WIP Wednesday...

It's been over a week since my last blog post! Doesn't mean I haven't been busy! It's Wednesday - the perfect day for catching up and linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced!

The Weekender Travel Bag... I've had the pattern and fabric for over 6 months. My plan was to find a chunk of time and power through it. Obviously that's not working, so I've come up with a new plan. Do a few steps each week with the goal of completing it by Christmas. Hold me to it - please! So this week, I'm cutting it out and making the piping.

Camille started a quilt along on Instagram of her Round and Round pattern. It's one I've had on my list, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get started. I'm doing something a little different from my typical white background ~ Moda Bella solid in Breeze. It's kind of a minty, green/blue, aqua-y color. One block down...

I'm on a Thimble Blossoms roll and also started Starlight. I thought it would be a nice stash quilt...

and I'm enjoying the scrappiness of it!

And I finally finished my Bangles quilt. This one deserves it's own post and I'll share more when our weather improves so I can get some better shots. I'm so happy with how it turned out ~ the fabrics, the Y-seam piecing, the backing and the quilting. More details to come!

Be sure to check out all the other WIPs over at Freshly Pieced!


  1. Best of luck on your weekender! I'm still terrified to even try it. Everything else you have going on looks incredible! I am loving your background color for the round and round.

  2. Gorgeous! I am wanting to make this quilt too.

  3. I love everything you're working on! And the idea of doing a little bit each week on your weekender is awesome :)

  4. your starlight quilt is so fun! love the fabric!
    Now go work on that weekender! (and I am excited to see your Bangles)

  5. I love the round and round! reminds me a bit of flying swallows I made for my first baby, but twirlier :)
