WOW: More Oma Prepping

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
It looks like August is going to be Oma's month! I'm working non stop to get this quilt top done. I love making progress as fast as this because I have quilts waiting in the wings. My family keep asking me why I'm complaining about being 'hard at work' when 'all I'm really doing is hobbying' - but they don't understand. Quilting at this pace IS a job, and a full time one at that!

Here's my Oma's Blues Prep Box. I have an individual prep box for every quilt I'm working on. It means I always have something to be getting on with, especially when I get tired of seeing the same quilt over and over.
What's Your WOW?


  1. I am up there with you about prep boxes, or project boxes as I call them; there is few of them around. I get bored quite easily doing the same thing. Oma's Blues has its own box too now, with fabrics I have been collecting for it, but I do not plan to start until autumn. We seem to have some summer now, so I am working on things I can take into the garden with me, while the weather holds anyway :-)

  2. Never thought of project boxes. Great idea, keeps my table free.Thanks for sharing.

  3. That's a lot of work represented in that box. Your Oma is going to come together in no time!

  4. A project box is a much better system than my 'vague pile mostly next to the sewing machine that might have everything needed in it'... 8)

  5. Hi Ester, Where do you buy the Polyfuse?

  6. Oh my gosh that is one hug pile of Omar's pieces to get through, but I'm sure you are zooming through it right now. These tiny blocks look so charming when joined together they are worth the extra effort making them. I use to steer away from curves and con caves till I joined your BOM's LOL. Cheers Glenda

  7. Hi Esther! I am new to your linky party. Thanks for hosting. A "prep box" per project is a great idea!
