W.i.P. Wednesday

Life at our house is turning topsy-turvy this week in the form of emptying out rooms, the word "demolition" added to our vocabulary, and the anticipation of new flooring. W.i.P. Wednesday seemed a good way to keep track of what I'm up to project-wise, just in case the chance to sew vaporizes for a bit.

Current projects
City Sampler Quilt Along - so far so good at keeping up with the 3 blocks a week and hoping that can continue.

Mini Quilt Swap project - this is what I've been working on the last several days. Fabric is cut for a pieced backing, and a new-to-me technique is niggling in my mind to finish it up. At this point, the mini quilt top has been a very colorful journey, not without some self-doubt. But I'm pretty excited about it now and anxious to get quilting on it. Oh and my scrap basket has taken a serious hit, which is a good thing!
ROYGBIV mini quilt top, triple churn-dash, 23"

Riley Blake challenge - I have a tentative plan using my Mango block and have just begun cutting and piecing.

Upcoming projects - I have fabric and pattern all set for several of these - just need to put in the time.
* pillows for mom
* more City Sampler blocks
'For Pleat's Sake' Tote
* Binary quilt challenge for SMQG
Polaroid Quilt
* pillow for grandgirl
* another scrappy quilt
* URHere round 2
* a Nora Clutch

Linking up with W.i.P. Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  19. Your little mini is wonderful even if it did come with some self doubt . . . always leads to self discovery along the way. As for the demo, I've lived through 3 major remodels and know it's no fun but always worth it in the end. You'll make it.
