I got more mail for WIP Wednesday

Happy middle of the week! On Monday I showed the beginning of this quilt and speculated that it needed to be a bit bigger... and today it is! I added two rows to the width and two rows to the length. I like the proportions better this way.

This is from the Post Card QAL on A Quilter's Table blog. You can find the instructions here. It is a super simple sew. I've spent more time folding and re-folding fabric than I have spent sewing. I got all the "fronts" of the postcards cut and arranged and I'm happy with the flow of the color. They are all Kaffe Fasset, Brandon Mably or Philip Jacobs.

I LOVE text fabrics - it goes along with my love of samplers. And some of the postcards talk to me. See the one that says "need"? And the two above it with the script writing and the math equations?

And the one that tells me "sew" and reminds me I need a new "spool" of thread - I told you the fabric talks to me - LOL!!

All I need to do is sew the rows together and this one is off the the long arm quilter. Oh go check this out on Missouri Star's Facebook page - it made me laugh!

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday. Lots of eye candy there!

happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. I like text fabrics too! Spelling for a living might have something to do with that :)

  2. Wonderful fabrics. I saw fabric that was orange and all Halloween words in black. Loved it!

  3. What a fun quilt, a great idea! And I LOVE your choice of fabrics! I just joined the Kaffe Fassett Collective group on Facebook - I'm constantly over there drooling at all the wonderful projects people have on the go! Yum! (via WIPW)

  4. Ooooooooooo, Kaffe!! Love it!!

  5. I'm jealous of your text fabrics! I have a small collection, but it's rather quiet. I hope that it will be more conversational when I work up the nerve to cut into it.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
