Work in Progress Wednesday

It's been ages since I posted a WIP Wednesday post.  I am now down to 3 quilts in my WIP list (not including my 2 long term hand sewing projects).  However I have only made progress on one of them this week.

Little windows block progress

These are some blocks for a little windows quilt I started in a class years ago now.  I still love the red & aqua colour combination.  I can't decide how big to go with this - do I make it into a pram or snuggle quilt for baby or keep going and make a decent lap sized quilt for me?  Any suggestions?

Crochet blanket progress

I'm also making slow progress on my crochet blanket - I need my Mum to come and visit again to help me speed it up!

No progress
  • 9 patch quilt
  • Rachel's quilt
  • Spring Carnival cushion

I have, however, finished quite a few projects since my last WIP post - unsurprisingly baby related! Two baby quilts blogged here and here.

Fabric buckets as a swap for the friend who made this balloon picture for the nursery.

More fabric buckets for a friend

Bunting for the nursery made from Make Life and Summersville fabrics.


And finally a ribbon tag blanket for baby (inspired by Sarah)

New projects

Thanks to the supply of an emergency FQ of Summersville from the lovely Trudi I can start making these fabrics into cushions.  I am following Lynne's Moda Bake shop tutorial

Next project - cushions!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. I think your wip's look lovely...and great job on the croched blanket. It's been a while since I've made any afghans, but you're doing a lovely job.

    I need to make some some of those buntings for a birthday party for my daughter...yours look lovely.

  2. WOW! You have so much going on! The bunting is truly lovely, I love the buckets, and have a general crush on all things Summersville, so am excited to see where these go... :)

  3. You are a machine!! Great makes and finishes. I love those windows blocks - I say keep it for yourself!

  4. Great projects, but I especially love the crocheted blanket

  5. Lovely - I would whip that quilt into a quick baby quilt, else it will be a very old WIP by the time you get to sew it again! xxx

  6. You need that quilt for you, the baby's just getting over indulges with sewy goodness ;o)

  7. I love your windows quilt. the colors are so bright and cheery!

  8. I say keep it for yourself too! Gret projects and good for you for whipping those WiPs in to shape :-)
