WIP Wednesday #6

So what can I tell you about my works in progress that you don't already know?  Well here is a little look at what's been going on in my sewing room.  Sorry if some of it sounds redundant.

Farmer's Wife Quilt Along: I am currently a little ahead on this one.  I have a total of 15.5 blocks made and according to the schedule we should be at 12 this week.  I have to say I am really digging this quilt and the more blocks I make the happier I am with my choice to use the Fresh Cottons.  (Thanks L for helping me pinpoint what it was I liked so I knew what to do).

Freshcuts Square Dance: Currently working on the binding on this one.  I can't wait to show this one off but I have a little more work to do on it first. 

Spring Weekends: This one is about half way quilted and now I'm waiting on thread.  I really do need to order that.

Other than that things have been a little slow around the sewing room.  I took advantage of my time home alone this weekend to give parts of the house a little deep cleaning.  How is it that a fan in constant motion collects so much dust?

If you happen to be looking for new WIP to add to your list (I keep seeing this and making plans to join even though I already have a ton of projects) here are a few new quilt alongs floating through blogland.  Keep in mind this is not a comprehensive list because in all honesty I just can't keep up.

Amanda Jean over at Crazy Mom Quilts is kicking off a 36 Patch Quilt along in celebration of her birthday.  I've been meaning to make one of those beautiful 9 patch quilts that she did so 36 is just as good, right?  It's really just 4 9 patches sewn together.

Katie, Faith, and Lee have teamed up to host the Summer Sampler Series.  This one looks like a lot of fun and a good opportunity to learn some new skills.  I am thinking about doing this one in solids as a quilt for charity.  One of my goals for this year was to make a donate a few quilts and so far I haven't done that and seeing as how it is July already (what happen to 2011?) I better get busy accomplishing some of those goals.

The girls over at QuiltStory are hosting Rockin' Robin and if you need incentive to join in on another project they are giving away some great prizes for those who have completed quilt tops in the flickr pool by the end of the quilt along.  You can find more details about this one over here.

Kaelin over at The Plaid Scottie is kicking off a double wedding ring quilt along.  This is a quilt that I have always wanted to try and so I am finding this one to be extremely tempting as well.  So many choices and not nearly enough hours in the day. 

 Check out whatever one else is up to over here.  But be fair warned if I haven't already given you at least one more project you want to work on you are sure to find inspiration by following the link.


  1. Hehe - I have a quilt at a stopping point because of thread, too - which also would get here faster if I would get around to ordering it. . . ;D

  2. I really like your colour choices in both the quilts. You are charging ahead with the FW blocks. I won't be joining in on that one unfortunately.


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