WIP it Wednesday - Week 2

Image thanks to Hawksbill Cabin Blog
Another Wednesday and another WIP update!  I think I like this format, it works well for keeping track.  I can definitely see where I need to tighten a few things up, and I can see progress made.

First, here is an update on where I was last week;

  • Updated - 368 Project.  Last block created on 6/12/2014.
  • Still not complete - Monthly swap of 5 blocks per month.  Blocks are all completed, just need to finish signature blocks and send off June's swaps.
  • Updated - Sample blocks for the next swap. 
  • Updated -Commissioned quilt.  Sew a minimum of 1 row per day.  33 rows to go.
  • Updated and Still not complete-QAYG project from this blog, Span the Distance in Stitches.  We are both a bit behind, so I need to finish compiling the May and June packages for M.
  • Still not complete - Play Time quilt.  I have 1/2 done of this paint chip color challenge.  I want this for my couch, so while I am not rushing, I want it done.  My goal for now is to make 2-3 blocks a week.  15 blocks to go!
  • Updated -Pre-sewing to do for June Quilting Bee with our guild.  We did that today.  It was so fun!  Here is our Facebook page and some pictures from the day.  Learned lots, and will have to make another one or 5!  Great size for an overnight bag, to carry quilting goods (the larger sizes will fit a small cutting mat!) or a baby bag.  Lots of uses!
  • Still not complete -I am in the design stage of a baby quilt 


And This is what I have under the table for this week:


  • 368 Project.  Last block created on 6/12/2014.  I have a ton of ideas to put in 4 inches!
  • Monthly swap of 5 blocks per month.  Blocks are all completed, just need to finish signature blocks and send off June's swaps.  I actually have the sig blocks done, just need to get in the mail
  • Blocks for the next swap. I have 50 Cathedral Windows to make and 48 1/2 square 5 patches.  I would like to do a handful a week.  The swap starts at the beginning of the year, I think, but I prefer to have the blocks ready before it starts.
  • Commissioned quilt.  Sew a minimum of 1 row per day.  33 rows to go.
  • Commissioned quilt - design applique tree.  I finally have an idea I like, but as it will be several feet tall and wide, I will need to draw out a template.  It will be a solid day or 2 with rolls of brown paper taped to the wall and a pencil.
  • QAYG project from this blog, Span the Distance in Stitches.  I need to finish compiling the May and June packages for M.  I got a LOVELY box of goodies from M and would like to get 1 block per week done so by end of June we are both caught up.  Part of the fun was roving.  What would you do with roving in a quilt block?
  • Play Time quilt.  I have 1/2 done of this paint chip color challenge.  I want this for my couch, so while i am not rushing, I want it done.  My goal for now is to make 2-3 blocks a week.  15 blocks to go! 
  • I am in the design stage of a baby quilt that must be completed by July 26th.  I am kinda leaning towards circles.  Want to get the fabrics picked out of my stash this weekend.
  • Mail challenge art quilt to quilting arts.  Has to be mailed this week.

That's it for this week.  Out of 8 WIPs last week, 5 were updated.  This week I have 9 WIPs on the table.  

What are you working on?  How are you doing with your WIPs?  Keep on sewing!
