W.I.P. Wednesday

Hip Hip Hooray....its W.I.P Wednesday.

So I have had a busy week. This week also happen to involve family time with my in-laws as they are returning from their 3 month travelling around the western parts of Australia. My little ones were so excited about their grandparents visiting and we sad to see them return home this morning.

But I did happen to make a start on Archie's Quilt this week using the fabulous pattern from Moda Bake Shop Easy Strawberry Fields Brick Quilt. I have loved how the jelly roll scraps from Wee Play have come together with some natural homespun. The quilt is going to be gorgeous.

Secondly, to fulfill my addiction to paper piecing, I have been secretly working on some snowflakes or stars whichever you like to see them. I'm using 3/4 inch hexagons. They are just devine and I plan to make some more and use them in a baby quilt for a very special friend. Stay tuned for further additions.

My W.I.P Wednesday List:
1. Naked Bed Challenge  - top needs to be finished by 1st June (looks like it won't be a finished quilt top as I haven't even started the sewing yet :( )
2. Snickerdoodle Paper Bag Swap (awaiting my paper bag goodies)
3. Hannah's quilt
4. Will's floor mat
5. Massachusetts Star Block for next Quilt Block Swap -June 2011
6. Friendship Block swap with my local quilting group
7. Friendship Challenge - quilt to be finished by September 2011
8. Archie's quilt
9. IPad and Accessories Case


  1. Fun on the hexagon shapes....I just quilted a customer top with hexagons set in blocks and made them into soccer balls (vs. a flower). Fun! Your color selections would really work for soccer balls.

  2. The hexagons are lovely. Your are so patient, I just got tired of mine and now they are hiding in a corner...

  3. That baby quilt is going to be amazing! They are fun!! I am working on some hexagons too!

  4. I just love paper piecing. At the moment, hexagons are my thing no matter the size. It was my saving grace when my son was born because it was the only thing I could do between breastfeeding.

  5. Nice work, the hexagons are going to be very striking!

  6. Oooooo - I love your snowflakes!

  7. I am very interested to see what you do when you get to the iPad cover.
    Shame it is last on the list.


I love to see what people write. Please leave me a comment.
