WIP Wednesday

This is my first time trying WIP Wednesday, after watching it on a few of my favorite blogs for awhile. Thanks for doing it, Lee!

I helped a friend sew some costumes awhile back, and she gave me a little photo book as thanks with a sweet quote about sewing on the front, so one of my WIPs is this little book:

Keeping a history of my quilts was also inspired by my grandmother, who hand quilted for many years and did over a thousand quilts. I calculated that out, and it is one a week for over 37 years. She is 80+, so I believe, even though that is an incredulous number. I was also inspired by Elizabeth at Occasional Piece and Quilt. You can see her progress on a quilt journal today on WIP Wednesday, too!

Below is the flimsy for an aloha quilt I started a couple of days ago. Sometimes it is nice to just sew squares together. Especially if someone else cut them out, and sold them to your best friend for $2 at the swap meet on Oahu. I often feel like I get nothing done lately, but this is coming together in no time.

I’m also still working on the block of the month for quilt guild, and added a yellow block. I am a few months behind, but maybe now that school has started I will catch up.

I’m excited to go see some more works in progress, check them out at Freshly Pieced.
