WIP Wednesday

Welcome to another installment of
Work In Progress

The baby quilt top is complete and has been added to the top of the "to be quilted" pile.

Also to be quilted:
Zig Zag Friends

This will be included in my Modern Quilting Lecture to demonstrate how the different designers play so nicely together! Lots of boys here: Kaffe, Philip Jacobs, Joel Dewberry. Some girls, too.

Sugar Wave
New Wave pattern with Sugar Snap fabrics.
Or maybe New Snap? (not)

Meadowsweet Dresden

I thought I would love this most of all, but I should not be allowed to set blocks on point. Ever again. See the wrinkles in the corners of the blocks? Boo.

The last two Saturdays, I was helping out at Girl Scout sewing workshops. My friend Carolyn and I didn't help plan them, but were called in at the last minute to cover. So we were stuck with patterns we would not have chosen for 10 year old non-sewists.

Here are my samples of the bag (Simplicity 5151)
and doll's sundress (Oliver & S).

Definitely cute, but a lot of work to try to complete in 2 hours with 16-20 girls and only 3 or 4 machines. It took us 3 hours both weeks. Everyone went home happy!

The annual amaryllis!
This year, we have 3 flower stalks!

Wow, you have a serious green thumb! I love your amaryllis! Your New Wave quilt looks great - "New Snap" totally gave me the giggles. Happy WiP Wednesday!

Becky said...

aww, the doll dress is so sweet. I haven't attempted doll clothing yet! Seems like it would be hard to work so small. Great amaryllis! I think ours died last year. :(

Such bright, beautiful quilt tops! I just love how they look against the snow, especially the zig zag one.
