WIP #15

Disclaimer: ¬†It may seem like I get a lot done between WIP reports, but I would like to make note that I only do a WIP every other week, or every three weeks or so ūüôā


So, way back in early November, I posted that I had four works in progress, and I had completed two quilts.  One of those quilts was my Habitat Challenge quilt, which I can now show you because our MQG meeting is over.


I go into more detail about this quilt here, including my inspiration and my free motion quilting design.

So, back to the four other projects I was working on…

1)  Baby Boy Lattice quilt is complete!  See more details about this quilt here.

2. ¬†My Postage Stamp Quilt is also done. ¬†That was a lot of fun to make, but I’ll wait a while until I make another :). ¬†Learn more about this quilt here.

3) ¬†My Skill Builder Sampler blocks are plugging along. ¬†We have made it half way, so 18 out of 36 blocks are complete. ¬†Since I used my earlier blocks in my Quilt of Valor quilt, I only have the latest 9 to show, but here they are. ¬†I have always wanted to do a circle flying geese block, so I’m glad Leila had us take the plunge and make one!

4)  My Quilt of Valor II quilt is just as I left it.  No progress there.

5) ¬†I started a new quilt that I also finished. ¬†I had been wanting to make a quilt using money mailer coupons as my foundation for paper piecing string quilts, and so I made a quilt! ¬†Can you tell that I don’t have very many yellow, red, or purple scraps?

I donated this to my kid’s school’s PTA to be auctioned off at our Fall Festival. ¬†It was the big money maker this year, with a couple of ladies staying late to outbid each other. ¬†Learn more about this quilt here.

6) ¬†I have cut up the remaining pile of my Dolce fabric and plan on making a couple of baby quilts with them. ¬†But, since I have taken my machine in to get maintenance done on it, I guess I’ll just have to look at the pile and wait.


4 works in progress

2 new ones started

3 quilts finished

I guess I now have 3 works in progress. ¬†I like that number. ¬†But, maybe since I have no machine, I’ll do more cutting for new quilts. YAY!

Go over to Lee’s site to see more WIP’s.
