Work-In-Progress Wednesday Linky

Welcome to Work-In-Progress Wednesday! It's link-up time!

Each Wednesday, I post a weekly round-up of my WIPs, to help keep me organized, on track, and motivated. And you are all welcome to do your own WIP Wednesday post and link it up below. Let's all cheer each other on as we knock things off our to-do lists! Just don't forget to link back to my blog (you can grab the button in the sidebar). Click here for more details, including rules and such.

My New Projects:

Preschool Pillows
I was asked to make a couple of throw pillows for the reading area at Miss E.'s preschool. I was provided with some fabric for this project:

Um. Yeah. Well, it is a nature preschool, on the grounds of a full-fledged nature center. So I will give them that it goes with their theme. They also try to buy all their fabric on mega-clearance, and as someone who pays their tuition, I appreciate that. But you can't hand me an assignment like this and expect me to come back with your basic electric-green bug pillows. I am duty-bound to make it cuter and less creepy. Stay tuned!

My Ongoing Projects:

Hope Valley quilt
Wow, it's been sloooooow going on this one. Sometimes the quilts I dream up are a bit beyond my ability to execute. : ) Fortunately, I think my skills are finally starting to catch up with my head. So while the piecing has been slow, I'm really happy with how this quilt is coming together. It's now about half done. I'm hoping the top will be completed by next week.

That Girl ... That Quilt Along quilt
New fabric = much better! And while changing the fabric did put me a little behind, I think I'll be caught up on the piecing by tomorrow. This one has provided a nice (needed) break from my Hope Valley quilt. I'll have more on it tomorrow.

Didn't do anything on these:
Figgy Pudding Quilt
Wonky Log Cabin

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Modern Meadow Baby Quilt
Fall Equinox (Fat Quarterly Quilt Along quilt)

his week's stats:
New projects - 1
Completed projects - 0
Currently in progress: 7 - up 1 from last week (with at least two more projects waiting in the wings, needing to be started!)

Wow, I can't wait to see what you do with those pillows. That is fabric, to say the least! Love the sneak peek of your Hope Valley quilt, I bet it will be just gorgeous :)

Good luck with the pillows! I know you will figure something out to make them perfect! I love the Hope Valley quilt. I bought the entire collection as soon as it came out, but I still haven't decided how to use it yet...maybe next year. Can't wait to see yours finished!

I had to hop over and check out your original starting post from a year ago too.
