WIP Wednesday – January 23

Another Wednesday is upon us and I have actually been pretty productive….

I finished up one of my PHD’s (projects half done) just in time to give to my Mom for her 82nd birthday next week.  It is a small lap quilt that she can use to keep cozy while watching TV or reading; or even as a table topper if she likes.  I call it the Surprise Quilt; because of how it came together.  I had some leftovers from my Sew Out Loud Quilt along and thought that I would use them for the back of that project.  However, it is a wall quilt and you will never see the back and my hubby said that the blocks were too pretty to never been seen.  So, I made a small quilt.  “Surprise!”  What do you think?

Surprise! Quilt. Made with 'sew out loud QAL' leftovers. #quilt #circa1934 #stars

 

Secondly, I received a happy phone call from a good friend of mine informing me that they were expecting child #4.  What joyous news!  I made quilts for his other babies, so of course I need to make one for this new little girl!  I had a layer cake of Aneela Hoey’s “A Walk in the Woods” and thought it would be perfect.  I kept the design fairly simple to let the cute fabrics shine and it is now ready to be sandwiched and quilted.  I am so happy for this couple!  This is how it came together…

That’s it for this week – but I feel pretty good about my accomplishments!

Now head on over to Lee’s Freshly Pieced and see what everyone else is up to.

Until next time, Connie :)
