This post is just an update on all the works in progress that I’ve been working on this year.
Like most quilters, I have a litany of projects that I’ve started and stopped and started something else. These are generally called works in progress, or WIPs. Here’s a list of updates on some of the projects that I’ve been working on this year.
Mother In Law Quilt:
I actually finished this earlier this month, but I never posted about it! I used a pattern by Kelbysews for the crossing quilt to make this quilt that was supposed to be a mother’s day gift. I used the fabric The Boathouse from Sweetwater. I also added a really sweet sailboat on the back!
Mari Beth’s baby shower quilt:
Sometimes very simple quilts are so satisfying. I wanted to give Mari Beth and Tim a very special gift for their first child, so I whipped this sweet little guy up with some 5″ squares.
Baby clothes quilt:
So this is completely out of my comfort zone. One of my mom’s friends reached out and asked if I could make a quilt from her granddaughter’s clothes for a Christmas gift for her granddaughter. I have approached it like it’s a t-shirt quilt, so I’ve been making blocks with interfaced clothes and I’ve been framing them with a soft pink cotton that is the best solid blending color I could find for the majority of these clothes.
I’m glad to be getting a lot of projects knocked out this year! I’ve got one more t-shirt quilt in the works right now but it’s currently a pile of cut up shirts so not much to see yet. I hope you’re all…having a nice week.
Until next time, happy sewing! Because…we still have that!
