WIP Wednesday

I didn't actually register that it was Wednesday today until I saw the WIP Wednesday posts popping up on my Bloglovin' feed. Another super busy week with only minimal sewing time, sadly.

I got a bit of breathing space at the start of the week though and managed to achieve this:

And then, the next evening, this:

I am really enjoying this Aviatrix Medallion. I had forgotten how much I love making a medallion quilt. The way it builds up is so satisfying.

Progress has slowed now, sadly, and not just because the next border is made up of 8" blocks!

More because I have a maternal obligation to turn this:

Into this:

Or something vaguely resembling it, at least.

So far I have cut some very wonky bits of organza and satin and generally felt very grumpy with the whole affair. What a lovely mummy I am. Wish me luck!! Costume making is really not my greatest strength. And I miss my medallion ...

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.


  1. This is gorgeous! I really like the gray border around the center medallion.

  2. You are a good mum! I used to do garment sewing, but costumes that interfere w quilting are a real pain. Great fabrics for it, though.

  3. You make me laugh. Good luck with the costume. I'm relieved that my daughter is one and too young to care.

  4. I'm soooooo glad that mine hasn't asked for one (yet)!

  5. I remember one Halloween a long time ago when I made three Tinker Bells and one Captain Hook costumes for 2-3-4 year olds. I got very very tired of sparkly net leaving shiny glitter all over me. But the kids absolutely loved them, and Captain Hook was handed down for several years.

  6. You are a good mummy! I'm hoping Dan doesn't ask me for one of these. He is rather taken with Sophia….much to the husband's disgust! The medallion looks gorgeous so far :)

  7. Your medallion is awesome! Do you have a pattern for the costume? My sister just made one for her granddaughter.

  8. medallion looks good, quite a challenge you have here, did look at the aviatrix on another blog but quickly looked away. Found your blog through LeedsMQG

  9. looking lovely! Love that centre block. Is this following a pattern or winging it?


I love to hear from you! Thank you for your comment :-)
