WIP Wednesday

Here's my current WIPs. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Enjoy! :)


Misfits' Doll Quilt.
My machine started giving me fits during quilting so I gave my machine a break from the fancy stitch I was using and put together this quick jelly roll quilt...

I plan to make this into a table cloth. It still needs to be ironed flat, then I will back it with flannel (no batting).


ABSS Teardrop Bag
This month I am providing the prize for the random winner for all completed bags. You still have 2 days to get your post linked up. So finish up your bag & head on over to My Crafty Crap to share.


I won these lovely pincushions & 2 solid Moda jelly rolls on Talkin' Tuesday from the wonderful Aubrey a couple weeks. Aren't they the cutest? :)


And this gorgeous pouch showed up in the mail from Lizze of Wandering Stars. Now I need to get her sketchbook sent out.


My LQS/work, Lickety Stitch Quilts, has gotten some new, fun pre-cuts in from Moda last week.


I thought it would be fun to give away a charm pack of the new Little Apples by Aneela Hoey. And to sweeten the giveaway I'll throw in the scraps from my Sherbet Pips ABSS Teardrop Bag. Just leave a comment telling me your plans for the rest of the summer, sewing or otherwise.

If you'd like a second chance become a follower and leave another comment.

*Whoops! I forgot to mention this giveaway will be open until next Thursday, July 14th.*

Also, be sure to visit Freshly Pieced to see everyone else's WIPs for the week.

Selina Marie said...

I love all that you have been working on! I've been thinking of making a jelly roll race quilt. Maybe that will be my plans for the summer =)

Natasha said...

My summer (or at least July) will be filled with packing boxes. We are moving August 1. After that....you guessed it, my summer will be filled with UNPACKING the boxes. Hope to get sewing in there somewhere.

Love your bag :-) such cute fabrics :-)
Your doll quilt is beautiful!
My stitching plans for the summer are quite simple, I just aim to keep up to date with the Skill Builder Sampler. On the non stitching front I hope to be spending lots of time out in the sunshine with my kids :-)

Great giveaway, and maybe you can answer my question I've been dying to know...does little apples match sherbet pips? Like do they go together or not at all?

Jessica said...

I am going to keep working on a blue and cream scrap quilt that I started a few weeks ago.

I am leaving in a week to go to Alaska to visit family! But sewing wise, this summer I plan on finishing a bird quilt I started last summer, making a garden apron for a friend, and making a navy and pink quilt!

So far we've had lots and lots of family visiting. We've played as hard as we could and just finished up with a extended 3 day camping family reunion. I have one more project-teaching a hat class and then I hope to SEW! I have 2 quilts that I really must get done and lots of scraps that are begging to be used.

stephmabry said...

love the colors in your first photo!

plans for the summer... enjoying my new sewing machine by (hopefully) finishing up the six quilts I have in various stages of completion, with a one week break to visit family on the other side of the country!

Well my immediate summer plans include finishing our move. Then of course getting unpacked and settled. I'm really looking forward to getting my sewing machine setup and some BOM projects caught up on.

The fabrics in the charm square are so cute. I love the purse you made as well!

I'm already following my fellow Misfit! :-)

Amanda said...

I really love the idea of usingthe jelly roll race quilt as a tablecloth! I might have to borrow that idea!

Don't really have plans for summer. Just have a bunch of quilts, bag, dresses, and goodies to make.

Shelly said...

You're a busy girl . . . Whatever I tell you I'm doing with the rest of my summer will pale in comparison! I have no specific plans in place, but I do hope to get lots of sewing in, in between whatever plans the cows and horses and My Cowboy come up with for me . . . which is why I have no specific plans!

Jeanne said...

I thought I would gather up all the "Misfits" and come to Wyoming for a quilt retreat. RU ready?

sukie said...

I'm a sucker for Little Apples!

sandandstarfish said...
