So with that being said, let's start off with WIP (work in progress) Wednesdays. I have a horrible habit of starting something and not finishing it. And then finding a new project and forgetting about the first one. Maybe I'm subconsciously terrified of finishing something and finding out that I messed something up. But here are some things I am currently working on:
My favorite project right now is my Lemon Squares quilt from fresh lemons. I am in love with yellows and oranges and when I found this pattern on Faith's blog after I had picked up some beautiful Dear Stella Mimosa fabric it was fate.
I first cut out all the pieces and separated them into each block. I then chain pieced two sides, pressed the seams, chain pieced the other two sides until each block was done. I have 6 sets of 6 blocks total. I am now currently piecing together 6 blocks into a row. I hope to finish all the rows this weekend and start sewing them together. I'm super excited to see it all done.
I am also slowly sewing on the binding to this beauty by hand. It's my first real quilt and I used a quilt as you go method. It's in rough shape, but it's just for my boys
My husband and I used fabric paint and put my oldest's handprints all over a piece of canvas. It will become a bag for my grandmother once I wash it.
And here is a zig-zag quilt I am working on for my sister's birthday/Christmas present. Her birthday is the 22nd, so I usually just get her something nicer instead of two smaller things. She helped pick out the fabrics and lay out. It came together pretty quickly by using 6 inch wide strips.
I realize it is now Thursday. I had all of these pictures on my phone, but I never got around to uploading them. I really need to get a new camera. These pictures are pathetic. Look out tomorrow for my first completely finished quilt! I will share the whole process (and only a few photos). Thanks!
