WIP Wednesday 5.1.13

Really?  May already?  Where has the time gone?  Even though my WIP list looks huge, I have had a ton of finishes this year!  Let's keep them going!  Here's what happened this week:

I finished the Buckeye Beauty baby quilt.  This was a mystery quilt done with Made With Love by Mary blog.

New Project
1. Finding Nemo Scrappy Trip  LOVE LOVE LOVE this pattern!!!  I made great progress.

I can't believe I already finished my May block for 2013 BOM of Quilt Doodle Designs!  This is my favorite block so far in this BOM quilt.


I volunteered to quilt a few quilts for our local quilt guild's charity drive. Here's the little pile of quilts I selected from the LQG stash:

This one is all Christmas prints. It should be easy to make a back for this one out of my stash.

This is a simple panel. I made a back for it already this week!

I should have some browns/creams for this one. Easy peasy. I'm not sure how I'll quilt this yet.

Although this one looks simple, it will be more challenging. The blocks are hand sewn and most of them are coming apart on the end.  I reinforced all the seams at each end.  I will be backing this with Three Blind Mice fabric from my stash.  The back is already cut for it.

This one will take a little bit more planning for the back. But we'll get there.
I also found this old panel in my stash and cut a simple striped back for it.
I completed my MMMRR13 and mailed it to the next quilter.  Whew... glad that is done!

I'm also linking up with WOW on Ester's blog


  1. Wow! I can't believe how much you got done in April. I keep seeing Scrappy Trip quilts on blogs and have been resisting the urge to start one. I really love the way the orange blocks float in your version.

  2. You certainly have a lot if things on the go. You do seem to have it under control though.
