WIP Wednesday

Okay, how did a week pass by already??  I have been working like crazy on my EPP quilt...and it's coming along!  I have spent every spare minute I have in my day to work on it. I was trying to get it to a finished status so I could baste it over the weekend....foot surgery scheduled for next Tuesday and I know I will be next to useless for a few days.  Thought it would be nice to start the hand-quilting while I am laid up.  Anyway, I don't think I am going to make that timeline...sad!  Oh well, I can still work on it and get it finished up!  I still have a huge stack of fabrics to make more diamonds, but I gotta be honest, I'm kinda done mentally....it is obviously not done yet and I don't know how much bigger I want to make it.  I love, love, love this quilt, but I want it done already!

this is what happens every time I lay our a quilt...the cat immediately lays on it :o)  at least she likes my quilts!

and here she is again....my EPP quilting buddy!



Here she is....101 stars big!!  My goal was 100 stars, and now I am not sure when to stop.


I LOVE how the back looks...all those itty bitty stitches, holy crap!


I'm linking up this week to Lee's at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday:

  1. Beautiful EPP quilt! I'm doing one, too, but have also reached the "I'm tired of it" stage.

  4. That's amazing! I can see that you might get tired of it after so much work but it is wonderful.

    I had to shoo my cat this morning too when I was taking pictures of a quilt. She was trying it get on it as soon as I started to lay it out.

  10. Oh no keep it going. You will be glad you did in the end! Beautiful quilt by the way. Don't worry we all have those little furry kids that can not resist rolling on a new quilt. Also your cat almost looks like my cat.

  13. Gorgeous! I love it. I say finish off the bottom row and call it good. It looks quite large. Do you use a whipstitch to stitch the stars together? I am just starting my first EPP projects and am not sure what the best way would be to join them. I have heard a lot of different options.

  14. My cat is that way too. Whenever there is a quilt out or I am trying to work on quilting something she is right there, laying in the middle of it! Your quilt is absolutely lovely!
