WIP Wednesday #33

Holy cow, where did August come from?  It totally snuck on me!  After not having a whole lot going on for the past few months, I feel like all of a sudden I've got projects coming out my ears.  It's probably not as bad as it seems right now, but after a fairly lazy summer as far as sewing goes, it seems like a lot.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I'm still working on the back for this quilt.  It's kind of funny that it's taking me so much longer to make the back than it did to make the front!

Vintage print wonky 9-patch

I don't have a specific plan for the back, I'm just kind of laying it out as I go, trying to use up as many scraps as I can from the front.  I was doing pretty good on it yesterday until I went & did this:


Over the weekend I finished up a fun little tote bag.  I'm working on the pattern for it for Pellon, so I'm looking forward to sharing it with you!  Luckily I didn't have any of the same issues when I made the first few totes. :)


Side note:  do you have any idea how hard it is to photograph clear vinyl?!  It either has a terrible glare or is totally invisible.  Ugh.

And finally (Really, only three projects?  Why does it feel like so much more?!), I got some new fabric last night that I absolutely love!  

Sketch by Timeless Treasures

It's Sketch by Timeless Treasures in White & Black, Lipstick, Spring, & Grass.  They're such pretty, bright colors!  I have plans for a quilt pattern for Pellon & can't wait to get started.  Can you guess what my inspiration is?  I do still need to get the white fabric to add in, if that helps you out any.

I guess that's all for now, but it's enough!  

Remember, we're starting up the Style Stitches Sew Along again this month, so dust off your book & get sewing!  I'll get the first post for that up later this week or early next week.

Make sure you head over to Freshly Pieced to see what everybody else has been up to this week.

Until next time...

  1. Time flies when you're having fun/run off your feet? Looking forward to seeing what you're going to do with the sketch :o)


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! :)
