WIP Wednesday: In Bloom

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

It's finally spring around here (well, it has been for the last few days, at least). So this week I've been doing a lot of this:

Running outside instead of on a treadmill, doing yard work, and enjoying the sunshine with the girls. 

But I've also been quite productive as well—yesterday while Miss C was at preschool I basted two quilts, including Bloom Bloom Pow! And I'm about halfway through quilting my Diamond Tread quilt. All in all, a very good week. : )

What did you accomplish this week? Share your WIPs! Here are the linky rules:
1. Link up any post from the past week that features at least one unfinished work-in-progress (WIP). 2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog. (Or grab the WIP Wednesday button for your sidebar.)
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links.

And let's all have another sunshiny, productive week!

  1. I remember seeing that country lane this week, as you were in real time on IG. It's idyllic and certainly indicates spring has come to your state. Love the Bloom Bloom Pow and glad the intructions will be around for while--so fresh and so springy!


  2. Nothing beats spring :) your quilt looks great!

  3. Bought a jogging stoller for Button. He is like my personal trainer and yells at me to run! My legs are soo sore! I wish I had a pretty road to run on like that!!! Thanks for keeping the instructions up for a bit. I am just jammed up, but would like to do it...BADLY!

  4. What a beautiful road! I miss going for country drives, or walks on the beach, or any nature really. Being "stuck" in the middle of Tokyo will do that to you!

  5. You have been productive! Bloom bloom pow looks awesome! I would run if I had an area like that... who am I kidding I probably still wouldn't, but it looks nice! ;)

  6. Love spring time :-) I'm very curious about your quilting suggestion on bloom bloom pow!

  7. Your Bloom Bloom Pow is looking fantastic, Lee!

  8. The bloom bloom pow is looking great! I've been enjoying some outdoor runs myself and it is so nice to not wear mittens :)

  9. love that quilt that you are making - the design and the colors

  10. Sounds like a great week! We've had some beautiful Autumn days here in Melbourne, and walks have been had.

  11. We've been having Spring weather for a while now ~ tho this weekend it's supposed to be in the 80's which is not the kind of weather I like. Guess you get what you get to with the weather being out of my control (teehee).
    The Bloom Bloom Pow is looking lovely! I've got my fabric, but haven't had the time to start as yet.

  12. Loving that spring has finally decided to show up! Though where we are, the 80+ degrees is starting to feel a bit more like summer.. ;)

    Also... BBP question: Did I miss using the skinnier white strips? I pored over the instructions posted thus far but couldn't find them anywhere? (Or are those for the binding? Confused! Thank you!)

    1. Nevermind. I'm an idiot. Just figured it out ;)

  13. Nothing from Sunday to Wednesday. We're ill over here. :(

  14. Your Bloom Bloom Pow is terrific. I really want to find time to start one those!

  15. This is my first time linking up..I hope I did it right :)

  16. Oh my I guess I will break down and get 60 degree ruler and go see if there are any bundles of that fabric left. I think I need a Bloom Bloom Pow quilt. Love it.

  17. I am new to your blog, how do I find the how to or the pattern for Bloom Bloom Pow? Yours really speaks to me! I am Carol and you can email me at, and I am a new follower

  18. You sure host some great quilt alongs, Lee! And thanks for the link up. So nice to connect with others this way.


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