wip wednesday

This has been a hard week.  I have been working on a project that is much more traditional than I am used to and it was a little hard to keep the motivation going.  I will be sharing it sometime this month. While I am happy with the finished result, it is good to get back to my regular projects.

Sorry about the terrible cell phone photos.

Current WIPs:
  • Yesterday I made an extra DGS block for February to help out someone in my circle.  

  • And started on a quilt that my sister asked me to make for her best friend's new baby.  I was a little scared when she told me the colors she wanted - peach, coral, and mint.  I did not have a single fabric in my stash that was any of these colors.  I was super excited to buy a remnant bundle of Les Amis from the wonderful Amanda and thank goodness for Lizzy House for having a couple of mint colored prints.  This quilt top is almost done.  I'm still not sure how I feel about the colors.

  • Maple Leaf Rag quilt - I cut some fabric for some more rings on the quilt, but haven't had time to do anything with them.

Soon-to-be-started projects:
  • I am going to make a tote bag for at youth auction at my church.  I need to have that done in the next week.
  • Baby quilt for my sister's baby.  I am going to Utah for a visit at the end of the month so I need to finish that one up so I can take it with me.


  1. I love tour block! And the Maple Leaf rag quilt! Such awesome colors!

  2. Really nice stuff Erica. Looking forward to seeing more of these projects. I think I would shudder over peach, coral & mint!! But it looks like a cute design and the colours don't seem overwhelming, at least not in the photo.

  3. Okay I love that orange and gray quilt you have started. So pretty, two of my favorite colors.

  4. woe, some really nice wip's you have going. I like the happy colors

  5. (not woe, wow) or i suppose it could be whoa..

  6. that's going to be a gorgeous baby quilt!

  7. Are you using the scout pattern? I started one in the boys colors and I love it.

  8. you know I've always had a thing (not in a good way) about the material obession books but your maple leaf quilt is amazing and may just change my mind

  9. all of your quilts are wonderful. you have a lot going on.
