W.i.P. Wednesday {3.14.2012}

I took a nice long sewing break over the weekend! It was so nice. :) I was really feeling a bit burned out from working on so many projects, but that definitely didn't last long! Want to see my new favorite WIP???


I decided to jump on the Granny Square bandwagon, but knew I would never finish a quilts worth of them. So instead I just made it bigger! Each of my blocks are made up of 9-patches, and it has a 5" boarder. I know just how I'm going to quilt the border, but NO idea how to do the center. Any ideas??? I think this will be a fantastic little baby quilt. It will finish up at about 35" x 35".

I was able to use a good amount of scraps for it... and will definitely be entering it into the Scrap Attack link party. I need to finish up a few other things for that too! (I like that they don't have to be finished quilts, just finished tops! Takes off some of the pressure. ;))

I have a bunch of squares that are already cut up that I'm thinking of making another one of these little quilts. Perhaps in yellow, grey and aqua? Yes please! :)


I really despise cutting... moan. So whenever I have to do a lot of it I figure I might as well do everything that I have waiting to be cut!

Here are all the squares for Hunters new twin sized bed quilt!


I am really excited for all these colors. The prints are good, but the colors are great. I think it will make an awesome boy quilt, and hopefully he'll like it for years to come. I'm going to do an enlarged "+" design. Each block is cut out to 6.5" x 6.5". I'm crossing my fingers I have a good variety of colors and that I can fit them all together well. :)

Starting more quilts is probably not the thing I should be doing right now, but quilts are on the brain! I have 3 quilt tops in the closet that are going to get quilted this month! I'm determined!!!!!!!!!!!! (I was going to stop at 3 "!", but that just was not enough!) :D

Anyway, I don't know that I finished anything up from last week. I guess my FTLOS quilt and stuff, but I'll show that later...

I got this awesome box in the mail today!!! Wahoo! :) I'm drooling! Want to know what it is? Come back tomorrow and I'll tell you... and I'll let you know how it can make a stop on your doorstep too! :) Don't we all love mail???!
