Work-In-Progress Wednesday

When I first starting quilting (a whopping 10 months ago!), I only worked on one project at a time.  I don't seem to have that problem anymore.

Lee at Freshly Pieced has begun a Work-in-Progress Wednesday feature that after the inventory I just did, sounds like exactly what I need to get my projects done.  Thanks Lee!

Skirt for me/Anna Maria Horner Voile
Decided to try this with the Stop Staring and Start Sewing Essential A-Line Skirt Tutorial back in the summer.   
Just can't seem to want to finish this.

Bluebells Quilt
Will probably finish quilting this today/tomorrow and then add the binding this weekend.  Need to get this in the mail by next Tuesday.

Quilt for MIL 
Quilt #2 for MIL for Christmas.  Remember where I changed my mind?  This is the new fabric and I sure hope they work together.  This will be my first attempt to create a quilt with fabrics from different lines.

Bag for me with Innocent Crush
Can't you all tell I'm a AMH freak?  I could not resist purchasing some of her new fabric for a bag for myself.

Blocks for quilt along
Why does Google turn my photo around?  Makes it look like I was on the ceiling or something.  Three completed blocks.

Punctuation by American Jane
Oh, those darn Deals of the Day at the Missouri Star Quilt Co. Couldn't resist the Punctuation Charm Pack for $2.50ish and of course I had to throw in a Honey Bun.  I unraveled it so I could play with the fabric.

I hate this one
Truly, I do hate this quilt top, but only because I don't know what I am doing.  These are jelly roll strips sewn together...should be easy, right?  No.  Because it is very wonky.  I bought this from FQS at 40% off so it was a deal, but I can't figure out how to fix it.

Christmas Tree Skirt
I've had this fabric for honestly, 10 years.  Finally sewed both pieces during the summer and just need some decorative braid, etc. to finish it.  

Now I really need to put the sewing machine and the camera away and get to my history research!  


  1. Love the new fabric for your MIL's quilt! Those Riley Black circle prints are so versatile, I love them. And that Innocent Crush bag is going to be SO GREAT. I can't wait to see it.

    Don't forget to link up at my blog! I don't see a link on there from you right now. Thanks for joining in, see you next week!

  2. How quickly we get sucked project always leads to another. Love your Bluebells Quilt.

  3. I feel your pain with the multiple projects! I am sure you will get them all finished in time! Good luck with the Tuesday deadline! I can't wait to see your Innocent Crush bag. I love those fabrics!

  4. You have some fun projects going on! What a great deal on the Punctuation Charm pack.

    I have about 5 tree skirts in various states of completion in a box somewhere. I bought the fabric at an after Christmas sale 6 years ago. I was going to make tree skirts to sell but...maybe my family will get them as Christmas presents - next year. :)

  5. The one you hate is the one I love! From the photo I dont see anything wonky about it.. If you have a longarm, load it and quilt it with the Feather Strippy Bar pantograph. :)

    I only listed one UFO on my linky...but I will have another one for next Wednesday,... and the next... and the next... you get my drift I am sure... LOL

  6. Definitely a lot of progress there! Sew much fun!!!
