WIP Wednesday

This is my first WIP Wednesday for a long long time, and I figure I better start again cos my wips are threatening to run away with me!

1. Curio Quilt
lots of progress has been made on this one since I last linked up, but I am still less than half way to having a quilt top so must keep going.

2. Bee Portraits
I have received all my tops back, but I haven't done any work on putting them together yet.

3. Nicey Bees
I completely forgot about this quilt until I unpacked my Bee Portraits at the weekend; I started it back in June last year but I gave up on it somewhere near september, I seriously need to catch up and get it finished off; especially as round two has started!

4. Portholes
I committed to myself to doing a whole quilt of these when I saw the opportunity to do Lucie's class at the retreat; I have all the fabrics to finish a top and I have block 1 done.

5. Twin Quilt
Originally this was intended to be the back of my very first quilt, but I decided it would be too difficult to accurately match front and back for my initial foray into quilting so I split it into two semi-matching quilts, I finished off the first one before christmas as a practice for quilting before I attempted my god-daughter's but this one has been languishing in its little bag since then!

Intended Quilts - Fabric Bought, No Progress
6. Swoon
I bought the fabric to do my swoon months ago when everyone was swooning-along, but I didn't buy any backing fabric so I never got going.

7. Pinwheels
As above, I chose my exciting prints and didn't bother with the backing so I couldn't start (then I got sucked into Curio and time flew away with me!)

8. Crab Shack Charm
I want to get started on this one asap, I think a quick and easy top is a perfect way to re-energise myself

9. Blitzen Granny Sqaures
I was luck yenough to received some tiny squares of Blitzen in my goody bag at the retreat (anyone know what the official phrase is for these?) and amazingly Judith put some in as extras with my Crab Shack, as I haven't jumoed on the Granny Square band wagon yet this seems to be a perfect time to join in.

Wow, I knew I had let things slip, but not this much. It feels great to have it all written down though and I didn't even mention my Brit Quilt that is supposed to be what I am working on this summer! Fingers crossed for a magic fairy to come see me this week and have I 9 finished quilts by next WIP Wednesday what do you think? :D

  1. Ah, you still have a way to go to catch up with my 17-and-counting Works in Progress ;) It is alarming how quickly they pile up though, isn't it? You're going to have a fab collection when they're all done :) Look forward to seeing them all! (although if you do get them all done by next Wednesday, I think you'll qualify for a Major Quilting Award ;))

  2. Magic fairy? Try Nicky or Hadley, they always seem to have one ;-) lol Great collection of projects, cant wait to see what you do with your bee portraits!

  3. The first time I saw those little 2 1/2 inch squares on a U.S. blog, they were referred to as petit fours, which seemed quite sensible in the whole (layer) cake / jelly roll sweet-themed Moda pre-cut names. However I'm not sure whether that is their official name!

  4. Now you can start ticking them all off - lists are good xxx

  5. Lol, I keep my big scary list offline, I only WIPW my immediate to dos ;o) Good luck with yours though!

  6. Impressive list you've got going there! ;) I'm itching to see what you do with our faces. Dartboard, two faced or in your face?! ;) x
