WIP 3.11

This week I have slowed down a little. It took a lot of stealth sewing to get my husbands quilt done last week and then the girls had both Friday and Monday off school and I didn't want to hole up in my sewing room. That said, I did get a new project started...


New Project:

I signed up for a Pay-it-Forward handmade exchange on Facebook and decided to make bags for my 5 recipients. I am using a Keyka Lou pattern that I got at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics and this is one of the fabric combos that I am using.


Although I am still behind on my HST, I did get some sewn together in a block. My goal this week is to get back on track with these squares. See the feather print on the right lower corner? I kept thinking I would really like to get some of it for the backing and the other day I found it a Hancock for $2 yard. Guess what I am using to back this quilt!

  3. The HST Quilt-in-Progress is looking awesome! Can't wait to see it all when it's finished.

  4. I love love how HSTs look, in all their configurations. Congrats on the awesome $2/yd fabric score - I love that kind of serendipity!

    That toadstool fabric is fabulously adorable.

    Happy WiP Wednesday - I really like your WiP post headings/layout. May have to borrow the idea...

  5. Your post is such a fun one to read because it's so well organized, haahaa, you have it all listed well. I really like the quilting on your raiders quilt, It's fun to do the loopy.

  6. The HST looks great! And don't you just love quilting karma like finding that backing you wanted? It was meant to be. : )

    Thanks for linking up, have a great week!

  7. I really like how you set the half squares in that block. My son is a Raiders. Hope he doesn't try to get your quilt!!
