And for the record, it is officially still Wednesday as I'm posting this, although I admit it's awfully darn close to Thursday. But "WIP Thursday" just doesn't sound right!
Here's what I've been working on this week:
Two mini "quilt sandwiches" in Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane, ready to be quilted and sewn into grocery bag dispensers. I'm hoping to have these done by Friday!
I've been adding to my pinwheel collection for the Pinwheel Sampler Quilt Along -
And finally a work in progress that's all in my head at the moment . . .
A nice stack of fabric (Authentic by Sweetwater, plus some Kona black and charcoal) sitting there patiently, waiting to be cut up and sewn into a quilt for the husband. Don't you just love that number fabric on the right? It's just perfect for my husband who's getting his MBA with a concentration in accounting. Number fabric for my favorite number cruncher!
The problem is I just can't decide on a design for this quilt. I was originally just going to make a simple patchwork quilt with the layer cake, but then I decided I wanted to make the quilt a bit larger, so we can both cuddle under it on the couch. The husband is losing hope that I'll ever get around to making this, but I will, I promise! I just have to keep staring at this stack until the right bit of inspiration hits me.
Well, I'd better hurry up and publish this post before the clock hits midnight and I make a liar out of myself regarding the whole Wednesday thing.
