WIP Wednesday

I don't seem to have anything finished this week, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to do another WIP Wednesday. My current list....

And a few of the highlights...

This is Block 3 of the Lucky Stars paper piecing BOM.

And my first 3 blocks together. I'm so enjoying this monthly commitment!

I started piecing a new quilt. Since the baby quilt is done, I thought Mama might want a quilt too. I'm doing a variation of "Candy Necklace" which just happens to be Lee's pattern in the new Martingale book, Modern Quilts From the Blogging Universe. I'm making it a lap size, adding a little negative space and changing the colors a bit. I'm excited to see it come together.

I'm really focused on finishing a backlog of quilt tops. My Notting Hill Trip Around the World is currently under the needle!

Quilting on this Sunburst was completed last week and I'm just stitching down the binding. Our guild is having a handwork get-together tomorrow and I hope to get this one finished!

And I had to share this with you. If you saw my last post, you know my granddaughters were here last week. The 5 year-old has quite a creative flair. During some quiet time in her room, she made this outfit for the Teddy Bear. She said it took a few tries to get the sleeves right, but I was pretty impressed by the results!!

She claims she's going to be a fabric designer when she grows up. Looking like a star already!

  1. I love your luck stars! That particular pink with navy are perfect with each other :)

  2. I used to make clothes out of paper for my doll, although not as impressive as your granddaughter's. How wonderful!

  3. Your lucky stars blocks looks great! I made mine with black background fabric, and I'm rethinking it..

  4. How exciting that you're making a variation on Candy Necklace!! I'm so excited to see what you do with it! And thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

  5. Love the star blocks and of course the teddy looks so fierce in that look!

  6. Love the star blocks and the sunburst quilt. Great job :-)

  7. The stars are beautiful but no comparison to the bear's garment. I mean, after all, you did have a pattern.......


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
