WIP Wednesday 1.20.16

WIP Wednesdays are good for me.  They help keep me blogging at least semi-regularly.

 This one is for my next Four-in-Art mini quilt.  Full reveal on Feb. 1.  Right now as I type this it is in the wash.  I'm praying it turns out the way I'm expecting. I'll go into all the reasons and details and finish on the 1st, so make sure you come back for that!
I plan on getting a binding on this one today.  Going to do the whole thing by machine.  Maybe a reveal tomorrow?
I need to do some mending.  I don't like mending. 
I picked up this plastic coated fabric at IKEA earlier this week.  Planning to make some draft blockers.  Need to figure out what to fill them with.  Any one have suggestions?  Poly fill? Sand? Both?

 Linking up with Lee.

Gorgeous mini, I'm in awe of your quilting on it. The Ikea fabric should make very pretty draft blockers. Mine are usually filled with old fabric scraps - I keep stockings, socks, worn dishcloths etc for such purposes. I think as long as your filling is pretty heavy they will work well as you want them to stay put and block as much of the draft as possible.

Whoa Rachel, your FIA quilt in progress looks awesome - I am so looking forward to the reveal and finding out how you did it!

I'm looking forward to seeing more of your mini on the 1st. It looks amazing from what I can see :)

My mom made a bunch of draft blockers a year or so ago. You could ask her what they are filled with. We have one at our front door if you want to see it next time you're over.
