WIP Wednesday!

Another week - gone! I feel like this week has been a whirlwind - with a try at a tri (lol!), dance recitals, preschool graduation, last day of school, and on and on... Whew! But, I was able to get a little sewing done too!

Mod Times #2 is still waiting to be sandwiched. I am so excited to quilt it, but I need to mop the floor before I can baste. (sigh...)


I made a new dance bag for my little dancing queen.


I used the "leftovers" from Mod Times #2 (ahem - because I bought the end of the bolt. Don't judge. It was 50% off...) It turned out way cute, and now she can actually fit her three different pairs of dance shoes - tap, ballet, and jazz - into her dance bag! Sheesh.



Cute, right?!

Bottled Rainbows - Moss block



This is block #12!!! 4 more to go, and I saved my favorite colors for last! Yea!! :) I kept this one simple, and I really do like how it came out. I also like that it is mostly Fandango scraps. I love LOVE that line! :)



I really love this project! I am so excited to snuggle under this one! I'm totally going to hog it all to myself!

Also on the drawing board - a simple skirt tutorial and pants to skirt (My hack method) tutorial! Stay tuned for those!


And - I am really excited to join in this skill builders quilt a long!!! It is going to be awesome!!

I'm really enjoying seeing your mottled rainbow quilt come together on your W.I.P day. Its looking great.

Becky said...

oh sigh! I love that purple mod times so much. Love piecing you did on the back. And - I might have to steal your daughters dance bag! ;) I would have bought the end of the bolt too. I puffy heart purple.

Your mod times quilt is looking fantastic!!! Good for you! And I think your daughter's bag is equally adorable, nothing wrong with using every inch of fabric you got, especially with such a deal! If only my LQS knew the definition of a deal - the best sale they ever offer is about 15% off. That would explain why they still have a LOT of old lines that aren't in demand anymore :)

That bag is great! I have been known to buy the rest of the bolt too ... ;-)

Cindy said...

Your bottled rainbow quilt is lovely. What color is next?

Katie B. said...

My floors would never get cleaned if I didn't have quilts to baste :)

Great progress! Love the little bag for your dancer. And Mod Times is looking fantastic!

Bree said...

I so love that dance bag--that fabric is super fun.

I've been seeing the Skill Builders button popping up a lot lately. It looks like a fun series.

Good progress on Bottled Rainbows. I'm still collecting scraps...
