WIP Wednesday

I thought it was about time to start keeping track of all the projects I have going on. While my big white board helps, it is pretty full of ideas, not many of which I am actually working on. So, I am linking up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced, and maybe this will help keep me a little more organized (ha!).


Urban Lattice Quilt

I used the quilt along posted by Cara at Me? A Mom? I changed the proportions a bit, but I'll post more on that when it is finished and I can reveal it after it goes to its new home in July. I am working on binding this one. Another 2-3 movies and I should be good to go. It was a beast to quilt but I am really proud of it and I can't wait to show it off and give it to the new owners :)

Christmas Pinwheels

I am not even sure what I am doing with this quilt or who it is for at this point, but I have had it cut out for months. You know, since it was originally going to be a christmas gift. Oops. But I am determined it will be the next quilt I complete. I need one more piece of fabric which I will hopefully pick up this week and then I will cut the rest of the squares and start making some HSTs.

Skill Builder Sampler

This is being hosted by Leila at Sewn and I couldn't help but join up. It will be my first quilt along in real time. I can't wait to get started this weekend. I have all the fabric picked and washed and ready to go. I still can't comprehend taking a year to make a quilt, but that's okay, it will be fun!

Other things

Fabric Birthday Garland

I started by making a test fabric flower/pompom/whatever and I really like it. I am excited and hope to cut out all the circles this week and start putting it together.

4th of July Dress for the wee one

Fabric pieces cut and ready to go, I just need to get some bias tape and maybe fabric to make some little shorts/bloomers for underneath. It's going to be so cute I can't stand it :)

Birthday Dress for the wee one

I am messing with the pattern now to try and get it to fit a little better.

I think that is pretty much it for now. I am going to just limit myself to things actually started or that I have the fabric ready for instead of including the gazillions of ideas in my head since, let's face it, that would be very overwhelming. So my starting count:

total projects: 6

  1. Hey! I have that knit-looking Christmas piece in sky blue!

  2. I have quite a list too. Doesn't the list of ideas for quilts ever grow! I am working on my UFOs too!
