WIP Wednesday

My Little Apples giveaway ends tomorrow. If you haven't entered yet be sure to do so here.

I realized this week that I have a LOT more WIPs than I realized. Here's my current ones....there are many more hanging around my sewing room that have been put on hold.

Terrain dish towel lining.

Redwork for a SwapBot swap. I wish I could say that I drew this freehand, but I traced it from an awesome wildlife coloring book I found when we were living in Montana.

First templates for the Farmer's Wife QAL. I've finally joined in on the fun! I'm going to stitch it by hand, and I'm still deciding how to piece them. I'm debating between marking & stitching along the quarter inch seam, or paper piece them (like hexies). Any suggestions?

More progress on my Arcadia quilt/tutorial.

I have a table top ironing board and I found this hiding underneath it. It's the fabric for the June block for the String Me Along bee. Oops! I know what I'm working on tomorrow. :}

This week I cut up these fun little bundles for this pattern. I loved the bright colors so much and told my boss so. She asked if I'd like to make a sample to display at the store. I jumped at the chance. Then today she showed me how to prep a quilt back for the longarm. Not super exciting, but it's one step in the direction of learning how to use that monstrous machine. :)

Be sure to visit Lee @ Freshly Pieced to see all the other WIPs for the week.

I just got a charm pack of Terrain yesterday! Isn't it lovely? And I know I mentioned it before, but I have to say again, I love, love, love Arcadia. I can't wait to see your finished quilt!

Busy, busy, busy!! I just love the things you make and how you put your colors together. I could learn a thing or two from you!

I wish I could the FWQAL! I love seeing all the blocks and am looking forward to seeing yours!
How fun that you get to make a quilt sample...I think that fabric set will look great with the pattern. And I really hope you get to learn to use the long arm soon :)

I'm like Kelly; I love seeing all the FW blocks but just can't add it right now. Love the color combo for your Arcadia quilt.

You've certainly got a lot going on! Can't wait to see your FW, you're ambitious doing it all by hand!
