WIP Wednesday

This is my first link up to WIP Wednesday and only my second post.  I have lots to learn about blogging, linking and taking pictures but figure no better way to learn than to just do it! I have been following and seeing all the great projects people are working on and what a great way to stay on task.  I also hope then I will get some things accomplished.

This weekend is a a quilty retreat with a few friends at my mom's house a couple of hours from home, so now I need to get ready to spend 4 days sewing. 

I am starting with a quilt for my grandma.  I am doing a really easy pattern from Quilting in the Rain, Rainy Day Quilt.  I had pinned this awhile ago and am using all fabric from my stash. 

I need to make a donation baby quilt by Thanksgiving weekend.  I think I will use a Kona charm pack and either white or light grey and do a simple coin quilt.  Not sure which background I will use so I may need to bring both.

I would like to finish my Summerville quilt. The patchwork blocks are done just need to sash them.

I also want to make some small projects.  I bought the drawstring bags pattern from In Color Order.  Then a maybe a sewing machine cover, iPad cover, and a binder cover.  So I will just bring some fabric and cordinates and hope to get a few of them done.

I currently have 8 projects on my list.  I know there is no way I will get all this done but you have to have a list right?  Well, at least I do and I will love checking them off too!

We'll see what gets finished.  If you have visited from WIP Wednesday, thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Beth, I love your colors for the Rainy Day Quilt. I hope you'll include progress photos. I also like your Summerville quilt with it's beautiful, low-volume fabrics.

    I like the idea of using a blog to keep track of progress. It really will do that if I keep up with progress and posts.

    I wanted to let you know that on Fridays hosts a Small Blog Meet which is open only to those with fewer than 50 followers. I just found it last week. Since you're so new to blogging, you might like to link to it. That way lots of quilters can see your great ideas.

  2. Congratulations! Welcome!

    How fun to have a 4 day quilting retreat. Awesome!
