WIP Wednesday

I tried to post this earlier today, but Blogger wouldn't let me upload my photos. Grr. Did errands and had a drink with a friend. (Peach iced tea at Dunkin'- yum!) Hope you're enjoying a lovely summer day, too!

Start & Finish:
Camera Strap for the new camera. Not too girly so the boys can use it, too. Assuming Julia and I ever put the camera down long enough for one of them to use it!

New Projects:
4 X 5 Modern Quilt Bee- I'm glad I joined this bee, but what was I thinking? That darn peer pressure! All the cool quilting bloggers are doing it! Here's my Pink & Orange inspiration mosaic for the bee. (If you click on it, you will be taken to Flickr, where you can get the links for each photo.)
Pink & Orange Inspiration by Tina ~ Seaside Stitches

Teeny Weeny PP Bee- These paper piecers are my peeps! How did it take six months for me to find them? I signed up to make 4 blocks in July and asked for 6" star blocks in return. I went with the same colors as the 4x5 so I wouldn't have to stress over choosing another color combo!

Nonna's Garden- Making progress! All the corners are pieced but need to be attached. Then I need to find a darker green to border the whole thing.

Kaleidoscope Quilt Along- All cut and ready to sew. I did sew one block to see if I liked it. I do!

Wedding Ring Star- no progress, but I did move the bin to a more prominent shelf. My mother asked me why I am not working on it. I don't have a good answer for that. It takes too much effort to keep the pieces in the right order? I have to think too much? I'm afraid I'll mess it up? I know I need to bite the bullet and work on it soon. I do own a couple of seam rippers, after all, and I have successfully completed this pattern before! This really needs to be my top priority for the rest of the summer.

Girl Scout Quilt- no progress. Today is officially the first day of summer vacation (I know- finally!), so I need to invite some girls to come over and work on their blocks.

There is so much inspiration in your mosaic! Love the color and all those pretty blocks.

Your Nonna's Garden is darling! As I look at your stats it makes me feel better. It's good to know I'm not the only one with high numbers. Thanks for sharing!

LOVE, LOVE the colors and setting you use on your GFG! Fabulous!
I am working on a large quilt but it is tempting to make one as yours. Thank you for inspiration!
