W.I.P Wednesday

Today is Wednesday and instead of being away on my family holiday, we are at home as our holiday was cancelled due to floods. Not at my town but where we were planning to stay. So some parts of Australia are experiencing flooding and parts of US have experience tornadoes. For all my friends out there, I'm thinking of you and hope that you are all well and safe.

So I've decided to hook up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for W.I.P Wednesday. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Lee in being a finalist for the Modern Mini Challenge that was hosted by Ellison Lane Quilts. Your mini quilt is beautiful. You definitely deserved to be a finalist. Good luck in the votes.

Now for my week. 

I managed to finish off my Modern Mini Challenge quilt too. I made the Octagonal Orb block using Tula Pink fabric with Kona solids. You can read about it here. I had fun making this challenge and I pushed myself to think outside of my box.

I also managed to finish off another Rose Star Block in civil war fabrics. I have completed 3 now and number 4 is nearly completed. 


Miss A has a birthday party to attend this weekend, for the big sister of the little man who received Tractor Derby. I have a W.I.P quilt just waiting to be finished off and be given as a present. Keep posted for further pics and another finished quilt.

So head over and visit Lee for W.I.P Wednesday and see what else she has been up to over the past week.
