WIP Wednesday

So, I am actually alive, and haven't fallen off the face of the earth!  I have not been able to get myself back into my schedule of pre-vacation and have been trying all summer long.  Plus with Instagram, it's easier to just post pics with short descriptions.  Anyway, I'm back :o)

I have several projects in the works and have finished several things since the last WIP Wednesday.  I finished up my daughter's Nancy Drew quilt, finished a baby quilt for a dear friend's new baby girl (will post pic later :o), and got my chicopee quilt actually quilted.

I didn't want to take away from the fabric, so I just quilted in the ditch on this one.  Didn't want Nancy's head quilted all over, lol! 

Binding is attached, just need to stitch it down on the back.

My newest project has been this spiderweb quilt.  I have always wanted to make one, just never got around to making the template, etc.  I found the foundation pieces and the template for the kite shape on Missouri Star Quilt Co. and had to get going!  It goes together very quick, but this is small so far.  If I stop here, it will only be about 36 inches square.  Nice baby quilt, but I kinda think it needs to be bigger!

I have made a little progress on my EPP project.  I was trying to get one row done each week, just picking it up when I was in the car, waiting on my girls, or travelling. This is the progress so far!  I am loving it, even though it's very busy!

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced!


  1. Love the quilting in your chicopee quilt and isn't Nordika to die for?

  2. Love your Nancy Drew quilt! Such a great way to show off the fabrics!

    I am in the middle of a spider web quilt also. I love how different every one of these ends up.

    Looking forward to watching yours grow!

  3. Beautiful projects! Your daughter looks like she loves her quilt. I really like the hexagon quilt.

    I love your EPP project. Your story reminds me of my mom and her "stop light sweaters." She had a knitting project she kept in the car to work on when she was stopped at red lights, waiting for kids at school, etc. etc.

  4. That chicopee triangle quilt is just awesome! And I love the spider web quilt too.

  5. The big hexie quilt is gorgeous as is the spiderweb quilt!

  6. Wow, they're all gorgeous. Love the fabrics you use.

  7. Beautiful quilts! I can see you have great taste in fabrics!! I really like the Nancy Drew quilt, you've done an excellent job of using a novelty fabric without it being overdone.

  8. Hola que tal? Me he dado una vuelta por tu blog y me encanta, me quedo por aquí y te sigo. Te dejo el enlace del mío por si te apetece pegarle un vistazo, espero que te guste
    Un saludo
