WIP Wednesday {The leap day edition}

Happy leap day! For some reason I am pretty excited about leap day this year... really I suppose it's not all that special, but that's alright, I'll keep pretending and enjoying my extra day :) As it is the last day of February I must mention that I did not get everything on my list for the month done (I may have been a bit ambitious) but I did well this week and I'm happy with my progress. I even did well focusing on quilts and not getting distracted by other {smaller} things.


Broken Diamonds top

This is what I am calling this quilt for my aunt and uncle now. I am sure it is not an original idea, but it is really the first quilt I have designed from the idea in my head and not outside inspiration so I'm pretty proud of it. I don't know when I'll get to backing/quilting/binding it, but I am just happy to have the top done.

Leg Warmers

I am happy to say that my knit legwarmers are finished and I love them.


Mini for the wall

I finally started this, which has been brewing in my head for ages. I am hoping to actually finish up the top today, but we'll see. I am using all my Farmer's Wife quilt scraps which are so bright and happy. I can't wait to have this hanging on the wall to brighten the place up!

Echo Quilt
I have all the fabric ready, and the templates printed so I am calling this one started. I have every intention of cutting this out this week. No picture yet unfortunately.


*scrappy triangles {I changed my scrap plan and strings are on hold for now. I will hopefully start it once the echo top is done}
*dresden toddler quilt

So, I completed a knitting project and a quilt top (a pretty big one) this week. And I got started on my mini. I am moving forward which is good because I have a lot of things I want finished in the first half of the year and tomorrow starts March already. These first two months of the year have absolutely flown by.  Well I hope everyone enjoys the last day of February!

  1. I love your broken diamonds! Great job! And I don't think I've seen one like it before.

  2. Cassie- your broken diamonds quilt top is BEAUTIFUL! Did that take you forever?! And your mini is going to be adorable. I loved all of the bright colors you used for the Farmer's quilt, so it's a nice use of scraps.
