WIP Wednesday…..a day late!

Hi all,

I have had a couple of computer problems which had hubby up til 1.30am last night! They are fixed now, YAY, so I am back!

You can read about why Lee started WIP Wednesday over on her blog Freshly Pieced. I am just doing a quick post this week, not a great start but the misbehaving computer played a big role in my being late.

I really wanted to show you this quilt that I have been working on, which is why I am doing my WIP post late rather than waiting until next week!

This is my Charm Bracelets quilt, pattern by Kate Conklin, just basted!  Sorry about the poor quality photos, I used my mobile phone, but actually they look better than I expected!

I basted this baby at my mums, also where I work, because she has a huge table that we use for cutting out mass quantities of work related stuff but it is also great for basting large quilts.

I am waiting on some new threads to arrive so I can start quilting it. Hopefully I will have it done in a couple of weeks! Ha Ha, I wouldn’t hold my breath but I can be hopeful!

You may also notice a few changes on my blog – new header (I designed it on EQ7) and matching colours. There are also a couple of new buttons – click on them to see where they lead! The WIP wednesday button, the Inchy Flower Swap button – a swap I have joined where we swap hexie flowers, and Bee in Oz button (I also designed this one in EQ7) – a virtual quilting bee I have joined through Flickr. Next year is starting to look busy! You can also sign up for Another Little Quilt Swap 5 anytime before the due date for the pics, check it out, this is another fun swap!

Whew, I am outta breath!

Be happy,
Jess

Your new quilt is absolutely fantastic! That's a pattern I would want to make too. And I love your new look (I mean your blog not you literally;). You certainly have you work cut out for the next year. Cheers Vreni x
