What I'm Working on Wednesday


I've been enjoying the rain...yay!!! After such a long dry spell here we are being blessed with rain, and more is on the way. I've been sewing and took advantage of some sun this morning to take a few pictures. I'm working on my A La Mode (pattern by Camille) pinwheel stars...love this pattern!
I finished the front and back of my January Fresh and Fancy Table Runner (pattern by Bonnie at Cotton Way)...hoping to quilt this and get it bound soon; I can't wait to start the February runner as well!

And I've been working with Verna by Kate Spain...this fat quarter bundle doesn't exactly look like this anymore...


I've already started cutting it for the first two projects I have planned. Oh, and I've been doing a little sewing (that I can't share yet) with Fresh Cottons by Joanna of Fig Tree and Company. I love this line...you can see some great pictures over at Kelly's blog and every print over at the Moda website. Hope you have a wonderful day...be back soon!

sigrid said...

I'm loving your blog and everything you're making. I wish I could find more time in the day to do more quilting, but with my 2 year old she wants me to spend time with her rather than my sewing machine. I just started "Year of Schnibbles" so here are my first 2 quilts.
