WIP Wednesday #5

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

The weeks seem like they're flying by lately, it's funny how that always happens this time of year. Winter drags by, but as soon as it starts getting nicer outside, there aren't enough hours in the day, or days in the week! Add in the fact that I'm counting every single week (18!), and things are going even faster than normal.

Started: Nothing new. Honestly, I probably won't start anything new until April, unless I decide to join in on the Supernova Quilt Along at Freshly Pieced. I haven't decided yet since I've got limited time. I am thinking that if we find out Goose is a girl, or don't find out at all, maybe I'll make that instead of another postage stamp quilt. We'll see.

Supernova Quilt-Along with Freshly Pieced

In Progress: Still working on this month's Origami Bags for the Sew Along. I'm beginning to feel like a broken record week after week, but it's hard when I don't typically have many projects in the works at once. I still have a few weeks to finish these up, and while I hope I won't leave them until the last minute, I certainly won't be surprised if I do.

Made some good progress on the Postage Stamp quilt this weekend! I got over half the strips cut into pieces, and seeing them laid out makes me excited to work on it even more. It makes working on the Origami Bags even harder, although after cutting for an hour or two my poor hand needed a break from holding the ruler down.


I've got six sets left to cut, then it'll be time to start sewing them all back together.

**Go check out the update on my Postage Stamp quilt!**

Completed: Nada. It's hard to finish stuff when I don't start anything new & don't have much in progress.

Until next time...


  1. I think a girly Supernova quilt would be fantastic, if you guys decide not to find out, or if you find out you're having a girl. I love how your postage stamp quilt is looking, the brown really makes those fun prints pop! :)

  2. Your postage stamp quilt is going to be so pretty! I love the colors.

  3. I also think a girl version of the Super-Nova quilt would be great, I also am on the fence about joining that quilt-along, just not sure I have fabric that would make a great quilt, and am not buying any new fabric right now, so I will just have to see. Your postage stamp quilt is looking great!

  4. I'm wavering on the Supernova quilt too. I think that quilt is really dependent on fabulous fabric choices and I'm nervous about mine. But it would be fun to make a super girly one. Love your postage stamp progress.

  5. Love your colors for the postage stamp quilt!

  6. I agree the colors on your postage stamp quilt colors are great.

  7. Ha, I work backwards through my blogs by clicking my Google Next button, so I didn't realize the first post I read was an update of ANOTHER WIP Wednesday post. When I got to this one, I was like, "Wait a minute, I SWEAR I already read a WIP Wednesday post from her ..." But I see what happened now. : ) Glad you made good progress this week!

  8. Oh, I HATE cutting squares. Especially since I can never seem to get them exactly square. I've been debating one of those Acuquilt Go machines, but it seems like cheating somehow. :P

    Great fabrics and colors! I can't wait to see how it turns out.


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate each & every one I get. I do try to respond to most (if not all) comments, but that's hard to do if you don't have an e-mail in your profile! :)
