WIP - Check In

Needed to check in and see how I am doing for the month.  Doing some sewing but not as much progress as I would like I think there are too many projects going at once.  This weekend since I have 2 days off of work is time to get a few things done!

From my list for the FAL List here is what I have been working on:

The scrap quilt from Quiltville's Free Patterns, the Dancing 9.  I had gotten 58 of the blocks over half done just by doing them as leader and enders.  Then I had a short amount of time and needed to do some mindless sewing.  Yup all 68 blocks ready for sashing. Now to to pick the sashing. I am not sure anything really goes with all this crazy but thinking I am picking a darker blue from stash. This will most likely a donation quilt and I do always like them better when they are done.

Moda Friendship Blocks - I finished all of them. I did buy the grey to use for sashing.  It is a new Kona color and bought the rest of the bolt on Sunday.  Now to figure out how I am going to lay this one out.

Of course I have a list a mile long and what did I do.  I picked up a pile of scraps that were already sewn into strips that I won at my Moda Quilt Club meeting and made this mini.  Not sure what it will be for but they were lying in a pile on the floor. Yes, I keep things on the floor.  They needed to be put away but didn't have a good spot for them so I made them up!  Now I want to quilt this little one up and have a finish this week.  I am sure someone might like this as a gift at the holidays.

No progress on the goal I set for my October finish or on my list of Christmas gifts. Hoping to finish a few things over the very nice long weekend I am going to enjoy and get ready for my sewing weekend in November.

I am linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Beth!!! That scrapy quilt you threw together caught my eye, I thought...that looks like the one hanging in Patched Works! Great job putting the pieces together into something very similar to the original. Definately looking forward to seeing what you do with that Kona I cut for you. ; )

  2. Your quilt top is looking great and I'm looking forward to seeing those blocks sewn up. You've got some lovely projects in progress :)
