WIP Wednesday [Peppers]

I've jumped on the Zakka band wagon! Yesterday and today I made myself three Bell Pepper Coasters. What a fantastic design! These were really quick to put together and are so cute. They are finished, so not really a WIP but I would like to make at least one more so it's a set of three.

I love a lot of the projects in the book, but I really can't commit to a project a week, so I think I'll pick and chose which weeks I join in with, depending on other stitching at the time.

But I do have one enormous WIP this week: it's the quilt I'm making for Dad to give to some friends of his. I had planned on having a completed quilt top, but as you can see, it's looking a bit wonky in this picture.
Michael's arms aren't quit long enough -
there another row of blocks on the right too

That's because I ran out of the yellow... again. There are two more rows which I couldn't sash at the weekend. I picked up more yellow yesterday but got distracted by peppers...

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!

Judging from your peppers, I'm really hoping you'll find time to join in OFTEN! I'm like you, though...a project each week is super ambitious. Still, I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I love your peppers! I wasn't sure of the tecnique so I made one out of ugly fabric and even with the cool design it's still ugly - LOL!

The peppers are so great. I cannot wait to make my own!

Oh, I can see myself making oven mats like those peppers! I don't use mitts but use woven square oven mats. Lovely idea for a sweet housewarming gift!
