Oh, Wednesday. Why must you sneak up on me so quickly every week?

New projects:

Bee blocksI finished up my {Sew} Beautiful and String Me Along blocks this week, and now working on these bright, fun string blocks for Do. Good Stitches.

Ongoing projects:

Modern Meadow baby quiltHand-stitching the binding on as we speak. So I should have a finished quilt for you by next week. This will be my 4th finish of the year, which means I'm more or less still on track for 12 finished quilts in 2011.

Supernova Quilt-Along
All basted, and I'm about to start the quilting. It's so exciting to be finishing this up! And I have been blown away by the finished tops and quilts showing up in the Flickr group! Beautiful work, ladies!

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Hope Valley (the original Supernova)

On hold ... yeah, yeah.

This week's stats:
New projects - 1 (bee blocks)
Completed projects - 1 (Mosaic Squares shower curtain)
Currently in progress - 10 (same as last week)

You're up! Let's see what you've got going this week. Remember to link back to my blog in your post, and please comment on the other links. Happy sewing!


  1. I have seen some of the SuperNova quilts all done, they are nice. 12 quilts finished for 2011 so far, you are really getting a lot done.

  2. Ooh, I love the fabric you chose for the binding on the baby quilt - that's one of my favorite JD prints. I can't wait to see how your Supernova turns out! :)

  3. Oh that stack of fabrics is just gorgeous! Why are colors so inspiring! That makes me want to make something! I'm excited to see some more finished supernovas too, they are all looking so spectacular.

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets caught off-guard by Wednesdays!

    That baby quilt is going to be absolutely great. And way to go for being on track for 12 quilts, I'm definitely impressed!

  5. Love those fabrics! I'd be feeling all bright and chipper the whole time I was working with them. :D

  6. I just love the way you clip on your binding - sew much better than pins! You have finished a dozen quilts and here I've just finished my first and it's really small - you go, girl!

  7. Your baby quilt is so pretty!
    And I'm really looking forward to seeing how you quilt the Supernova . . . I've got mine almost ready to baste, but can't decide how to quilt it!

  8. So excited to see your finished quilts soon! I am in awe of all the supernova quilts and tops popping up, makes me want to jump in late in the game and make one!!

  9. Love the new fabric! AND can't wait to see your Supernova and Modern Meadow complete! Inspiring.

  10. Love the binding on your Modern Meadow quilt! So cool.

  11. Oh your fabric stash just makes me drool! Can't wait to see what you do with them!

  12. Awesome choices for your string blocks! Have fun sewing on the binding this week ... that's my job too!

  13. Just wanted to say thank you for doing this each week. I love to come over and see what everyone is working on! It also keeps me inspired to work on projects since I mentioned them on my WIP list! Thanks for being here every week!

  14. I love those fabrics in the first picture - so bright and beautiful!

    Thanks for hosting this party.

  15. hello! I went on a search for a new WIP to participate in since the one I've been doing, she seems to have stopped doing it.
    I am yours all about quilting only? That seems to be what I see in the linky. I am doing quilts, but I also have other projects going on all the time as well. Looking forward to going and checking out some of the others in the linky, but I can already tell that I pale in comparison on the quilts I make to what they are making! I am so a beginner and will probably always stay that way, doing the simple things.

  16. Yay for you for being right on track with your quilting goal. Funny enough, I have the same goal and I am already so much behind...

  17. I hear you on Wednesday being sneaky and popping up so suddenly like it does! As evidenced by my lack of timely WIP post. Will hopefully get one done tonight. C'est la vie, I guess.

    Love your baby quilt - MM is one of my fave lines. Can't wait to see how you quilt your Supernova (I need ideas!!).

  18. Just stopping in again. I've had a lot of fun looking at many of the blogs in the linky....and getting inspired along the way too.

  19. I love the color combo of your newst project!

  20. Just want to say thank you for hosting the Supernova Quilt Along...I had a great time! Watching everyone's photos in the flickr group was truly inspiring. Thanks again.

  21. Oh, those fabrics are making me jealous, they're so pretty! And I can't wait to see that baby quilt, it looks so lovely :-) Thanks as always for hosting, I love checking out what people are working on every week!

  22. Great fabrics! Can't wait to see what you make with them.

  23. OO OO OO OOooo what is your new project?? I so LOVE your fabric selection!!


I love comments and read every one of them! : )
