WIP Wednesday: Busy as Usual!


I am trying something new… Linking up to Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday. In case you aren’t familiar with the acronym, WIP means Work In Progress. If you are a regular reader, then you know I am currently juggling several projects. But then, who isn’t?

The rules of the link up are to link any blog post from the past week, but in lieu of editing some other post to make it fit WIP Wednesday, I am just writing this one and will talk about the things I have completed within the last seven days.

If you would like to check out Freshly Pieced’s link up party for lots of other WIPs from around the web, follow this link. The title of her post is “I need a nap!” … I can totally relate with that. In addition to being busy crossing things off of my to do list and juggling a hectic schedule, my 20 month old has been sick. While she is normally a good sleeper, the night before last I think I got maybe three hours of sleep before the sun came up. Poor kid must have been miserable to be crying and awake half the night like that. And now I feel like I am coming down with her crud, so that is awesome.

Now, for what I have been up to… I have been busy! In the past seven days I have:

  • completed block numbers 10 & 11 for my English Paper Pieced Marquise quilt
  • done a little more quilting on Flower Patch
  • made the Plain & Fancy blocks for April and May
  • started stitching a hand appliquéd mug rug for a swap… so I can’t show that to you!


Enough about me though… go check out some of the cool stuff other folks have been working on.

Jolly & Delilah is working a neat quilt from Jaybird Quilts called Gravity. Look at how lovely her blocks are pieced! She is also working on a Marquise quilt of her own, be sure to browse around her site if you are interested in it.

Isn’t the camera block from Mary Emmens just adorable?watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 2017 film now

And look at this quilting by Quilts Etc… I am always amazed at how people fill the negative space in their quilts, and I am actually a little in awe of this one. The designs used are all simple, but the way she has arranged them to accentuate the different elements of the quilt is fantastic. I don’t know if I will ever be creative enough to think of stuff like this! I am definitely going to keep this one in mind for inspiration the next time I am quilting something similar.



  1. I really like your Plain and Fancy quilt-checked out the link you provided for the BOM. Also hopped over via your link to the Quilts Etc–wow, what stunning hand-quilting! You have lots on the go, sounds familiar to moi, lol! Welcome to WIP–it’s a great way to see what others are doing, get some inspiration, and meet new people!
