WIP Wednesday

I had a pretty productive week.  In addition to making a passport wallet, I also finished some more wonky cross blocks. . .

wonky cross blocks
I am about halfway done with these blocks now.  Most of the first half are lighter blues and I am planning on cutting some darker blues and more neutrals for the second half of the blocks.

And basted, quilted, and squared up my groove quilt . . .
groove quilt - quilted!
Hopefully I will get the binding started today.  I was very torn about how to quilt this one.  Generally I am a fan of straight lines, but I did not think that would be right for this quilt.  I am not very comfortable with free motion quilting, and I have only really ever done some pebble quilting, so I didn't know if I would be able to come up with a different way to quilt each color.  

I am pretty happy with how it turned out.  It is FAR, FAR from perfect, but it is better than I expected it to be.  I figure if I waited to start doing more free motion quilting until I was amazing at it, it would never happy ;)

  6. Brave girl :) But I agree. It's best to just jump in and practice, instead of waiting till you feel you are good enough. I especially love what you did in the white stripe!

  7. The quilting on your Groove quilt looks amazing! I totally feel the same way about free-motion quilting and am challenging myself to do it on the quilt that I'm currently working on. It's not perfect but it's great practice!
