Too Many WIPs!

I’m normally project-monogamous because it kind of makes me twitchy when I have too many projects going on at once and that’s exactly what’s happening right now.  I need to get some of these projects finished because it’s making me a little crazy!!!

I just finished cutting everything for the Bloom Bloom Pow QAL over at Freshly Pieced.  So far I’m keeping on track- we’ll see if I can keep this up.


Noteworthy wallhanging for my cubicle is pieced, but that’s as far as I got. I’m going to quilt this myself – not something I am comfortable doing but I’m going to give it a shot.  It’s a Disappearing Nine Patch and I love how it looks.


The Creeper Quilt – all quilted and waiting to be bound.  I don’t have a fantastic picture of it just yet, but here it is on the longarm.  I decided to go with modern squares for the quilting and ditched the idea of straight-line quilting it completely.  I love how it turned out.  It’s a gift for The Blue One so I can only work on it while he’s in bed so I’m not sure when I’ll get the binding put on.


Glamping.  Everything is cut and I’ve started piecing.  It’s ready for the next step and sitting next to my machine if ever there’s a free moment.

Finished WIPs
Yesterday I finished the 2 pillowcases that will go with my Project Linus donation quilt once that’s quilted and bound.  They’ve been sitting on the counter in my sewing space for 2 months and all they needed was the final seam to finish them.  Done!

I can’t wait to see what people are working on and linking up to over at Lee’s.  I’m betting there will be a bunch of Bloom Bloom Pow QAL link-ups.  Go see what everyone’s doing!

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 few 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! IG: wannabequilter

    The square quilting is awesome! Is it freehand or from a template?
