Work In Progress Wednesday

The move has killed my sewing mojo and I really need to get going again.
Yep, it is time to get back into the swing of things with my quilting and sewing and doing a WIP post seemed like a good way to get organized.
I have way too many things that are in progress!

This summer I had 2 of my tops quilted by The Alford Inn Quilt Shoppe and Retreat. Just an all over quilting. I was so happy to have them done!
Now I just need to trim and bind them.
The first one is my Sew Cherry Sweet Road to Ireland quilt that I made for my youngest. She knows it is hers and when I pulled it out to take pictures this morning she was so excited to see it again. And was so mad when I put it back in its bag. :)

It is quilted with an all over large stipple.

 This one is the Sherbet Take 5 quilt. This is my first pieced quilt. And it is all mine. :)

 She quilted it with a variegated thread that I loved, in a big, swirly pattern that I have since forgotten the name of.
 If you look closely at this picture you can see the different colors in the thread.

Here is some of my WIP list:
