WIP Wednesday

I have more WIPs than I care to admit, but the ones I’m CURRENTLY working on are:

  • Noteworthy Stacks of Colour (Jelly Roll Quilt)

  • Boo Crew Honeycomb – Lori Holt (Hexies)

A quick little run to the long arm last Saturday and I came home with this – a gift for my mother-in-law.  The gracious model is The Blue One.  He had just come in from playing outside in the very cold weather, so it was perfect for him to wrap up in!

It’s Kate Spain’s JOY done in Terry Atkinson’s Fire Escape pattern.  I finished the top in January, but was in no rush to finish it since I didn’t need it until Christmas anyway.

I’m also working on getting my sewing space more organized.  A quick trip to IKEA and I’ve got another 4×4 bookcase to put boxes of fabric in.  We also purchased something that I can use as a design wall.  Hubby hung it for me, but I’m not ready for the big reveal just yet – I need a different piece of batting.  The one on it right now is too small, and my big one is too big so I’ve got to cut it down and I just wasn’t in the mood for that last night!

That’s all for now.  I should be cleaning or doing some other sort of prep for the family that’s invading for tomorrow’s feast, but I’d rather hang out here with y’all!

It’s Wednesday, so we’re linking up to Lee!

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

    I’ve seen so many of those cut in half hexies lately. LOVE it

  2. Oh, your hexagon quilt is going to be fantastic too — love that fabric! I’ve seen that technique here and there before and thought maybe I’d try it someday, but never have.

    You have so many great WIPs going on. But, oh, how I love the hexies! Swoon! 🙂

  5. All of your projects are beautiful! Pretty fabrics to work with.

  6. I love your son modelling the quilt! I love involving my kids in my quilting, this morning my three year old was ‘helping’ me baste and I went to great effort to explain it properly. I figure I’m informing future quilters 😉 thanks for linking up!

I want to hear from you...
