WIP Wednesday #33

So, I made a list yesterday of all the quilts I've started that are in various stages of [in]completion. After making the list and being really annoyed that I don't have all the time in the world to sew, I thought, Hey, at least I can blog about all of these and feel like I'm accomplishing something! So, I give you my works in progress.

Kona Challenge Quilt for SLCMQG

This is still on the DL since I have until August to finish this baby up. I have the top done except for an outer border and I'm really loving all the solids in the Brights pack we got.

Kona Solids Challenge

Accuquilt GO! Baby Tutorial(s)

I've been working on a couple projects cut from my GO! Baby cutter that I'll be posting in July. The two items I chose to work on are both holiday related, so I hope that doesn't scare any of you off. If you stick around, it may be worth your while...say in a free fabric cutter and three dies of your choice!

Boo to You

Figgy Pudding

Daughter's Twin Quilt

I haven't posted anything about this quilt yet. I started it a couple months back when we decided to get a bunk bed to move my kids into the same room so the baby can have its own nursery. I let my daughter pick the fabrics she wanted (Rainy Days and Mondays from Riley Blake). I combined an Oh Fransson design with Dresdens and I think it will look pretty spiffy in the end. Hopefully, I can put some time into finishing that by the end of July when we plan on moving the kids into the same room.

Sisters Quilts

I've also had two quilts in progress for two of my sisters for who knows how long. I'm making one out of HSTs (ugh!) in Blush by Moda and the other is based on this design from Film in the Fridge in a variety of grays and red and black. I really need to get on these because they have been waiting since last year!

Swirling Stars Quilt

I've had all twelve blocks for this quilt done for quite some time, but just haven't gotten around to piecing them together. Someday...

Sew Beautiful Bee Quilt

Here are seven of the ten blocks I received from the wonderful girls in my bee. I'm debating whether I want to make this into a 3x3 layout with one circle of geese block on the back, or if I should make two more blocks myself so it's a 3x4 layout.

Blocks Received from Sew Beautiful Bee Ladies

Quilt Tops Needing Quilting
  • Jellyroll sampler quilt top (from Momo's Odyssea line)

    Jelly Roll Quilt Along Quilt Top

  • Patching Up baby quilt top (from Momo's Freebird line) - I need to finish this before my baby comes.

  • Orange and blue fish in bags quilt top (from Heather Ross' Goldfish in Bags fabric) - I've since added a border to this top so it really is ready to go.

Goldfish Squares Quilt

Whoa.

I usually like having multiple projects to work on, but this list is out of control. Thanks to those of you who made it through that entire post. If you have any energy left, head on over to Lee's place and check out her WIP Wednesday linky to see what everyone else is working on.

Lists always make me feel more in-control, even when they're long. I love all your projects! I did a Circle of Geese block for a bee, too - I'll be watching yours unfold for inspiration for mine!
