WIP Wednesday

I've been making significant progress on my pile of unfinished projects thanks to my long arm quilter.  It's amazing how fast a quilt comes together when someone else does the dirty work. :)  So far she's helped me finish 5 quilts!!  My stress level is dropping with each project.

My pile is still too big, so I'll continue to plow through.


This Vintage Sheet top was started and almost finished over the weekend.  It's turning out just as I had hoped! It's for someone special and a huge milestone they will be experiencing. I'll tell you who the lucky recipient is after it's gifted.

Also started the jumbo task of cutting up my BIL's 50 Harley T-shirts for two twin size quilts.  It's going to be a big project that will take some time to finish.


--Working on the binding to a Sherbet Pips baby quilt.
--Found a vintage sheet for $2.65 to back my star quilt. I'm not sure I love it, but it will work.

Here is a little something on the design wall by my 9yr old.  She pulled out my 2.5 inch stash over the weekend so she could make a doll quilt for a friend.  I don't know if she'll actually sew it up, but I find it fascinating to see design thru the eyes of children. 

No Progress:
String Quilt--Can't decide on a backing and it's making me a little crazy.
Grandma's Shirts

Star Wars Solid--I couldn't get any good photos this week so it will be revealed soon!

And finally, our parents are coming out in less than 3 weeks for a visit!  In my opinion it's been way too long since they've been here!  Can't wait...

Happy  Sewing!
