WIP Wednesday

It’s been ages since I’ve written up a WIP Wednesday post. And that’s mainly because I haven’t had any progress to share, but with some recent work to my sewing space (more on that later), I’ve managed to get some work done over the last few weeks. I made up a baby quilt for a Read More …

WIP Wednesday

It’s been a busy sewing week here at MiMP.  I started and completed my final Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge quilt.  This month was snowball blocks, and the only color I had left to work with was yellow, so that made for an interesting project. I also started making blocks for my creepy Read More …

Anna’s Crazy Christmas Blocks – A Progress Post

It looks like I am a bad influence on Anna. I’ve convinced her to try her hand an making crazy patch blocks, and I have to say that I am impressed with her progress so far. Her blocks remind me a lot of the ones in my first crazy quilt. She told me that I Read More …

Easter Quilt Fabric and Embellishment Selections

It’s not even Halloween yet, and I’m already thinking about Easter. That probably seems odd to most people, but as a quilter, I’ve learned to think ahead about holidays. Some projects come together really quickly, but others take much longer – so I like to start early when I can. With the completion of my Read More …

Using Up Christmas Scraps

Once I finished up my Christmas Crazy Quilt last week, I realized that I had a ridiculous amount of scraps left over from that quilt, so I’m using up my scraps in the best way I know how – more crazy quilt goodness. To start, I was inspired by Margreet de Reus’s Christmas Mobile Ornaments Read More …
