Works in Progress Wednesday

I'm a bit attention deficit with my sewing at the moment. A bit of this, a bit of that and not too much that I can show you yet.

Firstly I'll tease you with a little taster of  a project that I'm working on. No details yet, but I love how its coming together!


Next I can show you the progress that I have made on the ladybird and butterfly baby quilt. My lack of planning and foresight is threatening to disrail this project, but I am determined to make it work in some way, shape or form. 

The problem is that I have run out of almost all of these fabrics, so I need to use other fabrics for the large butterfly and ladybird.Then I need to work out how to put all the random differently sized blocks together.

When I showed the blocks that I have made so far to Mr Tartankiwi and explained that I have sewed myself into a corner, he just smiled. "You've done that before" he said "You'll find a way out!"

I hope he's right!!!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.

Oh, and lets not mention the Sampler quilt?!- OK? 
(No progress!)

  10. Look forward to seeing what you make with the books block. I've just finished a Library Bag with selvedges as books, but I did mine with appliqué, instead of paper piecing.

  13. Pretty books block! My eye is always drawn to those now that I made one for a Bee Happy mate (Natalie) last year. And I'm curious to see what you make yours into! I don't think she has finished hers, yet, but the blocks were a-MAY-zing! This is SUCH a fun way to show personality and have a little fun with blocks. :)
