WIP Wednesday: November 9, 2011

This past week, I concentrated on finishing Christmas Gift #1. I’m very happy with it, but I have so many more I want to make. I better sew faster!

Check out Freshly Pieced for more WIP Wednesday goodness.

Current Projects
Blueberry Pie: I’m trying to use as many scraps as possible for the back of this quilt. I’ve made progress, but it’s slow going.

Call Me Crazy {38/42 blocks complete}: Two more blocks down, four blocks to go!

Christmas Gift #1: This week I finished my first handmade Christmas gift for this year, which was very satisfying. The reveal will have to wait until after Christmas.

Christmas Gift Bags: Progress is slow, but I’m almost done with two bags.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Pieced backs ARE often 'slow' at a time when you just want to get things done! And Rachel - that Christmas sneak peek is darling - whatever it is looks pretty special!!

  2. Can't wait for the reveal on that Christmas quilt. Looks great, what we can see of it anyways!

  3. The blueberry pie blocks look great!

  5. Oh I love that rolled up quilt! Can't wait to see it!

  12. Love that Christmas sneak peek! I really love using up scraps in my backings, but they always take longer than I think they will! I'm sure it will be beautiful in the end :)

  13. I've never pieced the back of a quilt other than rearranging a large piece. I'm going to have to sure keep this in mind.

  14. I always use the scraps for the backs - love doing those. Your Blueberry Pie blocks are stunning!
