As If I Needed Another WIP


Yup…I started it.

I wasn’t going to.

But it was just sitting there.

Staring at me.

I just wanted to see how one block would look.  And I was able to stop at just one.  This one is 10.5″ strips, and the other block in the pattern is 6.5″ strips with a 2.5″ solid frame around it.  I didn’t do that block tonight  because I honestly didn’t want to iron and cut the solid.  I have 5 yards of it, and I just wasn’t up to it tonight.  My sewing space is a COMPLETE mess, and I feel like I need to get a handle on that before I start cutting the solid.

No new progress on Glamping since last week.  I do, however, know how I’m going to do the border, and that was the holdup I was having.  I have to work all day and 3 nights this week, plus a 10-12 hour day on Saturday, so I won’t be working on anything the rest of this week.  So sad!

That’s it for this week’s report!

Will be linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced as well.

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
