WIP Wednesday

Hey all!  I hope you've had a great week so far...can't believe it's already Wednesday again (I think I say that every week!).  It's been busy around here, but we are making time to slow down.  The girlies are getting to the end of the school year, which means end of year testing, final fund raiser, and all of the end of year activities.  I just cannot believe I will have a 4th and 2nd grader soon...doesn't seem possible!

*wiping tears* Okay, I'm good!  On to the progress for this week in the world of quilting!

Swoon....finally got it basted.  It took me a couple of hours of moving my dining room furniture and pinning on my knees to accomplish this.  There has got to be an easier way!!

Last night, I started quilting this bad boy.  I wanted to do something special, more than just an all over pattern.  Next time I think that way for a 90 inch quilt, shoot me!  I have quilted all the "flowers" and have started on the white space....10 bobbins later.  As much as it's a bear, I am loving how it's coming together!

This quilt is making me want a long arm quilting machine in a bad way!

Still plugging along with my EPP real progress with that since I've spent the last 2 nights working on Swoon baby above!  Here is a pic of the itty-bitty stitches...I'm weird, I know.

Linking up to Freshly Pieced!  Go on over and see other amazing projects!

  2. Your quilting looks awesome!!!

  3. Swoon quilt is looking great! Basting has to be my least favorite part of quilting! Too much furniture movement and I always end up with bruises all over my knees.

  4. Your quilting is absolutely gorgeous! and yes, I'd like also a longarm quilting machine ;)

  5. I am getting ready to quilt a 96 AND 1/2" square quilt myself and I have the crazy idea as well to do many designs in one. Maybe some hand quilting too! Crazy right!!

    I love your quilting designs and those are all freehand,no traced lines?

    Basting is a chore for me too...I keep thinking I need to invest in some knee pads;)

  6. I love how you're quilting your Swoon quilt. Wow...that is a big quilt to do with a regular sewing machine. You're doing a great job!

  7. Your Swoon is stunning. Basting a big quilt is always a hard task. I love the way you are quilting it. Well done.

  8. Love the quilting! It's looks great! I can't wait to see it finished :)
