Work in Progress Wednesday

What a week!  Busy, busy, busy! 

I have loads to share and I have put a few things on the back burner.  I have been feeling very overwhelmed lately.  I don’t know why, I just do.  So, I decided to put a few projects away, concentrate more on my family, and just do to the things that inspire me in the moment.  The pressure I was putting on myself was sucking the fun out my life.  Not cool. 

That being said I do have a few fun things to share with you that I am very excited about. 


Finished Projects

My pincushion for the Bee a {Modern} Swapper swap is done.  You can read more about this Pincushion here.  I break from it was just what I needed.  I just love how it came out.

My quilt for the Modern Triangles Quilt Along is done and you can read more about that quilt here.

New Projects


Doll Quilt Swap 12 – I am in the current round of the Doll Quilt Swap and have been spending most of my free time working on this.  Above is a little sneak peak.  I even did a little block for the back.  I love that I had to challenge myself and jump outside my comfort zone.  In this round they have changed things up a bit.  First, they gave you 5 blocks to chose from the churn dash or shoofly, log cabin, drunkards path, NY beauty, or flying geese.  I picked the NY beauty because it is a block I have never made before and it looked kind of hard.  The second thing they changed was that they don’t want you to use white or off white.  Wait.. what?  No white background?  That is something that is definitely out of my comfort zone, but I can’t wait to share more of this mini once it is finished and in the mail.

On Going Projects


I am still working on my Modern Folder Star Mini Quilt tutorial.  It is coming along nicely and should be ready soon.
