WiP Wednesday 22 August

Each and every Wednesday I am truly shocked that WiP Wednesday is here again!  The weeks seem to be rushing by at the speed of light these days!  I'm not complaining, definitely not, but it makes me aware (and slightly shocked) that I have so many projects on the go, and they are all at varying stages of completed-ness.  I also have a list as long as both arms of Andre the Giant of "to do one day projects" so these keep me motivated to keep working on all my WiP's.   

This past week I managed to get two more Great Granny squares completed [for the Great Granny Along] which means that I now have five finished - yay!  Only four more to do to make a small lap quilt.  I may decide that I want it bigger but I will decide that once I can see all nine blocks together.  Press here to see my other three.


I have steamed ahead in the Vintage Holiday QAL again, only because I want to link it up with Kelby Sews 'My Precious QAL' as I am using my plaids and snowflakes that I have hoarded for far too long!  I've completed 10 of the 12 blocks so far.  Here are my latest blocks:


And lastly and MOST IMPORTANTLY is my Brit Quilt Swap 3 ~ Mini Quilt.  I set myself a challenge to have it completed for this Friday so I can share it when I host TGIFF so all hands on deck to get it done!  I've done a bit of hand stitching tonight so I'll keep that to myself until Friday.  I hope my secret partner likes what I've done!


I have a few more bee blocks to complete for August [Bee Europa, Star Bee and Kinky Bee] but I am avoiding one block in particular as it is paper pieced and scary!!  ET Phone Home?? I'd rather he texted me so I could ignore it!!  I may cry when I make that one so I'm leaving it to the last minute!!  Not good advice I know but that's how daunting it is!!

Anyways, hope to see you back here on Friday for TGIFF and on Saturday for my giveaway!  Happy quilting!

ET phone home is lovely to do but time consuming :) love the grannies

ET will be fine, don't panic!

You have been busy Amy! Please don't cry over ET. Maybe just take it one section at a time with gin in between. Your reference to Andre the Giant made me smile - have you been watching the Princess Bride or do you have a secret love of bad wrestling?

Time is flying by like nothing! Such a great set of blocks so glad to see progress there! Just tackle ET one piece at a time =D

Love the bits of plaid in the ornament blocks. Everything is so cute! Great job. : )

What progress! I don't know how you fit it all in. The precious vintage ornament blocks look beautiful. Don't panic about the paper piecing you know you can do it. Just double check before you sew! Di x

Great blocks! ET was only my second pp project and it's not scary once you get going - actually I think it's a bit addictive :)

Colette said...
