Works in Progress Wednesday - November 30, 2011

Happy Wednesday all! It's been a productive week and I'm making headway on my Christmas projects. I may not have to move Christmas after all. ;)

I'm working away on my finish for when I host TGIFF! next week. Will it be Just Me and My Peeps? Or Clockwork Orange? Or something else? At this point, your guess is as good as mine.

The talented and funny Laura @ Quokka Quilts is hosting TGIFF! this Friday though. If you've got a finish, you are more than welcome to link up. Check out the TGIF Friday! site for more details.

New Projects:
Micah's Advent Calendar - Not sure why I did this, but I've made each of my older boys their own advent calendar. Therefore, I have to follow suit with Micah. Here's the thing, I don't have a spot to hang three advent calendars. But I've started his anyway - it's a Makower calendar that I bought last year. I just love their calendars. I'll post pictures when I get it done.

Wee Spy Quilt - I've decided to do one of my Wee Spy quilts as a leader/ender project. A third of the squares have been pieced while I was doing my other projects this week. I'm finding it a challenge to get into the habit of finishing with an ender though.

Completed Projects:
Dreaming in Colour Pillowcases for my boys. Two Christmas gifts down. Woo hoo!

Current Projects:

Clockwork Orange/Millennium Rail Fence - I finished the top of the Millennium Rail Fence, now Clockwork Orange. It's not at all what I pictured when I first started this project 11 or 12 years ago, but I'm very happy with where this project is going now. I suspect this is one of those quilts that only the maker will love, but I view this one as a WIP saved. :)

Red and Tan Amish Wedding Ring
Tangled Garden
Spiral/Spring seta colour

UFOs that may one day get finished, but really who knows?
Chop Suey
Wedding quilt
Linus quilt
Nine patch colourwash

WIP Wednesday Recap:
New projects: 3 - Aack! What happened to no new projects?! Christmas projects get a bye, right? And the leader/ender? Well, that's just being practical. :)
Current projects: 3
Completed project: 1
On Hold: 10
UFOs: 4

Thanks for stopping by! I'm linking in to WIP Wednesday at The Needle and Thread Network and W.i.P. Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Let's go check out the fun stuff going on over there.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. I'm making pillow cases also. And like the red/orange strips and their positioning on your rail fence.

  2. Aren't pillowcases fun to make you can be so creative .Love the rail fence :-)

  3. Your list of stats looks like mine, with a lot in the "who really knows" category and a long bucket list!

  4. I like your clockwork orange. :)


  5. Had to chuckle on your comment of having a quilt that is 10 or 12 years old. I won't say how old my oldest UFO is (I can't remember) but it does beat that my more that 2. I know where it is and I really should finish it. It just needs to be quilted.
    Love those colourful pillowcases.

  6. that clockwork orange is so interesting...I am really liking it

  7. thanks for stopping by Michelle....appreciate it

  8. I read the story of the Clockwork Orange Quilt, and no, it's not one only the maker would love. I think it's a great quilt!!~! Then again, what does that say about me?? ;-)

    I never thought about pillow cases as the whole gift - love that!! With a quilt or throw, definitly, but alone?! Now I have tons of ideas to do that too!! Thank-you!!

    have a great rest of the week and enjoy December!

  9. Those pillowcases are so sweet...what an awesome mom you are!

  10. You are a busy bee! Love those pillowcases and look forward to seeing 3 advent calendars!! I've just finishing making one from a kit - lots of fun :)

  11. Oh, i am talented AND funny? aw shucks...
