WIPW - What Does It Stand For?

WIPW, Work In Progress Wednesday, or should I say What Insignificant Progress Wednesday!
Well not really insignificant, but I made NO progress on the TASTy sampler (as I reported yesterday)

and only a little progress on the
HC quilt

I quilted a bit in an area where the grey crayon met the blue crayon.

Trinity Green
This is where the progress was made. Another 200 triangles found their way onto the paper strips. The total numer of triangles is 2187


Fabric in Focus

I wouldn't say I am a flashy person, but I do like fabric with metallic glitter.
This is a Christmas print.
 Or would you call it star dust?
Actually in this strip you can see four triangels with gold print, if you look closely.

I hope you have had a shiny, bright and productive week.

  1. Thank you Queenie. Those are good words. It doesn't always happen that way, but that's what we shoot for!
    Good progress.
    I've been working and contemplating a move as in 'down size.'
    That puts a damper on my creative juices, for sure.
    But I know I won't stay down forever.

    1. It is easy to dream and plan, and then give up! Down sizing is something we should do on many fronts, our projects, our living quarters, our belongings, our calorie intake... Here I am trying to down size my stash of fabric, and end up up sizing my quilt stash instead!

  2. Do you know how many triangles you will need to finish the project?

    1. I have been trying to push that question away, but bit the bullet and laid the strips out for an estimation. I guess I'll be needing between 7500 and 8000 triangles. After sewing them all, I'll have to remove 8000 paper triangles from the back. It will be my hair shirt!!!

  3. Somehow many Japanese fabrics get a touch of gold. Some do not like to be ironed.

    1. Yes, you are rigth, gold, and silver feature in many Japanese patchwork prints, and they ARE shy of a hot iron.

  4. god to see you had some time for stitching and plenty more triangles, not worked with metallics in fabric as the one fat quarter bundle I planned to buy said they had to be washed in cold water which put me off a bit knowing me I would spill on it and it would need a hot wash!

    1. So far I have not had any problems with washing metallic, but then again my quilts are not the 'use and abuse' kids quilts that needs a wash every week, so this might be the first quilt with laundry problems. With so many prints this will be a super busy quilt and no one will notice a spill or a washed out piece of gold!

  5. Great progress! How big will this quilt be?

    1. I have a daybed (single) where it would look good, with a bit of overhang on all sides. It will take some time before the quilt is done, though!

  6. I can imagine that you are seeing triangles in your sleep! I like all the colours and fabrics that you have used, they all blend so well together.

    1. Ha, ha! Yes, my dreams are trianglular!

  7. Those triangles are growing. Have you been giving them fertiliser to boost their growth?

    1. Ha, ha! No, but the humidity and heat of Tokyo might have given them a boost. Rather the heat and humidity should have put a damper on my work. You know all about a hot and muggy climate. Let's see how many triangels I can cultivate before Wednesday.
