WIP Wendesday

 I finally got my Central Park quilt done. It has been hanging in my bedroom since May with the binding left to do.
I also for the binding sewn on my Verna Dresden mini but I have not taken final photos yet.

Back in October I went out east to visit family. I promised my nephew that I would make him a quilt for his stuffed dog and mail it to him. For 3 years old he had a wonderful grasp on how the mail worked. I finally found time this weekend to start the quilt but plan on saving it until Christmas so I can see him open it. He has a favorite stuffed dog, which is kind of sad since he is allergic to them, so I had some doggy material and used that.
I tried something different and stitched 'woof' throughout the quilt. Not to bad for my first time doing words.

1. Sew binding on doggy quilt
2. Sew binding on tumber runner
3. Sew binding on Central Park bowtie baby quilt
4. Quilt and bind Verna Charming Stars quilt
5. Make 3 wine bottle covers - got material cut out for one

Verna Pinwheel Sampler is finally done!!!

 The red and brown pinwheel is my favorite block. I would love to do a whole quilt of these.
I finally got the binding done on my sampler quilt. It went alot faster than I thought. I have barely touched my sewing machine in the past month. I think I hit a wall on my quilting. I am working on finishing up all of my projects so I can start 2012 all fresh and new. I got my Christmas stockings and snowmen embroideries done (I will post photos once I have taken them). I have been binding my Verna Dresden mini in the mornings while waiting for the bus. I started binding my Central Park quilt that has been hanging over my bed since May (when I pulled it off the rod the other night my husband commented that he thought it was already done - never mind the threads hanging out all over). I do have to make 2 doll quilts for my niece and nephew for Xmas, but that should be the extent of new projects for awhile.
