WIP Wednesday #13

It’s been a pretty slow week around my sewing studio.  Last week I found out that my job is being phased out.  That got me pretty down, so I didn’t get much sewing done.

I did do a little organizing, but haven’t gotten far enough to uncover the bike path quilt back that’s still MIA, ugh. I got all my solids together in one box, which is really awesome, now I don’t have to go digging for them all the time!

The one project I actually did work on is a new one.  So much for getting my list down…This one is a birthday present for my friend April’s daughter who will have her 16th birthday this month.  April isn’t able to give her a gift herself, so I offered to make a quilt as April’s birthday present to her.  I do (try to) sell quilts in my etsy shop, but I always find myself much more motivated to work on gift quilts.  I’m pretty sure the ability to give someone the gift of a quilt- filled with your time and talents- is the very best part of quilting.

The rest of the list is just sitting where is was last week:

  1. Bike Path Quilt
  2. Blue String Quilt- in the floor frame
  3. Baby Blue String Quilt- in the travel frame
  4. Green String Quilt- waiting for a frame
  5. Black String Quilt- waiting on a frame
  6. Scrap Quilt
  7. Baby Bears Quilt
  8. Rainbow bright String Quilt
  9. Spirograph Napkins
  10. Stacks of pillow tops
  11. Stacks of embroidered blocks
  12. Little Birdie Embroidery Blocks

Until next time, Jill
