WIP Wednesday

I’m super excited to have made progress on the baby communique quilt again. I was able to piece a backing from all of the leftover bits of the fabric I had purchased to make the front. I crumb pieced all of the leftover bits of fabric from the front into sections and added the uncut…

midred on baby communique (fishy) flimsy

I’m super proud of myself because I made a lot of progress on Mil’s baby communique quilt this week. One whole side of the quilt has been pieced together for about a week and I had all of the solid blocks for the other side sewn together. All I had to do was to put…

mildred with part of baby communique quilt

It’s slow with the tiny human as an assistant, but I managed to piece together the top left section on my communique baby quilt. It measures 22×22-inches, which isn’t much, but it makes Milli very happy. I’m hoping that I can distract her with this finished section while I work on the next one. What…

blue fabric for baby communique quilt

I’m taking a break from last week’s work in progress until I can pick out backing fabric and thread for quilting it. So I finally cut into the stack of blue fabrics I’ve been hoarding to make a sample of the Baby Communique Quilt. I started out by cutting out all of the strips and…

However for this one, I did the blocks at half-size, so they finish at 4-inches instead of…

quilt blocks

I finished the 2 quilts in the last couple weeks, and I’m super proud of myself, but I still have many quilts that have been in a giant UFO stack for the last couple of years. With fall, and Halloween coming up soon, I decided to pull out the spooky wall hanging quilt I’d left…

WIP Wednesday – Photobook Edition

I’ve spent some spare time over the last couple of days scanning in old family photos for a photo book that I’m working on for my mom. It was her Mother’s Day present this year, but we had to tell her about it, as we needed the photos from her, and we are including my…

WIP Wednesday – Star Blocks

I made a bit more progress on my Fuzzy Duckling quilt over the weekend.  I managed to make time to complete 4 more of the star blocks, giving me 5 finished.  That’s exactly half of them!  The only problem was it took me about 3 hours to cut and piece them all. I seem to…
