What’s Working on Wednesday

It’s been a week for small finishes. I’m not complaining, because I’m really happy with any finish.

First up are these drawstring bags.


I also made a few more of these tea wallets.


I made this wristlet bag, but I’m not sure how I feel about it. I think my pattern might need some tweaking. Maybe shorter or wider?


This week I’m linking up with WIPs on Wednesday and WIP Wednesday.

What’s Working on Wednesday

Still doing a bit of Spring cleaning here this week. Lots of organizing and rediscovering things.

On the organizing front I finally found more jars for my zippers.

I also made a scrap bag from my ever growing leaders and enders pile. I paired the squares with some chocolate Osnaburg and a bit of orange top stitching.


While I was cleaning off my cutting table I found these crumb blocks I’d started for V’s challenge and forgot about. I think I was going to pair them with black Kona but now I think I’ll use a lighter color.


And I also finished this WIP!

What’s Working on Wednesday

Now that tax season is over I am spending some real quality time in my sewing room.

I finished this small scrap wall hanging that was started some years ago. I’m not embarrassed to say that, at least I finished it!

It even has a scrappy back.

I’ve made another drawstring bag. As I didn’t have enough of the red rick rack I wanted to use, I used the rick rack stitch on my Bernina.

I finished this scrap mug rug made with batiks scraps I found while doing a bit of sewing room Spring cleaning.

Today I’m working on quilting a few WIPs that have been hanging in the guest room for quite a while. I have 8 pieces that need quilting and I’m really determined to get them done!

What’s Working on Wednesday

I’ve started a new quilt because Spring just isn’t coming fast enough for me. It rained here this weekend, it’s raining today and rain is expected for the next two days. So I really needed to see some flowers. (I know April showers bring May flowers)

I chose a charm pack to make a quick patchwork quilt. It’s Gypsy Girl by Lily Ashbury for Moda. Lots of flowers and fun prints in this one.


I used every 5 inch square in this pack which is unusual because in most charm packs there’s at least one print I’m not fond of. Most likely I’ll pair this with a bit of polka dot and my usual Moda muslin.

I chose to go with the Orchid, Chartreuse and Navy blocks for last weeks donation quilt. This picture is a little washed out the colors are a bit brighter in person. Please excuse the gigantic cat head in the bottom right corner! LOL


I will piece this one today and find a backing so I can have it quilted by next week, maybe (still have to do my taxes).
