Workshop in Progress Relaunch

It's time to welcome back the Workshop in Progress. We've had a long break now, but with the New Year brings new projects and new commitments. Part of my ongoing push to get more quilters to share their process means it is time to bring WIP back.

Starting next week I will host Workshop in Progress Wednesdays. On this day I invite you to post and share (through one of those clever linky thing-a-ma-bobs I'll put at the bottom of the post) your fabric selection challenges, design wall dilemmas, quilting struggles, and general questions.

We can't all be in the same studio space together (but wouldn't that be fun?) so let's use the power of the internet to create a studio environment. Ask for help, input, and constructive criticism. Share your works in progress and highlight how you got answers you wanted. Introduce others to your challenges and a ha moments. Nothing to share that week? Make sure you visit all the sites linked up throughout the week and offer an opinion.

If your site isn't on the link list to the right there and you would like it to be, leave a comment on this post or send me an email. I'll be happy to add you to the list. Feel free to link to a Flickr account as well. Remember we've got a group on Flickr too.

I'm looking forward to joining you all in the studio!

Great idea! I already added one picture to the pool of the flickr group because I need some serious advice on how to quilt my newest baby quilt :)
Thank you,
Johanna

Oh Yay! I have a project that I was looking at in my sewing room yesterday thinking it was perfect for the WIP! I'll have to take some pictures to get ready for hopefully next week!

I used to be on the list and 2010 turned out to be such a weird year. Please put me back on the list! Thanks, Cheryl

I just stumbled upon this! I have no IRL girlfriends who quilt and thus troll the blogs for tutorials/inspiration/tips. Can't wait to join this. And how do I do that? ;)

PS I'm a fellow CAD!!

Yes, yes, I saw this last year and thought what a great thing to be part of. Confession - I have many ideas in my mind and a couple of starts, but have not yet finished a quilt ever. Can I still play? I thought this might be a good way to finally get one done!

I have a room full of WIP's and seriously need some motivation to finish a few. I'd really love to join in with you gals!

Angie said...

Fun - this will be great! I have never been part of a weekly tag up, this will be fun to see the inspiration of everyone :)

Great idea.Thanks for organizing it.

Rhanda said...

I'd love to participate! I had to put up a WIP because it just wasn't "speaking" to me. I think I have too many colors, or maybe not enough, or maybe not enough texture..... etc. You get the idea. I'll post the pic next week! Thanks for hosting. http://scantquarterinch.blogspot.com/

I think it's time I joined in! I've had a quilt for my daughter planned for a while now - it's about time I started it and had some way of keeping accountable!
