WIP Wednesday 11.12.14

I'm still plugging away at my Celtic Solstice quilt.  The back is going to be one hodgepodge masterpiece.  There's parts of the back of this quilt EVERYWHERE!!!  The desk, the machine, the floor, the couch...   EVERYWHERE!

I made the letters "R" and "S" for the Little Letters QA at Temecula Quilt Company.  I'm happy to be so current on a quilt along. It's progressing nicely.  Three little letters to go!

I found my Frosty & Friends WIP box.  It only had the heads done with the hats and half of the buttons.  I sorted and worked and got it to this point.  These will make nice teacher gifts!

This is a pattern by Debbie Mumm.  It is in a book from 1992 called Quick Country Quilting.   You can also find a FREE pattern on Debbie Mumm's site FREE here.

Here's the quilt I made for my son's kindergarten teacher last year:

I loaded my blue sampler quilt onto the longarm frame.  I quilted it with Circle Lord Jesters.  All done with the quilting.  Now to trim and bind.

Speaking of QA's, with the RSC14 colors of light blue, I made a four light blue rows for a doll quilt QA.  You can learn more about the mini fun at Humble Quilts Blog.  It's called Cascadia.  Here's my rows for the first clue.

Here's the other blocks that I got done this week for the RSC14.  LOVE these kite girls!!!

My WIP count this week is still 34.  My WIP goal for New Years Day 2015 is 19.  Uh oh, I've got a ways to go!  I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!
