WIP Wednesday 8. 24. 2011

I love WIP Wednesdays. It's great to be able to recap what happened (sewing wise) during the week and see how much, or little, progress I've made.

It seems like this week was full of starting new projects. Actually, I don't thing I have ever had so many projects going on at one time. Here we go.

I finished quilt top for my mom's quilt. I'm planning to give it to her for Christmas. It's the end of August and I'm working on Christmas gifts?!?! Wow, sometimes I can honestly surprise myself.
I'm making Sliced Coins quilt using Don't call me Betsy's tutorial. The fabric I used is Fandago by Kate Spain and the tutorial is very clear and easy to follow. And, once again, I decided to save some money and use Target flat sheet in ivory for sashing. 

I'm using  some of the leftover Fandago fabric to make a matching pillow.

Here's another pillow I'm working on
I started this embroidery in JUNE. I was planning on making it into a big pouch. After I dug it out from under some piles of fabric a few days ago,  I realized that I don't need a giant pouch and I might be better off turning it into a pillow. I added yellow and red borders to bring it to right size.
I just need to finish hand quilting the red border and I'll be ready to finish it off.

I also made this really fun and colorful quilt-as-you-go log cabin block. 
It measures 16 x 16 inches and I'm hoping to make 8 more of these happy polka dots and stripes blocks and turn them into a baby quilt.

I'm linking this post to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.



  1. I love your Fandango sliced coins quilt! What a wonderful gift. :)

  2. The sliced coin quilt is awesome! Also would love a whole quilt of the last block. A bit biased as I just bought some of these fabrics... ;)

  3. Terrific work.

    Your mother is fortunate to have you as her daughter ... and vice versa, we're sure!

  4. I love your quilt and the blocks too! I think your mom will love it too and enjoy snuggling under it.

  5. Thank you, everyone. I always love hearing from you.
