WIP Wednesday: November 2, 2011

I should have named this blog “Sewing When I Should Be Sleeping,” because that’s what I’ve been doing lately. I may be tired, but at least I’m making progress!

Check out Freshly Pieced for more WIP Wednesday goodness.

Current Projects

Blueberry Pie: I finished this quilt top! I am very happy with how it turned out. Now I’m piecing the backing.

Call Me Crazy {36/42 blocks complete}: The blocks for this quilt are nearly done! Usually I get bored with piecing blocks before I finish a top, but not this time.

Christmas Gift #1: Due to a bout of insomnia, I was able to machine quilt this already. Just need to add the binding and I’ll have one Christmas present done!

Christmas Gift Bags: Ten gift bags are in various stages of completion. I’m going to keep making gift bags until either it’s Christmas, or I run out of Christmas fabric.
