WiP - ballerinas

There is slight progress on my Ballerina's neighborhood quilt. Last week I made one as a trial to see if it works. I cut the remaining colors and chain pieced the pieces into rows. I divided the house into three and I have pretty little stack to be sewed.


There are at least two more quilt I want to start but I'm holding back. I have the fabrics ready but I just have to finish the Newspaper quilt first. I'm not doing any FMQ. Just very simple quilting. I had to repin one side as the fleece on back moved a bit. Yeah it's the fleece that scares me away but I love the snugly feel. I just want to sew around few rectangles and that's it. I prepared the binding so I'm ready to work on that one. I only have tiny scraps from that quilt so I had to choose something else. I didn't like any blue fabrics from my stash so I'm going with stripes again.


That's the top.
In between these quilting adventures I like to work on small projects. So there were few finishes during the past week. I joined the Modern Mini Quilt Challenge. Plus I finished two projects that were lying on my table - paper boat pouch and lavender ornament house.


Last week I was asking for an advice on my commenting problem. I wasn't able to comment on some blogs and I had no idea what to do with it. My dear friend Sandra figured out all those blogs are powered by WordPress. Apparently my comments were going into spam. I found this discussion. I sent my request to akismet and it's all fixed. Thanks Sandra!

  9. I'm glad your commenting problem has been solved :) Your ballerina quilt is going to be so pretty -- you'll save a lot of time by chain-piecing where you can! How's Newspaper coming along - have you gotten the quilting done yet? I haven't even touched my owl quilt for this month - it's been sitting on the table for a while, patiently waiting it's turn - I really need to get my butt in gear - June is almost over!
