WIP Wednesday 1.18.17

Here's what was accomplished this week:

I still haven't started any new projects this year.  I know... I'm shocked myself!  Lorna's QA is tempting me and calling my name.  I'm holding back (for now...) even though I printed the cute stocking pattern and put it in a binder...

I finished Stars Stripes & Other Things quilt.  You can read about it here.

I completed the block for the week (4/25) for Pat Sloan's Winter Solstice QA.

Some of my sewing never gets a photo.  But it happens a lot.  Here's a picture of three things that needed repaired/hemmed/altered in some way...bottoms:

I finished all the hand stitching on my Candy Cane mini.  Now for some simple machine quilting.

After making a purple Soul Searching block that I can't show because Julianne from Quilting with Calicos and I are swapping QUILT TOPS soon! I made some plus blocks with left over 2.5" strips for the RSC17.

I finished this little top.  My neighbor gave me a kit:

On Monday I started Moving It Forward Monday --moving things forward on this project and made a building... no roof, no sides, no chimney...

But my moving it forward I just kept going on Tuesday.  You see, the building above was keeping me from putting all these blocks together.  Now about 1/3 of the quilt top is done!

You've really gotten a lot accomplished this month. That mending sewing is always so boring!
