WiP Wednesday: The one where I try to jump back in

Whoa, I'm feeling a bit rusty when it comes to WiP Wednedsay, but I'm craving that accountability of writing down what projects I've got going on, so here goes...

Finished up:


Improv hexi block for AnneMarie for the {Sew} Beautiful Bee - Well, maybe it's finished. Now that I'm looking at it again, I might add another small hexagon or two in that top piece...

Working on:

Sewing Summit sample in progress

Samples for Sewing Summit
It's less than one month until I hop on a plane to head to Salt Lake City for Sewing Summit, and I'm sewing up a couple of minis quilts and such to bring along with me. I've got plans for at least two more, but we'll see how far I get before October gets here!

Finishing up a Moda Bake Shop tutorial
I'm all done with the project, just need to take some decent pictures, assuming the weather will cooperate, and finish up writing the tutorial, so stay tuned for a reveal on this one real soon.

Getting ready to start:

Tula Pink at Spring Market with her Space Dust quilt
Space Dust quilt
I'm participating in Sara's super fun Tula Pink Sew Along, and I'll be tackling her Space Dust quilt. I am so excited about making this quilt! When I saw it at Quilt Market, I practically swooned. I'm still waffling about my fabric selection, but hopefully by this time next week, I'll have managed to at least pick a color palette!


Another custom red & white zig-zag quilt
A few weeks ago, I got in another custom order for a classic red & white zig-zag quilt. The fabrics have all arrived, so I'm hoping to have some quality time with my rotary cutter Friday night to get things rolling on this one.

What are you working on this week? Write it up and share it over at Lee's WIP Wednesday linky!
