WIP Wednesday Quilting Edition

No knitting pictures for today, the Liesl sweater is only a little farther along, I do have the colorwork section on the Nederland vest done.  I also finished the Revival Socks so I will have an FO post perhaps tomorrow.  I haven't had much knitting time the last few days, I have been too busy.  Yesterday I finally made it to the Freight House Farmers Market to pick up some peppers, garlic and extra tomatoes for canning some salsa.  I haven't made salsa in a few years so hopefully it turns out well.

Today I have Quilting WIP's to share, actually I should admit that I haven't worked on either in months!  Hopefully posting them here will motivate me to get to work on them.  The first is my Rainbow Road table runner.  This pattern is from the Curved Class by Stitched in Color that I took last spring.  I really signed up for the class because I loved this table runner so much.  I did enjoy the class though, I have materials for a few more of the projects that I should get going on.  I really need to get my table runner finished but I started having a few issues.  I think I made my pieces too curvy so I was having trouble stitching them together.  I think I need to get to work with my seam ripper and try again.  Hopefully I can fix it.  I did have a lot of fun cutting up my charm packs and randomly sewing them back together.

My second WIP is the Mod Sampler Quilt by Oh Fransson.  The fabric I am using is Stitch by Betz White.  I have all the blocks done and now I need to start working on the sashing. 

My goal for next WIP Wednesday is to have some progress made on either of these projects and to have both Liesl and the Nederland Vest finished!  I should have a good amount of knitting time over the weekend because we are going to Des Moines for the state fair which is about 3.5 hours from here.  Pat always does all the driving so I will have lots of time to knit!
