A wonderful world of WIPs

This is a full on WIP report, I'm pretty sure I've missed some things off but I flew round with my camera trying to get pictures of everything while being followed by a wee bairn.

finished

Giant Chevron Quilt - fabulous pattern by Jess. This is a Christmas gift for a friend so I can cross that off my Making Christmas list.



Embroidered patchwork cushion - gifted to my son's friend



Bee Blocks for Nat in Simply Solids Bee



Stripey Le Challenge make... you'll see the full reveal tomorrow and please link up your finished STRIPE makes for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop! The link party opens tomorrow. I'm really happy with this one!



in progress:

Feather Bee Quilt - I'm still working on hand quilting and absolutely LOVING it! And the cherry on the cake will be this gorgeous Alison Glass feathers fabric I will use for the binding. Fabulous service and lovely wrapping from The Intrepid Thread



Rose Star Quilt - here's all my random pieces I've sewn together so far and two lone rose stars


I have a way to go to get it to the size I want but it's progressing nicely and it's a labour of love


Teeny Liberty EPP - this is pure madness but I've made 3 little flowers and they are so cute! That's the baby's hand for scale ;)



Commissioned quilt - I've picked some lovely girly fabrics out for a simple patchwork quilt (I'm adding this to my Making Christmas list)



Embroidered ABC quilt - all ready to be bound


Rainbow Log Cabin Quilt 2.0 - needs basting so quilting can commence



Star Flower QAL - two rows left to do



Stitchings in progress



Secret project - I've been having fun with this one!



So that's all the things I'm up to!! Not much ;)

Need time to relax too so I picked up the latest copy of Love Patchwork and Quilting, including a fun supplement with pixel patterns by Tula Pink


**Karen is giving away 3 copies of Love Patchwork and Quilting - giveaway closes 19th Nov**

Although most of my reading is generally done with the little one. I'm sure this book used to be mine as a child, it's well loved and she just adores those bears!

  3. There is so much good stuff here I can't even think what to comment on! You most certainly can't be bored though. :) That chevron really is a giant! Your rise star is getting so big that I can't imagine how much bigger you'll want it -to truly a labor of love. It's beautiful. And those teeny, tiny EPP flowers! So cute in Lois's little paws. Love the yellow log cabin block. Now I know I've missed lots I wanted to say, but there you go. It's all wonderful!
    Thanks for linking in with In Hand. I'm loving seeing your works progress. :)
