W.i.P. Wednesday

It's been one of those weeks where I've jumped from one project to the next! Focus, Deb, focus!

Completed projects
June bee blocks - Earliest this has ever happened, and I'll share more all about that, hopefully later this week.

Bell Pepper Coasters - The first project in Zakka Along 2.0 :: Patchwork, Please! Grab a copy of the book, and consider joining us!

Ongoing projects
Baby quilt - I'm using this idea by Spotted Stones and have pulled out a Summersville charm pack with a few solids - a light blue, green, and gray, along with white. I've now cut all the pieces but need to get busy sewing, as this one has a deadline later this month.

City Sampler Quilt Along - Blocks 4-6 are done, and I'll show them off later too. Trying hard to keep up with this and loving the small blocks! {Here's the book we're sewing from.}

x and + blocks {#xplusalong- Last we talked, I was piecing this in sections, and now it's a completed quilt top!
I'm working on piecing the back - so far I have a super-sized (44") x and plus block. Just need to give this borders, and I'll be ready to baste!

Bunny frame pouch - Remember this pattern from Zakka Style? I've made it a couple of times, and a friend really loved this bunny version. So I'm revisiting it again to make her one. The easy part's done - now to stitch that frame on!

Improv Slice and Insert Quilt & Polaroid quilt - No progress here.

Upcoming projects
* dress for grandgirl - deadline here too!
Patchwork, Please! sew along projects
* June's Lucky Star
* prepping more City Sampler blocks
* pillows for Mom/pillow for grandgirl
* mail bag
