works in progress

I think I need a good dose of finish it up Friday. How about you?

(there are at least 9 more works in progress not represented here. no wonder I'm feeling frantic these days!)

I plan to start the linky party back up this Friday (about 10am central time). For obvious reasons. :)

Also, I hear that leaving comments has been a huge pain because of the word verification, so I'm turning it off for a bit....we shall see how that goes.

Hope you are having a great Wednesday!

Love your design wall!
Much goodies there!

Hannah said...

I can see how it makes you feel frantic, but it does look lovely to an outsider! Makes me want to hang all of my wips :-)

Becky said...

Your design wall looks great! Yea to Finish Friday!!

Can't wait to see what everyone finishes. I turned my WV off a while ago, and I've heard that if you do not allow anonymous comments, you won't be plagued with spam.

Flaun of I Plead Quilty! said...

Such a pretty, pretty design wall.

Marian said...

Yayy!!! I'd love it, i have so many wip's too, i need a bit more of a push to keep me accountable to finishing!! Lovely lovely wall!!

Svetlana said...

Chara Michele said...

WalkingMissMolly said...

I don't feel so bad....I have about 20+ projects going on.
I think your wall looks wonderful!!!

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

Look forward to Friday!!
I hate that word verification, drives me mad!! You can help cut down spam if you find you get any by not allowing anonymous comments and/or approving comments on posts older than a few days.

Foster said...

So happy to have Finish it up Friday back.

Coloradolady said...

I am thinking that wash tub in the corner is holding pure greatness!!! What a fantastic idea!! I just love that!! I'd be pulling my hair out if my design wall looked like that....I feel overwhelmed with 3 or 4 projects going!! However, it is pretty to look at!

Chase said...

Your WALL......... is amazing! lots lots going on here.

Anonymous said...

Wow! Tried to comment on your Drano quilt. It is awesome! What is your method for sewing so many little pieces and getting it done so fast? Please help me to be able to get done faster!

katie z. said...

Let's see if I can get something finished by Friday! Thanks for the motivation.

Sherri said...

Your design wall is so inspiring...I've been really motivated to finish things up this week too! So thanks for the extra motivation to keep working at it!

bloominworkshop said...

Now that's what I call a design wall! So fun!

Live a Colorful Life said...

Wowsers! Here's the thing--they really all look great together! You could just put them all in one quilt. Oh how I love those sewing machine blocks!!(and exclamation points!)

Moneik Stephens said...

Your wall looks awesome! Love to see other peoples WIP's, so I know I'm not alone.

Carla said...

Your projects look so inspiring! Looking forward to linking up ; )

Stacy Lindblom said...

Oh my gosh, is that your WIP wall? I've never seen one of those....I LOVE IT!!

Suzanne said...

I don't have a design wall but I can surely admire yours.

I am thrilled you are doing Finish Fridays again and I know you already know what my first finish will be. I'm going to make it happen so I can stop evading your question about whether the shams are done or not!

Thanks for the lovely kick in the pants. I know you didn't mean it that way but I really deserved it.

Jamie Lee said...

Wow that design wall does look a bit "crazy!". You are lucky to have one and a husband who tolerates it ;)

What She Quilted said...

wow... im not sure how you work with all those WIP all at the same time! I will deffinitly be joining on those finish fridays!

Jessica Christensen said...

Yay! I'm hoping to start linking up (but not this week, because I'm running a race Friday and Saturday). My list is SO long and completely static at this point. Thanks for the nudge.

Nicole said...

Looking forward to the Friday linky party! So glad you are starting it up again. I've missed it!

Quilter Kathy said...

It's a lovely wall full of colour and energy!

Kari @ The Purple Quiltapotamus said...

Oh my goodness - what a beautiful mix up of WIP's! I'm totally interested in the linky party - I need a good kick in the rear!

Deb said...

I think I need a month of just Finish It Up Fridays!!

kmodich said...

Too true about the word verification. I have tried to comment and have just given up. I can not wait to see all your beautiful blocks done. They look awesome!

Rachel said...

Is it me or would your entire design wall make a fantastic scrappy quilt? LOL, Maybe I will find a way to finish something!

Valerie said...

I want your design wall!!!!!!! :-)

Lily said...

OMG!! Amazingly beautiful!!!

Annalia said...

Your wall looks amazing! Won't you miss it if you finish too much?

Tamie said...

Wow- what a full wall. Can't wait to see the finishes.

Books_Bound said...

I'd just sew them all together and name it "Quilter's Delight." It would certainly be original! :) Loving the monochromatic stuff going on in the upper right corner.

Jan Marie said...

I love your wall. Good luck with finishes. And thanks for turning off the verification.

Karen said...

