WIP Wendesday



 I had alot of sewing time this weekend and was able to get both pillows done for my couch. My youngest said the tree pillow is his favorite. I think that is one pattern that I would make again.

 I also got the binding done on my Charming Stars quilt. My first finish for 2012!!
Here is the beginning stages of my New Abundance quilt. I am actually almost done quilting it. I decided to do straight lines following the angles of the pattern, making the lines 1/4 inch apart, so it is taking alot longer than planned. I am hoping by this weekend I will be putting the binding on.

I have also been working on a wirly gig quilt. I am finally using a fabric collection that I bought 2 years ago plus some from my stash. No photos yet. My youngest was helping me chain stitch the pieces last night - big mistake he about took my fingers off. Maybe in a few years he can try again :)

I love that tree pillow, too! It's just so bright and neat! (And it caught my eye in the WIP Wednesday line-up at Freshly Pieced!)

Beautiful cushions, beautiful quilts - that Charming Stars quilt is so very nice, I find! I made one for my mum, and I'm thinking I might make another - a little more scrappy than mum's... :)

Great fabric selection for that Charming Stars quilt. I love those two pillows too!

Love your Charming Stars quilt. The tree pillow is great. I was thinking it would be cool to make a quilt with large tree blocks. So many quilts so little time. Thanks for the inspiration.
