WIP Wednesday!!

Great week!!! GREAT WEEK!!! Yea!!! I love a great week! Here's some of the fun...

Sprocket Pillows:

I made these pillows for my kids on a sleepless night, using THIS tutorial from Cluck. Cluck. Sew. They turned out SOOOO cute!



And the kids haven't stopped playing with them! Seriously, they keep these pillows with them at all times! I love it!!


Bottled Rainbow - 2 blocks done!!
Lime


Purple (plum? I don't know - I guess the other purple one was eggplant? Whatever...) :)


I am just loving these blocks! I have 9 done, and have to keep stopping myself from plowing through the rest. Slow and steady, right - then I get to enjoy the process more...

Super Secret - WOWZA!! Folks - I am ecstatic to announce that the top is DONE, and I have finished quilting it!!! Yea! I was terrified at my quilting plan. It's all FMQ, with some really artsy moments. I was scared about doing it, but it really turned out great! I am done with the quilting and I am SO thrilled to KNOW that it will be finished by next week (the big day is May 12!!) So, obviously - the big reveal with be next week!!! Stay tuned! I am so proud of this monster! ;) Okay, here's a (very small) sneak peek!!


Okay, not much a peek at all... Muahaha!


Well, that's about all for this week! Happy WIP Wednesday! Be sure to check out the other amazing WIPs at Freshly Pieced!!

The pillows are terrific and the fact that the kids love them makes the pillows even nicer. Can't wait to see this quilt. I am scared every time I just sit down to practice FMQ so I can imagine how you felt about doing that quilt. Glad it turned out great for you.
