Works in Progress or How to Have too Much Going On!

What do you do when your husband books reservations for vacation?  Well, if you are me you make a purse!  I am using Quilt Smart's Midi bag pattern.  The fabric is Lucy's Crab Shack leftover from making my summer bag last year.  This one is just a smaller version of the Quilt Smart Mondo that I made last year.  Both bags go together zippy quick, and are fun.  I am not receiving anything from Quilt Smart, I just really like their stuff so far!
I have three more Midi bag interfacings, and fabric selected to make bags.  They will make great gifts!!

Love the print I chose for the liner!  I still have lots of leftovers.  Good, because I need some pouches!

My Hunky Dory progress to date; three rows together!!  The corners where the blocks come together are rather bulky, but coming together well for the most part. 

This is the point in quilt making that I start to feel claustrophobic in my sewing space.  Had to move all those rows just to get to my computer!  Yeah, and that dark shape hovering in the upper right side of the picture...dress pants to be hemmed for Treasure.  Yuk!!  Totally avoiding those, though I should probably just do them and get them out of my face.

These fabrics are the beginning of a pile for a teen boy quilt.  Not my kinda fabrics, but a labor of love.  

From top to bottom they are:

Linking up with WIP Wednesday, so you can enjoy a bunch of fun projects!




  1. love the Hunky Dory! I know the feeling about claustrophobia. I had to spend a couple of days this week just folding fabric so it would take up less space. Amazing how much 'lighter' I feel! Have fun on vacay!

  2. really like your hunky dory

  3. Lots of nice projects! those fabrics are so not my style but hopefully the recipient loves the finished quilt!

  4. Lots of loveliness going on here! Nice to see the Hourglass blocks out and being played with!


I love to hear your thoughts, and I try to respond. Thanks for sharing your time and encouragement!
