W.i.P. Wednesday #15

Before I begin, I have to say Thanks Tannie for your help and direction!! I'm going to check into that further and see if that will make a difference. And Thanks Tammie for the gas for my car! ;) (I love that their names are almost the same! and they're both great people!!) :)

I can't say that today has been any better, but I am definitely excited to post a little update, as I'm ALMOST finished with a few new things!! Ok, they are not new in themselves, but I have finally made some new progress with them! Yippy! :)

First: My Kaleidoscope Quilt! check it out!....

love my good little helper!

The top is finally finished!
I really struggled with this quilt... I don't know what I did wrong, but it seemed like right from the get-go I was doomed. My points wouldn't match up. My blocks wouldn't lie flat. And since I'm kind of a perfectionist, it wasn't that much fun making crummy blocks. But since this is for me, I didn't care enough about it to fix any of it. :) So I just kept on keepin on. I think the last 5 or 6 blocks turned out perfect and I finally figured it out! :) But really it's probably my own fault. I ironed them after connecting the corner triangles to the larger triangles, but after that I didn't iron anything. Nor did I square anything up, nor did I do anything else that I probably should have to make it turn out better. Oh well. :) It was *fun* and now the top is finished. :) I'm going to do the back in medium grey and have a few stripes going down the back like Elizabeth from Oh Frannson! did on her billboard quilt here. I LOVE this!

My other almost finish is the coin quilt I made up a LONG time ago! It has been sitting around waiting for a binding for forever and it's almost done! :) All I have is the top. But I decided to take some pictures anyway.


Do you like my fake wind effect?
the back

It's really this guy that keeps running back and forth under it! :)

For some reason it is impossible for me to get good pictures of anything with orange and teal. Perhaps if I get up before the sun is totally up it will work?!.


thanks for stopping by! Make sure to visit Lee at Freshly Pieced and check out what everyone else is working on!



  1. I love the applique on your coin quilt-the perfect whimsical touch!
    And your little boy is adorable too!

  2. Oh, I think the kaleidoscope quilt looks great! I don't think any imperfections are noticeable. And that coin quilt is very cute with the tree. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )
