WIP Wednesday (4/25/12)

I have been absent from the weekly WIP linky lately... but it's time to catch up!

I gotta share some major fabric loot with you. I haven't bought fabric in a while (times are tough and I've been trying to keep all my projects stash friendly) but I did score these pretties for $2/ yard!!
It's okay to hate me.. I would.
In my defense they are going to be cut into charms for swaps. That makes it okay, right?

I've been sewing up a storm over the last few weeks, but feel like i don't have much to show for it.
Maybe I do? Let's take a look.

Bee Blocks for March & April count as progress, even though they aren't for me, right?

April was my host month for the Gone Quiltin' Bee, so I am now getting wonderful blocks back from my bees. The quilt will be going to my sister, for her college graduation. I know she doesn't read this so I'm safe talking about it :)  It will be a blue and yellow version (her school colors) of the quilt pattern by Nancy Rink (pattern in Quilt magazine June/July 2011 page 45).

Sample Bee Simple Block

I also made some major headway on my Made in Cherry Quilt - 4 more points down, 3 to go. 
I just have one problem, it has no name.. Made in Color? eh.. Color Wheel Cherry?  not feeling it.

pretty points
Any suggestions?


  1. Funny how we never think we've accomplished very much, until we put it all together and realize that we actually have! And of course bee blocks count. ;-) Your projects all look great.

  2. Don't be silly if it's been sewn it counts! No matter how small and even if your sending them away it counts! =D

    Also I've added some new fabrics into my swap shop. If you're interested feel free to check it out =D

  3. it would be criminal to walk away from fabric at such a great price :)
