WIP Wednesday

How is it already Wednesday again?  Some weeks I think it takes forever to get here and other weeks it seems impossible that it is here already.  I took a little break from my complications quilt this week.  As much as I love that quilt and everything I am learning from it I just wasn't in the right head space this week to push through and invest what it takes.

I started working on Color Therapy instead.  Talk about intense.  That quilt is so many things all at once.  Right now I have put the breaks on it.  Maybe I will pick it back up but maybe not.  You can read more about it here.

I gave away my Central Rails quilt for Christmas to a friend who mentioned several times how much she liked it and who I knew was really wanting a quilt.  She is going through a divorce and I really wanted to give her something special that would be like a hug everyday in her new space.  Unfortunately for me that meant giving away one of my favorite quilts.  I love Central Rails because it is the one quilt I have finished as part of the Old Red Barn Quilt Along group.  I don't think in the time I have been quilting I have ever made a quilt more than once.  But I really wanted to remake this one so I started a new version with a Lucy's Crab Shack Jellyroll.  I made my Central Rails quilt with 2 jelly rolls to get the size I wanted so I need to order another one before I can finish this quilt but I am excited about having this quilt back in my life soon.

Be sure to head over to Lee's and see what everyone else is up to this week.


  1. Your complications quilt looks lovely!

  2. Love your rail quilt, it will look so good in Lucy's Crab Shack!!

  3. I love Lucy's Crab Shack, the rail quilt will look great in it. I've got a LCS quilt I need to finish up myself.
