WIP Wednesday: Frankly, Hank Progress

Flying in the face of quilt show norms seems to be very attractive to me…. or maybe it’s because I can play with my best pal, the Sewline Glue Pen, that’s firing me up? Either way, I’m making quick progress on the Frankly, Hank quilt and steaming through glue pen refills. At Festival this year I will be treating myself to some new applique scissors as I think these ones are nearing retirement.

I know I’ve blogged it a few times around these parts, but I wrote about the process for this quilt over on 52 Quilters as my departing post on Sunday which you might want to take a look at.

And this is what it currently looks like as of this morning (dog included for size perspective)! I’m pretty pleased with it so far, especially since I don’t get a very good idea of how my fabric choices are playing together until the freezer paper gets pulled off. Black is quite difficult shade-wise so he’s looking a bit grey to get the shading in, I still think it’s OK though.


I’ll probably post the progress after this evening’s effort on IG later. He may have two eyes by then.
Linking up to WIP Wednesday.

    it’s looking great! I think grey is the only option to get some contrast in all those black areas, but it looks good.

    Kerry this is looking just brilliant. Don’t second guess. Glue away. This is going to be an amazing finish. I am following on Instagram too.
