WIP Wednesday

Visit Lee's Freshly Pieced blog for more WIP fun!

I have been quilt busy sewing this last week, mostly finishing up the baby quilt. I put it in the mail yesterday. As soon as I know she has it I will post pictures.
I have also been working on making more Stay Put Kitchen towels, both for me and for gifts.

The Table topper has been languishing in a basket but I will be pulling it out this week to put some more layers on the blocks.
Here is one of the log cabins that needs the last round of fabric.

I made a book cover for my church manual, a sort of experiment, that I need to do again, because it was a little too small.

My husband and I have been watching back seasons of Monk and Psych in the evenings, so I have been working on hand quilting the In-Spur-Ation quilt from way back when. I have just 2 blocks left. Well 3 actually, since I need to rip out the terrible machine quilting I started out with. My stitches are inconsistent and very large but it gives it a very rustic look. This may be the only quilt I hand quilt. I am going to love it though. It is backed in a super soft flannel and it has been so cozy underneath it while I quilt!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your log cabin - beautiful colors! One of my favorite thinks about hand sewing on a quilt is that I get to cozy up under it...just plain happy!

  5. I love the fabrics you're using for your table topper. That log cabin block is gorgeous! Can't wait to see it finished.
