WIP Wednesday...

 It's the perfect week for a WIP Wednesday! I just got back from a 10 day vacation, and I need to wrap my head around where my projects stand.

I had some fun with these crazy girls - and they both had birthdays to celebrate - so we had some partying too!


For the past several years I've made them birthday pillows - my pattern in the Martingale book Sew the Perfect Gift. This year I forgot to make new ones and they reminded me that they're not 5 and 3 any more. So the first thing I did when I got home was make new pillow covers...


Another project I'm ready to get back to is my On a Whim quilt. I'm using Florence by Denyse Schmidt. Twelve blocks are done - just 8 more to go!


I also started a new quilt this week! A Tumbler quilt has been on my to-do list especially after seeing Candace's "For the Birds" version. Yesterday I pulled some fabrics in happy colors of aqua, navy, green, pink and gray. I'm using this big print from Gracie Girl as my color inspiration and thinking it may make the perfect backing fabric.


The cutting went super quick using the "Crumbler", a nifty ruler from Carrie Nelson at Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. I think I'm ready to start sewing!


And finally, my October Lucky Stars BOM. This may be my favorite one so far :)

  5. As usual... I love it all! The girls - love that picture the most - the blocks, the fabrics... you're just your own little eye-candy shop. Thank you - and I look forward to seeing how your tumbler - crumbler - quilt turns out. :)

  6. What beautiful projects! I love the idea of birthday pillowcases. And your DS blocks are beautiful.
    I think tumbler quilts are one of my favorite to make. I have only made one (http://sewnbyleila.blogspot.com/2011/11/baby-janes-quilt.html) but it was lots of fun.
