Wednesday WIP Wrap-up...

I know I haven't done a WIP for quite a while...but today is the one year anniversary for Lee at Freshly Pieced's weekly Wednesday WIP party - so, I thought today would be a good day to evaluate my WIP's and join the party again.

This week I did have a BIG finish...my first quilt! Also, I did a couple of small projects that I showed yesterday...so, now it's almost like starting new!

Today, Liz, Chad, and I narrowed down a quilt pattern for Liz's quilt...I think we have finally decided on this one...
postage stamp progress!

Liz actually said she liked this one better...but she's three...so, I'm going to make the executive decision and add the sashing! Now that we have a pattern, I can start cutting fabric...ooohh!
(Edited to add this picture of the fabric
picked out for the Postage Stamp quilt...)
The lower four fabric were picked out and purchased last week during a good sale at JoAnn's. The fabrics in the upper half of the photo are pulled from my stash to coordinate...I'm not sure if all of these will make the final cut or if I'll add some others, but this is our majority of fabrics.
I'm still stalled on Liz's Season's quiet book...haven't touched it in months, except to move it! Christmas is coming quickly...I'll have to get it out again soon!

There has been little progress on the 60 degree Diamond Fall Table Topper...but I think I did get another star section done since this last photo in August.
For the afternoon I'm going to sort through scrapbook paper for the kids to use for their Christmas cards for the Soldiers (see yesterday's post for more details or click the Operation Christmas card button on my right side bar). I'm also going to start working on a few cards to contribute.

TO wrap it up...

Finished projects: 1 (Amber's quilt)
New projects: 2 (Postage stamp quilt, Christmas cards)
Continued projects: 2 (EPP Diamonds, Season's quiet book)
Total WIP projects: 4

  5. Aww...make her the one without sashing mom! lol I'm sure it will look fantastic whichever way you go ;) My mom told me about a cards for soldiers program, I think that's really awesome that you're getting the kids involved making some too.

  6. I love that you are making the executive decision. It made me laugh. The postage stamp quilt is great quilt with or without the sashing. Thanks for sharing.

  14. I would like to try the diamonds some day...they are always so pretty.

  15. The diamonds looks good. I recently finished a quilt like that - only with diamond and hexies to make some space between the stars. Although I really think my hand piecing quota for this year is used my fingers are itching to start a new one soon.

  19. Good luck with your postage stamp! I keep thinking I should try, but I might be too chicken lol

  20. It'll be a lovely quilt when it's done. And I'm sure Liz will love it - sashing or no sashing!

    The table topper looks like it'll be fantastic when it's done! (I'm very impressed by paper templating projects!)

  21. That table topper looks like it's going to be amazing!

  22. Everything looks great! Can't wait to see that table topper!

  23. I love the idea of adding the sashing to the postage stamp quilt! I also like that each block is random so if there is a color placement issue it's not a big deal; probably could use more scraps that way too.
