WIP Wednesday

I'm finally doing a Wednesday work in progress post, even though its Thursday in Australia  !!

When I was struggling to do posts for my poor neglected blog last year I always thought I could just do a WIP post and link up to Freshly Pieced but I have never managed to do one ... until today  !!

I have so many works in progress right now so maybe its just the right time :)

These are the projects I've been working on this week.

First up is The Starburst Quilt that I'm pattern testing for Jess at Elven Garden Quilts

The Starburst Quilt pink and green

its just fabulous - the blocks are huge, finishing at 32 inches...I'm doing four blocks to make a lap quilt.

The Starburst Quilt plum and yellow

they're really fun and surprisingly quick to put together.  I can't wait to see this top put together - yes, I'm not even considering the quilting yet - have you seen my 2015 wish list !!!

another WIP is my Hazel pillow - I joined in Angie's Hazel QAL a few weeks ago but as I had other commitments didn't get it finished in time to link-up !

I also had a drama with a dirty iron - gggrrrr ! not quite sure what happened but my iron had marks on it when I pressed the glasses (I suspect its maybe glue from interfacing !) so those marks transferred to Hazel - I sprayed and soaked immediately but it didn't have any effect - so she is getting a bow after she has been quilted.

I'm also going to use pompoms around the edge of this pillow for an extra bit of fun - fingers crossed that I can find lime green pompoms !!

I also spent most of the last week working on The Betsy Travel Bag.

I'm pattern testing this gorgeous bag for Kristi of Schnitzel and Boo and Rebel Media !

The Betsy Bag

The pattern will be published soon so I'll be able to show the finished bag then and I'll also be having a pattern giveaway to celebrate.  Kristi has plans for a Betsy Travel Bag QAL over on instagram which starts on 1 April.  I'll have more details soon.

  1. You were very buzy... and all looks so nice. I'm looking forward to see the finished travelbag... like the colors, your fabric combination and especially the small flower quilting.


thanks so much for visiting and leaving a comment ♥
