WIP Wednesday

Today is WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.Do you ever feel like you just can't get any quilting done, even though you REALLY want to? I've been that way for a couple of months now. Some of my WIPs are right where they were last week.

But, I do have a couple of new projects in the works.

1. I've decided to jump start my summer quilting by joining "Don't Call Me Betsy's" quilt along. The pattern is the Kaleidoscope pattern. There are still a couple of weeks before the actual cutting of the fabric begins, so there's plenty of time to jump on the band wagon if you want to join.

I need to make a baby girl's quilt and don't want to make this one using the Stacked Coins pattern, since I've made the last four baby quilts in that pattern. This would be a good way to join the quilt along and get the baby quilt done.

2. I've slowly been working on the 2nd pocketbook of "My 53rd Summer. I've finished the quilting and just need to make the lining and handles and then sew it all together. You can see the first one I made and the purse organizer insert HERE. I plan to make several purses and then just switch out the insert when I want to use a different one.

This one will have a zebra print at the top and a pink bottom.

Happy WIP Wednesday!

I will have to give that one some thought, it would be nice to do something that is different from anything I have ever done before!

I'm going to have to check out the quilt along....surely would inspire me to get to working on quilts like I want to.
funny....I have a fabric bag order right now for 2 bags and she wants the bag in zebra stripe and the handles in hot pink.

Glad you're joining the Kaleidoscope QAL! Sometimes it's so tough to find the time to sew, so I feel for you there. Just have to steal a few minutes here and there, whatever you can do. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )
