WOW: Scallops, Scallops Everywhere..

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
I adore scallops (or do you call them clamshells?) I've always thought and referred to them as scallops and now I can't get out of the habit. Anyhow, I have a whole stash of gorgeous black and white and grey fabrics that I decided to just start scalloping and stacking up to make a new quilt top.

It's a gorgeous way to stash bust and I'm loving every minute of it. Right now, it's not too demanding on my eyes or mind either which is just what I need. I have a wonderful I pattern designed for scallops and I'm using my Template from that pattern, the only problem is I can't show it to you as I don't know where it is - I simply cannot find it! It's called Shelly and when I come across it, I will be putting all these scallops to use. The only thing I know is the number of scallops I need because I wrote it on my template! For now I will just keep making scallops until Shelly shows up.

Last week I was all excited about Koi Garden and planned on releasing it but then I came down with a 2 day vertigo attack. I'm still not 100% after that and am taking it easy. It means my exciting art quilt plans for Koi Garden have to wait until I feel well enough to tackle it. My vertigo attacks and ear aches are really keeping me mostly away from my screen. I don't have the nerves to sit behind a computer for long enough to do anything with it.

So, it's all about the simple scallops for me today..

What's Your WOW?

  1. What a wonderful way to examine the principle of 'value' - I love the scallops.

  2. Not sure I have heard them called scallops before but I like it. I expect the pattern will turn up when you start looking for something else. I shall look forward to seeing your progress.

  4. Hi, Esther. I'm sorry you're not feeling well! Hopefully you'll be back to all of your projects soon. I have had clamshells or scallops dancing around in my mind as well lately. I cut out some 4" scallops but then didn't like those fabrics together, then ordered a 9 1/2" acrylic template so I could fussy-cut larger prints into scallops, but haven't gotten to using it yet. I do hope you find your pattern so you can show us your scallop project!

  6. I love your scallops. I recently finished a clamshell quilt. Mine were 4" clams. The quilt has1298 clams in it and no two are alike. A true document of my stash :). Have fun with yours.

  13. Get well soon Esther! I do hope you are feeling better soon. I can recommend a naturopath/Chinese medicine/witchdoctor (well, he seemed to be able to fix anything) in Essendon. xoxo

  15. Love your scallops, hate the vertigo. I've had it for a week now. Brought on by some physical therapy for my shoulder, but a post came across my facebook account showing I had it this time of year in 2014. Hope you're feeling better soon! Think I've got to start collecting some grey, black and white fabric.

  16. Great black & white scallops! Love it!
    Esther, PLEASE go to this video and TRY it! It works for me EVERY single time I get vertigo...caused by an inner ear issue I've had most of my adult life. You won't regret trying it!
