WIP Wednesday

This month is flying by and for once I don't mind, as fast approaching is the Fat Quarterly sewing retreat in London and I can't wait!!!!  Thanks to a weekend of nights, I had two kidlet/work free days to indulge in sewing ( I probably should have done some housework as well...), this was good for my WIPS.


Tumbling little apples quilt for Siblings Together:
All this needs now is the label on the back which I will pick up at the FQ retreat in two weeks.  There is loads of information on the Siblings Together charity on  the Flickr page.

Baby quilt:
I used a couple of Stoery book prints for this quilt and some Kona white to make a super quick strip quilt.  This is with my sewing buddy who I bribed persuaded to hand sew the binding down for me ;-) (She likes to hand sew, I don't!!)

Camera case:
Made with the Keyka  Lou pattern and some pretty Summersville.

Fat Quarterly retreat sample swap:
I thought that the Tiny bag from Jeni's pattern would make perfect gift bags for the magnets.  I used the underground print and the Crown prints as it will be the Jubilee weekend in London when the retreat is on.  I am now thinking that I should have made a set of these for myself!

The Tiny bag to be filled with magnets!

For those who are wondering where the pretty ribbon went, they looked crap as the ties.  I gave them to my sewing buddy as part bribe to get her to sew the binding on my baby quilt ;-)


No progress: 

Circle cushions - no progress.

Granny runner - have changed my mind on the Pezzy binding and am going with some Summersville instead.  This is today's sewing project, if I don't get distracted.

Half moon Modern quilt - Is on the Long arm as I type - getting very excited about getting this back!

In the pipeline:

Hand stitched class with Rachel from Stitched in Colour - starts in June.
