Another WiP Wednesday!

The last few weeks have FLOWWNN by!
School and work have me always in high gear.

It seems I don't have time for much other than those 2 things lately- but, I am trying to be true to myself and have been meeting my commitment to myself to sew or do something sewing related at least a little each day! (Now, if I could just get gym time to fall into place! Shameful!)

I have been working on a couple of projects:

Tina's quilt (which I finished, but am doubting.)
The Sugar Block Club blocks (which I am caught up on- for the moment)
And, the new quilt for little A! (the wonderful grandbaby!)

On with the picture show:

I haven't crunched the numbers yet to say how many squares were used in this quilt- but it was a lot. (for me.)
I based the coloring off of Bonnie's Perkimon Daydreams quilt strip-set layout. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. I am doubtful that I added enough border!

Please ignore the scrunched up Orca Bay! I will eventually finish it for Momma, but since she has taken an assignment in Denver and isn't scheduled to be home for a few months, it isn't high priority.

In the bottom- the coloring and varied fabrics really show! I used any darker brown, a couple of dark greens and even a couple of dark blues. I wanted it to have an I-spy quality to it.

The Sugar Block Club blocks were definitely challenging. I had NEVER done any paper piecing before- it was interesting to finish February's block. But, unlike a lot of the people participating, I didn't have any trouble at all getting the block to turn out! It was wonderful- I am super proud!
The picture with the 3 blocks include Jan, Feb and March. All caught up!

Fussy cutting!

 I thought I might share a little fussy cutting and trimming too!
 That is all the pics I have for today, so I will be doing a Really Random post tomorrow (I think! If time allows.) I am really trying to remember to take "along the way" pictures more often, I like sharing the inner workings.
 Sew, till next time!


  1. Paper piecing for the first time is definitely a head-scratching exercise. Your blocks look great!

  2. Loving the warmth that radiates from your quilt top. There is a fabulous glow that you have achieved with the yellows and red. Nice work.

  3. such pretty blocks. I forget to take along the way photos also.
