WIP 7/27

I have had a productive week, given the number of interruptions to take each girl to their summer camps and wisdom teeth extraction for the oldest... looking forward to school when I have the house to myself again :) but I will miss them.

Completed: Nothing

New Projects:

I started Crazy Mom Quilts 36 patch QAL. Love how this is coming out with the use of my 1/4 inch foot, so much that I ordered one for my other machine.


Hands 2 Help quilt top is done and the back is pieced ready for basting.

The Wonky Spring Log Cabin top that distracted me so much last week is done and the backing pieced, ready for basting.

Two more blocks ready to sew for Bottled Rainbow this week and I got thread to match these and all the remaining blocks.

I was having such success with my 1/4 foot, I got out the Hope Valley Round and Round and did a round on it. I am considering options to modify this for completion. I still have 150 sets of squares that are cut/sewn but they can always be used in the backing.

And... marching season is upon us and I am refreshing all of the school flags for the Color Guard before we get into making the show flags. I have 25 done, 12 in progress and 12 that still need starting.....

American Jane blocks: Hour Glass Pot holders : Pinwheel Quilt Along : Hope Valley QAL : Stamp QAL :Chubby Stars QAL : Leaves D9P : Mandy's fence : HST: New Wave: - 14


  1. I really like those bottled rainbows blocks - they are going to look stunning when it's done! :-)

  2. Heee!! This is my first year of no marching band children (and hence no constant bringing home of flags to fix for the color guard folks). I will miss that job that I had a love-hate relationship with!

  3. Ahhh more completely gorgeous bottled rainbow blocks... I don't think I can take seeing many more before my self control caves in and I start some myself in envy.
    In other words I love your blocks :)

  4. You have had a productive week! Your H2H quilt is looking good - can't wait to see it on Sunday's linky!! And I love that Hope Valley Round and Round quilt - very pretty!

  5. Oh, I just love love love that Hope Valley Round and Round pattern. Can't wait to see yours! The bottled rainbow blocks are so cute too. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

  6. Love your rainbow blocks! It's reassuring to see that I'm not the only one still working on that QA. :)

  7. Wow, you have been busy and remain so it seems! So many great projects. I love love love bottled rainbow!
