Work in Progress Wednesday!

It’s finally Wednesday.  Which means we’re halfway to Friday!  I have quite a few quilty goals for this weekend, including, most importantly, teaching a friend to piece a baby quilt.  I am beyond excited.

But, until then, it’s still Wednesday, and I do have some works in progress.


Even though these are the January block for the Sister’s Ten BOM, I finished them on February 2nd.  Honestly, this is still impressive for this Queen of Procrastination.  AND, I plan on doing the February blocks this weekend – say, What?  Ahead of schedule?  Me?

Here are the two Grandmother Frame  blocks I’ve made:



I am loving the way Amy Butler’s Lark fabric collection in Dreamer (below) is playing out in these blocks.  I think I might be obsessed with Amy Butler.  I am.


Other than that, the only progress I’ve made on the Love Lives Here quilt is cutting the last 9 blocks.  Which is work, but it still looks like this:


I. must. finish. this. soon.

Like, by Sunday.  (Lofty goal there, go-getter.)

And, onto some exciting news.  I’m getting fabric.  FREE FABRIC.  Thanks to Caroline over at Sew Can She I have a $50.00 gift card to Fat Quarter Shop.  Now the problem is choosing.  How does one choose?  I’ll end up choosing way more – but still saving money, right?

Right now I’m sitting on buying the new line from Ty Pennington (because I love him) and this line is insanely gorgeous.  Check out his Fall Impressions line:


And, while we’re at it – here’s a Work in Progress – in my brain!  I want to make a giant chevron quilt with this fabric:


That way I can see the fabrics in huge chunks – because I’m obsessed.

So, not a lot of progress this week, but a lot of ideas going on.  Including researching even more to make…  Go. buy. this. book. now.


Happy Quilting and go check out the other gorgeous projects over at Freshly Pieced!

  1. Stopping by from WIP Wednesday, love your Lark blocks- I love the bright vivid colors of her lines:) and lucky you– a $50 gift cert- have fun shopping!

  2. yay you! i can’t wait to see what you get with your gift card! also I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE the finished love lives here quilt it’s too pretty.

  3. I have a hard time choosing fabric too because there is so much amazing stuff out there. Thanks for showing these blocks-I just saw the BOM on another blog that was linked up to WIP Wednesday. 1st time I saw them and now I am in love with that quilt. I have some Heirloom Fat Quarters still in my sewing room so I am thinking about using them and joining in on this BOM.

    • Greta, I almost got the Heirloom line for the BOM. They would make such a great quilt! I hope you do join in – and share your blocks! Your baby quilt is awesome, and I love how the squares are all different sizes. Love the trees. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Congratulations! and Ty had me at, “Move that bus!!” lol

    For someone who is newer to quilting, these blocks are pieced fantastically! Well done!

  5. Loving your quilt blocks & the Amy Butler looks fabulous. Good luck with your self imposed Sunday deadline.

  6. I came to your blog from WIP Wednesday and I’ve loved looking around! Your Amy Butler blocks are beautiful. Good luck finishing your quilty project by Sunday. Everybody needs a lofty goal every once and a while, right?

    • Thank you for stopping by, Melanie. WiP wednesday is my favorite – I get so much inspiration from all of the blogs. I am loving your stockings!

  7. Your grandmother blocks are beautiful! I love how bold Amy Butler fabrics are and the vibrant colors really pop out against the white. Good luck on your Sunday goal, the quilt is going to look fantastic. I really want to make that quilt on the front cover of Modern Designs now!

    Thanks for your comment on my Starburst Quilt blocks. Big blocks seem like a lot less work, even though there are still a lot of pieces! I think there are a few more weeks left in it, so it is definitely not too late to join. I am on the slow side and I’ve spent only a few hours per assignment (3 so far). Chain piecing is my BFF!
