WIP Wednesday {8.17.11}

Seems like it was a pretty productive week! Which is good since for the next few days I won't have time to do much sewing since my parents are visiting. I am in the process of figuring out what is next on my list, so we'll see where I go from here.


Summer Sampler Series!!

It's finished and I am so, so happy with it. I can't believe I finally sucked it up and tried to FMQ, but I'm really glad I did.

Carpenter's Wheel

I don't know what to do with it now, but it's done. And really it's not too bad for a first FMQ attempt.

Composition book cover

This was just a great idea and it makes me happy every time I look at it :)

Skill Builder Sampler - Block #7

A virginia star block. I am happy with it although I kinda wish I had picked different colors.


Blocks 23-26 for me. I love making these little guys.

Still Going:


Nothing done for it this week. It is next on the list though. I want to get all the blocks done by the end of the month and ideally the top together.

Skill Builder Sampler


I haven't started anything new, except for the composition book cover that I also finished. I am hoping to tackle a couple small projects soon, but I haven't quite decided which ones. I also have the beginnings of a design for a duvet cover for my sister, but I'm working that out still.

  5. Oh wow, your summer sampler is gorgeous! Great finish.

    Your Carpenter's Wheel is really pretty. Maybe it could be a holiday table topper?

  6. I totally need a book cover like that. So fun! Your FMQ looks great!

  7. Your summer sampler so gorgeous! I love how you trimmed it out with the colors. So pretty! Love your book cover; that would look really cute as a Nook or Kindle cover as well!

  8. Wow - what beautiful quilting! I especially love that book cover.

  9. That book cover really caught my eye - it's the grey mixed with the colours.

    And I love the look of your FWQAL! The single-colour/white mix for each block really illuminates the pattern.

  10. Your Summer Sampler looks great and I really love the book cover. The gray is a nice accent color.

  11. I love the bright colors in the first one. I love the idea of the book cover too. I would love to know just how to go about making one.

  13. Well I don't think you need to worry about your looks wonderful!!

    I wish I could do it as well....
