WIP Wednesday

After a fun week of hanging out with the grandkids, I was back in the sewing room on Monday taking inventory of what's up!

Here's what I'm working on...

Geezzz... my list of unquilted tops has grown to six! I've been really good at keeping up with them in the past year, but definitely fell off the wagon so far this year. My Bernina is being serviced, and I'm getting a couple of tops basted so I'm ready to go when it returns. Starting with this one...


This has been such a fun, but slow project. I'm down to finishing up the appliqué on a few more background pieces, then just have to fill in the edges. It's getting close and I still love this Gypsy Kisses so much!


I only needed to add some borders to this one this week...


Those are done and it's ready for quilting!


And I'm thinking about doing a little "Swooning" again....


What are you up to? Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced today!

  6. I've admired and commented on the Sweet as Honey quilt on IG. I'm wondering what you started with - FQ bundle? How big did this Vanilla & Blooms quilt end up? I just LOVE IT!

  7. They're all gorgeous! I'm hoping to start Gypsy Kisses this summer... if I can just decide on what fabric to use. Maybe I'll just copy your quilt. LOL

  9. Nice tops!
    You get them basted? I want in on that. Do you send them to a long-arm quilter for basting?

  10. You make some lovely blocks. I love reading to. My favorite series of books is "A tale of the Malazan" The first book is "Gardens of the Moon" by Steven Erikson. His buddy Ian C Esslemont also writes books to co-inside with Erikson's books. They developed this story line when youngsters in Winnipeg, Manitoba., I am now rereading the series and I have NEVER reread any book! My second favorite reading is old quilting magazines and books.

  11. They are all beautiful quilts! Your fabric pull for swooning again is lovely. Will make a gorgeous quilt. Would this Swoon be for you or to give away to someone?
