WIP Wednesday

ohhh I'm excited, my first WIP Wednesday !!!  I was contemplating a wordless Wednesday like Clare Dordogne Quilter but considering I go to patchwork club on a Wednesday and usually have something unfinished as the kids are home from school, I'm going with WIP !!!!
Looking through I've decided to link up with  Freshly Pieced, her list of WIP linkers is huge and looks like it's increasing  by the minute,it's her first year WIP anniversary today.


I finished off block 4 of the SAL tonight, and am going to start block 5 tomorrow, or at least I might draw the last 3 blocks out, they don't take very long to stitch once I get round to it, what i'm going to do then I don't know...the SAL idea was bunting but not sure I fancy that, 



Well my WIP is still twister....I'm stuck, what border, what size, what quilting, do I applique words on or not, what do the words say.... my stash doesnt have much that won't clash with the quilt as it is now, the red is more of a pinky red... I think it needs a small border of red or blue and then a wide cream (butter) border...with green/pink flower binding.
WIP too on the Xmas tree, have to make the binding, sew it on and finish it !!! 


ahh well its what WIP Wed is all about :)

  3. I agree that the twister can use something around it. I rather like the idea of a small red border then a wider cream one. Good luck figuring it out!
