work in progress wednesday

I have been attempting to keep my sewing area (aka my dining room) a little more tidy so I haven't accomplished as much as I would have liked this week.  I have a hard time getting everything out to sew, and then having to put it all away every single day.  Hopefully one day I will have a dedicated sewing space.

1.  I did finish this queen size wonky cross top.  It has also been basted and I have even done a little quilting.  There's a long way to go with that though.  I am doing straight lines and I have found it to be much less boring if I just do a little at a time.

2.  I started about 80 more flying geese for my daughter's quilt.  

3.  Last night I made 2 converging corners blocks for the September quilt for the wish circle of do good stitches.  I think this was a great block to use for the bee because I don't think I would have the patience to make an entire quilt worth of these!

4.  One new project is that I am going to be participating in the Travellin' Pic Stitch blog hop.  
The only English paper piecing I have ever done with Christmas stockings.  I guess I should add these to my WIP list since before I pulled them out this morning, I thought they were done.  Oops!

But I enjoyed it.  I am also looking forward to a project that doesn't require me getting out my sewing machine.  I am going to make rose stars.  I don't know how big my project will be, maybe a mini quilt, maybe bigger depending on how it goes.

5.  I have signed up to do some swaps.  In addition to the DGS wish circle swap, I have also signed up for Mouthy Stitches and Pillow Talk Swap round 9.  I think I am a little bit addicted to swaps.  But I am looking forward to meeting some new people.  I am still waiting for the partner assignments for these last two and I am hoping to get started on something for my wish circle partner this week.  

My goals for this week . . .
  • work on quilting the wonky cross quilt, I will be happy if I am about a quarter done by this time next week
  • start and hopefully finish something for my wish circle swap
  • finish up the flying geese for my daughters quilt
  • take a photo for the travellin' pic stitch blog hop, the color scheme is supposed to be a photo of something unique to where I live so I guess I need to do some exploring 


  1. Love the Christmas stockings, can it be the time of the year when I think to think of getting ready for Xmas?? Already?

  2. I love the converging corners blocks. I've had that one bookmarked for a long time, though it sounds a bit tedious.

  3. loooove you cross quilt - on of my favs. Also love the stockings - are they from Camille's pattern? If so, I made one too -SO cute!

  4. You have a lot of fabulous projects going. I particularly love the wonky crosses.

  5. I really like your wonky cross quilt. Those colors are great!
