WIP Wednesday [running out of time]

So many things I want to get done, fewer and fewer days before our arrival....agh!

I mentally had a list of things I wanted to achieve before Baby arrives and this week I managed to tick one off of that list. I finally finished my Thread Along quilt.


You can find more information in Monday's blog post and if you'd like to make your own all of the information is on the Thread Along page.

But the other projects remain Works in Progress. I have three main ones: the City Sampler quilt - I've started sashing my blocks together and I'm half way done, but this is my least favourite part of the quilting process, so going is slow. I don't have any photos at the moment, because it's so big already!

My "three-birds-with-one-stone" quilt which will be my entry into the Pantone Radiant Orchid quilt challenge, but is also a baby quilt for friends of ours whose little girl arrived a few weeks ago. If it doesn't get done before Baby, it may never get finished, which would be a shame because I love the colours scheme (I'm not done with these colours yet) and the design (you can read more about the design in my earlier blog post about these blocks).
The two sets of petals in the bottom right are not as light
as they seem to appear in this photo...
Today I've finally added the applique. The purple is sewn down, the blue and pink just ironed on at the moment. It needs another border, but I'm not quite sure what yet. And I'm hoping for quilting inspiration to strike some point soon!


And of course, I need to finish our quilt for Baby. I've now quilted more than half of the stars....

So fun to see the thread-a-long quilt all put together. I've wondered what it was gonna look like as each block has been revealed and it looks wonderful. Great job.

You've got some beautiful project going! The orchid quilt really caught my eye in the thumbnail on the WIP Wed link up. And I really love the star baby quilt.

These are all beautiful, they must be nice to work on while you wait for that baby to be born.

All of these are lovely! I absolutely love the purple one! Great color scheme--those colors all work well with each other!

Would love for you to stop by tomorrow and link this up to Fabric Frenzy Friday!
