Works in Progress Wednesday - 12-12-12

Ah, there's nothing like WIP Wednesday to hold one accountable, eh? It's been three or four weeks so it seems like a lot.

There's still time to enter my Quilting Gallery Blog Hop Party giveaway, if you haven't had a chance.

New Projects:
Su{Brrr}nova: I've always loved this Supernova quilt by Lee at Freshly Pieced and now I'm making my own! First block here, three more blocks here, and below are a few more. Thanks to Pam from Mad About Patchwork for some more Snowflakes in Red, I was able to finish the centre block. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Pam! Now, just two more blocks to do!

Centre Block

Jelly Belly: Top and backing are done and ready to be basted.

Completed Projects:

Paint Chip Placemats
Paint Chip Placemats: First handmade gift done!

Wee Spy - Butterflies
Wee Spy Bag
Commissioned quilt: I finished the Wee Spy quilt for my friend's cousin and it's currently wending its way through the postal system to its new, adorable owner. I'm thinking that she'll have a lot of fun doing tummy time on this quilt. I'm excited that this commission has led to another commission. :D Yay!

Wee Spy - Butterflies Back
Super cute butterflies for the backing

Wee Spy - Butterflies Front
Spring Green for the front
Colour My World Blue: This month's Colour My World Challenge is blue and I thought I'd work on my free motion quilting. It's coming along well so far and I'll share it on Friday for the link up!

Rough Seas

Current Projects: 

Travellin' Pic Stitch Blog Hop:
The Travellin' Pic Stitch Blog hop is done -- what a fun idea! My block is appliquéd on a white background, but that's about it. Thinking pillow, but maybe bag. Thoughts?

Seeing the Forest for the Trees Quilt: I figured out what to do with the layout, but it means doing four more blocks.

On Hold/UFO Mash-up:
Don't Worry {Bee} Happy Bee - Two of my beemates blocks arrived this week and they look great! Can't wait to see the rest.
Appliqué/Quilt/Paint Thing
Mini I Spy Charity Quilt
