WIP?

I’m sorting my 5″ Charms into ‘his’ and ‘hers’ piles so I can start working on the iSpy quilts for the kids for the camper.  Does it count as a WIP if I’m just in the sorting stage?  Sure…why not?

I’ve participated in a few charm swaps so far, and I know I already have enough squares for 1 quilt for Blue and 1 quilt for Pink.

Tonight I’m going to press and cut a bunch of the white for the sashing.

I’m going to use this pattern that I discovered on Carla’s Blog (Lollyquiltz).  Her original pattern was for 4″ blocks, and thankfully she added cutting instructions for 5″ blocks so I didn’t have to do the math!

Happy W-I-P Wednesday, everyone!

Oh, by the way…I dropped off the 10 Little Things quilt at the quilter’s ‘shop’ last night.  She said she should have it done around the end of May – she does a lot of stuff for the high school around this time of year.  She only meanders, nothing too fancy.  She also does it on a regular machine – not on a long arm machine.  I don’t care how she does it, I’m just glad she does!  Hopefully I’ll have the gift ready to give in mid-June!

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A couple of years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI!
