WIP Wednesday - the first of February

Pin It Linking to Lee's WIP Wednesday...

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

A peek of a finish!

Pure baby diamonds peek

The baby this quilt is intended for turned one last week... and it inspired me to (finally) get it done!  Full tutorial coming soon (I'll let you know when I know the exact dates)

I've had this quilt in the works for a long time, as you can see that it was done in "Pure" by Sweetwater... but the design looks great in other lines too (as you can see here)


In progress:

- Because Amanda and I are going to sew with Anna Maria Horner on Friday (!!!!), and because Scarlet will be making an interlude there (Mama's gotta sew, but a girl's still gotta eat), I decided she needed a new jacket.

I made the smallest size, and I'm not sure how long it will fit her, but it's cute.  I've decided garment sewing is pretty gratifying and goes MUCH faster than most quilts (despite having a bit of trouble on one of the sleeve attachments).  It's absolutely beautiful.  And if I'm honest, I'm a little jealous of Miss Scarlet, who gets to be decked out in designer velveteen and voile, with imported Japanese double gauze (Naomi Ito for Nani Iro) for the lining.  You must have a mama who really loves you miss Scarlet. ;)

- My yardage to finish up my Rouenneries Deux projects is here.

Here's a peek of "French Kisses"  This is a really quick project to piece, and I think quite pretty. :)  

- I need to get backing done for my practice version of the "French Kisses" design.  This quilt will be going on our bed.  

(Yes, we have had a very mild "winter" this year)

Now I'm off to pick fabric for my AMH sewing day!  I think I might be a tad bit intimidated with my choices... maybe just a *little*

Still don't have my total number of bucket projects counted up, but at least I got one of them done this week! And I didn't start anything new either (at least, not quilts...)

Now go visit our friend Lee and see the rest of them! :)

Did I just see that you are going to the AMH quilt class on Friday in Sac? I will be there too :) I am so looking forward to it. I haven't picked fabric yet. Sigh! A little stressed about that.

I loved seeing little man shirtless. My guys always are and my friend tells me to "get a shirt on them already!"

If baby boy doesn't want his quilt, I am happy to take it off your hands ;)!
