I’m Back!

Geez I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted! I’ve been busy taking a class on preparing taxes (even though I’m a CPA – company policy!)…I won’t bore you with the details. My grandmother had a quintuple bypass (open heart surgery) a week ago and is still in the hospital. I was fortunate to be able to use a buddy pass from my inlaws to fly home to Mississippi to see her for a few days.  And in 6 hours I start a two day long “Policies and Procedures” class for the tax company.

I have a baby clothes quilt in the works – here is the mockup:

And I’ve also been cranking out some of Anna’s gathered clutches for Christmas presents! I so love her pattern.

What have you been up to?

WIP 10/12

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I’ve decided to start making lists for WIP Wednesday like some other people do. (And please forgive the iPhone pictures in this post!)

In Progress This Week

  • Brayden’s baby clothes quilt – I’m delivering this on Saturday and I know Sarah (Brayden’s mom) has seen my blog before, so I don’t want to spoil the surprise. I will share the two “sneak peeks” I sent her yesterday:


    Ongoing Projects

    • Mystery Quilt at Quilters Club of America – Directions are posted every Friday. Here are my fabric groupings: 

      Completed Projects Ready for Quilting

      Completed Projects Ready for Binding

      WIP 10/5 {My Birthday!}

      Ok I know it’s no longer Wednesday, but it was my birthday so I’m allowed a pass, right?

      I’m in the home stretch of Brayden’s baby clothes quilt and wanted to show you a (really) rough draft of the top (sorry for the cell phone picture):

      And a few letters I pieced for the back, spelling out his name:

      I plan to have this done by Monday night, so I’ll post the completed quilt then.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      One-Yard Wonders: Summer Nightie

      For my next project from the One-Yard Wonders Sew Along over at Pink Chalk Studio, I made the Summer Nightie designed by Rae Hoekstra.

      The fabric on the cup area is High Society – Victoria by Anthology Fabrics. The bottom is some random fabric I’ve had forever, and I made the bias tape out of some pink satin-y looking fabric my grandmother gave me a while back. I also lined the cups with this pink fabric.
