W.I.P. Wednesday

OMG!! It's Wednesday again. I can't believe how quick the week has came around again. So I'm heading over to visit Lee at Freshly Pieced for another W.I.P Wednesday.

This week has just flown by for me. 

But I do have some achievements for sure.

1. I finished piecing together my Christmas placemats for a swap. I just have to baste, quilt and bind them. They were so much fun and a Moda Bake Shop recipe. Stay tuned for some photos.

2. I took the Jelly Roll 1600 Quilt for a trial run. I had heaps of fun. I'm a slow sewer so it took me nearly 3 hours to piece it together. But its definitely fun and will be thinking about using the concept for a quilting weekend I'm organising.

3. A non quilting achievement this week. We have redesigned our kitchen and added more cupboard space. It looks amazing and to make it even better we were able to match our previous cupboards and bench tops with the original kitchen we put in nearly 5 years ago. Woo Hoo. It feels like a completely different room. DH and I spent a few hours reorganising today and its feels great to have it done.

4. I finished off my friendship bracelets and they are currently on route to the United States. I hope that my swap partners like them. They were so fun to make.

5. I also worked on some hexagon flowers that are going to be added to a special gift. I will post some pictures when I have finialised the gift.


  1. You've been a busy woman! Do you have before and after shots of your kitchen? I love remodels. So refreshing!

  2. Awesome quilt. And I love the bracelets...can't wait to be wearing mine (: Thank you!

  3. Congratulations on your kitchen! Remodeling is always exciting, but usually it's the most fun when it is over!

  4. Oh wow! I'm doing the jelly roll 1600 with our quilting guild in a few weeks. Glad to see it went over well. Nice job and your bracelets are cute too!

  5. I think my quilt guild is going to do the Jelly Roll 1600 quilt. Looks fun!

  6. You've certainly had a busy week. Congrats on the kitchen. I'd love to add more cupboard space over here but that's a someday thing right now.

  7. This last week has been really fast for me, too. I nearly had a heart attack when I realized what day it was. I'm so far behind! I'll probably live, though. :P

    Jelly Roll 1600 Quilt - I would never have thought to put those colors together. I love them! You have a great eye for color.

    Congratulations on your kitchen. I hope it's perfect!

  8. Love that strip quilt! Such a great design. And congrats on the new kitchen! How exciting! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

  9. I want to see pictures of your kitchen. I am looking for ideas for mine :)

  10. Your quilt top is fun, that pattern is quite striking!
