WIP Wednesday #2

I can't believe that it is already Wednesday again.  Where did the second half of last week and the weekend go?  I didn't spend much time with Bertha after Wednesday last week but I did manage to fit in a little sewing time.  I finished putting together the Central Park quilt top and now this one is awaiting fabric for the backing.  I do plan to send this one out to be quilted.  It is on the larger size measuring in at about 73 by 73 inches right now.  This quilt was a lot of fun to make and it went together really quickly.  I think it would make a great gift for someone.

My Spring Weekends quilt made little progress this week.  I decided to do a little reworking on this one and make it an even 6 by 6 rows.  I found this great fitted sheet at a local thrift store.  Sorry for the crummy photo.  The colors are actually a bit brighter in real life.  I've never used a sheet on one of my quilts before and I am a little nervous about how well it will hold up since I don't think this particular sheet is 100% cotton but rather a poly/cotton blend.

Freshcuts Square Dance is still at the long arm and I have yet to continue progress on Twisted Fandango.  I am still working on my string blocks for the Mod Times Quilt Along but hope to get them done as well as the next step of the quilt along this week.  I did decided on my fabric choices for my bag for the swap I am in so hopefully I will get some progress made on that soon as well.  So even though I don't have any finishes this week it is nice to be able to share where I am in the process with several projects.  Be sure to check out what everyone else is up to over here.


  1. looks like a nice quilt. I am not sure about a poly blend sheet for backing, I have used 100% cotton and they have worked great for backings and lasted for a long time so far.good luck with it.

  2. Love the Central Park top. So pretty!

  3. Hello! That's beautiful quilt! Lovely colours and great pattern! Sunny wishes from Crete! Teje
