WIP Wednesday

I've been gone for over a week, so I figured that I'd better get to work so that I have something worth showing.  I think I sorta made it.  I had last evening and today to make progress, and progress was made.

While I was in the hotel I did some hand sewing:

I haven't finished sewing it together, but the plan is to applique that baby to a pillow, kind of like this one. The grey is the same fabric I used to make curtains so it's supposed to match.  I don't even know how to go about appliqueing (spelling??) this on because of the whole paper piecing thing.  Either way, it may take a while to get there!

I finished piecing together my snapshot quilt top.  Surprisingly (not), if you're a little off piecing together pieces at the start, it only gets worse and worse throughout.  However, altogether you can't tell too bad.  I hope.

It's nice to get this one together--I wasn't really sure how it would turn out, but I do really like it.  However, soooo much ironing.  So much.

I made some weird little coasters that I'm going to try some different quilting techniques on.  Eventually.

And, last but not least, I finished the cutting for my Starry Eyed Christmas quilt, and started piecing.

That is Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater
I did nothing with my accidental baby quilt, and have several plans that are in my mind only.  Sorry, can't link up to that ;-).  One will involve an Etchings by 3 Sisters charm pack.  Love that stuff.

Head on over to Lee's blog to check out everyone else's work!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. I know the feeling of being 'a little off' at the seams at the start and then realising it's a BIG PROBLEM later!

    But the snapshot quilt looks beautiful!

  2. I think the color palette of your snapshot quilt is so soothing & refreshing - I just love it!

  3. I love the colours in your quilt.

  4. Hey, I've used that orange birdie print before! It's so cute. Is that your ironing board cover?

  5. Great job on that snapshot quilt. That looks like a lot of work, and no I can't tell you were off!

  6. I can't tell either! It looks great!

    I'm a newbie Quilter so I make mistakes all the time. What I tell myself is that a) the person receiving the quilt doesn't quilt and that b) the person receiving the quilt doesn't sew so A plus B equals they wont even notice my mistakes! Lol

  7. I can't wait to see more of your christmas quilt. I followed the link, and the pattern looks awesome!
