WIP Wednesday 3.21.14

Still chugging along.  This week is Spring Break.  I'm busy hanging out with my almost 7 year old!  But I still managed to get a few things done this week:
I finished my Star Surround QA at Happy Quilting quilt.  This was my March goal for 2014 Lovely Year of Finishes.

I saw a tutorial for panties by Penny from Sew Take A Hike.   It was just too cute to pass up.  I decided to mess around and use my Accuquilt Drunkard's Path die and make these.  Click here to see how I did it.

I picked out my fabrics for the Triangle Quilt Along that started this week at The Sassy Quilter.

I threw my blue/green with a little orange scrappy jelly roll race quilt on the quilting frame and used a new template called Ribbles from Circlelord.  It quilts it loose and makes the quilts fluffy.  I finished the quilting on this quilt and now need to trim and bind it for the H2H charity, Happy Chemo.

Then I made some more underwear...  (something I never even planned to do)
