WIP Wednesday, Midnight at the Oasis. . .

A quick progress post, I’m thinking I may be able to stitch a leaf or two before I go to bed, but I’ll take a break because I’m dying to show you how my Midnight at the Oasis QAL is coming along!

I managed to sew all my orange peel blocks together and attach them as a border:

While my machine was in the shop, I managed to finish one of the applique borders, which I promptly attached ๐Ÿ™‚

and lastly, I just finished basting another piece of the applique border:

I am loving this, not sure if I’ll get the applique border finished for Friday – but I’m going to give it a shot! ย I’ll be linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. ย If you get a chance, go ahead and have a look at all the other cool WIPs.

      Thx Stacey for stopping by, I can’t wait to go check out your feed – I have month 4 of the BOM waiting for me to finish the above – just not enough hours in the day, eh? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Hey Carla, applique is the easy part and I cheated on the baskets ๐Ÿ˜‰ looking forward to seeing yours!

    This is beautiful and I love all the bright colors! Question for you though – why do you have tails hanging off the end of you applique borders? I’m getting ready to start an applique border and I’m wondering if there is something I’m missing in my planning.

      Hi Kim, I have the extra vine hanging because they will meet with a flower joining them over the basket corners that I haven’t added yet. Does that make sense? I also stopped sewing the vines down about an inch before the edge so I have seam allowance ๐Ÿ™‚ and I can move them out of the way. I’m wondering if it would have been easier to sew the border first then stitch the appliquรฉ?

    The applique is fun! What a great use of time while you don’t have your machine.

      I’m actually surprised how much I enjoy it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love the Oasis Caroline — and especially loving the Applique border — fantastic! Thanks for stopping by the blog tonight. Hey — I’m headed to SanDiego this weekend — planning to go to Gaslamp Dist, Coronado, Midway and the Zoo…. is there a quilt shop or two I should hook up with ? Thanks so much — Karen

      Hey Karen, I’m jealous, I haven’t been out and about to the Gaslamp district since we had the kids ๐Ÿ™‚ these may be a little out of your way depending on where you’re coming from – there is a place up in Encintas (straight drive up the 5) called Starry Night Hollow starrynighthollow.com and then a place in La Mesa which I’ve been wanting to check out called the Country Loft cloft.com. And i just did a quick search and found this http://www.quiltvisions.org/ which looks kind of promising. Wish I could be more helpful, enjoy your stay! And if you make it to these or find some other place please let me know!

    The whole project looks super. I can understand why you’re enjoying working on it. I look forward to seeing more. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Lucie, thank you for stopping by! I may need to bug you later for some advice on how to quilt this baby, I must admit I’m at a complete loss as to what would do it justice.

Looking forward to reading what's on your mind. . .
