W.i.P. Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I've had a good quilty week since last W.i.P. Wednesday, but don't feel like I have alot to show you {yet}. But here's the rundown!

Completed projects
Swoon quilt - Finishing this quilt felt like a major accomplishment! 80" square, it tested my machine-quilting skills, but all came out fine in the wash, if you get my drift! If you didn't see my reveal post, it's here, along with more pics. Truly a pleasure every step of the way, this one.

do.Good Stitches November blocks plus a couple of charity blocks provided great fun and a nice distraction from Swoon {pics and links to tutorials here}. 

Ongoing projects
Mini quilt challenge quilt - A work in progress that I'll be entering in the mini quilt challenge hosted by amy lou who sews this Friday. So hope you don't mind if I just give you a sneak peek.


Scrappy Autumn Lap quilt - Sorry, but another project I'm not quite ready to show. Here's a little preview of my palette. The top is done, just what I was after, so now it's on to piecing the backing and quilting.

Wrenly HST quilt - no progress here . . . guess I got distracted!


Upcoming projects  
* 4th quarter 4x5 Quilt Bee blocks 
* Flannel Christmas star quilt - found the pattern!
* Hometown "Wild Thing" 
* Pattern for Mango
* Stash zig zag quilt - debating whether or not to put this idea to rest for now
* Quilts for siblings #2 and #3

Be sure and check in at Freshly Pieced! It's Lee's one-year anniversary of W.i.P. Wednesday, and she has a great post up about the original eight W.i.P. Wednesday linky ladies plus a great giveaway! I must say, W.i.P. Wednesday has been a super source of inspiration and motivation for me this year!

  14. Kate Spain has recently become a favorite fabric designer of mine, so I was super excited to see what you have done with her "Terrain" line. Very well done! I will have to look to see what the Autumn colored quilt looks like when you are ready to reveal!

  15. It all looks great.
    I guess there are a lot of quilts with the name Scrappy in them. I had no idea.
    To me I was seeing all different shapes and sizes of fabric pieces put together for a top.

  22. I love the sneak of your mini! So cute!

    Do you think you'll make another Swoon? I don't think it's out of your system yet (judging by your pins!).

  23. Love the mini quilt; it's looking good!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm liking that floral stripey fabric in your fall lap quilt. What is it called, if you can remember?

    ReplyDelete

  27. Hi all - thanks so much for coming by & commenting - what fun! I thought I'd answer a couple of questions that have come up here: 1)Will I make another Swoon? Well, I really love it & I can't rule it out! & 2) What is the floral stripey fabric in the Autumn lap quilt? It's Helen Dardik's "Too Muchery" Vines in Orange. It's great, isn't it?!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh Debbie! Your Swoon quilt is absolutely gorgeous! And I love how you quilted it! I keep debating on this one and I think you just swung me over into making one!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Can't wait to see the reveal on the mini quilt - your piecing looks perfect. :) Don't you just love all the swooning over your Swoon? lol
    Your Scrappy Autumn lap quilt makes me think that I should make an Autumn tablerunner...
