WIP Wednesday 1.27.16

 Happy Wednesday! Blogging three days in a row - somebody mark the calendar!
 This week's finish was the Color Wheel Quilt.  Details Here.

 I made a cushion cover for my hiney donut.  I took a hard fall on the ice/cement last Friday, which necessitated a certain kind of cushion for my tail bone.
 I thought this was a bit nicer than bright yellow foam.  I just grabbed a couple fat quarters and shaped a cushion.  It's not perfect, but waaaaaay better than yellow foam.  What is that bright glare on the fabric?  I think its sunshine.  Feels like years since we've had a sunny day.  Seriously, at least a week.
 I am feeling better each day.  Don't even always have to use the cushion, now.
 In more fun WIPs, 100 day is coming Friday.  I'm ready with eyes and a couple of T-shirts.  WD is taking care of his own this year (yay!) So I only have to help two kids.
 I'm working on a couple of store samples again.  Big Blocks above, really pretty fabric.
And Yellow Brick Road seen here.  This is a really great fat quarter pattern.  Uses the whole thing!  I have a couple of fat quarter stacks that I may save this pattern for.  I don't typically buy 30s fabrics, so this was a little different for me.  E did the layout and the crawling on the floor for me, since I couldn't, and I think she is partial to the quilt, now.  I suppose she can have it whenever I get it back.  In like, a year.
Speaking of 30s fabric, I'm sure that my inlaws have a set of sheets from the 60s/70s with the same green flowers!

 And last, a sneak peak of the upcoming Four-in-Art quilt.  Full reveal February 1st.

 Linking with Lee.

Rachel, what store do you sew samples for? Glad to hear your bum is better!

Ouch! Sorry to hear of the need for the cushion! Its prettiness must have helped the rapid recovery!

I really like this version of a color wheel quilt. And the color wheel tool you used. Hope you're feeling better, but if I were you, I'd just pretend my tushie is still sore because that cushion is too pretty to stop using.
