WIP Wednesday: Rolling Along


Unfortunately I don't have much to show this week. I accomplished a ton, but it's all on one project that I can't show here yet. So you'll have to take my word for it that I'm firing on all cylinders these days. : ) And that's a good thing, because this week I need to whip the house into shape for some really fun company! Yes, Elizabeth is headed up toward my neck of the woods—we're going to hang out, party with our kiddos, and of course, do some sewing. Which means that this time next week, her and I might just be working on some WIPs together! How fun is that?

Ongoing projects:
Solids quilt. The top is now complete! Woot! So it's not a finish, but it sure feels like one. Can't wait to get quilting.

No progress:
• Do Good Stitches Asterisk quilt

• Hexy mini quilt
• Gen X Quilters' Charmed Prints QA
• Halloween quilt


• Farmer's Wife QA (hoping to get back to this one soonish! gasp!)
• Skill Builder QA
• Figgy Pudding quilt

This week's stats:
Completed projects - 0
New projects - 0
Currently in progress - 9

You know what to do! Let's see those WIPs. Link up, comment, and enjoy!

Lovely to hear that you are quilting with a friend next week...so nice to have that opportunity.

I do love to quilt with a buddie too, and if it's one of the same wavelength even better! Have fun

I have been admiring your mini hexagons. Gorgeous. Have fun with Elizabeth and the kids. The soccer ball should come in handy if the weather is bad. Friends always make the time go quicker
