WIP Wednesday Flimsy Edition

Three flimsy's finished this week. They would probably be done now but i kept finding other projects to work on. Time to set priorities and knuckle down!

Fairy Check
Green Jacob' Ladder
And 30's Hourglass
Progress is being made on the Pink Jacob's Ladder! The blocks are all sewn and just need to be sewn together. Getting closer to having the quilts done!

Finished Fairy Check

Done and delivered.
The request was for pink and I think there is enough in the top to qualify. Super cute pattern that is easy and always looks great. It is slightly larger than my standard baby quilt, and as the recipient is now 4 the larger size was required. Definitely need to get the baby quilts out sooner!
The back almost became a quilt as it is also fabulous. It was slightly too short so I added the extra panel on the bottom.
Love stripped binding! And another quilt is checked off the list! Yay!!!

Saturday Dirt - Pickles

I made pickled beans!

The pink jar has red pepper flakes and the other has jalapeno peppers. The beans, dill and jalapeno are from the garden. If these turn out well we are putting the whole back yard into beans!!!!

As you can see by the picture we are quite dry here. These pictures were taken on the lawn. We are on stage 3 water restrictions.

WIP Wednesday and Q3 List

I seem to have gone a little crazy this week. Monkey brain is alive and well in my quilting world. Could not settle on any of the projects that need to be finished up.

Jacob's Ladder - Green
Jacob's Ladder - Pink
 and High Street Charmer
Charlie Harper 1 and Charlie Harper 2 - the Cheater Panel version
This quilt is now a baby quilt. It has an oopsie. I sure hate it when that happens. The bright side is I found it before it was quilted. This was going to be a twin, however, I started marking and measuring and now my current blocks are smaller that the ones I started out with. So it is now to be a baby quilt.
30's Hourglass
I need 5 baby quilts this summer and fall. So I started a few more projects. I had to pick up some thread and my LQS had all these cute charm squares. I went a little crazy. In defense....there is no defense. Beach House by Kate Nelligan, love this line!
Beach House
Prairie by Corey Yoder. Big hit with all the girls.
Prairie on Point
Meadowbloom by April Rosenthal, my grandson loved this one. It was to be a Bear Claw but think it will be a Baby Plus Quilt.
Bungle Jungle Postage Stamp - hmmm the picture is missing.

Red and White Heart baby quilt
Yeah, a quilt pile I can sink my teeth into. Obviously I was starting to get nervous about how few projects I have on the go.

Quilting the way I like it.

WIP Wednesday - Fickle

I am so fickle. Last week I was in love with this quilt.
Front
Back
And I still love it! However, move on over for my first and enduring love....the Churn Dash.
Ahh, now this is true love!

WIP my secret quilt - still in love

Our affair is still doing well. The blocks are sewn together and they are beautiful. Each and everyone.

This is the first quilt I have made just because. No one in mind. Not even my colours. But it is sure doing it for me!

WIP Wednesday - Climbing to Heaven

I am making 2 Jacob's Ladder Quilts. This quilt block has been on my bucket list since I first saw it. I am not sure why, but I think I have a thing for 9 block variations.
One in green.
One in pink.

Sisters, my cousins, so the same quilt, different colour ways. And one for the mom. A quilt kit I had ordered from Sew Lux. And then promptly forgot about in a flurry of Christmas sewing. I had an aha moment when I found the half made quilt. Perfect for my Aunt! Different pattern same material.
Coordination, planned and serendipitous! Sometimes I amaze myself.
