WIP Wednesday

Welcome to my weekly status update, hosted by Lee at Freshly Pieced. Since I added the WIP page up top, I don't list all the "on hold" WIPs here. It was taking up too much space! We'll just look at what is really being worked on.

Mom's Birthday Quilt: I haven't made as much progress as I had hoped on this one. This Grandmother's Flower Garden is her 20-year old WIP that I'm finishing as a surprise. Will it be done by Saturday? Yes!!


4x5 Modern Quilt Bee: As I was getting ready to put away the portable design wall, I realized that I never showed you all the wonderful blocks I received. I figured I'd better show them to you before the next round starts. I love the colors, except the border on my own block is a little too dark. I'm thinking about playing for one more round so I'll have 12 blocks. But if I'm still having fun, I might do the full year for 24 blocks!



Teeny Weeny Paper Piecing Bee: Sadly, this bee has come to a close. I'm waiting for one last block, then I can figure out to do with these cute 6" blocks.


I'm off to volunteer at church today, and hopefully get a little quilting in this afternoon. Pete starts Driver's Ed today! Eek!

Now, off you go...

What a wonderful thing you're doing, finishing you're mom's wip. Last year I inherited numerous wip from my mom, I've loved working on them. Awesome that she gets to see it.

Beautiful bee blocks, all around. And congrats for getting this far on your Mom's quilt--those hexies take a long time to do!
