WIP Wednesday

I am going to start this WIP Wednesday off by saying that migraines suck! I have had one since Monday and am barely making it through the day. So needless to say no sewing going on here. Before the migraine struck I was being very productive. I got the binding done on my Valentine mug rug and on the Swoon Sampler.

Ready to quilt - 2 Wirlygig quilts. One is 40x40 and the other is a little larger with borders. I am out of batting so until I can get to town to get more these will hang in my sewing room.

Below is my color wheel quilt - This is actually quilted and ready for the binding to be hand sewn.

Next up is my new quilt labels!! (Sorry the photos are so awful) I designed them in Adobe Illustrator and had them printed at Spoonflower - a whole yard of labels. They turned out so awesome. I used my first one on the color wheel quilt. Before I was using the printed iron ons from Joanns.

I have made some progress on my plus quilt too. I am hoping to finishing sewing the pluses together this weekend and add a few borders.

Still to bind
- New wave quilt
- Oriental circles quilt

Love the wirlygigs quilt. Great colour choices!

I would never have thought about printing labels at Spoonflower - great idea!

I just love your Whirlygigs! I have a set of fabrics waiting, waiting, waiting for me to get to do them up as a whirligig quilt. Unfortunately, they just went into a storage unit until after we're moved, so I won't even get to see them (let alone do anything with them) until at least mid-June. Cute labels. :D

I love the quilts and your labels. Would you do a label creating tutorial pretty please???
