WIP Wednesday

I am finally putting the binding on Jordan's quilt. Yeah!!! No more guilt for Nanny. Every time I said I was going to sew, she said "Jordan's quilt?" Of course I have not finished quilting it, just sewing the binding to a half quilted quilt.
 I bought the backing for the last two placemats. Still unsure if this will be Christmas! I have my doubts I can wait that long but who knows. 

Lady of the Lake. Love the colours on this one. Of course, Kaffe Fasset is one of my favourites. I think this is my fifth quilt with his fabrics. Love!!

Love the shot cottons too. So light, not as heavy as regular fabric and rolls up smaller, so easier to quilt. That's me Quilting Lite!

For my solids bee this paper pieced block. When I finished the block I thought I would never paper piece again. However, looking at the picture I love how it looks and I learned a new skill. Never say never.
My start quilt. Love the fabrics, however, I need to recut the filler blocks. Feels like a redo and that is always a staller for me. Soon!
All the other projects are waiting in the wings...calling!

Linking up to Freshly Pieced and The Needle and Thread Network.


  1. Putting the binding on a half-quilted quilt. That's funny. I've done it but have not admitted it yet! That quilt looks lovely.

  2. Very out of the box, putting that binding on before finishing the quilt! I love the Fasset colours! The solid colours are what I need for my stash; nice paperpiecing!

  3. oh! very much love those scrappy stars and those wonderful circle fabric on the placemats! Almost makes me want to go out and buy fabric! ( I am trying to use my stash)

  4. Wow.. you are incredible!! I am just in awe of that paper pieced quilt!! How long did that take!? Your grandaughter will love her quilt i'm sure!! :)

  5. Hello Pam,

    The Kaffe Fassett fabrics look lovely with the plain triangles - you have picked just the right colour. I'm a great fan of shot cottons too.

    Love from England,
