WiP Wednesday #6

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Not as much done this week as I would have liked but I did meet a goal for the week so that's a plus! Oh, and thanks again to Patty at A Stitch in Time! I won two mini charm packs of Sherbet Pips this weekend in her contest. Hopefully it will be here today; I've been saving my 'oohs' and ahhhs' all week long!

Ongoing Projects:

Top for Random Reflections quilt: DONE! This was one of my goals for the week so I am ecstatic! Now I need to work on the back.
I mentioned it already this week but, my Road to Spring quilt is pinned and ready to be quilted. I was going to go ahead and start on it but it's not really due until July so I keep putting it off for other projects.
Also, I have done no work on finishing the borders on the Charm pack quilt. Sigh... too much to do and not enough time.

No more progress on my string quilt.
I got fabric cut out for my green bag for me, but didn't get very far before figuring out that Teacher Appreciation week was this week. So I had to come up with some gifts quickly.
I used Keyka Lou's cute pattern to create these sweet little wristlets. I figure I'll put a gift card in them as a year end present. One more to go...  Oh, and I took one to Girl Scouts last night to show a friend who also quilts. Another mom loved it so much she wants me to make her one to give the school nurse next week for Nurse's Appreciation Week! Her daugher is diabetic and the nurse has been wonderful with her. She also has me making two purses for other friends.

New Projects:

Okay, I have gone through about three projects in my head for using this fabric. However, I finally made up my mind. I'm going to use it to make something I created. I've created a couple of designs over the past month or so but finally decided to create one to see if it works.
This just shows a little hint of it. And I now have no choice because I've already started cutting the fabric. No turning back now!

On the Road to Spring quilt: Pinned and ready; just need to start quilting it.

I love that Keyka Lou pattern, and yours look great! It's one I haven't used yet, but it's been on my to-do list forever.

Those greens are going to look great with the black & white.

Very cute wristlets! I love the Random Reflections quilt top. And thanks for the reminder about the Road to Spring quilt. I need to add that one to my list.

I like the green/black/white that is starting to develop.

Too bad I can't stop over in Atlanta and do some brainstorming with you! Maybe even talk about quilting a quilt. Thanks for your note re: my WIP today.

All the best. MARLENE
