WIP Wednesday 8/24/11

What an exciting week! I can hardly wrap my brain around all of the good creative karma...

New Projects
1. Talented quilter and sweet blogger Sarah put out the call for help , and I couldn't say no. She's asking volunteers to sew a few blocks for two special quilts for two girls in foster care. 

One of the women to step up to the plate, Jen has already pieced two blocks in the the girls favorite colors, pink and purple.
Aren't they wonderful? I better get going on this!

Please read the rest of the story if you haven't already and see if you'd like to help. And if you have signed up to help (I know many of you have), brava!  You girls make me so proud to be part of this community!

2. Okay gooshy blog love aside, I think I may have a new addiction. Apparantly signing up for my first quilt along last week was like taking a gateway drug. I've barely sliced my ATS QAL pretties before totally hopping on board for another! 

I'm brainstorming colorways for the Dead Simple QAL now. 
I'm having trouble picking just one though... HELP!! 

1. Across the Sea QAL is officially underway! Cutting instructions were posted on Monday by Jennifer!
I've started cutting! (will post photos when I can get my schedule, camera, and natural lighting to cooperate..)

2. I spent about an hour working on the quilting my Scrappy Friendship Quilt the other night. Was it alot of progress? Ummmm no. But on principle I am including it. So there. You can't stop me! Ha!  

Woah.. Okay sorry about that. Got a bit excited there...

No Progress
  1. Quilt with No Name
  2. Sewing Room Pencil Holder
  3. Color Wheel Charm Swap (mailed mine, can't wait for that return package!)
  4. Thomas the Tank Train Bag
  5. Log Cabin Flag Quilt (partially quilted)
  6. Quilts for Kids (2 quilt kits) 
  7. Needle Case
  8. The Great Couch Re-cover

Let's see what everyone has been up to this week! 


  1. Sarah's Call for Help is so sweet I wish I could help. Those first two blocks are really cute.

  2. I love those fabrics they used in those two blocks.

    I think all three of your choices are lovely, so I am no help there either.... but I think going into winter {dreaming here of winter in 100+ degree weather} I would lean towards the third option.


  3. Oh, you're so busy. I love your colourways for the DS QAL but I think that the one on the left would be the one I am drawn to the most.
