WIP Wednesday {11.27.13}

What a week! And can I just say I feel like I blinked and November is over. I mean wow. In any case, I got a lot done this week, I am pleased to say. I still have a ton to go, but it is encouraging to see progress.

hexie doll quilt - all finished and I kind of love it!

slippers - these are done but they came out freaking huge. And I even paid for the pattern pieces, and I know I cut the right size. Sigh. More on that later.

penny sampler - the top is done! the top is done!

still to do...
security blankets - just need binding.
quilt for neighbor - yep, I have been ignoring it for months and it is time to just get it done
suitcase for the little - I have fabric, I just need interfacing and zippers I think
bag(s) for sister - I think I know what I am going with here and I need them done in the next 3 weeks.

and since that is what is most pressing and what I can think of, that should be enough for now. I need to figure out quilting for the penny sampler, and a back for that matter, but first, I have to do this other quilt for my neighbor that I've been putting off for ages. I am hoping to get the top done over this long weekend, but that may be a bit ambitious. Anyway, I hope everyone celebrating has a lovely thanksgiving :)

  1. Your penny sampler is stunning and the quilting on your hexie doll quilt is darling, little stars hidden in the hexagons :)

  2. Your penny sampler is gorgeous. I can not wait to see more.

  3. Loving that Penny Sampler - can't wait to see it completed:)

  4. Congrats on your Penny Sampler. Sorry the shoes don't fit, that's frustrating because they are cute.

  5. I love the Penny Sampler, too!

  6. Wow, that sampler is sooo awesome! I love all the details and the color scheme :) Sucks your slippers turned out big... They seem really wide from the picture. Is there no salvaging them?

  7. Your penny sampler looks great! And those slippers are very cute--I remember the first time I made a similar pair for my son the first set were way too big too.

  8. No surprise I love the fabrics in the Hexie doll quilt, and your Penny Sampler is lovely....slippers way too hard for me!

  9. That penny sampler is so awesome it is giving me an inferiority complex.

  10. That sampler is spectacular...I knew it would be!! The colour combo gives it a really modern look :)
