WIP Wednesday


So what am I working on this week…

Mostly the catch up blocks for The Virtual Quilting Bee @Diary of a Quilter, finishing the FMQ on my sunbonnet sue, and binding another quilt.

Busy, busy, busy! I should have a good finish for Friday:)

This is a pic of another quilt I started about a year ago!!! Yikes. It is a baby quilt that is hand pieced and will be hand quilted. I wanted bragging rights to say I hand pieced at least one:)

If I can get it done I will enter it in the State Fair this September…who knows, it could happen.

This is a Tumbling Block pattern and was one of my Grandmother Sassy’s favorites for babies, I think because it is too difficult to do much larger!!!

I try to work on this one when I have down time or am away from the machine. Actually, I just carry this project around with me, but don’t actually work on it,Lol. It just sits in its little project bag all lonely…glaring at me! The thrill is gone(insert BB King music), but I will keep dragging it around until I get my hand-piecing mojo back. I will do at least one block today just for spite!

Happy Quilting and See ya Friday!

WIP Wednesday…


Yes, I am still finishing the binding on this quilt!

I did manage to pick out the fabric I wanted and also get the binding made last week.

Now….I just have to get it on the quilt!

I used this awesome border, backing and binding calculator to figure out exactly how many strips to cut:

I am having second thoughts on this green….I might just cave in and go back to pink!

What do you think?

We shall see!!!

Either way it will be done this week for sure.

Here is a sneak peak at something else I am working on….


a Sunbonnet Sue special request for a special little girl.

Stay on one project, stay on one project…….Oh well!

Happy Stitching

WIP Wednesday


Well, it is officially WIP Wednesday(work in progress)!!!

I am participating with Freshly Pieced and their WIP Wednesday link up,

check out their button to the right;)

I plan to share on Wednesdays what project I am working on and hope some of you guys will share your projects too! Maybe even post a pic!!! You can share here or on my Facebook page.

Today I am trying to finish up this machine quilted tumbler quilt. It is a UFO(un-finished object) that is about 2 years old! My goal this year is to finish all UFO’s. All I have left to do is the binding.

I am thinking a contrasting green for this one.

Happy Quilting
