WIP Wednesday {2.9.2012}

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

This week seems to have completely flown by without much to show for it.  The hubs and I took a weekend trip to visit out of town friends which was a blast, but has left me feeling sort of in catch up mode since then.  Here's what I have managed to accomplish down in the sewing room this weekend:

Sparkle Punch Mini Quilt

FLiQS


FLiQS

The long car ride led to lots of time spent hand quilting this little guy.  Its about 3/4 of the way quilted, so I'm thinking after one more Big Bang Theory marathon it should be completed!

Swoon 


I have the pieces cut for my last three swoon blocks and the half square triangles pieced.  After seeing all the completed Swoons popping up in the group pool, I'm itching to get mine pieced!

Hopefully this week will leave me a little more sewing time, however I'm super pumped for my quilt shop hop with Leona on Saturday!

Be sure to head on over to Freshly Pieced and add your WIP!
