W.i.P. Wednesday: A Fresh Start

September always feels like a fresh start.  I've still found time to fit in some sewing this summer but it's kind of been all over the place.  It feels like a good time to reassess and plan for the rest of the year so here's a round up of what I've got going...

I've actually may pull off a few finish from my Q3 list for the 2015 Finish Along.  Driving to Maine this weekend I quilted the last block on my Beatrix Potter quilt so it just needs a binding.

The binding is on A Walk in the Park.  Even with Labor Day traffic coming home I didn't finish tacking it down but I'm so close.

While I was at it I pulled all my scraps to make a coordinating pillow.  The top is together and ready to be quilted.

And since it's too hot to quilt when I spotted the new collection of low volume Modern BQ Paper at Quilter's Way I went back to work on my Sunkissed Strawberry Fields quilt.  The top is all together so I just need to piece a back and that will be another one for the TBQ pile.  It's getting a bit out of control so I'm thinking October should be all about quilting...

but that may have to take a back seat for this bundle of Cotton + Steel awesomeness.  I need another Halloween quilt like a whole in the head but I'm Spellbound;-)

Getting focused with this week's W.i.P. Wednesday:-)


  1. Your quilts are awesome! I love your color selections. Looks like you got a lot done in the car.. hope you weren't driving! LOL

  2. I love your pillow made from scraps :-)

  3. I love your rainbow scrap selection. What a great way to use them up.

  4. Your Walk in the Park quilt is so cute! I have a lot of those fabrics in my stash, and the ones I don't have, I wish I did.

    1. Well, I guess it's the pillow top I'm looking at. Can't tell much about the quilt but judging by the scraps it must be gorgeous.

  5. Loving what you did with your Kate Spain fabric. I have that somewhere! I need to find it. Spellbound is awesome. I can't wait to see what you do with it!!

  6. Great picture of your hand work on the Maine Turnpike! I find that road SO long and boring! I always need a project to work on! The quilt top is lovely!
