WIP Wednesday - The secrets continue!

It's Wednesday and I've actually been sewing this week! Yay! Only trouble is... I can't really show you much. Damn you, Quilting Project Protection Program. That said,  QPP Project #4 is now complete. And I'll be showing it off to you on Friday. Patience, Grasshopper! And QPP Project #2 just needs to be gifted and you'll be seeing it too!

Here's a little sneaky peak of QPP Project #1. I'm making great progress on it - 15 of 30 blocks done!

I will freely admit that this does NOT look very exciting, but it is! It really is! I can't wait until I can share it!

I couldn't do an entire post with just one pic of some squares being sewn together. A while back, Q-D (Girl Guide pal, Q-Squared friend, MMQG guild member and maker of this awesomeness) asked me if I would help sort this pile into a colour wheel friendly rainbow spectrum. With my Technicolor Galaxy shenanigans, she figured I could handle it.
As I dug through the pile, I pulled out all the scraps that had multiple colours in them. I find them hard to use in rainbow palettes. I also set aside the grey prints... not so rainbowy.
As I sorted, I laid them out in a rough colour wheel. Sometimes my workspace just doesn't seem large enough.
No shortage of purples in this spectrum... not shocking given that Q-D just finished a massive project involving a whole lot of purple. I'd insert a link to her blog so you could check it out, only she stubbornly refuses to create one. She makes awesome stuff though... I wish she'd share it in the blogosphere!
I might have to dive into my stash and help Q-D out with this section of the rainbow... not so many yellows and oranges!
I'll be delivering a rainbow sorted spectrum of scraps to Q-D at our MMQG Sew In this week-end. I'm sure she'll be jazzed! 

And, since it's Wednesday, I'm linking up with  and WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced and Let's Bee Social @ Sew Fresh Quilts. Lorna @ Sew Fresh Quilts is the brain behind the Dog Gone Cute QAL. If you're not yet QAL, it's not too late to whip up some super adorable pups. Now that so many of my September projects are wrapping up, I'll be turning my attention to some Dog Gone Cute-ness!



  1. Very fun color wheel fabrics.

  2. Yeah!! You were the right person to organize the colours. I'm sure I can contribute some orange.

  3. rainbowee goodness, you should hire yourself out for that service, Rainbow Sorting, I bet you could get some takers.

  4. I'm intrigued by the colors of your QPP Project #1. I can't wait to see it, but I know how it is to have to keep something a secret. (It's hard!) Your rainbow sorting is awesome!

  5. You're superb at rainbow-ness! I love how you sorted it in a literal color wheel on your table, such a good idea!

  6. What a lovely grouping. Is Q-D really fond of purples or is it really just due to recent projects (could be either, maybe I am just too curious!)? A bit of yellow and orange could help, but overall it is a very appealing color wheel. :) It sounds like you are making great progress on the protected projects.

  7. Well, the colors look yummy, anyway.

  8. I love the rainbow wheel of scrappy colours! So pretty!
