WIP Wednesday

Lee is taking a WIP hiatus to work on her fabric design, but this weekly post keeps me on track, so I'm posting anyway!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


4x5 bee blocks
4x5 blocks
I'm glad to be finished with these! I used Lee's Herringbone pattern (from Fat Quarterly issue 5).

Ongoing projects:
My Lucky Stars quilt
Extra star block for VIBees quilt
I made one more block for My Lucky Stars, because I'm afraid Rene's is lost in the mail (boo!). I used the Starflower block from Ellison Lane Quilts, just scrappy-style. I might put this quilt top together soon.

Christmas quilt

October is my month in the Sew Beautiful Bee, and I'm sending my bee friends some Christmas fabric. I can't wait to see what they come up with! Since taking this picture, I got the fabric all cut up and packaged, so now I just need to find a time to go to the post office sans 4-year-old. (Dear Post Office, Please install a drive-through. xoxo, Katie)

Deer Quilt
Time to start my rotary cutter
Lots of cutting in my future! (Do I have a new rotary cutter blade? I hope so.) I'm excited to get started on this quilt, although I'm not sure how I'll tell these four blue fabrics apart...

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Postage Stamp quilt
Kaleidoscope baby quilt #2

To do:
4x5 blocks
Deer quilt
superhero quilt

Everything looks so cute!! I love the Lucky Stars block! And the Deer quilt looks so cool! Good luck!

I am SO with you on the PO drive-through!! Dragging three kids plus packages in there is not my idea of a good time. Your deer quilt looks fun. Good luck with the blues. I'm excited to see what you get back for your Christmas blocks!

Elizabeth Dackson said...

A PO drive-thru would make my kiddo super happy too :) He actually asked, the last time we went to the post office together, if they had a drive-thru. Wow. Love those Christmas fabrics, can't wait to cook up a block for you! :)

Leah said...

We need more drive-throughs of everything. It's not something I really thought about too much until I had a baby.

I cannot wait to see your Christmas quilt! So glad we found that lime green polka dots.

Debbie said...

Great blocks. Oh the P.O. drive-thru is a great idea! I'd also like my pharmacy drive-thru to be able to sell me a gallon of milk! ;-)
Anyway, great fabrics you're about to cut up!
