WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
I'm so excited to finally be participating in WIP Wednesday! I've been admiring everyone's updates for a while now and I finally got it together to make my own update.
I definitely don't have as much going on as everyone else, but am up to my eyeballs in my current projects. You see, when I start something and am super into it, plus it's actually acheivable, I pretty much get obsessed with it until I'm done. And here we go...


Warm Cool Quilt Along - progress
Jeni's Warm Cool Quilt Along immediately grabbed my attention! I absolutely adore her and her blog (plus little bunny foo foo, George, is adorable!). I've apparently gone crazy and committed to the twin size. I have a thing for quilts I can snuggle under...especially since the hubs pumps the a/c at 72 degrees! Yikes!

I've trimmed about 120 of the 352 blocks. Yeah, don't remind me.

LouLouThi Tiles Quilt Along
Here's my other project, the LouLouThi Tiles Quilt Along from Stitched in Color. I cut out and labelled all my pieces, and stuck them up on my new design wall. (More on the wall another day.) I've been giving this one some attention, in between sewing, ironing, and trimming blocks for the Warm/Cool. It gives me a nice break. This one will definitely be a monster....almost queen size!

How are your WIPs?

  1. I can't wait to see both of those. I want to do the Loulouthi tiles one too (although the smaller size) and the warm/cool one has my attention as well. We'll see. Too many ideas not enough time!

  3. There's something so satisfying about seeing a pile of trimmings beside our blocks--so glad you included that photo in your post today.

    The Loulouthi looks terrific, and it also looks like you're having a lot of fun playing with the fabric (isn't that what really counts?).

    i wish my husband pumped the a/c at 72! Ours is set at a sweltering 80 - my quilts sit at a distance from me, just looking pretty and begging to be used until about october!

  11. I don't get in near as much quilting as I would like. I have a quilt I want to start as well as a table runner....maybe this week?

  12. Wow, you're doing even a bigger warm/cool than I did! Impressive! All that trimming is not fun though. The Loulouthi tiles look great too. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )
