WIP Wednesday: I’m Back!


Oops! Today is Wednesday, isn’t it? Between adjusting to the new school year schedule and coming back from my WIP “vacation” over the summer, I completely forgot to post this earlier! Ahh, so many things to think about, not nearly enough space in my brain for all of it. : ) Sorry about that.

At any rate, I’m thrilled to be back to hosting WIP Wednesday! I missed you all! But I have to admit, the break I took for the past few months was pretty nice. : ) And I hope you enjoyed “meeting” some new bloggers and seeing their lovely projects. I want to send out another big thank you to all of my guest hosts! In fact, this summer’s experiment went so well, I’ve decided to keep it up—I’m going to continue to have guest-hosts on the first Wednesday of every month. I’ve got a fabulous slate of bloggers lined up for you:

Oct. 3: Debbie – A Quilter’s Table
Nov. 7: Svetlana – s.o.t.a.k. handmade
Dec. 5: Elizabeth – OccasionalPiece-Quilt
Jan. 2: Heidi – Boys, Buttons, and Butterflies
Feb. 6: Jenelle – Echinops & Aster
March 6: Claire Jain – Sewing Over Pins
April 3: Natalie – Greenleaf Goods

But for now it’s all me. And what have I been up to lately?

Candy Coated from Sunday Morning Quilts

Here’s a fun project that’s coming together quickly—this will soon be my version of “Candy Coated,” the cover quilt from Sunday Morning Quilts
by Cheryl Arkison and Amanda Jean Nyberg. Come back on Monday to see the (hopefully) finished quilt during my stop on the Craft Books Month blog hop!

Improv block with Oakshott Rubies
I’m still making lots of these little improv-y log cabin blocks with my Oakshott Rubies …

Stack of Madrona Road

And this week I cut into this massive stack of Madrona Road yumminess! This is one of those collections where the more I look at it, the better it gets. Pink Castle still has lots of Madrona Road in stock, but it’s going fast!

Your turn! What have you got going on? 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, you must 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 WIP Wednesday links. Because what fun is a linky party without comments? : )

Have a lovely week!

    Hope no one gave you a hard time!!! We ALL get busy sometimes. I was frantically driving boy #3 to tennis try-outs yesterday, and when I got there the courts were empty. Checked my email…sure enough…it is NEXT week. At least this time I was just too early instead of late, right?

    The colors you are using for Candy Coated are beautiful. Look forward to seeing what you do with Madrona Road, which I love and have and have not cut into yet…

    You had Cindy and I going this morning, wondering if you were okey-dokey. Glad you are. Madrona Road must be on the brain! I'm working on my MR quilt right now too. I'm thinking I need to go and get some more. . .

    Happy Wednesday, Lee. The weekend's not far away–
