Work In Progress Wednesday: November 30, 2011

Nothing like a long holiday weekend for sewing! I didn’t realize how much I had accomplished until I sat done to write this post.

Check out Freshly Pieced for more WIP Wednesday goodness.

Current Projects

2011 Memory Quilt: One more block complete, representing Christmas Gift #2.

2012 Memory Quilt: One more block complete, representing Blueberry Pie.

Blueberry Pie: I am using Blueberry Pie as my leader/ender project, so the piecing of the back is slow going.

Christmas Gift #2: I was able to baste and machine quilt this table runner in under two hours! I can see why machine quilting is so popular!

Christmas Gift #3: The top is finished and now I need to baste it.

Color Book: I pulled this out and started piecing the front cover. I need to finalize my plan for the embroidery before I can move forward.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. WOW you did get a lot done on your long weekend.

  2. Great progress! Good lucj getting everything done on time. :)


  3. Beautiful work! I especially love the look of the color book. For your memory quilts ... do you make a block for each of the projects you work on? Sounds really neat.

  4. Oh, glad to see you have a cover started for the color book! And you are making good Christmas progress - good for you!!

  5. The color book looks like a fun project. I like the idea of memory quilts.

  6. Love the Memory Quilt blocks...not normally a Christmas fabric fan...but I like this.

    Great work and such a neat idea!

  7. It's fun when you realize that you actually DID complete a lot! It looks great, Rachel.

  8. Great job! It does feel great to get things finished, aye?! Keep up the good work. I am interested in what the "colorbook" is, I will have to check back to see I guess!

  9. You are doing well getting the blocks put together
