WIP Wednesday: Progress and Lack Thereof

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Welcome to Wednesday!

Diamond Tread quilt
The big news this week is that I finally managed to get my Diamond Tread quilt finished, and the pattern is now available. On sale right now for just $3.99! Click here to see more about Diamond Tread.

strips for baby quilt Something I did not work on: The baby quilt for my sister-in-law. Last week, when I said I had four weeks until my SIL's due date to get the quilt done, M-R commented that she thought I had until I actually met the baby. Little did I know at the time, that would be just two more days, not 4 weeks! My new little nephew Jack had other ideas and arrived early, last Thursday night! So his quilt is next on my to-do list, now that Diamond Tread is done.

What are you working on? 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.

(Reminder: Internet Explorer users may have trouble linking up. If so, try downloading the free Chrome or Firefox browsers, and that should solve your problem.)
