W.I.P. Wednesday

It's Wednesday. I've been a busy bee this week! My list is getting mighty short...

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


May blocks for do. Good Stitches

Lisa asked for bright, colorful blocks. I hope she meant that, because I certainly took it to heart! We're making blocks using the Sugar Pop n Change block from Moda Bake Shop.

Tracey's block for the VIBees

Tulip for Tracey

Tracey asked for petal blocks. I remembered this block from Penny at Sew Take a Hike. She told me that the tulip template came from Material Obsession 2, so I picked up the book from the library.

Tracey is making a baby quilt, so I didn't want raw edges. I found this tutorial for using freezer paper for turned-edge appliqué. Very clever!

Angela's block for Sew Beautiful Bee
