WIP Wednesday

Hi all!  Just wanted to join in with Lee's WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced this week!  It's been a long week, already, and I just wanna take a nap :o)

Here is some of my progress!  First up is my paper pieced quilt....I am up to 74 stars now!!  I estimated needing 100 total, so that's only 26 left!  I cannot believe I'm so close.  I plan on making up a ton of stars this weekend.  I'm taking a short business trip to Chicago, so that means quality time on the plane and in the hotel room after hours.  I'd be lyin if I said I wasn't just a bit excited about spending 2 nights in a QUIET room....heaven!!

I started using this leather thimble at the start of this project.  It's looking a bit worn out just in that one little spot, but still works like a champ.  I know it's more cumbersome, but it's my favorite kind of thimble!

Next on the WIP list this week is a HUGE Queen-sized Swoon quilt. It's raining this morning, so no full-length picture until this afternoon {hope}. I finally got the quilting done last night around 12:15.  It's taken a lot of hours and gobs of thread, but when I showed my husband, he told me "I think you are the most amazing quilter in the world"  Talk about *swoon*  Love that man!!  We slept under it last night, even though the binding isn't finished and it was heaven :o)

Head on over to Lee's and take a look at all the other amazing projects!!
