WIP Wednesday – November 7th

Hello again.  Here it is Wednesday and I have some new quilting to show you…

Firstly, I have made progress on my ‘Spring’ wall quilt.  I assembled a pin wheel and checkerboard block and hand appliqued the rabbit, complete with a yo-yo for his tail.  I have started hand appliqueing the flowers – two lily type flowers are complete, and I still have the leaves to add, as well as a bit of embroidery for the details on the stems and blossoms.  I decided to use ‘heat & bond’ for the letters.  They are a bit complicated to be hand appliqued.

Secondly, I started playing with a pack of charm squares of ‘Countdown to Christmas‘ by Sweetwater for Moda – they are soooo cute.  I really didn’t need another holiday themed table runner, but have been seeing some of the cutest pillows on Flickr of late, so I made up a couple of pillow covers of my own design, for my sofa for the holidays.  They are wonderful.  I am so happy with them.

Status on other projects:

* Envy Quilt – backing fabric has been found, ready to baste and quilt. (no progress)

* Surprise Quilt – looking for backing fabric (no progress)

What have you been up to?  Join me and head over to Lee’s blog @ Freshly Pieced and see what everyone else is working on.

Til next time, Connie :)
