W.i.P. Wednesday

Oh, it has been good to have my sewing maching back in the house and to be sewing again! Talk about withdrawl!

Just Swell sewing machine cover, pattern from Simplify
I also whipped up a new little project for my coworker's birthday tomorrow. She's planning a trip to Hawaii, so I hope she likes the tropical mug rug!

Current projects
Dream Big has been my main project in the last week, from planning layout on the design wall to starting to piece rows. I was kind of concerned about keeping all the rows straight, but it's going just fine.
first four rows done

Ongoing projects
* Kaleidoscope quilt along hosted by don't call me betsy - I couldn't resist joining this one! I'm planning on using my Denyse Schmidt Fairgrounds prints, but need to find a few more coordinates. Elizabeth suggested some DS Katie Jump Rope, but they aren't readily available in my chosen colorway, so I'm still pulling together my final stack of fabric for this project.
(Cutting instructions are released June 23, so there's plenty of time to join in!)
* Comic Strip Quilt is basted and waiting to be quilted.
* Cappuccino Bali Pop "Light & Shadow".

Upcoming projects
Afternoon Snack table runner adapted from this pattern by G. E. Designs.
* Hoopla charm pack received in May's A Little Fabric, A Little Chocolate {Swap!}.
* Shades of Grey. Kind of thinking a wonky log cabin, including my variety of KONA grays, and then adding that splash of {as yet undetermined} color. . .
* Stash quilt - Sew Katie Did's zig zag quilt.
* Quilts for our siblings.

On hold for a while
Block-a-palooza quilt along needs basted and quilted.
That's it for this week! Now it's time to head on over to Freshly Pieced to see the other great W.i.P.s!
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Oh Debbie your list is getting long like mine! LOL I love the side shot of your sewing machine cover! Great job keeping all those lines of sewing straight, I know I would get one or two mixed up!

  2. Ooh, I had to go without my sewing machine for a month around Christmas - it was rough! I grabbed my old Singer from storage at my Dad's house so I have a spare now.

    Congrats on getting yours back! Lovely work!

  3. Love your sewing machine cover, very pretty :-)
    Dream Big looks beautiful, I really like your colours.

  4. Oh my; your list is a bit on the longish side! Love your sewing machine cover. Hopefully I'll get mine back this week and can make one for it.

  5. Oh my gosh! Love the turtle mug rug! The tan fabric looks just like a sandy beach. Of course, love the Dream Big quilt too. :)

  6. Great projects! Love that sewing machine cover.
