WIP Wednesday {2.29.2012}

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Happy Leap Day everyone!  This week has been quite the productive one, with a few finishes to share!  It feels nice to get a few things accomplished, and start to think about fresh new projects to start.  Here's what I've been up to:

Completed Projects


Eeek, no words necessary, but its finished!  More on this big guy here.

FLiQS doll quilt

It will be sad to see this little  guy go, but I think this is right up my partners alley, hopefully she likes!

February Bee Blocks

for Smithiness- February-Inspire Circle for Smithiness- February-Inspire Circle

I have to admit, I had been putting these off all month,  hoping that maybe these triangles would just make themselves, but alas, no such luck.  So I put on my brave "I'm not scared of you" triangle face and got busy. And I have to say these turned out much better than anticipated!  I am usually not a spray starcher, but it helped immensely with keeping those biased edges under control.  These are for Smithiness in the Imagine circle of do. Good Stitches, using this Sew Mama Sew Modern Block of the Month tutorial from Alissa of Handmade by Alissa.

New Projects

japanese x and + blocks- March-Inspire circle

Speaking of do. Good Stitches, my month to be the quilter is March, and I am requesting these Japanese x and + blocks to make a bright fun scrappy quilt.  I've gotten started making the extra 12 blocks I'll need to finish off the quilt, and these things are so stinkin' addicting to make!
