work in progress wednesday

I'm a little late again, but dang the people linking up at Freshly Pieced sure do have a lot going on!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

This past week has been a little uneventful with respect to sewing. I got to meet my sewing buddy in person this week (whom I got through Whipstitch), and let me tell you, I could not be more inspired to keep sewing. She is incredibly talented. She deserves her very own post one day.

I spent most of my weekend working on some hemming for a friend-of-a-friend. I started free-motion quilting my sliced coins quilt after that, and I have been doing so every morning before work. A nice little creative pick-me-up for the day.

pre-work FMQ

I'm maybe a third of the way finished on the FMQ - I'm taking the tortoise path for this one :)

I also worked on cutting the last bit of clothing for the memorial quilts, dividing all the squares up for each quilt, and then finalized a design for my sister's version. Note to self: rayon and Mary do not work well together.

On Saturday, I got to babysit for some friends who are newly parents ("got to" :) yes I wanted to hang out with the baby!), and I brought along some hexagons to keep me entertained for a bit. I ended up going with different fabrics for each hex, and since we are making two blocks each, I am making one 'warm' version and one 'cool' version. I think they will look cute.

I took a few things off this week...decided that this list should simply be things I have actively worked on in the last 3 months :)

I hope y'all are having a wonderfully creative and productive week. Til next time...
