WIP Wednesday 10-10-12

I'm not sure if it's the weather, the fact that I've been all caught up on housework or just pure luck but I've been having a great week of sewing!  Not that it doesn't always, but it's been making me feel extra happy
and chipper and so I love sewing :)

Let's see what's on the list this week:

Finished - 
  • The Mary Kate Experience T-Shirt Quilt - So happy to have this one done and delivered.  Her mom is taking it down to her at college this weekend - can't wait to see what she thinks!
Loads of Pictures HERE
  • Bee Blocks - I'm trying really hard to be less of a procrastinator!!

In Progress - 
  • Leaf Quilt - Finished the top, ordered the backing and am hoping to wrap it up this weekend!! 
I love making quilts!!
  •   Double Wedding Ring - I finally sat down and finished piecing all of my arches!  I also ordered a polka dot print for the background which came this week so on to the next step of cutting all of those curved pieces.

New - 
  • 4x5 Bee - I joined the 4x5 Bee for the Fall quarter and I'm leading the paper pieced hive!  I picked my block, the Supernova from Craftsy, and decided last night to try it out by making my block first.  This one is a doosie!!  So many pieces but I love the end result!!  Now to make some more for my hivemates :)

Loads of seam ripping and one flub up but I love it :)

Whew!  I did a lot of sewing!!  What did you work on?  As always, linking up over at Freshly Pieced.

PS - Are you #notgoingtosewingsummit?  I wanted to go so bad but kind of forgot about it and neglected to save any money to be able to go so I'll have to try next year!  Amy of AmyLouWho is throwing an Instagram #notgoingtosewingsummit sewing party this weekend so join in if you're at home sewing!!  I'm @kelseysews on Instagram.

Happy Sewing!!

  3. I love your leaf quilt top! The fall colors work great with the traditional block. Yummy!

  4. Love that leaf quilt! I think I may join in on the #notgoingtosewingsummit party since I am not going. I'm new to sewing and blogging and I live in PA, sooooooo actually going to Sewing Summit is quite a stretch for me lol!

  5. where to start! Everything is so so great! Can't wait to see more of your DWR, they are so worth all the work and effort! I want to be in your hive, that block is a stunner!

  6. You have gotten so much done! I'm not going to sewing summit either. NJ is kinda far and I can't travel at the moment so I will be home working away on my hustle list.

  7. I love your t-shirt quilt! I hope the "Ithaca is Gorges" t-shirt made the final cut. :)

  8. I love that four-patch of brown & white leaves amung the others in your maple leaf quilt :) I'm notgoingtosewingsummit, too :)

  9. I love your leaf quilt! And I can't wait to see your dwr quilt. I keep wanting to make one but I'm a bit intimidated. Maybe seeing yours will motivate me :)
