WIP Wednesday and Janet’s quilt!

Hi all,

I think a new month calls for a new list!

Last months list really kept me in line! This month I feel like I need some play time LOL! That is fabric play time!

The pure quilt did not get touched last month, so it is still lording it over my design wall.

I have made some progress on the Handmade stitchery….

I am painfully slow at stitching but I do enjoy doing a bit after the littles have gone to bed.

I have also made a bit of progress on the Bracelets quilt…..

I am not loving the quilting pattern I am attempting to do. But it would take a lifetime to unpick it so I am persevering! I am about halfway through the quilting.

Now here is something I have been sitting on for a couple of weeks! Not literally, I wouldn’t dream of sitting on this quilt!

This is the quilt I made for Janet in exchange for the gorgeous work of art she made for me….You can check out a great picture of it on Janet’s blog, it shows all Janet’s glorious quilting in detail!


And I threw in a cute little pincushion too….

It is from the book “Pretty Little Pincushions” which I have borrowed from Christine.  Isn’t blogger-land great!

Your bracelets quilt is fantastic. I love the fabrics and colours you've used. Janets quilt is spectacular. The blue point is very eyecatching.

I'm doing that stitchery too, but for some weird reason I decided to do it all in a purple thread. Not loving it anymore so it's in the UFO pile.

Having a list certainly helps me. :o)
Gorgeous quilt for Janet and cute little pincushion too.

I noticed you didn't put "don't add more" on this list! ;) Love your bracelets quilt, very pretty. And I've been there with the quilting. You have to commit to what you do because pulling it out would take as long as piecing the top did!

Love the bracelet quilt! What a cool and different color combination you used there. I like your "new month, new list" idea, good luck with it!

Thanks for linking up, have a great week.

Your charm bracelet quilt looks fantastic! And the quilting looks great too! I can see how it would be a pain (I tried that type of quilting on a scrap and decided against it) but it will be worth it in the end :)
