7/20 WIP

Its been over 6 weeks since my last WIP. Part of that time was spent on a 6 state, 6000 mile road trip where not a lot of sewing (none) was done, although I purchased a BUNCH of fabric. Today's report is going to be more of a re-set of status to move forward.....


This is part of the stack of fabric purchased on the road trip.... so if purchasing is an accomplishment, I got lot done!

New Projects:

I started this in late June but never claimed it. I used scraps from my Vintage Spring and H2H quilts and just started sewing. The 16 blocks are now sewn together and measure 60" square. I am deciding if I want to add a border or two to make it bigger.


My priority is to work on Hands 2 Help quilt, originally planned as a D9P, now to be a modification of the pattern.... we'll see....

Vintage Juki Spring quilt top is completed, I need to put together the backing and get it quilted, after the H2H is done.

Two blocks completed for Bottled Rainbow this week, yea!

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

Stats for now: New Projects - 1 : Completed - 0 : WIP - 13


  1. I would consider purchasing a bunch of fabric as the FIRST step in sewing. Fabric stores on trips are so fun! Love your rainbow blocks and your other projects.

  2. Welcome back from your trip! Love the fabrics that 'followed' you home. I am loving your H2H quilt pattern. that is really neat and simple.

  3. Of course purchasing fabric is an accomplishment! And I love your bottled rainbows!

  4. I think that's very good progress! Your Bottled Rainbows are looking lovely =)

  5. Pretty bottled rainbow blocks! And the log cabins are lovely too. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : ) And welcome back!
