WIP Wednesday {9.21.11]

Even though there is no link up this week for WIP Wednesday (good luck with your fabric designing Lee!), I have decided that I need to keep it up and keep my list going so I can organize myself. Somehow it helps to have it all put out there every week and see that even when I don't feel like it, I did accomplish something. It keeps me motivated. And this week was....pretty productive actually :)


Card Condo

I whipped this up yesterday and I love it. It's nice to have a place to store all those cards that keep accumulating. 


All 7 finished and getting ready to go to their new homes

Skill Builder Sampler - Block 11

I actually like the way this came out even though I kind of have a problem with the chaos of improv piecing. (side note: my sashing for this should arrive today! I hope it looks good with everything!)


Love these blocks! And I am rapidly approaching halfway done!

Still Going:


The top is quilted! I decided to FMQ it (what was I thinking?? It's a queen size and only my second time FMQing!)  and while I did manage to get it done in a day, it was a very stressful day. Let's just say that the seam ripper and I developed a very close relationship as I ripped out a quarter of what I had done due to a fold in the back that was making the backing not reach the edge. It was ugly. But I got it done. My binding fabric should come in the mail today and I will hopefully get the binding sewn on this week and then settle down with some good movies


As far as this week, today I am working on my FW blocks and I will hopefully get swoon bound and the SBS block done and who knows, maybe I will work on the little one's scrapbook for her first year. She's only almost 15 months.....I guess we'll see how the week progresses. Happy Wednesday!
