WIP Wednesday: Guest-Hosted by Katie

wipwednesdaybutton-5

Hi, everyone! Lee tells me today is August 1, so that means it’s my turn to stage a (friendly) takeover of W.I.P. Wednesday. I’m Katie, and I blog over at Katie’s Korner.  I live in Alabama with my husband and our 5-year-old son, and I work full time as a copy editor for a magazine. Stop by my blog and say hi!

My crafty time has definitely been limited this summer (I know I’m not alone!), but I did manage to make some progress this week, especially on some bee blocks.

Finished:
Star for Kati
Pioneer's compass for @the_blue_chair !
I made this bee block for Kati using this pattern from EQuiltPatterns.com. It was definitely a challenge, but I’m happy with the way it turned out.

do. Good Stitches July block
Cracker scraps for do. Good Stitches.
Meg requested Cracker Scraps blocks using Angela’s tutorial (a welcome change of pace from the paper-pieced star!)

House block

The hosts of the do. Good Stitches circles are having a little swap. I sewed up this Jane Market tote for my partner. I need to make another small item for my partner, and the deadline was…yesterday. Eep!

    All your blocks this month were a little intense, but you did a fabulous job on them! And your swap partner is going to be thrilled with that tote!

    I like all of your blocks. I love the bag! Bags seem to be the in thing to make right now. They have so many neat patterns at the quilt shop that I would like to buy—sigh—if only I had the money to just spend spend spend!

    Gosh, that star is GORGEOUS! So striking! I know it's a lot of work, but the results are fabulous!
    And your tote is huge! When our do.Good Stitches bee did a swap, we just did zipper pouches. I'm glad we didn't do totes! 🙂
    Thanks for hosting this week!
