W.i.P. Wednesday {7/11/12}

It's been a long time since I did a Works in Progress post and linked up at Freshley Pieced. I think part of it is that I never remember that it's Wednesday! :)

I have a whole list of projects that I'm working on for the 2012 Finish Along at Quilter in the Gap. You can find that post here if you want.

Besides those I also need a new purse and picked out some fabrics for it yesterday.

Heather Ross purse

I LOVE Heather Ross and think this would be so fun! Neil does not love it, but I do. I have been searching for the perfect purse for a long time now, and decided to try drafting my own pattern. But there is NO WAY I can cut into HR on a new, untested pattern...

test purse in Denyse Schmidt

so I picked out some Denyse Schmidt fabrics for a practice purse.

I still couldn't cut into that either so I made up a tiny pattern and am using some fuglies to make a mini purse.

I am kind of excited about this! I wanted to link it up to the Purse Palooza, but today is the last day, so we'll see if I make it.

a complete pattern in one
here is the original pattern I drafted, but I've since made a lot of adjustments that I'm really excited about! I love making bags!

I also have this fabric that I am working with for a secret project! mwahaha! I am getting really excited about this one.


Anyway, I think that about does it for this week! Oh, and I also am going to help Marika with a block, but I haven't even started that one yet. Go check out her post and her cause and help her out if you want! It's a great story, ok, a really sad story. Anyway, I love the internet and that it's so easy to help others that you would never ever meet any other way, or even know about. A good reminder that there are a lot of great people in the world!

Happy Wednesday! :)



  1. I cannnot wait to see that purse :) It's going to be amazing, especially with those fabrics !

    And THANK YOU for the link !
    12 people (including you but not me) already said they were going to send me a block or two so I can't wait to receive them. If I could get more blocks, that would be awesome but if I don't, it's ok too. I'll just finish it to get to the size I want ! I'm soo excited about this quilt that I already ordered the backing fabric! I haven't been that excited about a quilt for a long time. Maybe it's because of the fact that it'll be a suprise :)

  2. That is rather funny you pulled out 2 sets of fabric and couldn't cut into either of them! Good thing there are fuglies around to save all the gorgeous prints =D

  3. I can never remember that it's Wednesday either. Plus all my WIPs are unfinished because of lack of time so taking time to make a list seems silly.:p
