{WiP} Wednesday ~ 48/52

I haven't WiP'd in a while because I've been so busy working on the in-progress projects. :)

But first, if you are visiting because of the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day, WELCOME!! I'm glad you're here! ;) If you're a regular, be sure to enter the giveaway on my previous post.

I'm giving the Hope Takes Flight quilt to the church on Friday, so I want to take some more artistic shots before I hand it over. Here's a quickie that I took today when I was on my way home and not prepared:

Hope Takes Flight (Faith circle ~ Sept 2012)

I like the juxtaposition of the modern, bright quilt against the backdrop of the dingy, antique farm house.

And...I've got huge piles of bee blocks to make since I spent a large part of November quilting that quilt!  I was definitely in too many bees this year! One of them is ending in January, though, so that's good.

We got the fabric for the Modern Quilt Guild's Madrona Road challenge. It's VERY lovely. I am really quite tempted to say it never arrived. Think anyone will notice? ;-)

Does anyone else feel like they have a sewing disorder? A little binge, a little purge where you sew, sew, sew, sew, and then can't even begin to go into the room once you've finished a major project? That's kinda me right now. :)  No rest for the weary, though, that's for sure! :)

And then there are Christmas presents for the important ladies in my girls' lives. I'm planning on making coffee cozies.

And, of course, sewing the other butterflies into the second quilt...

OH...and I've got a little idea up my sleeve involving a charm pack, but I don't know much about new fabric lines coming out, so I need some suggestions. Can you please recommend a charm pack or fabric collection that has a great variety of bright colors in it? Because we all know that I'm all about variety of bright colors!  Something similar to Notting Hill by Free Spirit or Oh Deer by MoMo.  Thanks! :)

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced (for the first time in a long time!) for her WiP Wednesday post. Hop on over there and see what everyone else is working on!

  1. Oh, that challenge fabric is really pretty - I can totally see why you are tempted :-)

    Maybe Snap Pop by Sandy Gervais or Simple Marks by Malka Dubrawsky would work for your project. Not a huge variety but maybe enough.

  2. Have fun with the challenge! Love that random quilt v farmhouse pic too.

    Good luck with the list :o)

  3. I am itching to get my hands on that Madrona Road! I don't even know what we are supposed to do with it, but I want it! (Granted I already have a FQ bundle of this sitting in my stash but... LOL I want more!!!) Good luck on your bee blocks and your quilt is GORGEOUS! I need to make one just like that myself (without all the issues you had with it though). Did you finally nail it to the spray baste?

    1. Oh, yeah. The Madrona Road is really pretty. Much more so in person than what I've seen online.

      I didn't nail it to the spray baste, yet. My plan is to spray baste some fabric that I'm not attached to, and (attempt) to make a quilt. If I can quilt it, then I'll blame it on demons possessing the quilt...and if I can't quilt it, then I'll just set it on fire, and feel better about it all. :)

  4. Found you from the do.good stitches Flickr site. I am your newest follower. Love your compassion towards these young girls. Thank you for posting the stats. My heart is there too. Blessings on you as you sew your blocks. I am part of the Heal circle of do.good stitches.
    Look forward to your next post ; )

  5. I really really love the picture with the farm house.


What are you sewing?
