WIP Wednesday: Taking It Easy. Kind Of.


Yep, I said I’m taking it easy. Oh, except for redesigning my blog. And releasing two patterns. And decorating the house for Christmas. And going to see Santa and doing some Christmas shopping and making next year’s photo calendars for family. Huh. I did say I was “taking it easy,” didn’t I?

But you’ll notice what isn’t on the list above: sewing. After last week’s Quilt-Con-entry sewing frenzy, I haven’t been too motivated. Thus, my brand of “taking it easy.” LOL.

Rock N Romance notebook cover
So anyway, I don’t have much to show here this week. I did whip up my next Art Gallery Fat Quarter Gang tutorial, which will be on Art Gallery’s blog on Monday. I’ll be showing you how to make this covered sketchbook or notebook—the perfect gift for an artist in your life.
My first pattern!

I want to thank all of you for the great reaction to my first pattern, Kissing Fish! The pattern has already been downloaded more than 350 times since I posted it on Monday. If you haven’t downloaded it already, you can do so for free on Craftsy or Threadbias.

Cartwheels pattern

And don’t forget to come back tomorrow, when I’ll be releasing my next pattern, Cartwheels! The pattern includes templates for paper-piecing the Cartwheel blocks, along with detailed instructions for making the quilt in three different sizes: Baby, Lap, and Twin. And I’ll be giving away three copies of the pattern starting tomorrow, so stop back for a chance to win.

So, how about you—what’s on your to-do list this week? Whatever you’re sewing, link it up here! Just remember 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 great week!

    I love your blog re-design. It really looks great. I just went through one myself. I also feel you on the business of Christmas. I did finish my calendars though and now I just need to wrap them. We still need to visit Santa yet though:) I love the notebook and maybe I can squeeze one of those in for my daughter yet for Christmas this year:)

    Congrats on the new pattens. The kissing fish looks fantastic! Do you mind if I link to that on my blog and send a few more people your way to check it out? Good luck with the new ones – you certainly have an eye for color!
