WIP Wednesday #35

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Just a quick check-in today, not a lot to report, but I feel like I've been pretty productive.  

I got the first block done for my watermelon quilt & it came together just as quickly as I hoped!  I really love how it turned out & have started sewing more strips together.  I've got all the strips cut for the block except the dark green for the border.

Block 1 done

Only 34 more blocks to go!  :)

I also started quilting on the vintage print quilt.  I decided to do it by hand, even though I really did want to try doing this one on my machine.  But I really enjoyed doing the hand work on Coop's quilt so I decide to go with that.  I'll have to try to get a picture of the quilting, but it's really hard to see since I'm using a cream thread, and it pretty much blends in with all the fabrics.  

Right now I'm working on the tutorial for this bag.  I love the clear pocket on it, but it's hard to explain & vinyl doesn't photograph well!

I think that's pretty much all I've been up to, but it's enough!  Hopefully you're all having a wonderful week!

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

Until next time...
