WIP Wednesday

For those who remember I participated in the Dog Gone Cute Blog Hop over at Sew Fresh Designs, that ran through October.  The quilt along, which ran through September, generated lots of interest.  Now all those people who have made something from the lovely Lorna's pattern have a chance to win!!  I have entered into the linky party over here and VOTING's now open!! 
Of course, I would love for you to vote for me .... but why don't you head over and see some of the amazing creations and decide for yourself who to vote for!!!  Hint:  My entry is No 30 .....
As a visual reminder, this was the quilt I made from the pattern, Cats and Dogs, for my daughter's birthday.

I had a very productive weekend in the studio finishing of two Project Linus quilts, here, here and here, and also working on a couple of WIPs.

At the beginning of November I sent off my package for the Schnitzel & Boo mini swap.  It arrived safely with its new owner yesterday  and, thankfully, she loves it!!  I have made some ATC cards to swap in the past and once I have sent them off I wish I had one for myself.  This time I made some extra squares as I was going along and now just have to finish it off.  It's not going to be an exact copy but more a reminder of the swap.

Then I finished piecing the top that I started at a Project Linus sewing day in August. 

All the blocks made on the sewing day

On my design wall waiting to be pieced together

And finally onto Christmas things ...... I have made a start on one of the Advent Calendars.  OK so it's a small start having just cut and ironed the pocket seams but it's a start nonetheless!!

I bought this when my youngest was 1, she recently turned 9 - whoops!!  It is an item on my Finish Along Q4 that I will be really pleased to tick off.

Linking up to Let's Bee Social and WIP Wednesday today. x



  1. You've been very productive!

    All the dog quilts I've seen have been cute! I wish I'd participated but had too much going on at the time.

  2. A start is all it takes - love your dog gone cute quilt!

  3. I'm sure your daughter was just thrilled to the moon and back with this lovely quilt! It came together quite quickly!

    Uuugghh... Advent calendar. Something that I learned only when I came to Germany, and I love the idea of them and how nice they look, but get a little weary in doing 48 somethings of whatever I decide to do. The "uugggh" was not towards your project, but towards the "oh, no" realization that I got to get going with it on mine.

    Great WIP's this week!

  4. Such great WIPs! I particularly love the puppy quilt, nice job! Good luck on the advent calendar :)

  5. You are really going to town on the Project Linus quilts. Wow! Those blue and purple/pink blocks are super sweet, Abigail. Can't wait to see what you do with them!

  6. What a small world! I just bought that very puppy pattern! I saw it on a blog, GrannyMaudsGirl, a connection from StashBee, which is how I just met you, and I am about to make a photo memory quilt with one of the pups on it. Wow. I love the crisp, clean look of your blog, photos, and writing style. Your quilts are so pretty and professional. Sounds like a blog crush... ha! Looking forward to connecting this year in StashBee, Happy Holidays from the Rocky Mountains of Idaho.
