mine were hanging out together last week! Really beautiful quilting on the plume quilt!

  3. oh wow! i love those star flowers!

  4. Pic 2 missing, maybe it's with your mojo?

  5. Love it all!! The flowers are gorgeous, and what a cute striped pillow! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

  6. I love the Plume Quilt. What cool fabric!!! Hahahaha bitchypoo...

  7. The plume quilt is lovely - very pink and girly. Your mojo must be putting in little guest appearances and you look like you've been quite productive to me.

  8. LOL! If you've lost your mojo and have three, count them three, projects that you've worked on this week, my mojo must have taken up residence on the moon!

    Can't wait to see the full pic of the Plume Quilt. And those Starflowers are among my favorites of your many projects.

  9. Love the Plume quilt!! Did you do the quilting? Your star flowers are looking so good! The black really sets off the other colours!

  10. Congratulations on the Plume finish . I know that quilt was doing your head in with it's "bigness".

    I really do love those star flowers. Maybe I will bring my hexies up and start them next week and we can hand sew together?

    By the way a finish doesn't fall under the category of "non productive week"!

  11. Well i think youve been very busy and a finished quilt to show for it. Yay! it is a stunner! Cant wait to see some more pics!


  12. Your Plume quilt looks lovely and great other projects. Wish I had some one else other than me to blame for the mess on my spare bed!

  13. Can't wait to see a picture of the Plume quilt, love the colors that show in this post's picture.

  14. Plume quilt is gorgeous and I love the star flowers. What is the destination for the flowers, or it is TBD?
