WIP Wednesday

I'm making some progress on my Acacia quilt! I've decided to piece it in quadrants, to make it a little easier, and I'm about halfway done.

I'm using my little row markers to keep everything straight.

I've also expanded my 9 patch piecing method - it's working out great!

I'll let you guys know when this top is done, I'm stoked about this being my "fall" couch quilt!

  2. Looks very pretty on the wall - I love the colors and the neutral ground. Looks like linen, is it?

  4. This is looking so fabulous! Charm packs? How many did you use? I never quite know what to do with a charm pack, this is so inventive!

    1. I used three, and I've got a few squares left over. They might end up in the back, or I might hoard them as "special" scraps :-)

  7. What you refer to as your "9-patch piecing method"? Sometimes at in-store retreats, people see me sew quilts together like that and it totally blows their mind! It's quite effiecent, IMHO - until you screw up. ;-) What did you decide about borders?

    1. I did a blog post about it a while ago, there should be a link there. I just use lots of chain piecing, and don't trim the pieces apart. I decided on no border, but came up with something super fun. I'm hoping to have the top done soon, so I'll bring it by to show you!
