WIP Wednesday 10-24-12

 Busy busy busy!!  I've been working away on lots of projects!  Plus I got a job helping at my favorite quilt shop and I started on Saturday!  It's like a dream :)

Finished - 
  • Leaf Quilt - I finished my leaf quilt!!!  If you follow me on Instagram I shared a pic but here's a sneak peek from when I was binding.  I'm going to do a whole post on it on Friday for Blogger's Quilt Festival.

  • 4x5 Bee Block - Finished another one of my blocks!  Only three more to go!
4x5 Bee - Hive #6 - For mollyjolly

In-Progress - None of those projects got any love.  I've been on a starting new projects kick!!

New - 
  •  Mystery Quilt - This one won't be revealed until after Christmas!  But I'm using Marmalade so it's wonderful :)  Except for all the trimming! So much trimming!
New project! #marmalade

  • Birds & Bees Quilt - I started this quilt last night!  I don't need more projects but I had just worked out all the math for a pattern for my mom and I wanted to make a quilt for the Tula Pink Sew Along so I decided to get to work!

  • Weekender Bag - I'm going for it! I'm going to join in for The Long Weekend make a weekender bag.  I am going the scrappy quilted patchwork route using Chicopee and Ohio Star blocks.  I'm having terrible luck getting the pattern - the last two I've ordered have both been out of stock but not marked on their website!
  • A Walk in the Woods Baby Quilt - I took two charm packs and started working on a pinwheel baby quilt.  I made all the HSTs and trimmed them, now I just need to put the top together!

Announcements - Here are a few tidbits for you!
  •  Be sure to stop here (or at Heidi's) tomorrow since it's our first feature post for The 100 Day Hustle!
  • Have you ever wanted to win a traveling stash box?  I'm giving one away here.
  • Kristy & Alyce have put together a great Christmas Blog Hop and I'm one of stops!  It'll start on November 1st and go for 13 days.  There are 25 bloggers sharing projects made with some Christmas themed patterns Kristy & Alyce designed.

What have you been working on?  As always, linking up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced.


  1. I love the tangerine and aqua star block. It strikes like a star! Great job!

  2. I can't wait to see your Walk in the Woods quilt. I love that line. Good luck on the BQF entry! I keep debating whether or not I want to enter something.

  3. I never thought to turn two charm packs into HSTs then pinwheels - cuts down on some cutting doesn't it? I am excited for the Hustle post too. Will check back Friday for the leafy post!
    thanks for sharing

  4. Really love your 4x5 bee block! I can't get enough orange and teal/aqua! Is is paper pieced?

  5. A job at a quilt shop? Oh, I dont think I could stand it - I'd be too easilt distracted. That bee block looks lovely and totally complicated.

  6. Working in a quilt shop, talk about dream job! I hope you get staff discount ;-) And what beautiful blocks too.

  7. Very cool blocks! I'm also excited to see your finished leaf quilt. :)

  8. Looking forward to seeing your quilt on Friday ; )
