WIP Wednesday

I keep forgetting to update my WIP Wednesday! And I love WIP Wednesdays!!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Well, it has been a busy week. I got a bit of my sew-jo back and whipped up a cot quilt for my new little niece Lola. I have been hoarding a charm pack of Hunky Dory for two years, just waiting for the right moment. I pulled it out and found a few bright solids...then began stitching. It was done in a day.


I quilted it with a simple double-loop (my favorite for little girl blankets), and bound it with some Alexander Henry Heath in pink (one of my favorite fabrics).


The label is perfect to use as a handle too.

Can you see "Lola" in the stitching?


I have been working hard on the Marcelle Medallion Quilt, too! I am up to border 6, which is a little far ahead for the Quilt-Along, but I had so much fun I didn't want to stop!

I love these geese flying everywhere.

I'm about to start piecing border 7. That will start tomorrow.

This month is my month for AusModBee. I made four blocks and will receive 26 back, so I plan to make a quilt with 30 blocks (in a 5 x 6 configuration). I might save this quilt top for after I buy my quilting frame. I like the look of it so much!

I managed to finally make a few fabric bowls out of some extra-precious Kathrine Codega fabric. I love it, but when I used some of it on a quilt, it started fading within three washes. We use and wash our quilts a lot so I am going to use her beautiful prints in things like this, that don't get so grungy they need washing!

I keep foolishly making these for other people.  It this one though! #mine #allmine

This fabric bowl is from the Nesting Bowls pattern by A Cuppa & A Catchup.

Last night we watched TV and I took a break to work on my Briar Rose log cabin quilt. I've almost got the whole middle quilted. It's a long-term project so I'm not super fussed.

It's not done, but I really needed to snuggle underneath it. :)

And, in need of another quick finish, I found an orphan block and made it into a cushion cover! It'll go nicely with my bee quilt, eh? :)

Needed a cushion too!

This isn't so much a WIP as it is a potential project...new Konas arrived from Pink Chalk this week.

I'm stalled on:

  • Oh Quilt
  • Swoon Quilt
  • Terrain Challenge quilt
  • Trade Winds 2 quilt

I'd like to start making these soon:

  • passport wallets
  • actual wallet
  • Wonderland quilt
  • West Hill quilt
  • Pajama pants

And, just for kicks... the cutest children alive.


I might be biased.

Last night during Owen's last feed before sleep I brought both my Elizabeth Hartman books into the bedroom to page through. This morning, when Piper found them, she lit up like a birthday cake. She grabbed Modern Patchwork, cuddled up under our quilt, and opened it up.

I woke up to this! Well, she has great taste in books... :) #modernpatchwork

That's my girl!

So what are your WIPs this week? Visit Lee and link up! Can't wait to see what projects everyone else has been up to! :)

Your medallion looks awesome! I love that little nesting bowl too :) I need something like that to catch all the strings that collect on my sewing table.