My design wall is jealous of your design wall! I don't know how you find time for all of those projects. I'm looking forward to seeing all of your Friday finishes though! :)

Beth said...

I thought I was the only one with that many WIP (and we will not even discuss the UFOs).
The design wall is just amazing. I can't wait to see the projects as you finish them.

Cathy Tomm said...

Wow what a wall of goodness. Yes finish up Friday is back.

thisyearsdozen said...

Your UFO's look marvelous!! I have to say I have been a Slacker. Yay to your Finish Up Friday return. I need the motivation. Thanks!!

Emma said...

So many beautiful blocks :)

Michele said...

As my daughter would say "Oh my doodness"! That is one packed design wall. And I have to ditto the comment about not allowing anonymous comments. Once I changed that on my blog, the spam comments ended.

Pieces of Cotton said...

I'm lovin gthe patchwork-y stars and the pink tonal churn dash - what can I say - I lean toward traditional.

Ann said...

your design wall is so inspiring!
the log cabin-ish blochs on the bottom, below the brown star just scream table runner for me.

lynda said...

Save yourself some stress and make it all one big quilt- the blocks are lovely together!!

kathy-o said...

Wow - traditional turned modern....I LOVE it!!!! Wish it were on my wall, then on my quilting machine, then on my bed!!!

Karen said...

My goodness girl - what an incredible wall of beauty!!! Can't wait to see them all put together!

Amanda said...

Oooh. I like the color pallete you've been using. Such great pinks and tealy blues. And those sewing machine blocks are way cute.

beth said...

Maybe you need a bigger WALL??? ;)

themissymom said...

Hate that word verification thing, but I understand the need for it.
I have been enjoying the drano quilt project! I followed some of your links back to other blogs. What a fun journey.
That style of quilt is one of my favorites. I think because it uses up what would normally be thrown away....and is yet so pretty.
I am weird, though, I like those photomosaics, too!!

Sarah said...

Wow, I couldn't do that much at once. I need for things to be finished before I can start on something else. My brain hurts when I have too many things to think about!

LOTJE said...

Very impressive design wall! Love that picture.

mindingmomma said...

wow you look busy

Mama Pea said...

I know the feeling. I have way too many projects going on, myself. These look beautiful. The word verification has been a big pain for me....sometimes taking 3-4 tries to get a comment in! So, thanks! Hope all's well!

Artsy-Craftsy Ivy said...

Fantastic design wall! It would make a great quilt, as someone said. And thank you for turning off word verification; it was a pain :)

Caroline said...

I saw that picture and thought the whole thing was a new, crazy-ish quilt. Then I realized it is all of your WIPs. Either way, it looks WAY cooler than my non-existent WIP wall! Can't wait to link up. :)

April (Polkadot Sparrow) said...

Well, if you get too frantic you could always just piece all those blocks together and make one quilt. They have a great Sampler look to them. :)

Jennifer said...

Wow, that's quite the wall! The first question I thought of was: how do you keep it all separate? I don't have a design wall (the only free wall space I have in the house is upstairs, while I sew downstairs. Not very convenient.), but I would LOVE to be able to put my blocks up and see what they look like instead of laying them out on the floor. Oh well, you're looks very colorful and fun!

Finish it up Friday's were my favorite, and I'm glad you're bringing it back! Hooray!!

Cheerful Homemaker said...

I'm really glad you're bringing it back! :) Can't wait to see what everyone is working on.

Lisa said...

What a beautiful & inspiring picture!

tahoe34 said...

So excited about "finish it up friday" Spend my Sunday morning with a cup of coffee and browsing all the fun posts. I've missed it. Thanks, Amanda Jean! Looking forward to all of the great inspiration!

Gemini Jen NZ said...

Now I know why I keep all my projects hidden in drawers, I think I would overwhelm myself to see them all on the wall like that! Would take me an hour to decide where to start! I love the colours though!

cinzia said...

wow! I love that wall! I would just leave it and call it wallpaper!

Annie said...

Love seeing your wall. I've just finished a quilt inspired by you

Denice said...

It all looks fabulous together! I think you should sew it up for a kitchen sink quilt and call it lovely! Love your style.

Unknown said...

The overall look is fantastic, but I agree with Books Bound's comment that my favorite section is the upper right corner where you have the monochromatic blocks. It inspires me to get my scraps separated by color and put something together. I have flannel hung like this but only put up one project at a time. This is way better. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Richard Healey said...

I love the design wall of half finished items. I have a box of unused blocks (left over from various quilts) and just this week the box no longer fits them. I really need to throw them up on the wall and figure out how to make a quilt out of all these blocks.

Can I ask you...is your design wall just flannel nailed up to the full height of the wall? Looks great. I seriously need something like that! Jenn
