W.i.P. Wednesday

Having a staycation last week allowed for a little extra sewing time and a good report for W.i.P. Wednesday!

Completed projects
For the Love of Solids - The swap is over, and what a fun one it was! Challenging as it was, my partner loved what I made her, so that's all that matters. Please go take a glance at my sharing of the process {see here}.

100 Quilts for Kids Quilt Along - I also posted about this quilt last week {see here}, and was able to drop my donations off with Project Linus. (FYI, they also take completed quilt tops, if you have any you aren't interested in finishing and would like to see go to a good cause!)

do.Good Stitches {a Charity Bee} - Swoon block mailed off {see here}.

Here's a quick glance at those three projects, in case you haven't seen them along the way.

Windows Improv table runner - This hopped on the list since last week - a wedding shower gift, that I need to get photos of.

Zip-pouch for mom - Mom's traveling soon and needed a new little pouch. It's the first time I've cut into a bit of Terrain - yum.

Ongoing projects
Cappuccino Bali Pop Quilt - I got all the blocks pieced! Now there's a fair bit of trimming to be done before I can actually sew them together. 

Dead Simple Quilt Along with Lily's Quilts - I showed my palette a few days ago {see here}, but here's a glance at the actual fabrics. Ie. I'm ready to go!

Shades of Grey - Finally have started on these and got 8/12 done. They are quick and fun. These blocks look much better in person - not sure how I'm going to finish this mini-quilt off, so if you have ideas, please share them!

Swoon quilt with Terrain - Fabrics are chosen and paired, but no cutting yet. . . soon, I hope.

Upcoming projects
* Wrenly HST quilt started in Katie's class.
* Stash quilt - zig zag quilt
* Quilts for siblings #2 and #3.
On hold
Block-a-palooza quilt along donated to Project Linus.

There's no W.i.P. Wednesday link-up today, as Lee's overwhelmed by the looming deadline for her fabric design. Feel free to check in and encourage her on over at Freshly Pieced! Have a great week!


  1. Ooh, I'm drooling over the Terrain pouch! Very cute! And I'm loving your Shades of Grey so far!

  2. Wow, you have gotten a lot done! I am loving that shades of grey and the cappuccino projects!

  3. Your mom's pouch looks great! Excellent work! Your Shades of Grey looks fun, too. What about some random angled lines, like a crosshatch kind of thing? Make any sense?

  4. How fun is that to make a little pouch for your mother for her travels! Loving your Kona shades for the Dead Simple Quilt Along. Please share with me how you are donating your Block-A-Palooza to Project Linus...I would like to do the same with my Italian Sorbetto.
