WIP Wednesday

I've a few things going on right now, despite the madness of trying to get ready for back to school and fitting in visits and activities for the kids before the end of the holidays. The biggest of them is this baby girl quilt which is a custom order. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you'll know I found the quilting very challenging on this one for a number of reasons. Thankfully I'm past it now and ready to hand finish the binding over the next couple of evenings.

I also started to piece together the hexies - thanks everyone for the great suggestions. I'm thinking panel for a bag is what I'm going to do but might change my mind, and I probably have enough to do some of the smaller suggestions too.


After making lots of projects for other people, today's sewing is going to be for me - another Swoon block which I almost have all the lines marked on ready to sew. Today's other project is to try to troubleshoot my machine problems - see how nice she looks here? But she has turned into a monster the last few times I quilted on her so I need to spend a bit of time sorting her out.

Thats about all the WIPs! Don't forget to enter my great giveaway for Stash Fabrics here.

Enjoy your time swooning! I need to get another one made yet this month. I'm also working on quite a few hexie projects. I love how portable they are.

Love the tiny hexies and the baby quilt is looking great. You've just reminded me I must lean my own machine - I see from fb that did the trick for yours.

A nice happy baby quilt! Like it. I used the same fabric, I guess, a few quilts ago for the binding. I makes a nice one.
