W.i.P. Wednesday

So I've been plugging along on the commitments this week and making progress . . .

Completed projects
March bee blocks - It's always fun to work on these. You can see them all here but for you Wednesday visitors, I just have to share a new fav again!

Patchwork Wristlet - I've had this on my to do list for ages, and a friend's birthday this week was the perfect opp. I used the tutorial by Pink Penguin, making the patchwork out of a mix of Thimble Blossom prints, including the new "Happy-Go-Lucky." 
One nice feature is the divided interior pocket, and I like the bit of linen on the handle. All in all, another sweet little pouch to add to my repertoire.

Ongoing projects
x and + blocks {#xplusalong} and Scrappy triangles - still cutting more as I work on my other projects.

Woodland cross-stitch sampler - Continuing to make progress and about done with January! #betterlatethannever

Pin Cushions - A variety of scrappy little (4 1/2" unfinished) pincushion tops are now pieced. Hope to get started on backing and stuffing them yet this week.

February's FAITH circle quilt - With the top all pieced, it was time to get going on the back. I used more of my bee-mate's blocks as the centerpiece, and surrounded it with a coordinating Anthology print. Next up, basting.

Upcoming projects
* table topper for mom
Doodle Memory Game
* SMQG star challenge quilt
* SMQG nametag
* flannel pillow for grandgirl
* Polaroid block projects

Linking up with W.i.P. Wednesday.


  1. Love the wristlet! I will need to investigate that tutorial, I think! You have quite a production line going there with your pin cushions- they are going to be lovely!

  2. What are you planning to do with all those pincushions? We had a swap at the RIMQG a few months ago and we discussed various stuffing options. What will you stuff yours with?

  3. I love your wristlet, it's adorable! It has been a while since I have ordered an entire fabric collection, but I have already preordered a bundle of Happy Go Lucky. It's amazing!

  4. Your Octagonal Orb block is gorgeous! You've been busy this week!

  5. Nice stuff Debbie. The orb block is fantastic as I already said, and I really like the pouch as well. The thimble blossom prints all go so nicely together. Did I miss something about the pincushions?? That's a lot of them!!

  6. Another great variety of projects there :o)

  7. Love your little patchwork wristlet pouch and I am amazed that you have all of those pincushions done already!
