WIP Wednesday

Since I have a few WIPs, I can join in.  Yay!  First of all, the big WIP, my due date is tomorrow *gasp!*.  Of course it's not a hard fast rule so I have a feeling I'll keep cooking on that one a bit longer. As for quilting/sewing projects, they are all baby related.  First, there is a finished quilt top--I really need to finish this guy off!


I have the batting and backing out and ready, just need to get that last hooray.

Next, I made an in-carseat baby swaddler thing based on a tutorial from Pinterest.  Incidentally, Pinterest may have a lot to do with why my quilt isn't finished.  Oops.


The fabric is a Henry Glass print that I got at a sidewalk sale at my LQS a couple years ago.  The inside is just white flannel.  I opted to forgo the batting, thought it might get a bit toasty.


It's not very easy to take a picture of and look like anything other than a bunch of fabric.  I still need to cut holes to fit it into the carseat, but I am having second thoughts about the carseat that I bought and thinking maybe I want a different one.  I can't get it to sit securely in the vehicle.

Last, but not least, I will be making a carseat canopy like this one here.  This is in the extreme preliminary in I haven't actually unfolded the fabric yet.


This is from Joel Dewberry's Heirloom line in the Sapphire colour way.  I love this print!  The other side will be a grey minky fabric that I got.

Well, that post was excessively long but after this baby comes, who knows when I'll be on next!  I am linking up to WIP Wednesday with Lee at Freshly Pieced.
