WIP Wednesday {9.19.12}

Can you believe that fall starts this weekend?? I guess the cooler weather is pretty much already here, but it just seems weird that we are almost 3/4 through the year and that it is officially pumpkin and apple season. We will be celebrating this weekend. But I digress, back to the matter at hand. It has been a good week. It is weird to have slowed down and not have a whole lot finished after the last few weeks, but it feels good.


fall jacket

I finally got down to it and finished this up the other day. It took a bit of guess work, but it came out pretty good. Far from perfect, but wearable. I'll post more about it Friday after we get some sun and I snap some pictures of the little lady wearing it.


echo baby quilt

I started cutting this the other day. If I'm honest it was to get some string scraps for my tragic kingdom quilt, but that's okay. I haven't thought through it far enough though so I need to do that and keep going. 

Still Going:

tragic kingdom

I have 9 blocks done! I am only doing enough blocks at a time to bring me to the next size just in case I run out of scraps. I am hoping to ultimately get 20 blocks, but I'm not sure I have enough. We'll see. They are going to need some good trimming though. I definitely ended up with some wonky squares.

pillow covers 2&3
Yeah, no rush on these. I'll get to them eventually. Maybe when I get tired of all those little strips. 

*wedding quilt - this is not at all a priority right now, but I don't want to forget it
*baby quilt -inspiration has struck...once I have time to put it together

I love crafting in cooler weather. Not just sewing, but knitting too once cooler weather hits. And in case you are wondering, my socks are coming along, slowly. I only have another 1.5" of the foot before I start the toe. I guess I just need more movie time :) For now I am just trying to make it to this weekend: movie snuggle time, picnic, beginning of fall party....just a couple more days now....

  1. Cassie, I adore your Tragic Kingdom quilt! It is so gorgeous, I love the colors and I love the variation among the backgrounds :) Awesome!

  2. That jacket is too cute! Very much looking forward to the baby quilt - *whatever* gets you started as long as it does get you started.. and the tragic kingdom blocks look like a pretty good reason, too! :)

  3. Oh, that tragic kingdom is just simply amazing! I love it. And that little jacket is too cute as well!

  4. That is hilarious that you cut out the baby quilt for more scraps for another quilt. Sounds like something I would do. :) Tragic kingdom is coming along fabulously!
