WIP Wednesday

For all that I feel I have been busy, I don't have a lot to show.

I finished off the bee blocks for this month.  We have two leaders this month, so I made four instead of two.  The first were x & + blocks.  I love how these two turned out, and kind of want to make a quilt of these blocks for myself.  Maybe someday?  Or perhaps I'll start cutting pieces from each fabric I cut for something else to make blocks gradually?

I couldn't bring myself to toss the extra scraps from the above blocks so I made HSTs and put them together to make a mug rug. Not sure what to do with them.  I used a new toy, my bloc-lox ruler, to trim them up.  I highly recommend it as a ruler, it's great!

The other bee blocks were Christmas themed, so I used my few Christmas fabrics paired with red and green fabrics.

I also made a new shirt for myself!  This is a Neptune Tee from See Kate Sew.  It's a basic tee that you can put those cute triangle cut-outs into.  I love the sleeves, they're the perfect length!


The fabric is from Girl Charlee, and I am super pumped at how I managed to match the stripes along the side.


It can be left plain, without the triangles.


The cut-outs can also be inset with a contrasting fabric.  I didn't really think that anything would match this fabric well so I left it empty.


I love this shirt! It's so comfy and was pretty easy to make.  And, if you ever wanted to see a lot of me, here you are!


Gratuitous baby photo!!


I will be linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.


  1. Looks quite productive to me:-) I'm in awe of your t-shirt. I am way too cowardly to try anything stretchy and yours looks brilliant - so professional!

  2. Love those X and + blocks - great colours! Your t-shirt is nice too - I also go crazy trying to line up prints along the seams. And that baby is just adorable! Love the dimples!

  3. What a great shirt! You did a lovely job Kate. And yes please to more x and plus blocks. I love them too
