WIP Wednesday 10.9.13

I've been super busy!  I didn't even have time to post last week's WIP Wednesday.  Here's what happened this past two weeks.  I'm excited to say that I have had a lot of finishes lately.  I have decided to quilt for others now.  Recently I have taken on EIGHT quilts to longarm, plus three more for charity and one complete quilt for a niece of a friend!  I'm very excited about this.  Although I won't be posting pictures here of all the quilts, I'm still busy!  I finished my Lucky Stars QA at Quilt Story.

I finished my Split Decision baby quilt.  (I have enough blocks to make a second!)

My Easy Street quilt is finally on the longarm frame.  It's 25% done.

I completed the October BOM for the Quilt Doodle Design QA.  Here's all my blocks so far:

I finished quilting my fall tablecloth.  A little binding and this will be my Friday Finish.

I'm still sewing together triangle blocks for my Modern Trees at Christa Quilts.

I mailed my one Boomer Block from The Block Lotto.

I specifically went into a Salvation Army store this week to get a cd/cassette player and speakers.  Look what great find I got for $7!!!  What a great deal.  It sounds great too.  Now I can set the tunes and longarm away.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Wow you are busy! Wonderful that you are taking quilts on to longarm too :)

  2. I can't believe how many projects you have on the go! I would not be able to keep it all straight - even with a list. Good for you, Kathy! Your quilts are all lovely and that fall table runner is gorgeous! Great find at the thrift shop. What a deal!
