W.i.P. Wednesday: In for a penny, in for a pound

We had a rough start to the school year so sewing time has been limited lately.  These Out to Sea Penny Square blocks were a sanity saver!  They whip up quickly and it's fun putting together different color combinations.

I made enough to make my usual lap sized quilt but with a lot of encouragement from my peanut gallery I decided to go big and make a full-sized version for Audrey's room.  Think long and hard about skipping the twin beds and  putting your kids in full and queen sized;-)

They're outgrowing my design wall but it'll shrink once I start sewing everything together.  Only 4 more penny squares to make and I'll be ready to start laying them out and sewing them all together.  Can't wait!!!

Stitching along with this week's W.i.P. Wednesday:-)


  1. That quilt is going to be gorgeous! I love out to sea and the way you have put it together is great!

  2. I've made an Out to Sea penny patch too! Yours looks great! It's a fun pattern!

  3. Wow - look at all those tiny pieces! I love the fussy cutting you have going on here

  4. I agree, I love the mix of these patchworky pieces with the fussy cuts - and the fussy cuts are so fantastic, especially the sail boats. And now I am definitely going twin when the time comes!

  5. OhMyGossh -- I LOVE how you've used the Sarah Jane fabrics! I have a lot of them, but not that ship -- darn it -- it, with the map make your sweet little quilt. Too, tooooo cute!!!!
