WIP Wednesday 9.1.21

I'm so excited that my WIP list is down to 51 projects.  That may overwhelm some of you, but in the past it has been up as high as 92. I may not be the fastest finisher, but I am knocking them out one at a time.

This week I finished my Scrap Crystals quilt.  You can read all about it here.  Scrap Crystals is a pattern designed by Bonnie Hunter.

I have decided that my OMG for September will be a Christmas quilt.  That will give me enough time to finish it if I procrastinate as much as I have been doing since this spring.  I started this quilt March, 2021.

Bricks & Stepping Stones is a FREE pattern by Bonnie Hunter on her blog on the free patterns tab.  You can find it here.  

Here's the funky Christmas fabric pieced back I made for the Bricks & Stepping Stones quilt. Christmas flowers unite!

I got all of the Frankenbatting sewn so that I can someday load my friend's quilt onto the longarm frame.  She really likes to challenge me on little side projects...

I'm linking up with Susan at Quilt Fabrication for Midweek Makers.

I now stand at 51 projects on my WIP list.
