Oh Wednesday, we meet again. We've had quite a busy week running here and there it seems, so I'm surprised I've gotten as much sewing done as I have. This was the hubs weekend off, so it seems we cram about three weekends worth of stuff into two days, whew! Anyways, here's whats new in the sewing room:
I spent some time finishing up my bee blocks for my hivemates in the 4x5 bee. I struggled a little this round on what block to make, and ultimately decided on taking Rachel from In Color Order's Wheel Quilt Pattern and shrinking it down to 12.5" block size. Overall I'm very happy with how these turned out, and can't wait to make the pattern in actual quilt size!
Granny Squares Baby Quilt
For starters, pardon the crapalicious cell phone pic here, bad lighting+cell phone camera in general= not good at all. But, its all I could manage this morning before heading out the door to work. Ever since seeing Jolene's granny squares quilt way back when, I knew I wanted to make some of these little guys, but it seemed I was always in the middle of something else and couldn't get around to it. I figured no time like the present, and this week got to work. I'm doing mine a little differently, after seeing Michelle's granny squares mini without the sashing, I knew this was how I wanted mine. I'm piecing them together in rows first, and then will sew all the rows together on the diagonal. I'm itching to get this top pieced, as I can already tell it will be a favorite.
I've officially lost count of technically all the "WIPs" I have going on, so I'm deciding to leave off the number count and focus just on what I'm working on this week. Much less stressful, I figure I don't need reminding about all projects I haven't touched in 3 months (ahem, Farmers Wife QAL)..I'll get back to it eventually...maybe...
So, what have you been working on this week?? Head over to Freshly Pieced and link up!
