WIP Wednesday / Sew Every Day 9

It's WIP Wednesday, and thanks to Pat Sloan's Sew Every Day challenge, I have two finishes to share!

Mod Bento is done, but she needs a cute name. What about Summer Picnic? Read more about it in this post.

Improv was a fun one day project! If you have not done any improvisational piecing, I recommend the Jackie Gehring class on Craftsy. It's on sale right now!

In Progress:
Sew Every Day 9: Ninnie Nines (guild 9-patch swap), 16 blocks for the third and final round of the swap. I might start playing with all 48 blocks later today!

Star Crazy BOM: When I was rummaging through my book shelf last weekend, I found my Star Crazy binder from early 2010. A hidden WIP! Three months worth of instructions and completed blocks (more than shown below) were neatly tucked into the binder. I quickly drafted a new design to use what I already have. I just have to make a few blocks to complete the design. This project is back on the list!

Pete's Album quilt: I won't get back to this one until next week, when he heads to Cub Scout camp as a volunteer. The following week, he will be at Boy Scout camp with his troop. This quilt will be my focus for those two weeks.

Also on the WIP list, maybe for Sew Every Day in August?

Magenta Dahlias- backing and batting ready for basting.

Swap Soup- backing and batting ready to go.

4X5 swap- just a pile of awesome blocks.

It's time to head back to the machine for day 10. But first, a link up and visit to:
