WIP Wednesday 5.28.14

After today there are only two more days of school for this year.  I did manage to finish quite a bit of odds and ends this week!

I finished one Thomas the Train panel for our LQG. 

I've been very, very busy with my new PETS!  I know they are farm fowl, but I LOVE them already.
I added 13 chickens to my four peeps.  Here's some of them.  I'm busy building fun little shelters and things for their pen and coop.

  My helper is getting a kick out of it too!

I made three "cheater" Drunkard's Path blocks for the Building Blocks QA.

I got all caught up on ALL of the remaining blocks for the Spring Sampler @ Cora's Quilts:

I worked on this little scrap project for the RSC14.  It's called Petit Jardin.

I collected green scraps for the RSC14 to make a Petit Jardin wall hanging from March/April '10 Quiltmaker  Magazine.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. I have never seen the "cheater" drunkard's path method before. It's kind of cool! And I love your spring sampler blocks from Cora's Quilts. I want to do that so bad but I have a very limited stash right now. I see you're going to do the Nested Churn Dash. I'm in love with that and need to find the perfect fabric!

  2. Your Thomas quilt made me sigh, my Thomas the tank engine mad toddlers are now 16 & 15!
    Love your chickens!
