WIP Wednesday – March 12, 2014

Exciting news alert!  My new niece, Layla Naomi, arrived last night!  She came right on her due date and within 2 hours of my cousin going into labor!  She is clearly a little lady with an important agenda.

Layla Naomi

We are going to DC in 10 days to meet her, and I’m making excellent progress on her quilt.  Since her gender was a surprise and her big sister, Soraya, loves learning about different animals, I just had to use my stash of Happy Drawing and Happy Drawing Too

I have 70 of the 100 blocks completed and this should be a top by the weekend.

I love the way the Economy Blocks show off the little animals.  These little blocks are so fun and whimsical!

I think Soraya will help Layla learn the names of all the different animals.

Soraya

Layla Naomi, I can’t wait to meet you!

WIP Wednesday – March 27, 2013

While I’ve finished several quilts recently, I do feel like no matter how much progress I make, the WIP list never gets below 10!!  Here’s a sampling of what I’ve been actively working on recently.

I’m nearly done (re)quilting my spring green/yellow/grey baby quilt…

Retro Flowers

…I started quilting the Sherbet Pips apple core project…

Pips Apple Core Quilting

…I pieced 11 more of my Flower Sugar Hand Sewn Diamond Stars while I had jury duty…

Flower Sugar Stars

…I made a postage stamp top with leftovers from this quilt

Yellow and Green Leftovers Quilt_01

…and this block is supposed to be the center of the Marcelle Medallion quilt, which can be found in the Liberty Love book by Alexia Abegg, but I am not the biggest fan of medallion quilts.  I decided instead to make a quilt using only this block but, while I absolutely loved the first block I made, I haven’t loved the rest quite as much.

Marcelle

Should I continue to 16 (my original plan) or stop at 9?

Finally, I have been learning to crochet and I worked on a ripple afghan when I went to Washington this past weekend.

Hopefully I will finish one of these soon!

Pink and Green Triangle Quilt

One of my husband’s oldest friends had his first baby in January, and C must have really wanted me to make them a quilt because he managed to get a picture of the baby’s nursery, which he texted to me.  I received the picture while driving and immediately sped home to pull fabric!

This was such a fun quilt to make.  Not only did it match the nursery perfectly, which I was thrilled to see when we went to meet Baby Molly, I think it was perfect for mom’s personality — she is such a fun, bright person!

Pink and Green Triangles_09

This pattern is a great way to mix a bunch of fun prints and colors.  I couldn’t decide between pink and aqua binding, so I did both!

Pink and Green Triangles_11

I think this is the perfect quilt for a bubbly baby girl!

Enjoy your quilt, Molly!

WIP Wednesday – February 20, 2013

When your husband requests that you make a baby quilt for his friend’s newborn baby and he accompanies that request with a picture of the nursery for inspiration, you have no excuse not to make the quilt right away!

I immediately pulled the stack above and got a great response on Instagram.  I don’t know why, but I was really inspired to do an equilateral triangle quilt and I’m so glad I did — it was so fast!

Pink and Green Triangles_01

Laying out the triangles was seriously the most time consuming part of this quilt.  I think that took me even longer than the quilting, and I did a lot of quilting!

Pink and Green Triangles_02

Seriously, it was so fast that I also was able to make this quilt top (hello, shameless copy)!

WIP Wednesday – First Finishes of 2013

Now that my craft room is back in action and I fixed the tension issues on my Juki, I’ve been bitten by the productivity bug.

WIP Wednesday 2-12

I finished the Sock Monkey 9-Patch, started and completed my HMQG Madrona Road challenge quilt, and quilted the pink zig zag quilt!

Pips Apple Core Quilting

I’m so happy about my Juki that I put this quilt under the needle, even though I probably should be working on this…
