DWR Progress

After about 8 hours in the car, I made a lot of progress on my DWR. I am already halfway done!

I think its turning out really nice! Again this is my first time EPP and its going well. The basting (thread basted) was a little tricky at first, but it got easier as I went along.

Tomorrow I’m leaving for a 6-hour road trip so hopefully I’ll finish the piecing in that time frame.

While I was away, I visited the shop where I bought my fabrics for my first quilt, so it was a nice visit. Not to mention I bought some fabric!

I bought these fabrics to go with my DWR quilt. The blue will be the background (something blue!) and I think its the perfect blue to make everything pop! I also needed on more gold fabric to go in between the rings, so I thought that fabric would look nice, even though it is a whiter back ground.

I’m loving my fabric pull!

I also got some fat quarters for the lesson quilt (#3). I’ll have more on that quilt later.

I Plead Quilty…

…to starting another WIP. In the next couple days I’ll be spending a ton of time in the car as passenger so I needed a nice hand project, and as soon as I heard about the Double Wedding Ring Challenge I knew what I was gonna do. I am English Paper Piecing a DWR!!

I am only using three fabrics, two of which are a gold metallic, and the third (which is not shown) is a silver metallic. The idea in my head is really cool so I’m hoping it’ll play out perfect!

I have never EPP’ed before but I’m diving right in! I bought this cute little pencil case then decorated it with the uber cute circus stickers (which I bought both for a total of $2.40!) to hold my supplies. It’s cute but now the question is whether it works or not!

In my little kit I have my 2-1/2″ squares of fabric, my templates, needles, thread, paper clips (for basting help) and post-its.

I’ll keep everyone posted on my newest WIP… I’m hoping for a finish post in a week!!!
