W.i.P. Wednesday #9

I can't believe how fast the time is flying by! Wednesday again already! :)

Finished: 
I did finally finish my picnic blanket!! Yippy! You can read more about it here. I need to take some better pics though... Besides the ones taken outside with my phone, I took them at night, so they're not the best.  But we are enjoying the quilt!

& In Progress:
I also finally finished one mug rug. I started it forever ago, and now it's done, and in my shop. :) I have two more on the way... almost there.

I used Riley Blake's Happier collection and some Kona Cottons.

My step-sister got married last Friday. She was Beautiful!! I made her a gift... which I still need to give to her (as well as finish up the finishing touches). I'll blog about it later.

I'm getting so close with the Lola's Coin Quilt!! I am super excited about this cute little quilt. I finally got around to making the applique for it. I think it will turn out superb. I just might have to do more things like this. Fun times.

Another in progress project: to blank walls.  I've been thinking a lot about it lately, and have come up with a few different ideas. It is still definitely in progress but you can read more about it here and here. I also have started scribbling a few ideas for some wall hangings. I think I want to try paper piecing them, though I don't know how so we'll see how they turn out. Lol. You'll never learn if you don't try right?!

mostly with sun rays. What could be better to brighten someone's day than the sun?!

I am also working on the kaleidoscope quilt along. Though I still haven't finished cutting all the fabric out. I guess I still have until tomorrow. :)

I also decided to be a little crafty and started making up some Thank You cards. A lot of family and friends have given us girl clothes for our Little Lady, and I need to send out some cards. :) I think they're turning out kind of fun. Card making definitely is an art form that I am not very good at. But it's still fun none the less.
