WiP Wednesday #20

How did it get to be Wednesday again already??  Where has the week gone?  I suppose that's what happens when you're busy figuring out how to make cookies without butter or margarine still taste good and look like cookies (still working that!).  Hop on over to Freshly Pieced to see what everyone else has in the works!

Finished this week
Drunk Love MHC quilt

In progress
Supernova QAL - All caught up on cutting and trying to wait patiently for some piecing instructions tomorrow!

Prints cut and ready to roll for Supernova QAL

Spiderweb bee quilt - Actually making some progress here.  I've got all of the center kites made, all of the papers are cut out, now I just have to sew.  A lot.  One 1/4 block done, just another 71 to go.

Lily's Quilts QAL-inspired color wheel doll quilt - I'm getting all kinds of indecisive about this one now that I've decided who I'm going to make it for.  I've got some leftover papers from making my spiderweb papers, and I was kind of thinking that I might add another inspiration here - Lee's pillow tute - and make a scrappy, stringy kind of version, but still a color wheel.  Hopefully I can get decisive real soon here!

Bottled Rainbows QAL - All of the blocks are made now, just need to back them all with batting and put some more blocks together.  I've got five all put together now, another 11 to go!  I highly recommend this little quilt-along, it's a lot of fun and a great way to use up even those teensy tiny scraps you never thought you'd use but couldn't bear to part with!

Bookshelf mini quilt tute - I've gotten as far as picking fabrics, now I just need to get started.  Most of the math is all ready to go, thanks to my first bookshelf mini.

April do.Good.Stitches blocks - This month's pair of blocks are inspired by the below, made by the fantastic Katy of I'm a Ginger Monkey, as a swap item for one of our circle's quilters.  See the diamond pattern made by the white blocks?  Our blocks will make that same pattern, many times over.

Super secret new quilt project - I've been busy with my sketchbook this week.  I'm not really sure what's going to come of it just yet, but I am going to keep it under wraps for the moment.  I can say this much - I'm super excited about what I've sketched so far!!

WiP Wednesday #20 Recap
