WIP Wednesday


I joined the Works In Progress Wednesday group at freshlypieced.  I always have lots and lots of Works In Progress, so I thought this would be a good way to inspire me!  Plus, I just like to join groups (LOL) and I love looking at what other quilters are working on.

Since I am in Colorado visiting my daughter and son-in-law, I didn't bring much to work on.  But, I did bring my "Memories of Mom" quilt that I have shown on this blog before.  I am still hand quilting it, but I almost have the center done.  In the border, I am going to hand quilt it in a loopty-loop pattern.  This quilt has been staring at me for the past few years, so I really need to get it done and up on the wall so I can stare at IT!

The center girls are colored using crayons and then embroidered.  It was a great take-along project.

I really struggled with whether or not to post today.  My sister wrote a cute post last night about her precious granddaughter, Maren.  So, read on down the blog to see what fun the two of them had yesterday.  My Sis is so lucky to have Maren live so close to her!!



  1. Thanks for posting this! Your quilt is so adorable, but then I am a sucker for reproduction quilts! Enjoy your time with your family!

  2. Wow! I'm so NOT a hand sewer, so I'm impressed by anyone who can do it! And I know what you mean about family close by. My family's (and husband's) are all thousands of miles away. We go years sometimes between visits, and it kills me. My boys aren't even teens yet, but I have already had them promise me that they'll live close by when they get older ;-)....

  3. I love all your projects and enjoyed looking through your blog. You grand-daughter is just so cute! I can't wait to see your daughter's Etsy store!

  4. Wow! Your hand sewing is really beautiful! I love the idea with the crayons. Thank for sharing!

    Happy WiP Wednesday!

  5. Oh my gosh, your embroidery is beautiful! I am so impressed, I could never do anything like that. Thanks so much for joining WIP Wednesday, I'm glad it's helpful! Come back next week!

  6. I love the fabrics and embroidery!

    When I saw you had become a follower on my blog I thought you were my mom. :) The little picture icon is sooo small and she goes by Nana too. lol

    I can't wait to see more of your work next week!

  7. Beautiful!! I *just* tried some embroidery this past week for a mug rug. I might be addicted...

  8. That is so cute! I love anything made with the 30's fabrics. I love that you are hand quilting it too! Beautiful!
