W.i.P. Wednesday

It's W.i.P. Wednesday, and I confess, I spent alot of time in the sewing room this last weekend. 

Completed projects
I snuck in another little project. Couldn't resist making another Mini Swoon.

Ongoing projects
Quilt #6 of the Prairie Women Sewing Circle is almost done! After what seemed like a very long time sewing the rows together, I took advantage of the great weather this weekend and laid it out on the deck to baste. Made basting almost fun! I should have the binding (and the series!} finished by the end of the week!

Still making half-square triangle blocks for the Scrapbuster Swap. There's alot of cutting, sewing, and trimming still to be done on this little project. And this baby actually has a deadline, so I need to keep moving.

I've barely begun piecing my Kaleidoscope quilt along triangles, but at least they are at the top of my list now! I'm somewhat uncertain about my lay-out, so that's slowed me down a tad.

Dream Big is still at the quilters. Anxious to see her again soon.
Cappuccino Bali Pop "Light & Shadow". Coming into the mix soon!

Upcoming projects

Afternoon Snack table runner adapted from this pattern by G. E. Designs. Really need to get going on this for my mom. Will be trying to cut it out this week.
* Stash quilt - Sew Katie Did's zig zag quilt. After taking Katie's class last week, zig zag may move farther down my list, as I started a new hst quilt in the class. We'll see.
* Shades of Grey.
* Quilts for our siblings.

On hold for a while
Block-a-palooza quilt along needs basted and quilted.

That's it for this week! Be sure and head over to Freshly Pieced to see more W.i.P.s!

  2. Love the hoopla fabrics! I made 3 baby quilts with that fabric set. Your Kaleidoscope fabrics are awesome! That is going to look great!

  3. You've been a busy sewing bee and all your fabric choices are lovely.

  4. Basting on the deck would be fun! Love your triangls for the Kalesascope quilt {think I said that before, LOL}. Can't wait to see your dream big post quilting. I also wish I had your scraps for the top triangle.... what fabrics are those?
