WIP Wednesday

I just found out about Work in Progress Wednesday through some blogs I recently started reading and so I thought since (a) I love to make list, (b) I find when I put it out there on the blog I am more likely to finish it, and (c) I love linky parties it might be just the ticket to a regularly schedule blog post that actually chronicles more than just a finished project.

Hot at the Machine:
Spring Weekends- I'm doing a little modification on this quilt top.  I'm going to make one more block and changed the layout to 6 by 6.  It will be a little shorter but also wider which I appreciate.  I found a great vintage sheet to use for the back so this one is almost ready for a little basting spray and then quilting.

Mod Times Quilt Along-This is a new quilt along and this week is all about cutting the fabrics and getting ready to go.  Since I decided I wanted to make my rectangles rainbow string blocks I am working on putting those together first.  I still need to cut the other pieces but I have my solids all ready to go.

The start of my rainbow blocks.

Central Park Quilt:  This quilt would be progressing nicely.  But I need to order another jelly roll (bad math skills) and some fabric for the back and then figure out who I want to have quilt it.  It is a little big for my home machine so I am pretty sure I'll be sending this one out to be done.

Awaiting TLC:
Freshcuts Square Dance: This one is at the long arm quilters.  She is having her studio remolded and I'm not sure where this one is on her to do list but hopefully I will have it back before to long.

Fussy Cut Bee Log Cabin:  While I have a lot of bee blocks from last year I'm not ready to commit to all of them yet.  I broke this one out first because I have a bit of a plan for it and I think I can make it happen.  I'm on a push to get some things finished because I've made a deal with myself that I won't be buying any more fabric until I use up some of what I have.

While my overall to do list is much longer than this I wanted to start small.  Sometimes my list gets a little muddled with things I want to do and not just the things that are actually started or that I have actual materials for.

Be sure to check out what everyone else is doing over here.


  1. What beautiful fabrics!
    All of your quilts in progress look great!

  2. Smart to keep your list focused! All of the "want tos" can get distracting.

    Your Spring Weekends quilt is going to be GLORIOUS.

  3. That Mod Times Quilt Along looks great! I have to go check that out! Everything looks beautiful!

  4. Very cute so far!! I haven't decided whether or not I'm joining in the Mod Times QAL, but it is a lovely design. I love your Spring Weekends project so far, it's looking lovely, and so are your rainbow blocks!

  5. Very nice WIPs. I love the string blocks for the Mod Times QAL...great idea!

  6. I always think it's much more manageable to keep the To-Do list small even if the one in my head is large!

  7. Oooh, I spotted your scrappy Mod Times blocks on Flickr earlier, what a great idea! They'll make a fabulous quilt. Spring Weekends is pretty too. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
