It's so satisfying to get some well over due WIPS out of the way. The first one is a QAYG Bias Appliqué project.

And for the second WIP, a finish from a workshop I did with Heather Jones at Quiltcon 2016; Large Scale Piecing. Of course, I had to be different! This was not the design Heather presented us with. I'm more comfortable working my own design, so applied the principles of her lesson to my design. It differs a little from my original because we used graph paper to map the design out. A tweak here and there and I managed to fit mine to the graph.
An eleventh hour minor design change made this one a little tricky to finish, it started as QAYG. I finally figured it out and I'm happy with the result.
For the quilting, all the bright reds and tans are quilted with a contour design. Where there are the traditional triangles and sashings, I stuck to more traditional quilting motifs.
Typically, I've also done this as a double sided quilt. It's an easy process when using QAYG. The construction lends itself well to two sided quilts. There is a lot more work required in the design and fabric selections because I'm literally making two quilts, but hey, I'm on the journey so I may as well make the most of it.
