WIP Wednesday: With Guest Host Emily of Mommy’s Nap Time

wipwednesdaybutton-7

 

Hello! I’m Emily and I blog over at Mommy’s Nap Time. I’m really excited to be guest hosting WIP Wednesday this week!
This week I have a lot of projects up in the air – halfway done, partially done, nearly done. That’s the way it goes. I like to go from one project to another frequently! It’s been a crazy week this week with school starting and my guild’s retreat coming up this weekend. I’ve been in plan/pack organize mode!
Here are some of the WIP’s I’ll be bringing with me to our retreat. Some of them are brand new projects, and some are just begging to be finished!
Lindsey’s Quilt – project bag. Even the binding is prepared!
Lindsey’s Quilt – I need to piece the back, baste and quilt it! I am pretty confident I can have this one big finish at the retreat!
Bella Bella {for someone special} quilt – this is a long-term project. It requires a lot of attention to details. I’m hoping to draft patterns for another paper pieced border. Perhaps I may even sew some of the pieces for that border. I’d be happy just looking at it once in a while at the retreat!
Scrap bins to make mug rugs
13 Mug rugs. These have been commissioned by my MIL for Christmas gifts. (The payment for these is helping me make my way to QuiltCon this winter!!!) They’re for my MIL’s employees + co-workers. I have free reign over design. I’m hoping to try some new things and let my guild member’s projects inspire me.

 

Figure 8 Scarf. I really can’t wait to make this one. It’s taking self restraint to not finish it right now. My friend Emily and I decided to make them together at the retreat! That’s always fun!
I have some fabric cutting, pattern testing, and a couple secret projects to work on too. Too many to list here. I like to have variety. I’m not used to being able to sew for hours at a time. I’m so used to breaking up my projects into little increments of time that having a huge chunk of time for sewing is fabulous. I get too ADD to focus on just one project!
Finishes of last week (no longer on the list!!)
  • RATZ Swap  – name tags finished!
  • August bee block – finished!
  • Super secret project – finished!
Now it’s your turn to link up. Here are the rules:
1. Link up any post from the past week that features at least one unfinished work-in-progress (WIP)
2. Somewhere in your post, link back here to my blog. (Or grab my WIP Wednesday button for your sidebar.)
3. Comment on at least a few of the other links—because what fun is a linky party without comments?

    Your projects are so fancy! That Bella Bella is amazing! The quilt kit with even the binding ready to go seems like a great idea. Have fun on your retreat!

    Thanks to Emily for guest-hosting! I love the scrap buckets you're using for your mug rug materials – did you make them or find them somewhere?
