WIP Wednesday #2

Just a reminder that my Apron Giveaway closes tonight! If you haven't already got your comment in, you still have a bit of time!  I'll announce the winner bright and early tomorrow morning.

In Progress:

1) Pink and Green Quilt

I finished the quilt top, basting, and have started the actual quilting.  This is my first attempt at quilting, and I must admit; I'm finding sewing straight lines to be quite challenging!  I've given up trying to make it perfect, and have decided to use the excuse of "this is my first quilt" and go with it, crooked lines and all!

Here's a really really poor quality pic taken with my phone.  But you get the idea...

2)  Pillowcase Skirt

This one is at the same stage as last week.  Although now I do have the elastic for it, so I suppose I am one teeny tiny step closer!  I've come to terms with the fact that I'm not going to have it done in time for Skirt Week, so I'll just make it for fun for myself.

Completed Projects:

Up Next:

1)  Wedding Place Mats
2)  Kaleidescope Quilt-Along
3)  Quilt Sampler Quilt-Along
4)  New Bee on the Block Quilting Bee
4)  Retro Trees Skirt (more on this later)
5)  Dresses

I almost forgot that my mom and I had bought the patterns and fabric for 3 more dresses about a year ago...  It's my job to cut the fabric out, then we'll sew 'em up together!  I'm still a little scared of sewing clothing (perhaps more on that later...) but I feel better having my mom, the expert seamstress, at the helm!


  1. I've only made one dress, but it was fairly easy. I liked the New Look patterns for their versatility.

    See you at the Kaleido QAL!

  2. just keep practicing the straight lines..sometimes I wobble when sewing seams.. but hey life is short, don't sweat the small stuff. I will check back to see the dresses.
